The service Lynn and Tony provided was excellent. As soon as we arrived they were very helpful on settling us in and ensuring we were comfortable. Also they pointed out some handy information about Scarborough. The room was neat, tidy and comfortable and the shower was excellent with hot water instantly available. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay,also the location is peaceful, with Peasholm park about two minutes walk away.

Just had the one night in Scarborough on our way further north. Lovely clean modern room and a fantastic friendly welcome from Tony and Lynn. Delicious breakfast to boot!
I would happily stay again or recommend to a friend.

Stayed at the Hillcrest Hotel again while on business in Scarborough. It must be at least twelve times I have stayed here now either as a sole traveller or with a work colleague. The rooms are always clean and well presented. Tony and Lynn were friendly and welcoming as usual. Breakfast was great. A good experience.

Enjoyed our stay here, perfect location close to the park and sea front, plenty of spaces to park, nice clean comfortable room and bathroom, delicious freshly cooked breakfast, great place ran by a lovely friendly helpful couple, they even stored our bikes as we didn't want to leave them in the car over night. Good value and would definitely stay there again.

we had unexpected circumstances while in Scarborough, which ended in a stay at The Hill-crest, wow what a delite, Every thing was so upmarket could not believe the value for the price we paid. Our hosts Mr and Mrs Elliott, were an exception, always a cheery smile no matter what kind of a day they were having, nothing at all was any problem for them.

The meals were 5 star looking at the egg yolks I thought the chickens must be in the back yard,,
and the Hotel its self was excellent could not fault it every thing top class I would rate this Hotel 4 star for sure All the Best for 2012 Cathy n Joe

Just return from another great week at the Hillcrest. Tony and Lynn are always welcoming, nothing is to much trouble. Our room was ready when we arrived (which was before the time expected). The hotel is very clean throughout, food is outstanding and freshly cooked, You wont go far wrong staying at this hotel. Thanks Tony and Lynn you were great hosts as usual, you always make our holidays special.
