“Lovely,friendly hotel”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

We have just returned from a 2 night break at the Selomar. A lovely welcome by Irene. We were in room 8 and the view from the big bay window across the bay has to be one of the best you can get! Room spacious and clean and well presented, the bathroom was small but lovely and modern and had everything you needed. Breakfast was really nice, the fresh strawberries were very welcome as i eat fresh fruit at home for breakfast. The full English was great and would set you up for the day as there was alot on the plate. The coffee was also of a good standard. We had an evening meal at Gianni's Italian, about a 10 minute walk and also The Oakwheel,a pub at Burniston, a 10 minute drive in the car. Both places were excellent! We recommend the Selomar for a short stay and hope to return ourselves in the future.

Stayed at the selomar for two nights. Four of us had two rooms that had spectacular views overlooking the sea and large areas of Scarborough. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We were treated to a hearty breakfast where there was something for everybody. Thank you Ken and Irene for your hospitality and the waitresses and cleaning girls are a credit to you. We will certainly return.

We had a lovely weekend.
Went into to hotel to get our car parking permit street very busy Ken moved his van so we could park our car.
Had a lovely bedroom over looking the North Bay.
Bathroom lovely and clean very modern nice fluffy towels.
Bedroom not the biggest but does the job.
Two chairs to sit and watch the sea very relaxing.
One of the best beds i have slept in.
Nice clean crisp sheets.
Breakfast was good, i eat a special diet and this was no bother Irean supplied this.
The bar at night is very friendly.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea view its £5.00 more a night but the views are to die for.

My wife and I have stayed at 9-10 hotels in Scaboro over the last 15 years attending the Cricket Festival. The Selomar is definitely the best and ranks alongside the much higher priced Park Manor which is also excellent. Many of the others sadly fail to come up to scratch. Family run, the Selomar has everything one could want. We had a spacious top-floor family room overlooking the south bay, newly modernised bathroom, digital TV, tea-making facilities, spotlessly clean and well maintained. You would go a long way to beat the breakfasts - fresh fruit (grapes, strawberries,bananas etc) cereals and muesli, a good choice of teas and a cooked breakfast to literally die for. All served by lovely Yorkshire lasses, very well trained who aim to please. A few evening drinks on returning to the hotel are recommended where the various Broadbent family hosts convene wide-ranging discussions with guests not short of rich opinions and views. It's better than the Houses of Parliament and funnier too. The world would be a better place if run by Yorkshiremen and women! I unreservedly recommend the Selomar ,we will be back next year and, to cap it all,Yorkshire won the cricket too. Aye-up.

PS The Tuscany Italian restaurant is worth a visit too - minestrone soup, pork fillet and palma ham and the best french fries on the planet.
