Selomar Hotel
Ranked #25 of 183 Scarborough B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Probably the best hotel of its size we have ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean, great food, great staff and location. Cant fault it at all. Parking is on the street but easily found a space and promptly received a permit at no extra cost. The honesty bar is a great idea too.

Warm and friendly from start to finish, would highly recommend. Good location, a view to die for. Good food, great staff, great refurbished bar area. Been two year running and intend to go again. Irene is the perfect host

Very friendly owners and staff, good facilities and a clean comfortable family room. Parking on the street, but easy to find a space and included in the price. All at a reasonable price. Would have no hesitation staying here again when we come back to Scarborough.

We have recently returned from three nights at the Selomar. The hotel is situated in the North Bay with stunning views of the bay. The staff are friendly but leave you alone to enjoy your stay and you can come and go as you please. Service was excellent at breakfast, with coffee/tea and toast being delivered to your table within moments of you sitting down. Food was delicious with lots of choice for everyone.
No chintz or candelwick beadspreads here, the rooms are plainly furnished but very comfortable and clean.
There is an honesty bar in the sitting room which we never took advantage of but at least it's there if you want a late night cap.
Lovely place, will definitely go back when next in Scarborough.

Room Tip: Sea View rooms are perfect - steps are quite steep though and there is no lift

Wanted a family break at Scarborough over the May bank holiday 2013 . Looked on the Internet and the Selomar Hotel ticked all the boxes for us , ( cost , location , free parking ) one phone call to Irene with a deposit held the room . What we didn't expect was a phone call the day before to ask what time we would approx arrive as it was busy outside the hotel and Irene would save a car slot for us . Sure enough on arrival a knock on the door welcome greeting and a parking slot was provide outside the hotel with a free parking permit for the stay of our holiday . Guest houses in my experiences at the uk coastal areas always seem to be a little tired and dated, very different at the Selomar . The entrance hall is clean, bright, fresh and modern , Irene greets you in person and gives you the rules and lay out of the hotel and the keys which allows you to come and go as you please . There is a bar / lounge which operates on a honesty account take what you want from the good selection of wines beers and spirits and write it down and settle the bill and the end of your stay . We had a room choice of family's rooms , we went for the front room with a bay window over looking the sea , it was brilliant . The room was clean, modern with a en suite bathroom , tv, dvd player , hair dryer , double bed and bunk beds for the kids . The breakfast is at a set time in the morning between 8-30 and 9-30 where there is a good selection to chose from and a hot choice is freshly cooked to order . The dining tables could do will being a little more modern to bring them up to the standard of the rest if the hotel . The Selomar is situated near to the town centre , the beach , a kids play area and a enclosed football pitch, Peasholm Park. Irene sees you on departure were you settle your bill and bids you a farewell and a safe journey home . We could not fault this hotel and we will be stopping there again . Very highly recommended . One last thing, on arrival home we found that we had lost something , sent an email to Irene at the Selomar and it had been found and already placed in the post how great is that ?

We stayed for 3 nights over the bank holiday. Great, friendly hosts. Lovely spotless room with a great view over the sea. Good breakfasts too with plenty of choice. Plenty on free on street parking - the hotel provides you with a permit to display. Good location with the hotel being close to local shops, pubs and restaurants. I can highly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7 - great sea view
