We've just got back from a 2 night stay at the Seafield B&B in Filey and would highly recommend it.
Location was great for the little town and the seafront. Parking was a bit hit and miss but we always managed to find a space, if not in Rutland Street, then in the adjacent road. It would probably have taken you 5 -10 mins to walk to the train or bus station. There were plenty of pubs and a nice choice of restaurants and take aways within easy walking distance.
We stayed in the Kingsize room on the ground floor. The bed was really big and comfortable and I slept like a baby! The room and en-suite were spotless.
Facilities were really good. It's nice when the hairdryer in a room is actually better than your own. There were a few thoughtful 'extra' touches such as lovely toiletries, nice biscuits with the tea and coffee making facilities, plus a separate switch for the fan in the bathroom so that you could switch the light on at night without the whir of the extractor.
We were given a form both evenings to fill in for the next morning's breakfast, between 8am and 9am. The choice was excellent and service super efficient. My husband had a full English both mornings, I had the scrambled egg one morning and an omelette the next. Everything was cooked to perfection. The fresh fruit, yoghurt and good selection of jams were a nice addition.
Filey itself is a lot smaller than Bridlington and Scarborough but a lot more unspoilt. The beach is beautiful and the view from the cliff top amazing. The sea in the natural bay was flat calm when we visited. We also visited the little museum on Queen Street (I think) on our last morning and for a small attraction there was a surprising amount of interesting and quirky little exhibits. This would be a good base to explore the local area and for keen walkers.
