Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. We try hard to ensure it’s well equipped for family and friend’s gatherings and celebrations all year round but it’s nice that so many groups visit in the run up to Christmas and Christmas itself. I do hope you’ll be able to pay us a return visit.

Motorcycle tour with large group
Fantastic house in perfect location 5 mins to both town and beach. We had more than enough space, and all bathrooms and toilet facilities were spotless, lovely lounge to sit and chill as a big group, with everything you need in the kitchen. Can’t wait to return.

What a great find!
This is a truly lovely house, well equipped, well located and cosy for all it's big. Great room sizes, comfortable beds. Dog friendly! Easy to book, parking not as bad as feared - however much we moved our cars, we always got parked out front again. Strongly recommend for large family groups.

Amazing holiday for a family or group
Kings House is perfectly situated for all attractions around. It is within easy reach of the beach, shops, entertainment, walks, transport and yet on a lovely tree lined terrace. The house was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean, well equipped and lots of space to accommodate everyone. The owner was excellent, communicating throughout the booking procedures and gave excellent instructions covering the use of the property. I would and have recommended this property to anyone looking for a perfect, relaxing break where you will want for nothing. Thank you Kings House for allowing our family to make memories.

Kings House, Scarborough
We all had a great time in Scarborough. Kings House is a fabulous place to stay - we all loved it! Everything about it was spot on - clean, well maintained, comfortable, spacious and looked amazing. We will not hesitate to recommend this property to others and we will certainly look at their other properties first for future holidays.  Everything in the booking process was also very straightforward and all instructions clear and easy to follow

Great Expectations (Exceeded)
I think it's fair to say that we loved the house: that amidst Scarborough's fading grandeur, here is the very thing that (as regular visitors) we have been looking for all along - a top-to-toe (and out the back) renovation of the past. Loved the modern bathrooms, the efficient showers, the comfortable beds, the art on the walls, the kitchen with (at least) two of everything, the literary fiction on the shelves, opening the kitchen door to sit in the garden, the garden itself with its collection of phormium, yuccas, grasses and palms, the fact that the house is kept very clean and well-maintained and so everything worked... In short, we'll be back. Thanks very much.

Beautiful house
Just returned from a five day stay in this beautiful house. Can not think of one negative thing to say about this lovely home. Spotlessly clean with every possible thing you could need. For such a large house it was extremely homely. Perfect location just off the front with just a short downhill walk to the main beach area and close to the cliff railway for those less able or inclined to stroll back up. We had three young children in our party who loved the house and the novelty of having four floors to explore. Parking was on-street but we had three cars and never had a problem parking directly outside this house for the whole of our stay. Probably not suitable for anyone with mobility issues due to the amount of steps inside and out but if you need a large house and you are all relatively fit then this is absolutely the house for you. We would definitely stay here again.

Superb house for a big family holiday
Perfect location - within easy walking distance of town and beach. Massive house and I’ve never seen such a huge and well equipped kitchen outside of a hotel (2 full size fridge freezers and 2 dishwashers!). The house is nicely decorated and spotless. Loads of bathrooms/showers! We were family of 3 generations from age 9 to 71. The four children loved their own space and there was also a really nice sitting room with loads of games/books etc. Because the house is on 4 floors we hardly heard any noise from the children. The owner is extremely well organised and nothing is left to chance. Would definitely recommend. Ps the parking permits worked a treat - we had 3 cars with us.
