Lovely location for touring

Posted 20-May-2016
Pros: The welcome feeling and friendly warm atmosphere. The peace and tranquility of the hotel.
Location: The hotel is near Whitby, Filey, Robin Hood Bay and Scarborough for sightseeing as well as the North Yorkshire Dales. A car is needed
Location excellent for touring round North Yorkshire. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Although the bedrooms are rather small they are en suite and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting it again. Breakfast was well presented and the cooked breakfast was to our taste. The rooms are spotless. The grounds are superb.

Homony Stay

Posted 19-May-2016
Nice and cozy place, felt like staying at someone's home rather than a hotel. They have a scheduled breakfast time for you to come down, but I was leaving earlier on my check-out day, they still had breakfast for me. If I'm in that area again, I'd stay there again.

Delightful place with super views

Posted 14-May-2016
Pros: Away from main town, very quiet and lovely gardens.
Cons: More storage space in rooms - a problem I know due to shape of room but bigger shelf by bedside would help and maybe one over the bathroom sink.
Location: Quiet position just outside village, pubs within 1 mile, cliff path 2 miles and only 4 miles to Scarborough. Excellent walking country!
A real gem, delighted to have found this place and would definitely stay there again. Would have given 5 stars but rooms not quite large enough to warrant that, however the unusual shape of the house makes this a fascinating place to stay and the views are brilliant from every aspect. Super breakfast, and cannot fault the hospitality of the owners - with their own interesting careers and history too. As for the gardens and grounds, all beautifully landscaped and a pleasure to stroll around. A very relaxing and peaceful weekend, thanks.

Pros: It certainly offered peace and tranquility for a very pleasant overnight stay.
Cons: Provision of an outside key to permit easy coming and going without disturbing the hosts.
Location: Near to Scarborough. We enjoyed a good value, hearty meal in a basic pub called Hayburn Wyke a short drive away in Claughton.
Our room was one of four on the first floor occupying one segment of the octagonal floor space with approximately half of an additional segment for the en-suite. The character shaped bedroom was approx 4' wide at the entrance door end expanding out to approx 12' wide at the opposite wall where the bed head sits under the window. The en-suite comprised a W.C. shower cubicle with electric shower, washbasin and heated towel rail. We found the shower cubicle a bit on the small side but there was a generous provision of quality shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. The bed was comfortable and the bedding, towels and room itself were all spotlessly clean. There were a further 2 rooms on the ground floor making 6 in all and the rooms all had names as opposed to numbers, our room was called Tranquility, others had names like Love, Peace etc. There was no evening meal option but there are a couple of pubs that serve food within a 12 minute walk. Cooked breakfast options were chosen from a tick box form that was submitted during the previous evening. Breakfast was served between 8:30 and 9:00 am in a spacious, light dining area which looks out over the well kept gardens. Ample toast and tea or coffee was provided along with a choice of cereals and juice. Guests were requested to submit room keys into a box whenever leaving and recover by knocking on the door of private quarters to recover on returning. Literature in the room gave details of an associated, minority denomination church.

A real mixture

Posted 14-Sep-2015
Pros: Good position Good parking Good breakfasts
Cons: The plumbing so that a hot shower can be had at any time
Location: Located just outside a village and only a short drive from the coast and National Park
The situation is good and the grounds well manicured. There is plenty of parking and our bedroom had stunning views over the Yorkshire countryside to the sea. The owner and staff were very pleasant and helpful. Due to the circular design of the building our room was wedge-shaped and not overly large - although it was certainly adequate and clean. The decor everywhere was very fussy and not too our taste, although it was not a problem for our short stay. Breakfast had plenty of variety and was well cooked. Our only real complaint was that it was difficult to get a decent shower. This problem was shared by other guests and seemed to reflect a fundamental flaw in the water supply. On the first morning the shower alternated between scalding hot and freezing cold and eventually stopped producing any hot water at all. The following days we took our showers before anyone else was awake and enjoyed plenty of hot water, whilst other guests who showered later continued to complain.

A good place to stay in Scarborough but not actually be in Scarborough. Peaceful surroundings. Lovely aspect.
