Quiet hotel with distant sea views

Posted 28-Jul-2016
Cons: Disabled access
Very friendly and helpful proprietors and staff. Good spacious room with all you could reasonably want. My very aged father did have great difficulty with the flight of steps into the hotel with just a rickety rail part of the way. This was not apparent in the internet advertisement, but once inside, the accommodation (Room and dining room) was on the first floor. This was a shame - but we managed! Enjoyed the breakfast which was very nicely cooked and presented.

Business overnight

Posted 04-Jun-2016
Pros: It's a very quirky shape, a hexagon I think, on top of a hill so great views over countryside to Scarborough and the sea. My room was immaculate.
Cons: The decor was not to my taste, but that's a purely personal thing, also quite a tight fit, but didn't really matter as a very comfy bed & all extras.
Location: 5 minute drive out of Scarborough, in lovely countryside, golf fairly close but as l was working, couldn't say what else is close.
I needed to stay in the Scarborough area, booked it around 5.00pm and ate on the way so didn't arrive umtill 9.35pm. I was welcomed by Tony (who had rang to ask what time I would get there). We had a long chat about some of the pictures in the lounge, only for me to discover, he'd only been a sidecar World Champion for 3 years running!! Fantastic, what an interesting guy. He showed me to my room after taking my breakfast order.

Ideal location for short stay.

Very pleasant stay even though the weather was not the best. Breakfast was excellent and room provided tea and coffee making facilities. Parking was no problem which it would have been if we were staying in the town. Only one downside and that was the shower. I would recommend staying here but not upstairs. Always try for a downstairs room as they had no trouble with the shower.

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.
