Wedding stay
Nice room and facilities

The Plough
Excellent little gem, with lots of character
From the moment we arrived Ben checked us in and looked after us. We had no issues at all. However we did see how he dealt with another groups missing veg issue and he was very professional and offered them complimentary drinks with no prompting from the group. The rest of the team were excellent, couldn't find any fault. The food was very good, well cooked with lots of flavours, a gastronomic delight.

A cut above the rest
We come to Scarborough a couple op times a year to visit elderly relatives. We try somewhere new each time as until now we had not found the high standard of accommodation we had been looking for. At last we are delighted that everything we want (with a lovely pub included) can be found at The Plough in Scalby village. We will no longer have to search around to find somewhere to stay each time we come be it winter or summer. We absolutely loved everything and will definitely be back

One night stay. Perfect location, good pub.
Room was above main bar but no noise problem. Easy parking on the street. Bed and bathroom both comfortable and spacious. Everything clean. Duty manager friendly and helpful. If you're visiting Scarborough (or Whitby for that matter - 30 minutes drive) and don't want to stay in town this is an excellent choice. We ate in the hotel - personally did not find it lived up to the excellence in some reviews but was ok (pasta was swimming in oil from mint pesto and service was patchy). Would stay and eat here again (accept that everywhere can have an occasional off night) as location and hotel service were great.
