Craig, gb3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
A lovely B&B with a very helpful proprietor. It was our first time in Scarborough and we would definitely go back. The only downside in the very hot weather was the choice to sleep with the windows closed or be woken by gulls in the early hours.

Great option for Scarborough
Gary is a great host. Extremely friendly and helpful. The guesthouse is charming and very clean. The breakfast is huge. A taxi from the train station will cost around 5GBP, or you can walk it in about 15 minutes.
