Fantastic B&B
From the moment we checked we couldn't have asked for more, really friendly and welcoming, family room was really spacious and kids were in there own bedroom with bunk beds which made my sleep sounder!! Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Really well situated about 10 minute walk from the quieter but much nicer North Shore and over the road from the beautiful Peasholm Park which doesn't disappoint.

Welcoming and comfortable
On arrival we were made to feel very welcome by the proprietor. Our room was on the top floor at the front and we could just see the sea. Our room was a bit cold when we first arrived and it turned out the radiators had been isolated during decorating. Once this was resolved our room was quite warm during an exceptionally cold end to October. Perhaps because we were on the top floor the hot water took a while to get hot, but was adequate. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice. We were able to park the car off the road in the driveway at no extra cost. The hotel is well situated for easy access to the park, beach and to the town.

Best Guesthouse in UK
Upon arrival staff were very friendly and obliging. The room was very clean, spacious and the bathroom was immaculate and well presented. The decor was modern. Could not fault the cleanliness. The breakfast was made to order and plentiful. Will definately plan to a return. This is the best guesthouse I have stayed at in the UK.

The Russell is fabulous!
We had a fantastic stay at the Russell. Glenn and Lynn could not have been more accommodating hosts. I mentioned I was looking for a restaurant serving a dinner Caesar Salad in Scarborough and Glenn was on the phone to a friend who's a top chef in town in a minute. Found us the place. The hotel is charming and beautifully situation across form a gorgeous city park. Highest recommendation.

Great location
Glen and Lynn are fabulous hosts with a spotless BnB. We had a large, very comfortable room (#3), a delicious breakfast cook to order, large bath towels, cozy common rooms. Both Glen and Lynn are knowledgeable about the area, suggested a wonderful restaurant for dinner, walking route to town and other things to explore in the area. The only down was on street parking. It is a little crowded. We would stay again.
