We stayed in one of the luxury 5 star apartments. Lovely, modern, comfortable and clean. Fantastic sea views and only 5 minutes from Scarborough Castle. Would definitely recommend. Good value for money. Tea coffee biscuits available. Free parking with parking permits as well.

Had a very pleasant stay here. If I had to find any fault it would be that my room was to small for me. The staff are very kind, helpful and fun. The position of the place is superb with views that are amazing. Well done to all, you have a fantastic place there.

We checked out a number of B&Bs in Scarborough before deciding on The Helaina. On arrival we were greeted by Sharon who was friendly and efficient. We opted for a sea view room which was a good decision. Everything was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. Bathrobes, TV, toiletries and refreshments were provided.

Loved this B&B - will definitely return. We had a great sea view. The place was spotless, friendly and the breakfast was fabulous. We loved the honesty bar and the location 5mins from the castle could not be better. You even get a free parking ticket for 48hrs!!! The rooms were a bit small but this is an older style... More

Just a quick review. Met by Tom (who had actually left a message saying he would be out for 20 minutes should we arrive early - we didn't, but nice touch I thought) who was really canny.
