From the first contact by mail to confirm I got the room I wanted, to the last day of my stay I felt like I had come home, to a place I did not even know existed. Mal and Katherine made me feel so welcome and comfortable that I didn't even want to leave. The hotel room was lovely, like...

Found The Raincliffe Hotel just by chance after arriving in Scarborough for the first time. We had a beautiful room on the 1st floor overlooking the garden at the rear. A very comfortable bed, excellent state of decoration we couldn't fault the room if we'd tried. Our hosts Mal And Katherine were great, very helpful and informative; did everything they...

Fab B&B in a very good location. Very close to beach, shops, all touristy things really. Cannot fault anything with accommodation. Clean and tidy rooms, very friendly staff and probably the biggest cooked breakfast I've ever seen! Very good value for money, but have been told to book direct next time, not through a web booking agent.

Can't fault the staff/owner for the welcome & attention. Very clean room with new bathroom suite etc. plenty of space in the family room (there were just 2 of us). Breakfast was plentiful & delicious. A great base for anyone wanting to stay near the centre but in a quiet location.

We have just returned from another relaxing stay at this fab hotel. Book direct through the hotel not through the internet as they take an additional 25% off the owners and we should support small businesses in these tough times. We don't go for anything that Scarborough has to offer but go for the relaxing break in a beautiful hotel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Are you fed up with searching for the right combination of quality and value when staying in beautiful Scarborough? Look no further than the Raincliffe. We are a top graded licensed small hotel/guesthouse, ten minutes level walk to Spa, south beach, theatres with the town and museums also close by. We offer excellent refurbished accommodation (not just a lick of paint), consistently high standards with comfortable beds, spotless en-suites, high quality food and most importantly a warm, genuine welcome. Consistently positively reviewed on many accommodation websites for the last 5 years, contributor to the 'Scarborough' TA forum and winners of Channel 4's '3 in a bed'. We welcome well behaved children over 8 years and regret that we do not accept pets. ... more   less
