We stay at the Almar every year when we visit Scarborough. Jamie always treats you like a friend and does a very good job of running a tight ship with clean rooms and very good breakfasts. As long as the Almar is available we will be returning every year. Why go elsewhere when you have everything you need within walking...

We go to the Almar every year and if anything it just gets better. The rooms are clean, spacious and Jamie is a wonderful host. The breakfast is always hot and plentiful and the added bonus of a bar to sit in at night means we will be coming back here for many more years .

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Everyone’s idea of the perfect break is different….Whatever you are looking for though, you'll find it all here at The Almar. Our aim is to provide the perfect base where you can experience all that Scarborough has to offer, as well as all of the other numerous attractions of the North Yorkshire coast. We are located in the popular Columbus Ravine area which is very convenient for the North Bay attractions as Peasholm Park, the North Bay beaches and the Scarborough Open Air Theatre are all only a 5 minute stroll away. The entire guest house is tastefully decorated with well appointed en suite rooms. Whether you are with us for a short stay or a longer break, we are sure that you will enjoy an extremely comfortable time with us. With a warm and friendly family atmosphere, we welcome single travellers, couples, families and groups of friends alike and always ensure that everyone considers The Almar to be a real home from home! As the new owner of The Almar my aim is to continually improve the quality and facilities of the 3* guest house. With this in mind The Almar Beauty will be introduced during the summer for the convenience of all our future guests. ... more   less
