This was in an ideal location to take in an open air concert at peaseholme park. The owners could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. The room was clean and nicely decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast was exellent. Would return.

Booked for a few nights stay with my son - Toni and Lynn are excellent hosts. really make you welcome when you arrive and a great hot breakfast in the morning. Situated in a nice quiet spot just behind Peasholm Park - not too far to walk into town centre, or the sealife centre at Scalby mills
