Breakfast was a full English which was lovely and presented well, as well as a choice of cereals and preserves. New owners since our last stay but doing an excellent job. Would definitely return.

This guest house is situated very close to the seafront and within easy walking distance of the town centre and theatre. I booked two double rooms which were spotlessly clean and comfortable. Ours had lovely deco and complementary toiletries in the bathroom. The breakfast, which we could select the night before, was abundant and well cooked. I cannot fault this establishment and would definitely come again. The only problem would be for a person with mobility issues as there are a lot of steps up to the entrance and narrow stairs in the guest house itself.

The host was very welcoming and helpful upon our arrival, the room itself was remarkable, spotless and had everthing we needed, and the main bathroom was not too far at all. The only downside was the climb to the top, but other than that the room was lovley and comfortable. Our breakfast were delicious,I was very impressed to see that we could pick from a list of breakfast items we can have on our plates, and we weren't short of coffee or tea. After our stay I was delighted to find out that we could buy a parking permit for a day to spend a little longer in Scarborough. Our stay at this B&B has really made our experience complete.

Great central b&b in scarborough - Rating 5/5

Only stayed one night but would def recommendCentral position but a bit hard to find. As soon as you are on Eastborough look for some steps with metal railings on right hand side ( if you are coming from prom). The b&b is up these steps. Lovely house, original fittings and nicely decorated. Clean, Comfortable, spacious room and bathroom. Comfy bed.Loads to eat for breakfastHosts are friendly and charming.Hosts gave us a token for on street parking. What's not to like!Would recommend to anyone and look forward to a repeat visit.

Great Location - Rating 4/5

Nice friendly B+B. Great location, a minutes walk down some steps to the Front and plenty of places to eat and drink within a few minutes walk. Our room- no.4 - was comfortable, clean, bright and spacious. The toilet - a macerator - was a bit noisy and the 45 minute slot for breakfast was rather limited. Would recommend.


very pleased you enjoyed your stay sorry about the noisy loo but its only when you flush, also about the breakfast slot, we try to accommodate every one but it still never works, sorry again.

Very nice - Rating 4/5

We booked this at the last minute the night before and when we arrived we were made very welcome by Valarie. The Hotel is in a very good location, only a few minutes walk from the seafront and the town. Our room was on the top floor with an attic window, there was a lovely view of the castle. There was tea and coffee making facilities, a chocolate mint, biscuits and a bottle of mineral water. The only fault was no on suite bathroom which all the other rooms had. But with it being a last minute booking and at a very reasonable price, you can't complain. We have been visiting Scarborough for many years and stayed in several different hotels. The Barrington had by far the best breakfast I have had. Very big with two of everything and delicious. We will definitely be visiting The Barrington again soon.


although the shower was separate from the room it is private and the room has a toilet and sink in for your night comfort. pleased you enjoyed your breakfast
