Sequestered away in a cul de sac in the town centre, the Windmill is perfectly situated for a visit to the area, with the bonus of quirk-factor. There's parking, although it can be a little tight, but nonetheless very useful for such a centrally located guest house. Our family room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts were divine. The...

I had a voucher for Christmas to stay at a hotel or B&B in the UK. My partner and I chose Scarborough as we live in the midlands so we never see the sea. Also, upon looking at the Windmill, it looked quirky and unique. This is by far one of the best places I've stayed in. The windmill itself...

Stayed for two nights in the main windmill . Lovely quirky accommodation with everything you need. Huge bedroom with walk in shower on the floor above. Proprietors were extremely helpful offering advice on local restaurants and directions. Wishing them both lots of success for the future 🙂

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Windmill, just a 5 minute walk from the bustling town centre of Scarborough, its busy railway station and close to the iconic Stephen Joseph Theatre which hosts regular plays and concerts throughout the year. The Windmill, is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and is the last remaining windmill in Scarborough offering quality self-catering and bed & breakfast accommodation with limited free parking. We have three king-size four poster rooms overlooking the courtyard and 2 lovely Suites in The Windmill itself; the Balcony Suite, for adventurous adults with a head for heights, and the lower Windmill Madeline Suite which is more spacious. We also have two single storey cottages in the courtyard, one cater for up to 5 people and the other for 4 people. So the choice is yours - you can cater for yourselves or be catered for with a hearty breakfast in The Windmill. ... more   less
