It's nice to stay in a warm and nice hotel after exploring the beautiful Scarborough. The owners are warm and chatty. I like the place especially the paintings. Our room, simple but elegant, clean and lovely. and of course, I enjoyed walking in the seaside. Hope to visit you again Scarborough ana Almar Hotel.

From the moment we arrived at the Almar we knew we had made the right choice of hotel. Straight away we were offered tea whilst we waited for our room and our suitcase was taken upstairs for us. The room was so clean, bright and roomy. Everything you would expect from a much larger hotel. The ensuite had a brilliant...

Just got back from the Almar from a two night stay (8th-10th May) and I cannot fault the place. I was made to feel welcome by John and Julie throughout my stay and I will no doubt be paying another visit in the not too distant future. The beds are really comfy and the place is spotless and the breakfasts...

Just come back from 1 night late deal through Booking.com- this hotel had a high trip advisor rating and I could see why from the moment we arrived, first impression was immaculately clean and tidy - very modern decor and lovely room with everything we needed - bottled water and chocolates and bed was a nice touch.

We have just been to The Almar for the umpteenth time but this time there was a surprise.. it's under new ownership. John & Julie made us feel very welcome and our stay was just as good as any we have had in the past, if not better. Apparently this is their first foray into the B&B world but you...

Been away Sunday to Wednesday (16th - 19th April) to The Almar. We were expecting our usual host but instead we were greeted by John and Julie, the new owners. They were very friendly from the off, making us a much appreciated tea & coffee as we arrived. We have enjoyed 3 splendid, well cooked breakfasts and slept like babies...

Spent the weekend of 7/8th April in the company of friends at The Almar in Scarborough. What a thoroughly pleasant experience, the rooms were well set out and the hosts John and Julie could not have been more accommodating. The breakfast was superb and cooked to order. As new people to the guest house industry it is quite obvious that...

The room was clean and just as we expected, the hosts John and Julie were very welcoming and accommodating. The Breakfast menu was excellent and had plenty of choice from Fresh fruit to the Full English. Tea and coffee facilities replenished daily. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

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
