All good from our point of view. - Rating 4/5

We look for three things when booking a b and b.1 Location2 Cleanliness3 Price.This place ticked all the boxes for us.Yes it's a bit rough around the edges but the price we paid was well worth the money.The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shared bathroom and toilet facilities were clean too.Check in was swift and the lady who checked us in and cooked a lovely breakfast the next morning was friendly and happy to chat and offer advice etc.Would we come back? Without hesitation as it was perfect for what we needed.

Very pleasant experience- Rating 4/5

The Arran is lovely and clean and the owners are friendly and professional. Our room was on the top floor which was quite the walk but the room was clean and comfy.The lack of an ensuite may put us off returning but only because we have a young child who struggled going up and downstairs when needing to use the bathroom but we definitely can't complain at our experience, Thankyou for having us.

Cheap n\' Cheerful - Rating 4/5

Stayed 4 nights in early September.Only met one staff member during my stay, Tracy, who welcomed me on arrival and issued my parking pass. Plenty of room to park on the road outside the premises.Room was a single and although quite small was adequate for my needs. Washing facilities were provided in the room and the shared toilet and shower were just outside in the corridor.Breakfast was prepared by Tracy and was ready straight away, no waiting. Plenty of cereal, juice, tea or coffee and a full English.Didn't spend much time on the premises as I was out every day, however during the evening the place was nice and quiet and I slept very well.In my opinion, Arran could do with a bit of modernising here and there, but for the price I paid I can't complain, after all it's your basic seaside B+B, not the Savoy.

A bed &breakfast guest house with full English breakfast which was cooked fresh and how you wanted it and plenty of it. Room 1 was aclean, comfortable room for 3 overlooking the cricket ground at the back so was very quiet.Less than ten minutes walk to the waterfront, city centre, Peasholm Park, Open Air Theatre, Alpamare Water Park and Scarborough Castle - Free WIFI available. Parking permits available for guests at a charge of £2.The hosts were polite and pleasant.The only downside was that the room was a little tired and would benefit from new carpets and bedding.

BRILLIANT!!! - Rating 5/5

Upon arrival I was met by Paul, friendly and funny and had a great chi chat while checking in. No hassle check-in in the comfy lounge.My room was a single room with everything I needed, kettle, sink with mirror, TV and wardrobe.The toilet/shower was on the landing just outside my door but that didn't matter.The whole guest house was clean, tidy and homely.Breakfast was coffee with toast, grapefruit and a selection of cereal, after came a cooked full English breakfast of bacon, sausage, beans, mushrooms egg and hash brown, even had fried bread and tasted great!!No complains what's so ever. It's a cracking typically English guest house old fashionrdly cute and quaint anf I will be staying there again! Cheers Paul and team!

Arran & Quo great combo! - Rating 5/5

If Carlsberg did guest houses this would be the one,hospitality, room, location, food, service, couldn't ask for more! So welcoming it felt as if I was a returning friend rather than a guest. Can't speak highly enough of the Arran &their superb staff 😊A*

my stay at the Arran, Scarborough- Rating 5/5

Had a fantastic bank holiday. Our room was very spacious and clean. No ensuit but it didn't bother us as a shower was right outside our room and the bathroom just a few steps away. Paul was a great host, no matter how busy he was he had time for all his guests. Very helpful and full of good advice. I have not stayed in a guest house for over 20 years because of a bad experience, but my stay at the Arran has changed my view. I will definitely be back, soon I hope.

Excellent - Rating 5/5

The breakfast was very lovely. We only booked one room, but because it was quiet, they gave us two rooms. They even offered to let us stay for another night for free. We slept very well and we hope to come again soon.

Fantastic stay!! - Rating 5/5

Myself and 5 other adults stated at the arran hotel in scarborough over may bank holiday weekend. We arrived to be greeted by the most chattiest friendly guy named paul who greeted us into the hotel shown us around and and handed us our keys. The hotel was spacious clean and very comfortable. The breakfast the following korning was just what the dr ordered hot fresh and delicious. Overall we had a brilluant stay and are already planning our next visit to the arran hotel.


Thank you for your comments.We are looking forward to your next visit to the Arran guest house in Scarborough.

Business Traveler 3 Night Stay - Rating 5/5

The Arran is a hotel that can be described as 'Traditional'....But it is clean and tidy inside, the hospitality is second to none, breakfast was fantastic and overall the stay was top notch.Points to note:Single glazing allows you to hear the glorious sounds of the seagulls...even at 5am.If you like to talk about football, this is the the place for you....Paul, (the host) obviously loves football...sadly, my knowledge amounts to about the words you could write on the back of a postage sadly I couldn't converse with Paul for too long regarding football, enjoyable chats regarding holidays became the main feature of our chats.Only downside to my stay was that the internal WIFI signal was quite weak and slow in the room, but I was kindly offered the front room to undertake my work if I wished too, fortunately, 'EE'4G signal was great, so I could use that.As I said, stay was top notch and would happily stay there again.
