Room only booking option.
On arrival our room was very cold as there was no central heating in evidence. Electric fires were supplied but were inadequate. Sleeping was uncomfortable as we were not happy leaving electric fires on overnight. There were no towels supplied, no soap supplied and no tea bags, coffee etc. despite the room advertising facilities for tea/coffee making. Value for money was poor.

clean tidy and pleasant, room was good and customer service was all we needed it to be. Great for self catering as our room had a small kitchen. For the price we really can't complain. Highly recommend

Lovely stay!!
I stayed here with 2 of my friends we are all 23 and we were welcomed into the hotel as of we were old friends!! Absolutely lovely welcome, shown straight to our 2 bed apartment and then left to explore! The rooms were spacious and nicely furnished, the kitchen was beautifully done and well stocked of plates and cups! We only paid £89 for our stay which came to £30 each so wasn't bad proce wise especially since we got a seaview!! We weren't too close to any other guests which seemed wise since we planned on going out!
The only thing is say was the windows where a little drafty, but you get that in old buildings so didn't bother us especially since there was heating provided in the rooms. Also take your own towels haha!!
Was a lovely stay and would stay again!

Home from home
Enjoyed my stay, felt safe and secure and very private. Tv had a bit of a buzz due to signal, bed was a bit springy, and wind rattled old sash window. Not the ritz but would stay again on business. Very good value for money and food available restaurant was great and convenient.

Comfy and reasonably priced self catering in Scarborough
This was a great place to spend a night. All of the above, clean, comfy and safe. The en suite kitchen facilities were excellent and the staff were friendly, helpful and easy going. Would definitely use this again. Many thanks to David who made me welcome.

Good value - would stay again
We stayed in a self catering apartment for three nights. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The building is tired looking and belongs to another era altogether. We rather liked its faded charm.....and I don't think you can ask for more for £40 for a week night. Altogether I would recommend if you are looking for budget self catering accommodation. If you want something better equipped or more modern I'd look elsewhere. We left contented and thought it was value for money.

Excellent seaside stay
We had a lovely break at Villa Esplanade. Our room was clean and comfortable with a huge bed. The kitchen was well equipped and we had an unexpected sea view from the bay window. We would definitely stay here again. It is easy to get a disc from a nearby shop so you can park for free on the road outside. Friendly and helpful staff.

Not Bad... but...
Hot water was tepid, at best. No spare towels available. Creaky, cold (only a space heater for warmth) and no hand soap in bathroom. A feather pillow on the bed (Allergies? Asthmatics? Not the best idea!). No other pillows available. Bed was solid as a rock.
Other than that, me and my partner rather enjoyed our stay. Hosts were lovely, just needs a bit of tlc. Xxx
