We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Phoenix guest house and it was lovely! Me and me husband wanted a little break for our 7 week old sons first holiday and The Phoenix Guest house made it a very enjoyable one! Jennifer was very helpful and welcoming right from booking our stay. She offered cot, steriliser and changing may which was much appreciated for our son. Great location next to park. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment. Would definatly recommend! Thanks Phoenix! Read more

A quick overnight stay. The room was lovely and very clean. Couldnt ask for more really. I would recommend.
The beds are very hard though. Read more
Some like soft beds, others something firmer. I am sorry that the reviewer did not find their's comfortable, but since others have commented favourably about the same bed, I shall moniter the situation for now and ask for feed back from future guests.
Stopped for 2 nights - Could not fault the guest house. Host , room and breakfast were all fab. Read more

My mum, 12yr old son & myself stayed in the pheonix 17th/18th August, im ashamed to say we was very apprehensive about arriving at our guest house for the weekend because of the price being low we didnt know what to expect, but we were pleasantly suprised, it was very comfortable, clean, the room was lovely & bright. The landlady was very accomodating & friendly. There was more than enough to choose from for breakfast & was delicious. We enjoyed our stay & would highly recommend it. Read more
Stayed 2 nights for a match at Marine Rd. lost the match but enjoyed the stay. Read more

4 night stay with my 7 year old lad. Nice hotel but stairs to top floor a bit hard work. Didn't actually eat there myself but landlady bought in the food by boy likes and made them by arrangement each night. Fabulous service. Read more
Very comfortable Read more
Myself and my six year old granddaughter stayed from friday til sunday and enjoyed a traditional sea=side holiday. Read more
wanted somewhere differant to stay whilst up in Yorkshire, not been to northside of scarbough before. Read more
Enjoyable and fun Read more
Of course with this hot weather we are all sleeping with our windows open. Seagulls are all part of the seaside holiday experience, and at present they are particularly noisy while their youngsters are starting to fly from the nest. One came down in the back yard, and we put it on the flat roof to encourage it to fly away. There was much trepidation as we and some of our guests watched it survive attacks from rival gulls and the a cat!!! creeping up on it.
We needed a break and it was just what we needed. Felt at home and relaxed instantly. Read more
a really lovely place to stay that made our weekend extra special. Read more
It really brightens up our day to get a review like this. Many thanks to the reviewer.
It was only a short stay due to daughter wanting to see Olly Murrs at a local venue. Read more
Old- fashioned style decor with a tiny 'bathroom'. However, the beds were comfy and it was literally only a few minutes walking distance away from the Open-Air Theatre which was the reason for my visit. Short walk to North Bay Beach. Read more
The phoenix is a nice b&b in a good location close to the north beach which is the quieter not so touristy part of Scarborough and a 5min drive to south beach. Local amenities on the door step including fish and chips :) Family room was quite big and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice but I was charged quite a bit for my 3 year old son and he only ate cereal (very steep!) but the adult breakfast definitely good value. Overall its a nice clean friendly place in a good location. Read more
We charge a flat rate of £3 per child per breakfast, regardless of how much they eat, and some can eat as much as an adult. The adult rate is just £5. When you consider that you get a pot of tea or fresh ground coffee, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, then a choice of either a full cooked breakfast, or a substantial continental breakfast, I think that is very good value, and if you do not eat much at breakfast time, you always have the option of staying room only.
very relaxing and comfortable accomodation,perfect. Read more
We do a good cooked breakfast, continental and vegetarian options are available, and there are cereals, fresh fruit etc.to help yourself to on the sideboard. However, not everyone wants to tuck in at breakfast time.I always ask when people arrive and haven't booked a breakfast if they want one, that is so I know what numbers I am catering for in the morning, If the sun was shining, I would go with the lady who wanted her coffee and croissant while watching the waves lapping the shore.
Adequate for a 2 night stay but due to size of rooms difficult to put case anywhere other than under bed. Would not like to stay for a week in these cramped conditions. Read more
Some of our rooms are not large, but they have all passed inspection by the AA when we got our 3 star rating. The lady who did the inspection stayed in the room that the reviewer had. I had no idea who she was at the time and I can tell you that she did a thorough job, pulling out the bed to inspect behind, and she viewed all the room before she left!
A rather small and dated bedroom with small en suite. Sink in the bedroom. Breakfast was adequate (sausages very good). Read more
Anyone who watches Strictly will know that there is always one judge it is very hard to get good marks from.
They found us clean and comfortable, but the room 'dated'. The Phoenix is over 100years old and although I am steadily updating equipment, bedding etc., I do not want to impose a modern style of decor that would be out of keeping. The room is next on the list for a new flatscreen TV with DVD. 'Small ensuite' fair comment but the shower is hot and works. Please note our other reviews.
very welcome on arrival .room very clean standed of beds was first class.over all first class and hope to come again this summer 2013 Read more
It is really super to get a review like this. It is exactly what we aim for, that our guests enjoy their stay and want to return. It makes all the effort behind the scenes worth while.
Pleasant stay. Rooms are small but adequate and very good value for money. Useful to have the family room with side room for our daughter. Read more
We have two family rooms. Room 3 is the larger of the two, but when the reviewer booked this had already been taken so I am pleased to hear that they were satisfied with their stay in room 7. Both rooms have ensuite shower and toilet and a side room attached which gives an extra degree of privacy especialy useful with older children, or indeed groups of adults willing to share.
Room was clean and presenable with adequate facilities for an overnight stay. Read more
Me and my partner stayed for 2 nights, it was a very friendly stay, the staff were helpful. We went for the nightlife and the guesthouse is 20 minute walk or 10 minute taxi ride. The arcades are also a shirt distance, a nice walk to fill a little time. We didn't have any food in the hotel so I can't comment on it but it did smell lovely. All in all a great value for money. Read more
we stayed for 2 nights was made very welcome and nothing too much trouble for them , was clean and tea and coffee when you wanted it , they even looked after our luggage on our last day as train wasnt till evening Read more
Beakers? Please, just ask us! We keep a supply of mugs in the kitchen for just this reason, but when new guests first arrive, out of politeness we put out the cups until they express a preference.
Room 7, in which the reviewer stayed, is up 2 flights of stairs, and probably better suited to a younger family, room 3 would have been a better choice for them had it been free. However I am very glad this did not spoil their stay, and I hope that next time I remember the beakers.
my overnight stay was very comfortable and welcoming. the breakfast was excellent. im sure if jenny could have sorted out the weather she would have. Read more
very enjoyable Read more
We chose The Phoenix Guest House because of the location, it was conveniently situated to reach the town centre, North Bay and South Bay on foot. Read more
The Phoenix was located very close to Peasholm Park and with easy access to the North Shore and local shops which made it very convenient for us (a couple holidaying with my family on a short trip). The rooms and facilities were very clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful about the facilities upon arrival and the parking facilities, which made our trip a lot easier! The breakfast was great (it had vegetarian options!) & the food items were fresh. Read more
We are a small establishment and have not the space to provide all the facilities of an expensive hotel, but we do our best with what we have, and hope that our friendliness and attention to the small things that make a holiday run smoothly makes up for this. My thanks to the reviewer, I am very glad that she enjoyed her stay.
A 3 night break in Scarborough was just the tonic we needed. Read more
The guest House was very busy when this couple stayed. It is good to know that we did not let them down on the friendliness, cleanliness and staff service side of things.
Very pleasant Read more
Thankyou for such a good review. I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay.
exellent all round. Read more
I am very lucky to have a housekeeper who is an absolute treasure. Top marks goes to her.
Stayed for 3 nights - our hosts were wonderful, very friendly & helpful. Rooms were cleaned and re-stocked (tea/coffee etc) daily and communal areas were also spotless. Read more
You are quite right, we have been upgrading our towels to larger more luxururious ones. Sorry that you seem to have experienced some teething problems, we will look out for this in future.
We stayed for 1 night as we working in the area with a late finish and an early start the next day.
The Phoenix was ideally situated close to Scarborough town centre.
The Landlady was friendly and gave us good advice as to where to find a good place to eat for the evening.
As we were starting early, the Landlady offered to leave breakfast things out for us so that we were not starting work on an empty stomach; many thanks. Read more
We just try to do our best for our guests, we want them to enjoy themselves, we want them to return. My thanks to the gentlemen who gave us this excellent review, to read something like this makes all our hard work worth while.
The Phoenix is very conveniently located, just 2 minutes stroll from beautiful Peasholm park, 6 minutes from the magnificent sweep of north bay's sands. Scarborough cricket ground, the open air theatre, Scarborough bowls centre, the sea life centre, and Hollywood plaza cinema are just some of the attractions close by. We offer very good value with prices from £20 per person per night for en-suite accommodation and scrumptious breakfasts for £6 per adult and £4 per child, which will set you up for the day. Cleanliness is assured throughout and we trust that you will find us friendly and helpful, our aim is to provide for you a comfortable and enjoyable place to stay.
