Guest Reviews

Overall rating: 4.9 out of 5
 My room was ideal for one person, and very comfortable. I recommend it highly. The door seal on the new shower unit was a problem for my arthritic fingers, but Mr Lee sorted it for me immediately.
More generally, the sunshine was wonderful for March, though there was a thin cold wind for the whole time. Fortunately The Cavendish was quite warm and comfortable throughout, and Scarborough views were lovely in the clear air.
