  • "The house was truly beautiful and the location was perfect."

    The owner had put up a Christmas tree which was a lovely touch. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the hot tub excellent. The kitchen was huge, we spent a lot of time in there! A few things would have improved our stay: A small welcome pack on arrival ie tea, coffee, milk, and more toilet rolls! No downstairs toilet!! The storage in the bedrooms. We had no wardrobe in our large bedroom, only a small set of drawers, so we had to hang our clothes on the back of.the door. Another room only had a wardrobe and no drawers, while the wardrobe in another room was just a tallboy. If our stay was longer than 3 days, the lack of storage would have been an inconvenience. The WiFi went down on the second day and despite the owner acknowledging and apologising, this couldn't be rectified during our stay (a slight inconvenience to a couple of the party) On the whole, there were far more positives than negatives, but just a few extra touches would greatly improve the house

    We are so pleased that you found the house to be beautiful and that the location was perfect. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback it is really helpful. On the matter of the welcome pack, we have taken this on board and are now working on a new type of welcome pack for our guests. We plan to bulk buy in the coming months and have as much prepared as possible. Due to the size of the house and the quality of the changeover we always endeavour to deliver time is constrained so having this prepped will be key. On the downstairs toilet the house is over 100 years old and we had of course wanted to accommodate a downstairs toilet but we are unable to do so due to the pipes and plumbing available. We will now ask the Sykes team to announce this more clearly in the details but thank you. On the wardrobes, we continue to add items of the property ensuring it remains fresh and luxurious. Recently we added further paintings, mirrors, and furnishes as one example. Wardrobes is something that was on the list and post the busy festive period we will revisit this. The wifi was a provider issue and so was out of our hands but we know we worked to ensure you were all kept informed we are sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you once again, all we ask is please come and visit again real soon! Property Owner

  • "A great property in a great location, 10 mins to the centre."

    The owners were helpful with an issue we had getting into the property on the first day and also allowed us in early on the day of arrival which was appreciated. One small complaint would be the heating- it is controlled remotely and didn't come on until 9am which made the house cold when you got up in the morning.

    We thank you for sharing this with us and are pleased you found the property location great. The location is beautiful and really offers plenty of opportunity to explore and enjoy this beautiful part of the country. On the heating we appreciate this share and have already taken this into account. We do put in the welcome pack that should you it need adjusting this can always be done but may have been missed on this occasion. We try to ensure that the house is maintained at a comfortable temperature for all our guests and will now include this in both the email and pack. All we ask is that you visit us again real soon. Thank you. Property Owner

    Everyone loved it and had a great time, nothing negative but the only feedback I have is there were a few rooms without mirrors which was tricky at times.

    We thank you so much for this wonderful feedback. We have taken on board about mirrors and we will look to source some in keeping with the luxury of the house. All we ask is that you come and visit us again real soon. Thank you! Property Owner

    House beautiful, well appointed with everything you could need. Some of our party experienced difficulties with showers being either too hot or not warming up enough so might want to check thermostats. For future improvement, long term, the hall games cupboard would make an excellent downstairs loo as there are a lot of stairs for old legs!!!! That said we would definitely come again!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. We are so happy that you had a lovely weekend for such a important birthday. We have taken on your feedback and the showers have all been checked. On the downstairs toilet this has been looked at and due to the property been Victorian we are unable to fit one in the area mentioned. There is another 5 available in the property but we de appreciate the feedback. Please do come and visit again. Thank you. Property Owner

    The bedrooms were so spacious with comfortable beds. The house afforded us with plenty of space and we usually congregated in the kitchen and spacious dining room. The 7 of us only meet once a year as we live in different parts of England and Wales and it was our 19th year and everyone said it was the best house we have stayed in. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

  • "Lovely big house but definitely lacking in some areas ie lack of wardrobe and drawer space in bedrooms."

    Nowhere to hang towels in the bathrooms. No floor length mirrors in most rooms. The 2 rooms on the first floor are beautiful, however on the second floor really need some attention and updating. The tvs did not work. My elderly mum and dad stayed in the room on the back with the toilet and their bed was appalling. Slats on the floor, sleeping in dips. My husband had to try and fix it up a little for them. Kitchen could benefit from sharp knives and utility a screen to hang laundry/towels. The lack of wardrobes/drawers was the biggest issue as we had to live out suitcases for the week. Not what you expect. For the money, we were a little disappointed.

    Thank you for your feedback. Your comments are very out of character for the property. We are on hand to help with any issues during your stay and had we been called, we would have been straight around to help you. All of the bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe and draw space. The family room has a cabinet for storage but we may look to replace this following your feedback Most of the bathrooms have towel rails however if they aren't present, you can leave towels on the radiators or hang on the doors All rooms are decorated to the same standard in keeping with the 4 tick rating we have from Sykes We would like to advise that on the feedback with regards to bed slats and mirrors we are in process of having the bed addressed and looking to source some further mirrors. In regards the bedrooms needing some updating we have had quality carpets fitted in both and with regards a set of knives this will also be sourced in the coming weeks. We thank you for your feedback and would like to assure you that all has been addressed with urgency. Thank you once again. Thanks again for your feedback.

    The kids had plenty of space to play and relax in the games room whilst we chatted together over the massive dining table or around the island in the kitchen. We had ample space at meal times and never a queue for the loo as there are loads around the house. The family bathroom however was something else, the shower was fab but the bath was perfect - ultimate relaxation! Not far from the beach and shops and takeaways close by so we didn't have to cook too much although the kitchen was well equipped if we had wanted to. All of us would happily come back again

The hot tub was a welcoming spot to relax in after some bracing walks along the beach!

    As I am local to the area, it was a perfect location for family travelling from all over the UK to stay for the weekend, as well as myself and my family. What a perfect stay we had! The house was everything we expected and a whole lot more. The facilities are excellent and the owner's could not have been more helpful. As soon as they found out it was for a special occasion, I was given early access to the property so I could get set up prior to family arriving. The house is so spacious and all the rooms so beautifully kept and so many rooms!! The guests ranged from aged 6 through to 76! Each guest LOVED the house, especially the younger ones. The 'games room' proved to be a big hit, as did the hot tub! The youngest member got extremely attached to 'Dobby' - a resident giant stuffed dog he found in one of the bedrooms. Too upset to part with him, we cheekily asked the owners if we could possibly buy Dobby as he really was distraught at leaving him behind. To his delight, the owners let him have Dobby. And he has barely left his side since!! Such a lovely thing to do and it made his break away 'the best EVER'!! So thank you again for a great stay & we hope to visit again soon - with Dobby in tow no doubt!! We would all highly recommend the property for anyone looking to stay in a perfect location in Scarborough! 5*

    We thank you for taking time to give us such wonderful feedback and to celebrate your 4th at RVH. We are so pleased that you and your family expectations and more was met.

    The recycling bins were both full when We arrived. We actually brought a bin bag full of recycling home as we had left 2 bags in the place suggested. 2. The check in and check out times had been altered for the Covid 19 cleaning but the kitchen floor was still wet at 17:20 when we arrived on 24th July. 3. A double bedroom on the 2nd floor had a dodgy door lock which resulted in the 5 year old being locked in the room.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner will now leave information on recycling collection dates for future guests based on your information. Check in times have altered to allow for additional COVID cleaning, which is why the kitchen floor was slightly wet on your arrival, apologies for this it was the last job the cleaner did before leaving. With reference to the lock on the door, if the owner had been made aware of this issue during your stay they had a whole team on standby who could have resolved this issue for you in a matter of hours, it is regretful that they were not given the opportunity to do this to make your stay more enjoyable. We hope it didn’t detract from your time at Royal Victoria House and you had an enjoyable time there. Property Owner

The property

In the historic seaside resort town of Scarborough, on a street looking out to sea, you can find Royal Victoria House in all its grandeur and glory; an incredible mid-terrace house set over four floors.

Suited for a large family, a group of friends, or perhaps a mix of both, it sleeps fifteen guests within seven bedrooms, and is within minutes of the sea on foot.

Enter the property and come into the lofty hallway where your eyes will dart up to the feature lamp shade, the high ceilings and general aura of excellence.

On the ground floor you can find the sitting room to the front, adorned with muted colours of grey, black and cream, where a Smart TV sits in front of a huge corner sofa and a gas fire sits in the ornate fireplace, all before the tall bay windows; this is where you can all pile in after a fun-filled day.

Also benefiting from the welcoming warmth is the dining room, boasting a woodburning stove, here you will be greeted by a huge table to seat the whole party for a celebratory meal, perhaps, atop stripped back original wooden floors and looking out onto the decking and pretty enclosed garden through the bi-folding doors.

A hot tub lies at the end of the garden, while there is a lawned area for the children to run around, as well as seating on the decking to take in the sun on a warm day.

Enjoy your morning coffees and breakfast sat at the breakfast bar reserved for those early risers, or look on as one or two of your loved ones cooks up a hearty full English for the whole gang on the gas range cooker.

Moving upstairs to the first and second floors is where you can find the beautifully furnished bedrooms, with seven in total including three king-size rooms, two family rooms, a double and a single, with over half benefiting from en-suite shower rooms, you can all have a taste of luxury.

For those without an en-suite you can make use of the wonderful shared bathroom on the first floor, complete with freestanding bath and a large walk-in shower within a sparkling white setting.

Sat at the top of the house on the third floor is the children's hideout or games room, where plush seating, bean bags and a TV with consoles and games can entertain the little ones for hours!

The town of Scarborough has so much to offer, and you are just minutes away from the seafront from your front door, take evening strolls along the promenade, dine out at one of the fine restaurants available, or simply get some fish and chips and sit on the beach.

Head to Scarborough Castle to learn about the local history, or treat yourself to a trip to Scarborough Spa for an exciting show with events and shows all year round.

Royal Victoria House is a magnificent property, waiting to be a home-from-home for you and your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
