  • "Had a lovely long weekend with friends here recently, four families but the house is so spacious it didn't feel like it."

    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

    Thank you so much for this great feedback and we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Please come and visit us again soon. Property Owner

  • "The house was perfect for our family holiday, plenty of room for all of us both upstairs and downstairs."

    The kitchen was well equipped and it was nice to have a table in the dining room that seated everyone including room for two high chairs. Bedrooms were spacious and most had en-suite facilities. The only thing possibly lacking was a downstairs toilet, not an issue for us but any elderly clients might struggle to be up and down the stairs a few times a day. The hot tub was a welcoming spot to relax in after some bracing walks along the beach!

    Thank you so much for this great feedback it is always great to hear back from our guests. We are so pleased you found the property great for space, equipment, and facilities. We so look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thanks once again. Property Owner

  • "I hired the lovely Royal Victoria House in mid January for my 40th birthday celebrations with family and friends."

    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. We were pleased to be on hand and specially to make the youngest member very happy to have a new friend ‘Dobby’. We look forward to welcoming you again! Property Owner

  • "Lovely house, we really enjoyed our stay."

    Nice and close to the South Bay. Just a couple of minor points, the en suit bathrooms could do with a shelf for bathroom items. There is no lock on the 1st family bathroom. The toaster is a bit ancient, a new 4 slicer would be beneficial. Otherwise I'd certainly recommend this house to anyone.

    So pleased you enjoyed our beautiful house. Thank you for booking with us. We have noted your points and have them on order, so thank you for lettings us know and making us aware. We hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

    Thank you for staying at Royal Victoria House and providing a review. We value customer feedback and take on board your comments, we will be looking to installing a ground floor bathroom in the near future to cater to customers who find it more difficult with mobility, in the meantime there are 6 other toilets within the house. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "What a wonderful time we’ve had at the Royal Victoria house."

    The accommodation it’s self is well equipped and very clean and tidy. We found the location was perfect for us and parking wasn’t a problem. The hot tub is perfect for relaxing on an evening after a fun filled day out with the kids. It was lovely to receive a text half way through our holiday from the owners asking us if everything was okay. If your thinking of booking this accommodation for a family holiday or a weekend away with friends I definitely recommend it. We enjoyed our stay so much we’ve booked again for next year.

  • "The property was lovely but there were little irritations that made us unlikely to book here again:- 1."

    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.
