  • "Felt that certain areas of bathroom needed updating ."

    Kitchen utensils needed sorting. The apartment was lovely , clean and tidy , but felt that items could be checked before visitors arrived to make sure that they work. We enjoyed our stay very much.

    Many thanks for your feedback. Our apologies to hear you felt that areas of the bathroom could do with updating.The bathroom suite was just fitted at the beginning of this year. The damage to the bathroom worktop surrounding the sink has now been repaired in full. The utensils are checked during the changeover and are of course replaced any items where required. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay at Southcliffe Reatreat and we would welcome the chance to host you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay with good sized, clean rooms."

    The host was very friendly and gave some great recommendations of places to visit/eat at during our stay. The location was great for us, not deep into the hustle and bustle of the town centre but close enough for all amenities and there are some lovely walks close by.

  • "We didn’t use freezer as we ate out."

    Only had breakfast in the home. But I opened the door and saw it needs a good clean. Seems ice packed up and dirty. That’s the only thing we could say needed attention. We had a lovely stay. Would book again.

  • "SouthCliff Retreat is in a great location to explore Scarborough and the surrounding areas from!"

    It is a 20/25 minute walk from the apartment to get one from end of Scarborough to the other with gorgeous views the whole way! SouthCliff Retreat is spacious and was equipped with pretty much all that we needed, there was a family welcome basket upon arrival which was a wonderful surpirse! Richard the owner was so easy to contact before we arrived and left lots of helpful hints and tips of places to go and things to see. Great to have local insight on the best the area has to offer! We thoroughly enjoyed are time here and were sorry to leave!

Popular since Victorian times, the vibrant seaside town of Scarborough retains many of its original fine buildings, parks and gardens, as well as its historic castle which overlooks the town. North Bay and South Bay provide two superb stretches of beautiful, golden sandy beaches, popular with families and small children. There are a number of child friendly activities and many excellent visitor attractions for grown-ups too, including the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough Spa and Scarborough Open Air Theatre for live music. Scarborough is a great location for outdoor activities, with golf courses, lovely coastal walks along the Cleveland Way, stunning cycle routes such as the old railway to Whitby, beautiful sailing and championship quality surfing. Add to this all the usual seaside entertainment and bustling promenades located close to the beach and Scarborough is the destination with something for everyone. Ideally situated for touring the coastline and the moors, Scarborough is an ideal base for a fun-filled break.
