Very good location and convenient for our hotel in Scarborough. The Grand hotel was 15 minutes walk.Mathew
Really easy to find. It is right next door to Tescos down a small private road. It is in a gated private driveway so is very safe and out of the way. There was plenty of room to manoeuvre your car, it didn't feel hemmed in like most parking spaces nowadays. It was less than a 10 minute walk to our hotel. The owners John and his wife were very friendly and helpful and I would definitely use their parking spaces when next in ScarboroughPhilip
Less than a minute from Tesco car park and very easy to locate. Arrived early and allowed to park without any hassle. Reassuringly secluded and only a short walk to town centre. Owner very helpful.Bernard
