We have a wide range of rooms available, all ensuite, breakfast is always included in the rate, our meat and fresh produce are sourced from local suppliers and GF, Vegan & Vegetarian options are always available. The hotel has free parking on and around the hotel, free Wi-Fi throughout and a spacious lounge bar to relax in serving a wide range of beers, wines and spirits.
So whatever your reason to visit Scarborough, we have you covered, whether you are a family or a group of friends meeting up, a couple looking for a weekend away, here on business or a school looking for a residential trip base location, please get in touch with us and let us look after you.
We hope to welcome you here very soon.

What Guests Say
“Friendly & Helpful”
“Room was spotless, lovely and warm“
“Perfect poached eggs“
“New owners have got it exactly right“
“The new owners have got it exactly right. Both very friendly and helpful. They even gave us a lift into town and back to the station when we left. The room was spotless and lovely and warm. Great shower and lots of hot water for a bath. Breakfast was second to none. I liked the idea of a nightcap at the bar before bed. All in all possibly the best accommodation we have been to. See you soon Steve and Karen!”
“I stayed here with my husband early Feb 2020 where the hotel has been taken over by new owners. Karen and Steve are very warm and welcoming but professional at the same time. The room was extremely clean and tidy and well laid out, the bathroom was spotless and the shower was warm and large. The owners know the area well and were able to direct us to a number of good restaurants in the area as well as lots of places to visit. Breakfast the following morning was superb with a selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and a selection of hot items freshly cooked. If you are staying then you must try Steve’s fry up – The poached eggs were perfect!”
Simply must return!
“Stayed here for the first time under the new management of Steve and Karen. From the minute you walk through the door you receive a family friendly but also highly professional welcome. Was guided to my room which was very clean and spacious and well presented. Spent time in the lounge/bar area which was again very welcoming. Wi-Fi connectivity was fast throughout the hotel. Breakfast the next day was excellent too! I can highly recommend The Headlands hotel be it for a business trip or indeed staying with family or friends and I for one will be back”
