Esplanade Gardens B&B Scarborough

Our Story

The journey to this beautiful area of Scarborough.

In 2006 our sons were still at school and we ventured into the hospitality industry with our own pub. We had various ones with food and rooms including the iconic Emmerdale Pub The Woolpack.
In 2017 we purchased The Esplanade Gardens Hotel. Since then we have refurbished all the rooms and En-suites creating a cosy modern up to date feel. Furnished to a high standard giving a comfortable stay to guests.
Our guests tell us we have one of the best Bed and Breakfasts in Scarborough a bnb to be proud of.
