Gem by the seaside
This lovely boutique guest house was an amazing find. Situated near the Spa area of Scarborough, the owners have produced a great friendly and inviting venue. Our room was tastefully decorated and the entire property was immaculate. Bed was really comfy. Rebecca and James go out of their way to make you feel welcome, without being intrusive, and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely stay here again.

A relaxing weekend
We booked The Cordelia a bit last minute. All I can say is Wow. The room was absolutely stunning and so well maintained. There were nice little touches with fresh milk for tea and coffee and a little treat left for us on arrival. Breakfast the following morning was lovely. Fresh local produce really well cooked. One of the nicest breakfast we have had. We will be back.

Change of plans - amazing results
What a gem of a place. Rebecca and James are so welcoming, the date and walnut cake on arrival was gorgeous, and the fresh milk in a little bottle made the start of our break so special.
Everything was perfect. The room is so comfortable and every amenity is considered. Nothing is too much trouble for these amazing owners.
A must try is the evening supper slate, perfect end to a day out.

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights, we couldn't fault anything about our stay, from the welcome to our departure. The rooms were clean comfortable and well maintained also explanations given about being Covid ready. The breakfast choice, portions and food was excellent. Would recommend staying here to anyone.

We arrived on Monday afternoon to a very warm welcome from James, who firstly gave us the parking permit. The room - and the whole house - was really well furnished and decorated. After a wonderful nights sleep, we went to breakfast which was excellent, the quality of the produce was great - the eggs were nearly orange! And you must try the lemon curd.
I can't praise Cordelia enough for a fabulous stay, it's obvious it's a passion for both James and Rebecca and it shows everywhere.

Simply The Best
Second stay at this Guesthouse. The rooms are of the highest standard the beds are so comfy. We stayed in room 6 - it's just had a very comfy sofa added, everywhere is spotlessly clean. The bathroom has a bath & shower and the towels are luxurious so thick & soft. The breakfast is fantastic everything cooked fresh and of the highest quality and plenty of choice - can't fault it. The hosts James & Rebecca are both lovely nothing is too much trouble, its that good we have already booked for October can't recommend it enough.

Outstanding guest house in good location
Just about everything was perfect. The hosts, Rebecca and James did everything to make our stay good. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They obviously love their work. The breakfast is outstanding. The guest house is just beautiful. More like a boutique hotel than a guest house with lots of authentic Victorian and art deco furniture. The rooms are large and decorated beautifully. The bathroom is outstanding. It was so clean, warm and comfortable. We stayed during height of the COVID pandemic but this did not spoil our stay. We felt very safe without being made to us feel uncomfortable. We will certainly go back.

Was nervous about going away, after the lockdown but didn’t need to worry, everything was spotless with sanitisers on each floor, breakfast tables were separate and set just for us, with menus ready for the next morning.
We picked the Superking room and couldn’t fault it - beautifully decorated great comfy bed and lots of storage.
Rebecca and James were good hosts, friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was fresh and very tasty. Would recommend and hope to go back again soon.

Our room (room 4) was very spacious and tastefully decorated with period furniture and a fantastic super king-size bed. Our hosts, Rebecca and James, were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was to die for - very tasty and well presented. I've already recommended The Cordelia to friends looking for a future booking and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. The next time we go to Scarborough I know where we'll be staying!

We were so incredibly impressed with The Cordelia! The bed was huge and so comfortable and the rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated - it felt so luxurious! We really looked forward to returning here after a day out. The owners are some of the friendliest and genuinely gracious people we’ve ever met. Breakfast was wonderful - generous portions and quality ingredients. The whole place was so clean and well kept - everything looked new! Would highly recommend!

We loved everything. 5 star, lovely people, great accommodation. Excellent breakfast. We would definitely recommend it.

Fantastic. On arrival I was met by James who arranged for my motorcycle to be parked on the drive. Rebecca and James were very friendly and displayed great enthusiasm. My room was amazing. It had a very comfy double bed and wardrobe space and a very modern bathroom and shower. The breakfast choice was great too. You could have any variation of the menu which was really nice but the full monty (which I had) has the wow factor. Will definitely visit again.

Definitely 5 star!
We cannot recommend the Cordelia and the first rate hospitality of Rebecca and James too much! Our room was very clean, comfortable and very quiet with high quality bedding, towels, fixtures etc - the big bed was soooo comfy!! As most have said, the breakfast was outstanding!
Given the difficult times we face at the moment, we felt assured that cleanliness, COVID measures and safety was paramount throughout our stay.
Overall we cannot recommend the Cordelia too much and we will look forward to visiting Rebecca and James in the near future...

Fantastic & Faultless
I've stayed in top-rated hotels and B&Bs before, but this is a new level, absolutely faultless. The hosts really care for you with personal touches that make you feel really welcome.

Lovely warm welcome by Rebecca and James. Room was pristine and very well presented. TV with Netflix was a nice touch! Breakfast was exceptional!! Will definitely be returning here. Highly recommended.
Becca, July 2020
Wow! What an exceptional stay...
From beginning to end every detail was perfect. You couldn’t ask for better hosts than Rebecca and James, who were there to welcome on arrival and at hand throughout the stay. The B&B itself is spotless and the little touches, including Smart TVs (Netflix!), made it a really premium experience.
I slept like a log, the room was extremely quiet (and mattresses the same they use at the Savoy so that explains why!)
Overall a fab weekend, thank you Rebecca and James - I look forward to next time!

Fantastic stay with a great warm welcome
What a great B&B. Rebecca and James made us feel so welcome, check-in was simple and tea and cake a welcome treat. The room was great, everything we needed and nice toiletries in the bathroom. Breakfast was delicious, some lovely choices and plenty of food. The Cordelia is located in a lovely quiet location, easy parking and close for walking to the train/ bus station and the centre of town. Cannot recommend it enough.

We have just returned after enjoying 5 nights staying at the Cordelia. The room was lovely with a super king-size bed and nice Egyptian cotton bedding. All food is locally sourced and the best, it was all cooked to perfection by James and served by the lovely Rebecca.
If you want a break and unsure in these uncertain times, visit the Cordelia, safety and risk assessments are in place but with a relaxed feel and does not affect your stay. We will definitely be back to the Cordelia. Rebecca and James do truly care about their guests and we wish you great success.

The Cordelia - Magical
Rebecca and James have a magical B & B. The food is excellent, generous serves, superbly cooked to our liking. Nothing is too much trouble. The hosts are most attentive without hovering. Rebecca's interior design of the rooms (twin room 2) is beautiful. The beds are very comfortable. This is our second stay now. We consider the Cordelia to be outstanding and one of the best B & B's on the Yorkshire coast. Excellent value for money, superb location. Wonderful hosts. Thank you again for a brilliant stay.

Excellent value and service
Easing out of lockdown is scary so choosing a place to stay after everywhere has been closed for 3 months was equally scary. We found a GEM in The Cordelia. Very good location. Excellent hosts, spotless room, generous tea tray and quality breakfast ingredients with loads of choice. A beautiful building that is deceptively large inside and bright airy room. Would definitely recommend and would definitely come again.
