We have 12 beautiful en-suite bedrooms varying from singles, doubles, superiors, and family rooms. 2 of our standard double bedrooms are also dog friendly. They have all you need for a comfortable stay and we are more than happy to help with additional extras such as arranging flowers for that special occasion. All our rates include breakfast and we also have some great offers available throughout the year, please do contact us for more information.

Stayed midweek on the 3 for 2 offer. Really impressed, the hotel was lovely and clean and felt very safe. The breakfast was excellent, with a good choice of options. Evening meals in the restaurant were outstanding. We will be returning.


The Downe Arms is a very popular wedding venue within the Scarborough area and offers spaces for civil ceremonies, reception and wedding breakfast meaning your whole day can be celebrated in one beautiful venue. However, if you would prefer a church ceremony, we are next door to the beautiful All Saints Church of Wykeham


We have 2 beautiful public dining areas within the Downe Arms Hotel both serving the same menu and perfect spaces for a delicious bite to eat created by our wonderful team of chefs.

Function and Conference Hire

With a relaxed atmosphere, excellent facilities and a perfect location on the A170 just 10 minutes from Scarborough train station and a good middle point for regional events we are the ideal venue for functions, gatherings, business meetings and conferences with 3 private rooms and 2 public eating areas to suit different requirements.
