Access Statement

The Miricia Guest House has 11 bedrooms over three floors which are all accessed by a central stair case. Due to the age and design of the building we do not have a lift, however we will try to help as much as possible to accommodate your stay with us. Regrettably if you do find stairs difficult to climb we may not be the accommodation you seek.


You can book with us via e-mail, online, phone or in writing. We require your first night's payment as a deposit to secure your room.

We are a ten minute walk from the town centre. There is no bus service to the Miricia Guest House, however Taxis can be booked at the train or bus station.

There is also a number of mobility shops in Scarborough were you are able to hire goods, scooters can be hired out for a small daily charge.


Car parking is street parking and no spaces can be reserved, however it is controlled by a disc/permit system. Upon arrival you will receive a free disc/permit that will cover the duration of your stay. Disabled spaces are available but very limited and sadly not that close.

Outside our property we have a sign stating our name, number and e-mail. There is a small step onto our footpath which is paving stones approximately 10 metres long were there is a threshold step at the entrance.

We have a push door bell system one located on the outside and one located on the inner door.
