Emma Stockdale and Sean's stay
Purchased as a present for my niece as she doesn't get a break very often from her children and works very hard. She enjoyed her stay and thought the hotel lovely with lots of history. They enjoyed the breakfast but had booked for an evening meal in the hotel, due to the bad weather. They were very disappointed with both their meals, bland and not very nice. They didnt complain because they didnt want to make a fuss. Felt for them as they dont go out often and qe wanted it to be special for them.

Great Location
Limited parking but can park on the road with a disc though it is difficult when it’s a bank holiday weekend. Hotel a touch dated but our rooms were very spacious, both with sea views and one even had a balcony though a king bed would have been preferable. Nice terrace to have a drink in the sun shine and great views across Scarborough. Very reasonably priced rooms, would definitely return.

Good hotel for the price paid
The room was big with a large bathroom but it was a family room. There is no wifi in rooms which meant work had to be done in public areas. the hotel is quiet so easy to sleep with good views from the terrace

Spectacular Views
A beautiful hotel that must have been amazing in it's day but is a bit tired and worn these days. That said, the staff were friendly and helpful; the views of Scarborough were fantastic; breakfast was spot on; it's an easy walk to the beach and/or Spa complex and our family room was plenty big enough for the four of us, (2 adults and 2 children). The mattress was a little antiquated with visible springs at the side but we slept just fine; the walls are a bit thin; the floorboards creak and squeak underfoot and the extremely poor wi-fi is pretty inexcusable these days but overall we enjoyed our stay and it was good value for money.

Great location
Great location on the hill overlooking the beach. The staff were very helpful, they even posted our NowTv stick back to us after leaving it in the room after check out. The decor is dated, but we quite enjoyed it, like stepping back in time and everyrhing was very clean so we can't complain!
