I could not get into the hotel we usually use, so I ended up booking here, the hotel car park was full, you can park on the street outside with a permit they provide, but be careful or you will get a ticket. The views from the hotel public areas were great, the room was like visiting a maiden aunt's,... More

Recently stayed here for three nights B&B and Sunday lunch. Reasonable rates. The hotel is a bit dated but seems to be being refurbished. The exterior has been painted since we were there last year and some of the furniture replaced. This was our third visit. If it was not a good hotel we would only have been there once.... More

I had a wonderful stay with n the Esplanade Hotel. I loved the views the dining room was very up to date. The bedroom was spotless and while some people say, needed updated I would say vintage and very comfortable. We had asked for a sea view and our room looked over the bay. Food was excellent and the staff... More

This was a last minute booking for a one night stay in order to see a play at the Stephen Joseph theatre. Considering there was hardly anything left to book in the whole of Scarborough I was a little worried that there was not only a room available in this hotel but at such a reasonable price. We were very... More

Had an excellent stay, the room we had was very spacious and had an amazing view of the bay. Everywhere was very clean and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It has it's own car park which was great. The breakfast was really good quality and again the staff were brilliant. Really good value for money and would definitely... More

We had a lovely view over the sea from our first floor room, the hotel is ageing but the food was delicious, served on warm plates and was fresh. The entertainment was good and most of the staff very friendly.

We visited Scarborough on a business trip and found the hotel facilities to be excellent. I have mobility problems but upper rooms were served by an extremely modern & reliable lift with no long waiting periods. A short taxi ride to the nearby CIU Clubs, 'Corporation Club' & 'WMC' cost in the £5.00 region, (4 of us = £1.25 each-... More

This hotel has a *** rating. The room and linen were spotlessly clean and we were fortunate to have a sea view overlooking the harbour and castle. I would not recommend this hotel for anyone who has mobility problems as it is located on the top of the South Cliff (hence the stunning views) and has a series of steps... More

Spent one night on a coach trip. Room was fine very clean, bathroom spotless. A little dated. Hotel itself was good. Food was acceptable but boring. Entertainment was provided and although not many people were there had a good night singer was very good. For those with mobility problems this hotel might not be suitable due to steps and steep...
