Situated on the cliff of north bay. Lovely location, shame about the service. If you have trouble walking, do not come here unless you want to get taxis out which are not cheap. Spent one night. Would not wish to stay more. Nice old building but smelled fousty and not all twin rooms are of the same quality. A room... More

I normally stay at the Palm Court but they were booked. I then looked on Booking.com and came across the Esplanade. I booked a single room and said as I was coming from New Zealand, could I have a room with a view. I got that, wonderful view from the window of Scarborough waterfront and the bay. The room could...

I had a double room , with a sea view , the room had everything I needed. Very friendly staff , nothing was too much trouble for them . The meals were beautiful , especially the bountiful breakfasts. The bathroom and beds were dated , but functional . An excellent hotel, highly recommended . Tip: request a sea view .

Stayed one night in early October. Sat on the bar terrace overlooking the sea front at 10pm ... must be the best view in town. The dining room has similar views through the large windows which overlook the bay. Good breakfast, pleasant staff and very comfortable room with an excellent bed. It even has private car parking spaces.

Three of us went for Sunday lunch yesterday. Although I have given my review an excellent rating, there are a few issues I will deal with first, on entering we gave our name and the waitress pulled two tables for two together and taking a setting away to make it a table for three, just a shame she could't have...

We stayed here last weekend during the Saturday evening and whilst the hotel was not up to the usual, modern standards, there are worse places to stay in Scarborough. The hotel was comfortable enough with pleasant staff and average food during the evening and breakfast meals.The rooms are extremely dated (circa 1980s) and need a revamp as well as minor... More

I thought I had sent a review when we stayed , but I hadn't so better late than never! This is a classic victorian style seaside hotel,but feels very bright and airy; offering a very warm welcome and clean and comfortable rooms. I didn't eat here so cannot comment, but the bar served a nice cold beer! With free off... More
