Stayed 2 nights over the Military Weekend. Lovely bedroom overlooking the bay. Have stayed in more modern bedrooms, but more than adequate. Staff extremely friendly, good cooked breakfast (not buffet) cooked to order. Can certainly recommend this place, and the views from the terrace are great

As someone who has lived in Scarborough in the past, I love this building and its setting. We had a smashing stay earlier this year when we came to watch the end of stage one of the cycling "Le Tour de Yorkshire". Staff were amazingly friendly and professional but the whole place needs investment. Rooms extremely clean but need upgrading.... More

The bathroom smelt of sewage, when this was brought to staff attention it was met with disinterest. The bed was rock hard, the furniture was old and battered. There was a leak coming down the walls on the patio by the bathroom. The room was dirty. The only positive thing about this hotel room was the view of the ocean,... More

This hotel could be great as it holds a fabulous position on the South Cliff, however the decor is in real need of updating and although the rooms and bedding are perfectly clean there was a little mould around the bath that a little extra attention couild improve.Our room was a good size with a lovely sea view but again...

We have a flat nearby and we like to go in here for Sunday lunch. It's best to book so we popped in the day before and booked a table - we also had a pot of tea for two in the lounge for £3 whilst we were there. We arrived at 12:30 and Catherine who runs the restaurant showed... More

Wonderful views from the public rooms but the bedroom I had was basic and dated. It had all the facilities you needed but it was tired and dated. However the public rooms more than made up for it, pleasant and efficient staff. Would stay again.

Good hotel but very dated bedrooms, Bathrooms need updating, Had rooms 118/119 first floor great views over scarborough. very clean, friendly staff and very good food . will stay here again. Just a pity the bedrooms let it down, Room 118 needs a new mattress spring done you could feel the base underneath.
