A traditional hotel. Overlooking Scarborough. Dated but impeccably clean. Big fluffy white towels. Lots of places to sit and admire the views. Lovely breakfast. Great location. Easy to walk to town or the beach. Ideal on a summers day or cosy in the winter.

The Esplanade would benefit from a full refurbishment of the bedrooms the one we stayed in required some replastering as the skirting boards had moved from the walls leaving a large gap. The bathroom was in a terrible state as the bath panels had all but fallen off, one evening the flush on the toilet needed repairs before we could... More

We first visited the hotel in March 2014 and returned again this year on 23 March for a 5 day stay with a group organised by Woods Travel. We were not disappointed. Last year we enjoyed an excellent room with a delightful view of the town and sea. We hadn't thought of re-booking the same room and were delighted to... More

We had a fantastic overall experience with this hotel. We were provided with a warm and friendly welcome from the moment we arrived and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Our room was very spacious and clean and we had a lovely view of the sea and Scarborough town. Would definitely recommend it.

The hotel itself is a tad old fashioned. However the rooms were clean and a great size. We had a Sea view window that was absolutely stunning both at night... More

Arrived on Friday to a rude and unhelpful receptionist. As the car park was full I enquired about a scratch card for on street parking which most hotels provide. After struggling her shoulders all she could offer us was a parking disc for 24 hours which was inconvenient as we was staying for 4 days. After this we had to... More
