The rooms were lovely and clean, and the staff were very helpful. I think this is the best Hotel I have stayed at in Scarborough. Traditional old fashioned service in a... More

I booked an en suite single room at this hotel. Everything is clean. I love the English antique chair in the room. Just sit on, watch TV and relax. Great location, its just over the cliff and really nice view.

My wife and I stayed here because it was within walking distance of the Spa Theatre. From a distance this hotel looked very elegant, but close up, it was rather tired! The staff were very friendly and the food in the restaurant was excellent and always hot and served on very hot plates. The view from the restaurant was spectacular.... More
