I did not stay at this hotel, my husband did and I visited him on numerous occasions. The hotel staff were very friendly and really helpful even though I was not a guest, I was able to eat and drink at the hotel with my husband. I would definately stay there next time I am in Scarborough

We checked in with ease and the staff were friendly, we were pointed towards our room and off we went. We had been put in a twin room but weren't really... More

Staff were friendly and helpful and there were very nice seating areas in the bar and lounge. Parking is limited but there is quite a lot of street... More

Do not expect luxury or many sings of modernity -this is an old fashioned establishment and it looks it. I don't mind that much... More

Stayed here for one night to attend a friends 60th birthday (not held in this hotel). Check-in was fast and efficient assisted by a helpful front of house staff member so a good start. The double room, 488, had a view to the sea but was dated and the room felt as if the floor had some form of structural... More
