I chose this on price, needing a budget holiday with two single rooms, so was pleasantly surprised. Two lovely rooms next to each other, both with a great view and nice bathrooms. The service was friendly and helpful. Breakfast service was great and the view from the restaurant was amazing. Buffet wasn't that inspiring, but the hot food was perfect.

It was a very small room with very dated furniture, which could do with a coat of paint. Food was ok but strange combination of vegetables --swede, potatoes and sweetcorn with scampi.!! the... More

Lovely sea views, comfy clean room,excellent service. It's no boutique hotel, but somehow perfect for a visit to Scarborough.Just a short walk into the town centre or the Spa. Recommended for a get away break. Just lovely.

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.
