Stayed at this Hotel 21st to 24th July with my Daughter. We were in a twin room with stunning views of the Bay, a traditional Hotel and yes a little TLC is needed nothing much but adds to the character of these old buildings i think. The most inportant to us was the fact it was spotlessly clean & Food... More

Spent 6 nights here. Great view from bedroom which was well decorated and clean. The shower how ever was not good and a daily attack from a shower curtain was awful. The food started off great and the breakfasts daily were excellent but the evening meal! Very poor. Veg over cooked and never really hot. Unimaginative chef for combinations of... More

We stayed here as part of a coach package holiday. The hotel is at the top of a cliff, so good views, over the main seafront and coastline, over to Scarborough Castle. It's value for money I think - we had a dinner, bed and breakfast package. The breakfast was very good, and the dinner was a traditional meal, 3... More

We often pop in here for Sunday lunch as we live close by. Today we arrived early for our booking as it was so hot outside, but Catherine the restaurant manager took that in her stride and showed us to a lovely table in the showpiece glass panoramic corner, which has fantastic views over the bay. We opted for the... More

Spent one night in the Esplanade on a National Holidays break. This hotel is outstanding. We had a twin room with a bay window offering panoramic views stretching the whole length of South Bay. The service in the restaurant was second to none and although the food was fairly basic the portions were good and hot. There are a couple... More

We booked this hotel as a holiday break with national holidays. Nice hotel a bit dated in places but excellent service, clean and tidy! Food and restaurant service was amazing! The only negative was it is quite hilly and quite a hill and steps to climb up from beach! Although there is a cliff lift. Scarborough is a fab place... More

Recently stayed here after we were upgraded due to a double booking error at a hotel just down the road. We had a lovely friendly reception when we booked in, our room was on the top floor with lovely views of the sea and the front street, looked spectacular at night with all the lights on! The room its self... More

Have just returned from a 3 day coaching holiday which included 2 nights at the Esplanade. Having read other reviews I was expecting it to be a bit dated and it was, though clean and comfortable. Let down by the bathroom which only had an overbath old fashioned type shower that you can never get the right temperature plus the... More
