When thinking of coach holiday hotels, run down usually comes to mind but The Cumberland Hotel in Scarborough by Alfa Coach Tours was very good indeed. This was my father's holiday that my wife and I accompany him on. The outside isn't particularly spectacular at the front though the view of it from the iron road bridge is spectacular and... More

Where to start?? Went on a week's self drive holiday with my mum (she had her 81st Birthday while we were there, I am her 50 year old daughter). Had an absolutely fantastic time. We both have eaten far too much. So much choice, not just for dinner, but breakfast too. Food was always really well cooked and presented and... More

Just back from a weekend stay in this large Scarborough hotel. It appears to be a slightly older building, there is no double glazing and consequently, having a front room you can hear cars going past but worst still all the noisy people shouting in the street- granted there is nothing the hotel can do about it since I assume...

Stayed here on Alfa holiday tour, working. The hotel itself looked a bit art Deco, lots of character. The rooms are as standard, cleaned everyday. Good facilities. Bar and ballroom/social room. They have entertainments most evenings. The hotel caters well for adults and couples alike. And as nice as it is I wouldn't recommend to any young adults or hen/stagg... More

My friend and I went with Alpha to this hotel for 7 days at the beginning of June 2014. We asked for "quiet" rooms, which we got. Unfortunately these were on the 3rd floor, which was terrifically hot. My room was quite small (and therefore unbearably hot) and my friend's room was slightly bigger (not quite so hot). As I...

We were a group of four ladies of a certain age on an Alfa coach trip last week. The hotel was clean and comfortable with a friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent with lots of choice and served on hot plates! The staff were lovely, always ready to help and certainly added to the enjoyment of the holiday.

Pretty tired & dated but the staff were lovely and the place was clean. Breakfast was fine and the service was very quick even though the hotel was nearly full. I would have liked a soak in the tub but our room only had a shower but all in all it was a good stay :)
