Chose this hotel based on price and proximity to The Spa where we had tickets for a show. A booking site placed this as about 0.2 miles from The Spa and most of the distance is vertical so you need reasonable mobility. Staff on reception very friendly and efficient and provided us with a parking disc that allows you to... More

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

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

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
