We stayed at Wrea Head Hall for 2 evenings in August. Lovely tranquil location with beautiful grounds. The renovation of the property has been done to a very high standard. We stayed in room 20. Customer service was impeccable. We highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed the one night at Wrea Head Hall. Our room was very small and up many stairs, however it was very clean. Check in was friendly and efficient. Had dinner in the restaurant and this was the highlight. After a drink in the bar, we were shown into the restaurant for their three course meal. Service and food delicious. Breakfast... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently for our wedding anniversary. Some parts of the hotel are great and have been decorated to a high standard, unfortunately this wasn't true for the room we stayed in the first night which is why I have only given the hotel 3 stars. 2nd night was much better when another room became available...

What a wonderful hotel set in the most beautiful and peaceful surroundings. I had one of the refurbished bedrooms, this was done to the highest of standards and immaculately clean. The food, what can I say only 10/10+.

The hotel is very well run by their manager Anne, who has many years managerial experince in running hotels. This hotel is second to none and the... More

We have stayed at Wrea Head before and think it represents good value for money. Granted it's dearer than many other Scarborough hotels, but it's like comparing Apple and Oranges. It's so much better than the competition. We found the receptionist charming (although there was a moodier member of staff) and all the staff were efficient and friendly, particularly as... More

I don't mind paying for expensive hotels but overall it wasn't worth it. We stayed for one night, the welcome was frankly cold and when we asked did they have any maps of Scarborough, they just said no rather abruptly and never enquired if they could help. I agree with other reviewers that it it slightly tired and quite obviously... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our hotel.
