After a bad experience almost a year ago we came back for our complimentary stay. From the start everything was fantastic from booking it Phillip to staying the night. The room was lovely and clean with a gorgeous sea view, the evening meal in the restaurant was very enjoyable as was the buffet breakfast the following morning. All staff were... More

Arrived on Saturday for a night away for my husbands birthday. On arrival at reception found the staff to be not so friendly at all. Had a room on the 5th floor with a sea view, I wouldn't call it a see view as you could only just see the sea when looking out the window. Room was ok, very... More

I had a family room great size, but bad points were pubes on the bathroom floor and Pillows like bricks, advertised room service that didn't exist and a broken room phone. Our sheets were clean, breakfast was... More

I could not recommend this hotel. We were due to stay here twice more over the coming weeks but have decided to cancel. The entrance of this hotel is impressive retaining a lot of original features. That is as far as being impressed went. Our room was hot and stuffy with no obvious source of heat. The bathroom had no... More

I wish I had read these reviews before booking this hotel.. Booked through agoda, having better reviews on there... I decided to pay extra for a sea view room, costing an additional £84 for 3 nights.. The room they gave me had a view of a rusty old fire escape and a beer garden.. If I pressed my face against...

Normally people say do not believe the bad reviews. As a Yorkshire man, I am totally ashamed that this hotel represents my county to visitors. It is dirty. My room had a toenail on the floor, marks on the wall. The bathroom fittings were broken and rusty. The carpet on the third floor all was a health and safety risk.... More

We were supposed to stay at the 'sister' hotel in a premier room, however they had a problem with the booking, so they put us in a suite in this hotel. Checking in was easy. Although little information was given about how to find the room/parking etc. we found our suite on the first floor. Two Large rooms (lounge and... More

Where do I start????? This was a late booking by my partner on a travel website. Fancied a few days away by the seaside, and not having been to Scarborough before, decided to make the three hour trek up. What a huge mistake. Arrived to find no hotel parking to the hotel. Had to park in a NCP ten minutes... More
