Like the Queen Victoria statue in front of the building, what a pity more isnt spent on cleaning and refurbishing this fabulous hotel. The food was superb and our meal was excellent. It contained a health spa, steam room and pool. Reception and bar staff were really nice although the woman allocating the tables in the restaurant obviously needed training... More

We booked in for 2 nights B & B as we were visiting relatives in Yorkshire. The hotel has seen better days and parts are being upgraded. This hotel is worth staying in solely for the sweeping staircases and all the cornices and decor. I could imagine descending in all the splendour of victorian times. It would be lovely to... More

Stayed for 2 nights at Easter, the check in was OK, quick and efficient. We were allocated a room on the first floor. After seeing the traditional reception and bar area I was expecting a grand traditional room. The room smelt of TCP for the whole weekend, none of the bedroom furniture matched - glass side tables with an old... More

Went on a Groupon offer of a two night break with bed and breakfast, plus dinner on the first night and a bottle of wine. Ideal for us as we could link it to visiting my brother and his wife who live in Bridlington. I did read the reviews on Trip advisor before we went, and If I'd taken any... More

My friend took me there on a Groupon deal. She upgraded to a room with a view. It was a great view and a spacious room but terrible food and no hot water in the shower. Not as bad as some experiences, and not as good as many of my hotel experiences. Perfect location.

I decided to book a surprise weekend away for my partner. I initially saw this hotel on a deal website and seeing that it was still £150 for 2 nights, I presumed, judging by the photos, that with its grand ballroom, stair case, etc. that it would be an upmarket hotel. I decided to upgrade the room to a sea... More

The Dinner was cold and over cooked, sprouts looked too tired to sit on the plate..... was it any use complaining, we thought not... More

My mother booked to stay here last night with my daughter and granddaughter. On first impression the room seemed a lovely family room. Oh how wrong we were !!!!! The bin in the bathroom had water and blood around it and on closer inspection an absolutely disgusting sanitary product had been left and had leaked all over the floor !!!!... More
