We stayed at the Royal Hotel from the 19th August for 5 days. As Lynnq 150 describes, it was indeed fabulous and faded elegance. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The cleaning staff unobtrusive and effective. Parts of the hotel were in poor repair, but renovations of the interior were discreetly going on the whole time and in... More

Booked a room for 2 adults, 2 children - ended up with the Royal Suite (with a sea view) - what a grand room it was! Very well decorated but needed sprucing up, for instance the curtains and blinds wouldn't shut properly. The room itself wasn't ideal for a baby, big glass table in the middle that you can crack...

I stayed at the Royal Hotel, Scarborough, between August 23rd and August 26th. From the exterior and the interior, The Royal Hotel looked magnificent, although a little faded in parts. The greatest advantage of this particular hotel, is the location, right in the centre of Scarborough, with no worries about public transport. On the negative side, the hotel could be... More

Firstly I would like to make clear that I am not picky and do not expect to be treated like royalty nor do I expect more than is paid for. That being said firstly there is no parking so if you are travelling by car think again (you can't even park on the street). On entering the hotel there is... More

We stayed for 5 nights from the 19th of August and enjoyed our stay, we had booked a larger room on the 3rd floor and were happy with this. We only took breakfast during our stay, which we tucked into with gusto, lots of choice and very tasty and the staff were very attentive given the fact of how stretched... More

We stayed for two nights and, yes, the Hotel can be described as 'tired' and needs some updating in some areas, but it is certainly much better than some hotels we have stayed in, which were (supposedly) three or four stars. We had an comfortable, clean room and we ate in the restaurant on both evenings - the choice is... More

We were directed by the receptionist that our room was 121 sited on the first floor and to follow the signs. Low and below no... More
