Having paid a supplement for a sea view room we did not anticipate having to lean well out of a window and look hard to our left to see the sea! When asked about a change they suggested I keep luggage in present room as unlikely to want the alternative - and they were correct. In its day this must... More

On arrival at reception from what I can guess from previews reviews the duty manager was not helpful at all, he was talking to customers with poor body language with elbows on the desk showing no interest what so ever, when it was my turn to speak to him I asked if there was anywhere I could leave my suitcases...

After reading reviews almost cancelled but so pleased I didn't. We enjoyed our stay, good size, clean rooms, comfy beds, friendly staff, extra towels, sea view and good position. The swimming pool is really good , children loved it. Yes, it will always need money spending on the place, it's an old building and has seen better days but work... More

I stayed overnight with friends and we had a very enjoyable stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, our room was good with very comfortable beds. We just ate breakfast in the hotel which was very good; there is an extensive choice of good food to suit all. The cooked breakfast was delicious and even the plates were piping hot.... More

really enjoyed our stay here for the weekend, lovely room with sea view, comfy beds, plenty of extra bedding, and as i was a little chilly one night the staff brought me a heater. the entertainment in the hotel at night was very good, the staff lovely, the only thing that let it down was the food.

Far too expensive for its run down and tatty grandure. Excellent location, but no parking. Grand Victorian entrance and stairway, and function rooms. But serious money needs to be spent on the buildings fabric and decoration. Our room had its sea view, but a bed which sloped in the wrong direction. Loose floor boards under the carpet. A third single... More

On arrival hotel seemed perfectly fine in the entrance.. However Walking through corridors with carpets not properly fitted so they are easy to trip over, In the room there were cracks in ceiling and whole room was on a slant (so much so that the wardrobe had to have pieces of wood under the front legs which were unstable) light...

This hotel offers a contrast between Regency style (see the stair case and Atrium) and contemporary design. Staff work hard and are pleasant and thoughtful. Our room was the best we have had in Scarborough without paying five star prices. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and do not hesitate to recommend this hotel
