My kettle didn't work. I had a badly broken window in tbe bathroom and curtains hanging off the rail. One friend didn't even have a chest of drawers. The... More

We stay at the Royal Hotel every time we go to Scarborough because of the location and we love the hotels facilities and value for money. We stayed for 3 nights on the 24th May with friends (who booked the wrong GRAND hotel opposite). As repeat visitors we loved the newly refurbished room(s) number 206 with large flat screen TV...

Bought Dinner Bed and Breakfast package via Hotels.com for £104.00. The Royal Hotel did not inform Hotels.com that the leisure facilities were at a cost. When I raised this with the duty manager he rolled his eyes and said i need to call hotels.com. Aside from the poor service at the front desk, the floor boards are very noisy and... More

I heard some terrible reviews about this hotel and was quite concerned. However on arrival we checked in and first impressions on the hotel was stunning, the staff were polite and professional, so a great start. It got even better as we had a complimentary upgrade into room 207 which was a twin suite. The suite was stunning and had... More

What could be a wonderful hotel needs some money spending on it. Booked last minute for me, my partner and our 3 year old. People saying you get what you pay for, I've paid less for a lot better. Corridors carpets were a mess, very uneven, child tripped several times. Staff seemed friendly enough (didn't see or speak to them... More

Arrived & the building is very old & scruffy from outside. Amazing old building inside. Room ok just basic but like the building all could do with money spending on it to bring it up to a better standard but I guess that is why it is 3* & not 5*. You definitely get what you pay for here. Staff... More
