We used to stay here when it was independently owned, this was our first time since Britannia took it over. We had room 6 which looks quite new, although on our last day the shower curtain rail fell off the wall, fortunately it missed my wife who was in the bathroom at the time. The window was a sealed unit... More

We used to go to the Royal when it was independently owned, this was our first stay here now it is a Britannia Hotel. The room we had was new, number 6, but although there was a window, it didn't open, it was a fixed pane of glass. There was an extractor fitted into the ceiling which worked quite well... More

This is a beautiful, old hotel, which in it's heyday I'm sure was very grand, today whilst still beautiful is looking tired and dated and would benefit from some TLC. It is very clean and the beds are comfortable, but the carpets are very worn, particularly on the 4th floor. You also need to appreciate it's in a seaside location... More

This is probably one of hue worst hotels I have ever stayed in. I was in Scarborough for 2 days and had the misfortune of staying in this hotel - it is worse than faulty towers. I was bitten so badly by bed bugs that I ended up 3 days later in accident and Emergancy. No one at the hotel... More

We have just retuned from a wonderful holiday at the Royal Hotel. Our bedroom and en suite bathroom were spotlessly clean, with a large comfy bed, big TV and modern furniture. It was also nice and quiet so we slept well. The breakfast was very good - fruit, yoghurt, cereals, hot buffet and toast. The staff were very friendly, only... More

Although the main areas of the hotel are still in need of extensive renovations our room was very comfortable. We had an executive room & apart from a couple of small niggles it was very good! A tile was missing on side of bath leaving the pipework underneath showing & couple of large cobwebs in corner of room, & for... More

Upon reading other reviews I thought that myself and my family would hate the place but how wrong I was! It is nothing like what people say, yes it is old and shows signs of ware and tear but overall I was very surprised. The only niggles I had with the place was at our time of staying the pool/spa...

Stayed in Room 424 this week and had a good time. Bed and bathroom were more than ok. I liked the character of the hotel and would stay there again. Great location as right next to the tramway to the beach or just 5 minutes down through the lovely gardens. All the shops, pubs and restaurants are just 2 minutes... More
