Booked for our Anniversary. Was told we could check in at 2.00 only to then be told its now 3.00. Finally got to room 4 and waited while cleaners still doing it. It was a cramped room with a small window that did not open very far. Went to see duty manager who said we could have a look at... More

Read some terrible reviews prior to booking here but decided we'd done this type of hotel before and usually we have a nice time. A lot of the things other reviewers say are true, decor a bit tired, seagull poop everywhere outside and the smell followed us into the foyer, but our room was clean and comfy, great bed, decent...

My friend booked this for a weekend away for us both using a Groupon deal. After reading the terrible reviews on here, I really wasn't looking forward to the stay and wondered what horrors would be waiting for us! On arrival, the receptionist was pleasant and check in was speedy and efficient. We booked a twin room and we were... More

The first impression of this hotel was good, very imposing entrance. The receptionists were friendly but we were confused about the information given regarding the parking situation and the map they gave us to establish where we could park was so small we couldn't read it! The corridors leading to our room had seen better days, carpets were worn in... More

We have just returned from a coach trip of 5days @this hotel & I was a little sceptical after reading some of the comments left by previous guests. On arrival the manager got onto the coach to let us know meal times ect .We were given our room keys as we got off the coach to save us all going... More

My parents have recently returned from the Royal Hotel (unfortunately the holiday was cut short as my mother was taken ill) the staff were exceptionally helpful and I would particularly like to thank Marie who went above and beyond to make sure that their medical needs were catered for in the short time they spent there.

Impressive foyer ! Strange pokey reception area ? Check in - Straight forward Room - Horrible We travelled to our room through a series of corridors that became increasingly more "fusty" smelling the further we went. The room was small, grotty and quite depressing. The floor sloped dramatically upwards towards the window at the other side, as did the bed,... More

I stayed at the Royal Hotel in Scarborough for a couple of days with some family. I had booked a "Superior Twin Room" with a sea view, but ultimately I got a room in the back of the building, with a very narrow side view of the sea. It wasn't very impressive. A family member who had booked a cheaper... More

decided to have a last minute weekend away and this was one of the hotels only available but as this was our first weekend away this year I booked, keeping an open mind and was quite excited however this all changed. The reception were the rudest staff I've met with little identification of where you can actually park your car.... More
