Six of us took advantage of a Groupon deal for a short weekend break at the Royal with B&B, evening meal, a free bottle of wine and use of the Spa facilities. We had three twin rooms all of which were clean and tidy and looking like they had recently been given a coat of paint and in our room... More

There was nothing good to say about this hotel. The room was dirty, the restaurant was full, the facilities (spa, steam room) were unavailable. The staff were arrogant and rude and despite complaining to the CEO, the Manager at the hotel and emailing head office, to date we have not even had the courtesy of a reply or an explanation....

Just got back from a 1 night stay in this hotel. We go to Scarborough a lot, and have stayed in the Grand Hotel too. But for all of us this was the best hotel. It certainly has the wow factor as you go through the entrance. They just don’t make hotels like this anymore. The stair case and entrance... More

We booked the hotel for one night with our 2 kids during half term. I expected it to be dated but thought it would be ok as we were only there for one night. It also had a pool which we thought would be good for the kids. When checking in the hotel they take payment before you see your... More

I bought my friend and I a 2 day break at the Royal via Wowcher because I had been there some years ago and had a hugely enjoyable experience. The hotel I remembered no longer exists. That one was well cared for and welcoming. It had a good staff team and the food was excellent. This version of the Hotel... More

We stayed at the Royal for one night during half term: a family of four for bed and breakfast. We were able to check in early on arrival. The entrance lobby is a very grandiose affair reminiscent of times gone by. Check in was smooth and efficient. The family room was fine given what we had paid and provided a... More
