After reading reviews of this hotel i did think twice about going. We paid £81 for dbb for 2 adults and one child and an extra £8 for the swimming and towels. For what we paid i thought it was very good. Ok it does need some tlc and needs a bit of time to restore it to its former... More

Great location with easy access of the tram down to the sea front which I think it was 75p which saves... More

We had a great 3 day stay here we. The food and the price were fantastic. There were only two complaints. When we first arrived the reception staff were most unhelpful and quite challenging. Our room backed on to the kitchen and the first night was spoiled by the extractor fan being left on all night and keeping us awake... More

Went with friends on a 2 night Groupon deal. As with other reviewers the outside of the hotel could do with a good paint job to remove the feeling of a run down hotel. Britannia Hotels please take note as this hotel could be something special again with a bit more care & attention. The entrance & stairs are indeed... More

Writing this in the hotel bar which actually is a nice place to have a drink and relax. Booked two night stay in a family room for us and our five year old. This was booked last minute due to childminder problems over the school holiday. I looked at reviews on various sites and this hotel scored badly throughout. Before... More

Tired hotel, great location. Happy enough with what we paid. £80 for both of us for 2 nights bed and breakfast, with three course evening meal on the first night, food was average. Highlight was flat screen tv in the room. We had a room to the rear of the hotel which made it quieter and warmer, friends of our... More

Having paid top price for a family Easter weekend away at The Royal Hotel in Scarborough expectations were high - expectations that regrettably were not lived up to. The staff, with one exception, were courteous, helpful and professional and were clearly working extremely hard in an attempt to deliver good service to the guests. There were nice touches such as...
