Great position and lovely views from a elevated position of the south bay , the room was nice and great bathroom and king size bed. In hindsight I would have paid the extra money for a room on the front of the hotel as my room had no view what so ever . Room was noisy at night as cooling... More

We stayed here for a single night and were very impressed with the hotel. Our room was spacious, the bathroom was vast with a great 'rainforest' shower. Everything worked and we were very comfortable. (The view from the room was disappointing, as we were at the back, but we hadn't asked for a sea view). The staff were really excellent,... More

We stayed two nights in the penthouse suite. The room was terribly hot, with only a ceiling fan (plus open windows) to try and keep temperatures down. No air com or room temperature control. There was a mini bar, but it was completely empty. There were no bath robes, and one main bath towel provided for each person. Breakfast was... More

We arrived at the hotel to stay 7 nights, booked a year ago in person. Various irritations during our stay (which we shortened by 2 nights) included: being asked to pay for the stay up front, not a great impression on first arrival!; no ventilation in the bathroom - we raised this with Reception who were going to get maintenance...

We stayed here for 3 nights during the Scarborough Cricket Festival. The location above Spa Gardens is a pleasant one with good views out to sea (sea view rooms available at extra cost). Our room was a "superior" inland-facing one. It was a good size, as was the bathroom, and clean. Storage space was O.K. There is no air conditioning... More

We spent one night at the Crown Spa and I wish we had stayed longer. We were in a sea view balcony room and it was well worth the extra cost. I didn't even want to leave our room, it was so beautiful. We had dinner and coffee on the balcony. The express breakfast is plenty of food for breakfast... More

I have stayed in the Crown Spa Hotel before, back in May 2012. At that time I said it was good but needed improving, giving it 3/5 as a score. I think it’s interesting how things have changed since then. The parking has not improved, on street parking is at a premium especially when the Spa is open, the hotel... More

crownspahotel, Manager at The Crown Spa Hotel, responded to this review

May I first of all say thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Unfortunately during the height of the season parking at the Crown along with parking in Scarborough is at a premium, this is something I am sure people would understand at a coastal seasonal resort at the height of the summer. Around 100 metres away... More

we stayed here for one night and had a great nights sleep, the pool was small by fine for me, couldn't get a spa treatment because of it being busy, but the express breakfast was filling and why pay more.
