My fiancee and I decided we needed a break over the Bank Holiday so we booked a single night at the Crown Spa Hotel after looking at previous reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The front of house staff were extremely helpful, friendly and courteous when we arrived and ensured we had the necessary parking permit (£6 per... More

Just come home from spending two nights here. We were supposedly upgraded to a better room on arrival. The room was very small, with a horrible view of scruffy buildings outside. We were in room 225 and can only assume we were "upgraded" to this because we had to go up and down little sets of stairs with the cases.... More

May I first of all apologise that the hotel did not meet your expectations, I am always disappointed when we do not meet the expectations of our customers. We constantly strive to meet the needs of all of our guests but accept that on occasion we cannot please all customers. I am not sure who you mentioned your issues to... More

We were celebrating our Ruby anniversary,booked a deluxe sea view room on the first floor,room was lovely,very clean, well appointed with a huge very comfortable bed and even a telescope to scan the sea with,a nice anniversary card and chocolates was a lovely gesture. Balcony was a bit of a let down as it is tiny and not very well... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a mostly positive review. I am in full agreement that some of the balconies are a little small but with the best will in the world I can’t think that the planning department would allow us to extend them on a grade two listed building. I will however look into the maintenance... More

Stayed here as a couple, surprise break with my gorgeous wife.......left the kids at home. On arrival we found we had been upgraded to a superior, sea-view room. Nice surprise. The room was lovely and had a fantastic view of the sea & Scarborough. In the room we found a telescope set up, at the window, to enhance the view,... More

We are staying here at the moment and I felt the need to review how lovely the hotel, our room and the food is. To be honest we now wouldn't stay anywhere else. We've tried all of the large hotels in Scarborough but this is by far the best. We are staying in a junior suite as we have 2... More

My husband booked an executive king room with a sea view as a surprise for our anniversary. The hotel has an impressive position on the Esplanade, and a very convenient car park. The entrance and the bar area are stylishly decorated and comfortable, and the staff were charming and efficient. At first sight we loved our room on the fifth... More

I recently stayed in Scarborough with my best friend for my birthday weekend (as my Fiancé was racing at Oliver's Mount) and I found what I thought, was the best hotel that Scarborough had to offer. I advised the hotel when booking, that it was my birthday and we paid for what seemed a decent room. The hotel on arrival... More

Not only that, but better than some very pricy and upmarket southern hotels we have visited! This is a really good hotel in all respects. A smart building on a road with parking, high above the sea. The walk down to the sea is directly opposite the hotel through a park with a winding path. After coming back up you... More

Beautiful setting, friendly staff, from check in to the gym to the bar to checkout. Love the meandering path from crown spa to the bottom of the hill to get to the beachside. It was a tad cold but that's not the hotels fault. Stayed at the 5th floor, had a tv in the shower but it was very dim.... More
