This was our 3rd visit to Scarborough but the 1st to family run Derwent House. We stayed 3 nights over Valentine weekend in 2015. The February weather was cold and damp but our room (No.4 with bay windowed sea views) was lovely and warm to come back to. The owner had pointed out that there was an oil filled radiator... More

I came back to Derwent House Hotel after staying here before and having a great time. This visit was a long weekend in February. I found my room (No. 3) to be cosy warm which was welcoming after a cold day outside exploring! I noticed that the hotel had received a re-decoration and looked bright and welcoming. Highly recommend a... More

We had a wonderful night here on the 31st of January. We booked online but upgraded our room to a beautiful sea view upon arrival. It was beautifully decorated and really snug and warm. The land lady was really helpful and gave us an extra heater just in case we felt cold. No need though as the central heating warmed... More

We was getting married so we booked my family into the Derwent House. It is a family run hotel, the staff/owners are very friendly and always willing to help. I really liked the idea of the honesty bar as you enter. The lounge had just been decorated and all the rooms where modern, very clean and just like the photos... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and within 30 seconds of walking into the room we were tempted to just walk back out and leave. It was nothing like we expected, and looked nothing like the pictures that were advertised on the website when we booked. The decor was old and tired, the en-suite (if you could call it that)...

We are very sorry that you were unhappy with your stay with us. If you were so unhappy with the room that you had booked you could have asked at any point throughout your stay to change rooms. I am always available and could have addressed your complaints immediately after check in. As you came to stay early last year... More
