We always eat at the Highlander hotel as the food is all home made and absolutely delicious. The service is great and all the staff are very friendly. Also the location is great with plenty of room to eat outside if you choose to. See you all again soon. whiskeylil

Best bar pint of beer in Yorkshire!! Room and bathroom clean, spacious and good decoration. We had stunning sea views from our room. I left my phone charger behind--no... More

Breakfast was excellent and the bar meals in the evening were very reasonably priced and also... More

Excellent service with staff going the extra mile. The lift is a little scary but the rooms are amazing and clean. We would book again straight away. No swimming pool. Only a short walk to the cliff lift if you want to swim in the sea.

Was upgraded on arrival to a sea-view room which must have been a family room. Massive. Bed was comfy, plenty of space to put my case (whilst only here one night I was elsewhere the rest of the week), my clothes, my work bag etc. The en suite was also fantastic, including a bidet, which was a surpise! But it... More

I had a curry which was delicious and the other two people in my party had steaks as it was Steak Night. They were also very impressed and the steaks looked good! The place is a little old fashioned but this adds... More

I must say this was one of the best sunday lunches i have ever had and just a shame it is so far away. Anyway... More
