The experience we received here left a lot to be desired, firstly our room was not ready when we arrived, despite asking the night before, as to what time could book in, we were left sitting in the dining room for over two hours! Then when we went to use the spa facilities there was a lack of robes, as... More

It's cold in Scarborough at this time of year, but my stay at the Ambassador Hotel was warm and comfortable. The room was spacious with a good bathroom (though it needed a ventilator) and a large bed. The receptionist was pleasant and doubled as barmaid. The spa facilities are good and I could have had a massage on a Sunday.... More

......I like plenty of storage space in the bathroom and I dislike UHT milk. Our bathroom at The Ambassador provided us with a proper bathroom cabinet which took everything (10/10) UHT milk was standard in the rooms but fresh milk was available on request from Reception (8/10) The Reception area was a little cramped and not desperately attractive so if...

Dear Alexandralane, Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased you were aware that the receptionist can give guests a small jug of fresh milk if UHT milk is not to the guests liking and that you found your bathroom cabinet to be large enough to store your toiletries. Thank you for your comments regarding reception, as your review title... More

This is my second birthday in a row spent at the Ambassador Spa (2014 and 2015). Our room was very spacious and comfortable with a great sea view. Staff very friendly, spa facilities absolutely brilliant and a fantastic cooked breakfast! I will certainly be returning.

The spa facilities were terrific, the pool, sauna and Jacuzzi were available to us which was nice to be told when we arrived. The room which we had (premium deluxe room) was nice with a room length window and the bed was extremely comfortable and made us sleep in such comfort. The lighting was nice and the temperature of the... More

Me and my husband enjoyed a lovely, relaxing one night stay at this charming hotel and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Fab location, friendly staff, no problem parking, stunning views from our spacious and attractive room. Would definitely return. Great breakfast too.

This is the third time we have stayed at the hotel and it just keeps getting better. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The therapists attention to detail was amazing and very professional . The spa can get very busy even at low season and this makes it very difficult to get changed and secure a locker so... More

Only stayed for one night, so did not make use of the facilities on offer. Would certainly take advantage of them during a longer visit. The experience was in line with expectations. A clean, comfy room, provided a good night's sleep. Overall adequate, rather than spectactular accommodation, at a reasonable price.

We had three nights at the Ambassador Spa Hotel and it was fab. Being out of season, the rates were low, but this did not affect the superb service we received from every single member of staff. Without exception, they were warm and welcoming, making our stay enjoyable, comfortable and personal. A meal in their lounge bar is not to... More
