A bar meal which was far more than I really expected and certainly solved any niggling problems of... More

This was my second visit to the hotel again with some of my friends. Lovely rooms, comfy beds and great location, would highly recommend! Didn't eat there this time but had a meal in the bar last time and the food was wonderful. Will be back without a doubt.

Having never been to Scarborough, my husband and I went on the hotel website (rookie mistake) and booked the Ambassador Hotel for one night for our 5th wedding anniversary. What we got was room 18, which you reach by walking through the restaurant, through a fire door, and then down a dim corridor to the back of the hotel. When... More
