We stayed in Yorkshire for a wedding and the accommodation was arranged by the happy couple so we arrived at the hotel not really knowing what to expect. It resembles many old Victorian seaside hotels on the outside and indeed the reception and public rooms downstairs take you back to the days of draylon furniture, flock wallpaper and brightly patterned...

Having just returned from a weekend break in Scarborough I felt it was necessary to comment on what a fantastic hotel this is. We felt we were looked after to the highest degree and we felt the hotel was lovely. We had a great room with a nice view and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We will be back,... More

My girlfriend and I decided to have a short break near the seaside and Scarborough was top of the list. The Red Lea provided a lovely room and the breakfast was delicious with locally sourced produce (informed by the waiter), friendly staff and great service. I'll be sure to visit again soon :)

This hotel fights for business in a very competitive market. The building is what it is, and I am sure the owners do what they can to maintain a good standard of decor. Most importantly the rooms were clean. There appeared to be staff in abundance and they were always pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was to a good standard and... More

Stayed here with a large group of elderly people. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Rooms need upgrading further as varied in facilities and practicalities. Food plentiful but uninspiring. You get what you pay for. Location excellent, close to Spa complex and view from sea view rooms very nice. Nice garden boulevard at the front, and terraced gardens lovely. Quiet area,... More

Just arrived back from the Red Lea, with a group of 39 clients from our community centre. A fab time was had by all, the owner Sara and her sister Jane were most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rest of the hotel staff were just as kind and helpful. I would recommend the hotel the cleanliness of... More
