Booked here for a short break at February half term and we were impressed. We had a room on the front with an amazing view across the bay. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. There is parking for the hotel and it is only a short walk into town. Yes the rooms are basic but they are clean, warm and... More

Terrible, the people running it didn't have the time of day for you. The girl at the bar was more interested in her phone than serving a customer even though there were only two families in the hotel.we were told to be quiet at 10.30 because we were keeping her kids awake! Then the bar was shut ,PS cans again... More

Can't even be bothered to write about how apalling the service was here, how cold it was, and will not be recommending this to Anyone EVER, would rather stay on a bench in peasholme park if I ever can bring myself to come back to Scarborough , it would probably be warmer ...... Traumatised !

The location is good. Its near the beach with good views and a short walk into town. The staff were helpful and polite but the family room we had was pretty shabby and looked very tired with chipped paint and peeling wallpaper. Needs a renovation. Still it was cheap so you get what you pay for i guess

Lovely family run place, bright light rooms, very clean and pleasant as is who venue. Nicely cooked breakfast with variety of other options. Games room and bar, situated by the sea on the north side with lovely views of the castle. South bay easy to walk to. Shower good and powerful. Bed was very comfy, soft but not to bouncy.... More

People lovely who are trying their best to make the business work, Décor does needs a bit of TLC and the sea view room we had was a bit small, but everything worked and we did have stocks replenished. The breakfast surpassed its self and wasn't to be faulted at all. The location and views are probably the best in... More

Stayed 2 nights having booked via online late booking site paying £25 room only per night (standard cost £39.95). My room (34) on 3rd floor at the front was clean & tidy but furnishings/carpet/bedding dated & in need of refurb. Difficulty walking past bottom of bed as only about 8 ins away from wall! Flimsy plastic shelf above sink in... More

I stayed with my 2 children in a family room. The room was large and relatively clean and comfortable. The owners were really friendly, having just taken over they had plans to redecorate ECT. They couldn't do enough for us and I would like to go back and see how their plans work out. Good value in a lovely location.

I took my two grandchildren to this hotel and we loved it. The situation could not be better for kids--really near a fantastic beach, small play park, the castle, Peasholm Park and Sea Life and near a brilliant seafront cafe---The Oasis. OK it might be a bit knocked about after the summer season but the warm friendly welcome more than... More
