This truly is a hidden gem on the East coast. The staff are first class, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the bed was superb. There is a program of renovation and this is all to tip top standards. If you like a touch of luxury, then this is the hotel. Great location, just a short walk into the... More

Overall would have been 4.5 if available. Double room could have been bigger and banging doors on both 2nd and 3rd floors. Otherwise everything else was super. No problem with parking as were offered an off road space on arrival and parked directly outside on other occasions. Staff always friendly and helpful.

We stayed for three nights in the Directors Box (self catering apartment). Absolutely beautiful views down the promenade and the sea, very spacious, comfortable bed but very dated and could do with a deep clean and in the sun room all the windows need replacing and the door onto the balcony needs attention as we found it awkward to open...

That this hotel is highly rated is evidenced by the fact it was almost fully booked about a week before we went. As previous reviewers have said - it is indeed a perfect location, right on the seafront and thankfully mid-way between a gloriously lovely Sewerby and the hustle and bustle of Bridlington itself. We stayed in one of the... More

Disabled friendly .... I think not!!!! Has a lift but wouldn't take a wheelchair (I think that defeats the object).main entrance had quite a few steps and a revolving door .The disabled door was round the side and you had to go through various rooms to get to reception. Parking on site was non existent. Luckily I had a blue... More

Expanse, Owner at Expanse Hotel, responded to this review

We have never described this hotel as disabled friendly. I do not know where you got that idea from. We are sorry that this caused you distress, you were offered a full refund which you declined. Your statement that there is no on site parking is false, it is limited, 12 free spaces, 4 charged garage spaces + lots of... More
