“weekend in scarborough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a great time at The Mount Hotel last weekend. Staff were so friendly and nothing was a bother. A special thank you to owners Douglas and Helen, the Manager Craig and not forgetting our waiter Antonio who was always on hand to make our stay so special. Food was first class and served with silver service. Bedrooms were spacious with a giant marshmallow bed. We were in a party of 38 and not one person could find fault. We would recommend this hotel to anyone. We are going back next year.

A special birthday weekend with friends was complemented with the fantastic ambiance of this three star hotel (but well worth a higher rating). The cleanliness of the hotel, the silver service with a smile for all our meals, high standard food, and location of the hotel, made it a trip to remember on all fronts.
Looking at the offerings of other hotels in the area, and restaurant standards, the Mount Hotel is high up on the agenda. The hotel also attracts visitors to the restaurant and rightly so - the service is impeccable and the menu is definitely imaginative. If you plan to stay, make sure you book in for dinner, bed and breakfast. Don't waste your time looking anywhere else. It's all here!

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Choose a room with views of the sea - they are brighter and more welcoming than the rooms at the bac...

Spent the Easter weekend here with our two small dogs. Great quiet and central location and great silver service treatment in the dining room. Really really impressed with dinner and overall service
Staff were wonderful with our two dogs and very accommodating. Hotel looks very grand and the feel inside reflects the old world charm.
Only downside was that we were given a room at the back of the building with no view which really disappointed me as we travelled so far just for the ocean. Room was a little tired but very clean otherwise. Our room lacked the old world charm of the rest of the hotel but comfortable.
Will return again next time we are in Scarborough even if just for the dinner service!

So pleased that you enjoyed the comforts of The Mount Hotel and especially the food and service at dinner. We have 50 bedrooms, 25 offering fantastic sea views I am sorry that you did not enjoy a sea view on this occasion, if you plan to return then please speak to one of our reception team so that we can find you a room with a view.

I have stayed in 5 star hotels worldwide this year and I would chose this hotel over any of them , I had forgotten the simple pleasures of silver service , startched napkins , personal attentive service and home cooking with local produce and the quality of individually cooked breakfasts as oppossed to buffet scrums . I took my mother for her 80 th birthday with my young children for a two night break . The hotels warmth was a contrast to the freezing Scarborough weather , their are plesant lounges with nice seating where we could play board games , the bedrooms are clean and comfortable.there are no coach parties . I had forgotten such hotels still exist ! I do not believe there can be a better hotel for famalies visting Scarborough it is old school attentiveness that is nowsadly exceptionally rare !

Room was nice & the view stupendous--it IS worth the money, even the rather penny-pinching OH agreed. I loved the friendly feel of the whole place, not overly stuffy or posh, but lovely and comfortable, which is just what we like. The staff were amazing--warm and friendly without being "in your face". The breakfast was delicious, especially the eggs, and for us, best of all, they made our two dogs really welcome. Toiletries in bath were good quality, as were towels and sheets. Bed was quite soft, I should have asked for the bed board, which they offer in the room's hotel guide book. There was a nice park right next door, and you are right by the beach/town centre.
Cons: this is not the last word in elegance -- if you want really posh, you might be disappointed, it is a tiny bit tired (NOT dirty or worn out, though).

Room Tip: Sea view. Also, if you like a firm mattress, ask for a bed-board.

Stayed one night at the Mount; it was freezing cold and snowing but the hotel was warm and the staff were friendly. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the furniture and decor were smart and well kept. We had a sea front room, number 19, with a good view of the sea, through the frequent snow flurries. As it was so cold, we decided to have an evening meal in the hotel and it was a very good meal, well cooked and presented. The head waiter Antonio was very attentive and the price charged was well worth it. The bedroom was
