We recently went on a coach trip to the Monarch Hotel and were very pleased with everything. The hotel was clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing too much trouble for them. The 'very Yorkshire' waiter (sorry can't remember name) made everyone laugh. My granddaughter loved his way of talking and said she was 'talking Yorkshire'. There was a good choice of meals with something to suit everyone.
Quite surprised by Bridlington - a really nice place - would be nice when warmer!!
Altogether well recommended.

A comfortable modest 2-star hotel well run by a diligent and efficient manager supported by polite and helpful staff. The food is adequate but not exceptional. The eccentric old-fashioned lift which does the job is part of this hotel's charm. The hotel front rooms offer commanding views of Bridlington Bay and harbour. The central but reasonably quiet location is a bonus and amongst other advantages, offers a pleasant and safe after dinner stroll along the sea front. The only downside was that two of the most historic attractions of the town were closed for the winter which Bridlington Council should try to address.

Room Tip: Fourth and fifth floors offer good views and are away from the large dining hall on the first floor.

Came on an excursion to Brid and chose this hotel based on reviews. Good location on the seafront and easy to find. Comfortable and clean rooms and friendly service. The only downside is that breakfast could be more comprehensive, would have liked to have filter coffee rather than Nescafé.

On arrival the reception staff were very efficient and friendly and the booking in process was fast and painless. If you remember that this is a 2 star hotel and very reasonably priced it is very hard to fault. Yes the decor is a bit 1980's and the lift out of the ark but overall it is clean and comfortable. The breakfast provided a good selection and was of good quality with friendly service. The location of the hotel is one of the biggest assets being very near the Bridlington Spa and only a 5 minute walk from the centre. The only negative point was being accused of smoking in my room - which I certainly had not and would never done. The manager tried to tell me that the maids had Co2 monitors and that the readings in my room were higher than normal! I don't mind anyone making a mistake but then being fed bull by the manager did not lessen the unpleasantness of this experience. Only this incident marred my stay and overall it was adequate.
