Went to this Hotel on a coach tour break. We were given a room overlooking the Church and the sea beyond. Room was clean and quiet, beds were comfy.The Restaurant however dealt only with speedy eaters, it was manic,the service staff had to give us 3 courses in under an hour, it was crazy. It showed in the meals which... More

I went to the Norbreck last weekend as I had tickets for Simply Red concert on Friday night. As I had to leave before dinner to attend I requested a packed lunch instead. I arrived late afternoon checked in and had my "lunch bag". We had a fire alarm at 5pm and had to evacuate the hotel as kids had... More

Just spent a long weekend here, very reasonably priced, very friendly staff, food is OK, breakfast is very good. Rooms were comfortable if a little on the small side. Be aware the hotel is on the top of the cliffs near the castle, this gives excellent views on to both bays, but does mean quite steep climbs up to the... More

Hi I think Shearings breaks are very good value but recently I had a couple of problems when staying here.

The hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly. Every where was clean, but the bed décor needed updating, as did the bathroom. Wi-fi was available in the lounge area, but not very good in bedroom.The food was adequate, but not overly interesting. It has wonderful views, and is ideally situated for both north and South Bays.

Hi Ann and thank you for your feedback. The hotel does have a program of refurbishment and we are happy to say more rooms will be completed this year. At present our Wi-Fi is only set up for access in the public areas, however we are looking into extending this to all rooms. I hope to see you again. More

The hotel is in a great situation, very near the castle and near the shops and beaches (although it is steep hills all the way back). Scarborough is an ideal base for visiting lots of interesting places around and about. The hotel is very clean and well decorated and the staff are friendly and helpful. My single room was a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Standing on the headland, near Scarborough's ancient castle ruins, the Norbreck is the only hotel in town which looks out over both the North and South Bays, with breathtaking panoramic sea view. From this peaceful location you can rest in the convivial atmosphere of the bar lounge or in the comfort of the restaurant and savour the scenic sights of golden sands and ocean waters. In the hub of the town itself, lying just ten minutes' away, there is an array of shops and holiday attractions. While a day trip takes you to York or to see the moors, to test your nerves at Flamingo Land or to revisit 'Brideshead' at Castle Howard. There's such a lot to see and do in the area! The hotel does not have a car park. However street parking is available nearby. ... more   less
