The hotel is in a central location overlooking the main beach. There is an area at the front of the hotel where you can unload your car and the guy on reception will then direct you to the NCP car park and you get a 50% discount as a hotel guest. The building itself and decor is in need of... More

We were not very happy as we booked to stay at the Clifton at the other end of Scarborough due to attending the Open Air Theatre. Two days before our arrival we were told Britannia had moved us but we would have an upgraded room. We queued 30 minutes at reception to be check in. Our room was a shoe... More

Nice and roomy. Great staff. Three of us in a room and only two tiny towels provided. Shower gel dispenser empty. No toiletries apart from two miniscule soaps. You have to PAY to use the pool even after paying for your stay. You also have to pay if you want to hire a towel for the pool. Bit tired and... More

For once I am lost for words,I feel very sad putting the review out there but maybe Britannia hotels will read this and actually sort out the problems or this hotel is going only one way. Where to begin! No parking,you have to drop off your luggage and fing the Ncp car park on the one way system round the... More

Curtious staff- one grumpy guy who appeared to ve management but not sure. The sign saying "work is for work" on the staff white board looked like a whip cracker was working there- made me feel a bit uncomfortable for the staff. Spa is gross- sorry guys but jeysus! The shower heads, fake white boulders and pool is tired n... More

stayed for 4 nights in the Royal Hotel Scarborough , the building was lovely but needed a lot of touch up in places and new management. Need more hand rails in bathrooms plus walk-in showers for the elderly or disabled people as they could struggle with the bath , wallpaper coming away in places in the corridors and paint flaking...

After 3 awful days incarcerated in the not so "Grand Hotel" it was with some feeling of trepidation that we checked in to the Royal Hotel for my wife's birthday break,these feelings soon dispersed as we checked in effortlessly, our room was not quite ready so we took a seat in the lounge bar and within 20 minutes we were...

Went for a night with our grandson before we headed off for a week in a caravan. First impressions were bad, no car park. You have to go to a NCP car park, which is about a 5-10 minute walk away from the hotel. Not good if you've got lots of cases or young children in tow. The car park... More

What can I say, other than I would not visit this place if it were the last hotel on the planet. The staff were unhelpful, including the manager, who clearly hadn't looked at any of the rooms and had in my opinion never eaton at a decent restaurant in her life. The food was not of good quality, and basic... More
