This is a first for me I think, reviewing somewhere half way through the stay! I questioned myself as to whether it's fair to do that and decided that it probably isn't, however from the other side, it's also not fair that I am being charged to stay in somewhere as bad as this. The stench in reception area (over... More

Stayed twice here before in the Lexx rooms but this time unavailable. However was put in room 120 which is one of their new refurbished rooms and it was excellent, with a very large comfy bed and great Sea views. The food was good as were the staff. Will definitely return again in the near future.

We used the hotel as a base to walk a couple of sections of the Cleveland Way. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bar area has lovely views of the sea and was a pleasant place to chat and enjoy a pint. There are a number of pubs just behind the hotel within easy walking distance. The North Riding brew...

With 85rooms and hardly any parking the first shock/worry was where to park car and not getting a ticket after paying £3 a day and no spaces in the right Zone area on the street around hotel. We took the lift which was very old and slow with a heavy metal slide door and fire door at each level. Our... More

The building is very old but is kept reasonably well. On arrival the staff were very friendly and check in was quickly dealt with. Our first room was a family room with views of... More

Stayed here with girlfriend as we was attending a concert nearby. Our room was room 393, right at the very top, the view was lovely, the room was spacious and very clean. So the room was clean, staff were lovely, and a wide variety of things for breakfast which was also good. Would recommend.
