We booked in last minute at the Red Lea after deciding to go to Scarborough for the weekend. When we arrived we were quoted £130 for a sea view room. However, once we went back the receptionist had found us a £100 room (knowing we perhaps wouldn't be in a lot to take full advantage of the view) She then... More

Parking outside hotel on the street. Parking permit issued free of charge on arrival. A very warm welcome at the reception, a guided tour of the ground floor lounge, dining room bar, toilets and way to swimming pool very dated hotel with lots of charm! A dour room was spacious spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable, a huge bed dressing table... More

At £130 a night I think the hotel was over priced. The room was spacious,clean and had a great veiw but the shower was very poor and we had no wifi in our room only in the bar. We were woken one morning at 8.30 to clean the room which was ridiculous. Nice breakfast shame finished at 9.30 ,and had... More

In many ways the Red Lea is a classical seaside hotel but is also very well managed. On arrival they give you a parking permit to let you park your car on the street, and there were lots of spaces close by when we were there, so that was easy. The room worked really well, it was light and airy... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for a night as part of a family weekend. The hotel is in a good location, in the quieter north bay of Scarborough. Street parking is available outside the hotel. The steep incline from the beach to the hotel could be difficult for older guests to walk. However, a tram to the... More
