My wife and I stayed 14th-18th Jan and were pleasantly surprised with everthing the hotel had to offer. Room 301 afforded good views of the north bay and the extra electric radiator was welcome as the outside temperature didn't rise much above freezing during our stay. The only downsides were the lack of water pressure to the shower and the old fashioned TV set with limited channels.
The meals were standard British fare - full english breakfast, with a decent sausage!, and a good choice of cereals, fruit juice, yoghurts and toast to finish.The evening meal was four courses, typically soup, meat, a chef's special,,followed by a sweet or biscuits and cheese, then coffee.The meals, though simple, were hot and tasty and of ample portions.
We were most impressed with the high standard of entertainment every night,a good mix of quizzes,bingo,comedy,singing and a drag act!
The bar could have been a bit bigger as the chap serving the drinks was rushed off his feet,that said we didn't have to wait long to be served.
Our coach driver Geoff was brilliant and kept us entertained on our journey there and back and also our two outings,one to York and one to Whitby.
To sum up a brilliant 5 day break,especially with the free drinks vouchers (four each per day) which can be used for branded beers,spirits, soft drinks or tea and coffee .
For sheer value for money(£99) each, this holiday cannot be beaten.
- 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
