We went to this hotel on a self drive basis. We paid the full price and also paid for an upgraded room. The view was excellent but the room was very shabby i.e. old seats burst with foam showing. Bed base burst. Bathroom door with no lock but even so would not stay closed. Tile grouting around bath black with dampness. On several occasions we had no hot water due to hotel boiler breaking down. Hygiene in restaurant could have been better i.e. dirty crockery. The standard of food was average and with small portions. Breakfast buffet not replenished unless asked to do so. Reception area not very welcoming. Plus points - entertainment good and staff friendly. Been to this hotel a number of years ago but this time found that the standard has gone down hill. Old hotel in need of upgrade.
- 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
