This hotel has a *** rating. The room and linen were spotlessly clean and we were fortunate to have a sea view overlooking the harbour and castle. I would not recommend this hotel for anyone who has mobility problems as it is located on the top of the South Cliff (hence the stunning views) and has a series of steps and steep slopes to encounter but a very short trip by taxi overcomes this problem. The bath/shower room was rather basic but quite acceptable. The dining room was spacious and overlooking the South Bay. The food was not gourmet style but more like home cooking. The staff were always cheerful and ever willing to help in whatever way they could. There was entertainment on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights from 8pm. Another feature of the hotel was the large veranda/balcony which overlooked the South Bay and was ideal for having drinks watching the sun set. The hotel is located on a quiet road so does not have a problem with noise pollution. I have been to several of the more popular larger hotels in Scarborough and overall have definitely found this to be one of the best.
