I have been taken /visiting this Yorkshire gem since i was a baby, and my family has been going there for 20 years before i was even born. I am not sure what initially drew them to the hotel back in the 60's but i dare say it is largely down to the charisma and charm of the staff, building and especially Miss McCarther, or Helen to those who know her!!! The hotel is not your most modern, or your most swanky but it just has a certain je ne sais quoi that hits you on arrival.
Typically you will be met by one of the biggest dogs to ever roam the earth but do not fret, she will never do anything other than show effection. All of the rooms are sapcious but clearly in a place like Scarborough you want to be facing out over the bridge and South Bay.
Once you are settled into your room definately head down to the bar for a drink and there is a good chance Helen will serve you herself! I think that all other reviewers of this hotel will tell you that the Mount's Party Piece is the food. After going there every year up until my early 20's i can honestly say that they dont do bad food. In fact they dont do good food. They only do AMAZING food! Breakfast, lunch or dinner you will never be disappointed!
I know there are newer, hipper hotels but overall, nothing will beat this gem!
