“Will return to the hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

I had a comfy room with seaside view. Choose this hotel if you want to have a stylish North Yorkshire one with good food and friendly personnel. The hotel is excellently located and all the shops and services of Scarborough are just within walking distance. Full English breakfast and the dinner were always delicious. The atmosphere in the restaurant was nicely relaxed and the restaurant personnel was really service-oriented. I will return to this hotel in the near future.

We stayed just the one night in this hotel but was enough for us to return again in the summer, everything in the hotel made you feel so relaxed, we had a room with a sea view that was superb as you could see down the coast and the room was very comfy. We ate out that night at a local restaurant and decided to have a drink in the hotel bar before going up to our room, my wife ordered a coffee and was sat drinking it when one of the waiters walked passed who said hello and went on, a couple of minutes later he came back with a plate of biscuits for my wife to enjoy with her coffee wich was a very thoughtful gesture, i think his name was Antonio and he served us again at breakfeast which was one of best breakfasts we have had and the dining rom was very clean and bright with great views. Parking can be a bit of a problem if you arrive late on in the day but i parked in the car park next to the palm court hotel round the corner and was secure parking that cost a tenner for 24hrs which i know sounds a lot but was very handy.

Room Tip: Book a room with a sea view its well worth the extra.

I was pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us particularly the fantastic sea and cliff views looking towards Filey.
Like all the staff working at the hotel Antonio enjoys his work and interacting with people, also being fluent in many of Europe's main languages, he can use his friendly manor in many tongues. We are proud to have been awarded The Breakfast Award from Visit England for the high quality of our breakfasts.

We stayed for just one night as we were seeing Gary Barlow who was playing in Scarborough. They even allowed us to take our small dog for no extra charge and made us and him very welcome. Real personal touch by even remembering the dogs name. Breakfast was included in the price and was truly excellent. We had a really good waitress all food was served to you from the breakfast menu, no horrible self service buffet and the table was set out beautifully. A little gem shame we only had one night.

I am pleased that you and your dog enjoyed your stay with us, from your comments I am not sure if you preferred Gary Barlow or our breakfasts!! .
All our breakfasts are freshly cooked using products from our local suppliers including prime pork sausages, award winning black pudding, free range farm eggs, locally smoked kippers and haddock (and no extra supplement charges)!!
Look out for some more big names in the music world appearing at Scarborough's Open Air Theatre this summer.

We have been coming to Scarborough twice a year, out of season, for over 15 years. Our more recent stays have been at the Crown Spa but as the weather forecast was not good we looked for a more central location. We have just returned home after a two night stay at the Mount and our only regret is that we did not know about this hotel years ago.The Mount overlooks the South Bay in a quiet location whilst being near to the town centre. We had a beautiful seaview room which was spotlessly clean with a seperate lounge area. The breakfasts by Shaun, were to die for. The food in the restaurant was top quality produce cooked to perfection and beautifully served. All of the staff were welcoming,friendly and nothing was too much trouble. It was a pleasure to meet people who took such pride in their work. Despite the snow, we had an 'EXCELLENT' stay and it certainly wont be our last . We will be back!

Room Tip: Book a room with a seaview .

I will ensure that all the staff involved in making your stay so enjoyable get to read the kind words you have written.
Though we are a 50 bedroomed hotel commanding a fantastic location overlooking the Spa Bridge , Rotunda Museum and Scarborough's South Bay there are a lot of people out there who are still to discover us!!!

Just spent 3 days at the Mount Hotel.. Just one word sums up my stay, EXCELLENT !!!!.
A lovely seaview room (could see down the coast for 20 miles) which was spacious and very comfortable and had a modern spotlessly clean bathroom. On top of this I had dinner 2 nights in the restaurant which was also top quality at a sensible price. This hotel is a credit to the friendly management team and its staff. I will look forward to returning.

Room Tip: 3rd floor double seaview is a delight.

Fabulous location and ideally situated for shops and the beautiful shore. We had our dog with us and there are great walks close by. The hotel is very welcoming and the staff were excellent. From the excellent service and beautiful food we received in the dining room to the friendly and helpful housekeeping staff we could not fault anything and would recommend this hotel to anyone. We have visited Scarborough many times before and we are so pleased that we have found this gem. We will be back . Thank you.

This was our first time at the Mount but it won't be our last. The Hotel is well placed, convenient for all that Scarborough has to offer. The sea view is a real sea (not a glimpse on the horizon) and we even had a superb view from the bathroom. The best thing about this hotel is the way it is run - there is a real team spirit and the staff clearly are very proud of the hotel and work together to maintain a high standard. There is an old fashioned, or should I say traditional, approach that you quickly realise is a rarity these days - a gentility that is fast disapearing from everyday life. This is what makes the Mount unusual. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Yes, the decor is old fashioned but it is preferable to the "city boutique" style that makes most hotels all look and feel impersonal. The breakfasts are fantastic and are all waitress service - and with snowy white tablecloths and silver service too! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Make sure that you ask for a sea view otherwise you will lose some of the full charm of the hotel.
