“Pleasant introduction visit to Scarborough.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

A midweek tour with Urquharts took us to the Boston Hotel, a splendid 30 bedroomed hotel. with excellent views overlooking the North Bay. Whilst our bedroom on the top (3rd) floor faced inland , it was comfotable and adequate for four days.. However, plumbing noise from adjoining bedrooms during the night was slightly disturbing. The kitchen staff worked hard to provide high class meals, which were served promptly by the waiters/waitresses. Having to provide over fifty meals in one sitting is no mean feat! Light entertainment (music or bingo) was provided on three evenings. Everyone connected with the hiotel was very friendly and we were made to feel most welcome.

Great views over the North Bay. Easy walk to South Bay and harbour, Peasholm Park and narrow gauge railway whose terminus is within a stones throw of Sea Life Centre. Room clean and comfortable with great sea view. All staff very friendly and helpful. Coped with our vegetarian requests without fuss or bother although we were part of a large coach pary. Large helpings of good home cooking . Breakfast was at 0830, not buffet but served to you. My wife and I would personally have preferred an earlier breakfast ( especially as it was 0800 on the last day of our holiday) . A good old fashioned, in the nicest possible way, family run Hotel which we would be happy to return to or recommend to friends

We spent 4 nights at the Boston with a group on a coach holiday. The view is magnificent from sea-view rooms. The food was excellent, with a limited choice - all hot food is piping hot, which is very rare nowadays. The dining room staff are very pleasant and attentive. Service is prompt and smooth running. We were in a small room on the third floor, accessible by lift -as are all rooms.. The only drawback was the small size of the bathroom, which can only be described as "cramped". However for a few days this is manageable. The lounge and bar area are comfortable with a large TV in the lounge and good seating in the bar. We would certainly return to this hotel for a few days in Scarborough.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view with bay window - it is one of the best views in Yorkshire

At this hotel with family,17th December 2010, traveled with David Urquhart. Hotel is right on top of cliffs, clean, good room, and the other two rooms that the family had were great with the best sea view ever.As it was a turkey and tinsel we had a Christmas dinner,this with five other course's. The meal was great, and served promtly, and was hot. The entertainment was, ok one night ,and good on the second night. Over all the hotel was just great, and I am certainly going again. Book early as I think this one will fill up quickly.
I think prices are about £29-00 BB, and £40-00 half board, that is going private, give it a try.
