We stayed in the Churchhill suite which although old fashioned ( like churchhill) , it had a modern bathroom and bedroom (ish).
The veiw from the suite makes all worthwhile and is sooooooo calming . Staff great and bring anything with a smile.
Food and service good and central to town and a short trip to beach. I enjoyed the FREE use of the pool without all the nonesense of Spa type prices.
VEIW- POOL- LOCATION...................great!
This hotel is very poor, dated and unclean. Service was slow and drinks expensive. £9.50 for a large glass of wine and a pint of Stella. The Royal is in a perfect for position for Scarbrough's attractions, although in March there is not many. We stayed for 2 nights bed and breakfast with dinner on the first night which was very nice as was the breakfast.
On the second night we ate at the Scarbrough Tandori which was not to our taste. The service was very good and it was very busy. The pubs we visited where all very busy with Karaoke on in a lot of them. The clubs opposite the Royal are very busy late on, large amounts of people queuing to get in to the clubs and a large police presence.
As a child we holidayed in Scarbrough and I have many happy memories. This is not Scarbrough we have seen this weekend which is such a shame.
We booked a "superior room" on a special deal through English Rose Hotels website. £154 for two nights B&B was good value for money. Comfortable room with king size bed, equipped to modern standards (including flat screen TV) and with lovely views over the South Bay. Excellent buffet breakfast.
Arrived at 1:30 pm having paid £10 for an early check in (from 12 noon). The somewhat aloof receptionist had no record of our booking, she finally located it but room was not ready until 2:30. We were offered a complimentary pot of tea whilst waiting but I would have preferred a more sincere apology.
Twice during our stay (the first time at 11pm on a Sunday evening) on returning to our room all fuses had blown and we had no electricity. On both occasions a member of staff fixed the problem within 5 minutes but frustrating all the same.
We are regular visitors to Scarborough and we shall almost certainly stay at the Royal again. The hotel is in a most convenient central location and as above, it is comfortable and good value for money
poor,slow lift,rooms too hot,out dated,poor quality,not as clean as expected for a 3 star,sheets and blankets,windows do not open,old style t.v. no digital,fan for cooling the room which was an accident waiting to happen,bedside lamps held on by a thread,shower rail bent in the middle,hot and cold dial missing from wash basin tap,vanity unit broken and had previously had a leek (not been cleaned properly as the evedence was still there),ceiling paper hanging off,cobwebs on the window,didn't ask for a sea view but didn't ask for colditz either,on the plus side breakfast was very good,thankfully went on web price £72 so didn't pay £140 normal price
Stayed 2 nights on a weekend special which included a free dinner on the first night. This was great as we only intended to book B&B but we weren't about to pass up a freee meal! Room was lovely, modern and clean. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of options. Dinner was very tasty, a 3 course choice from a set menu, some things carried a supplement but there was plenty of choice for us from the standard items. Staff were lovely, barring one or 2 who looked like they had got out of bed on the wrong side. Pool was lovely, clean and warm. Sauna small but brand new. Jacuzzi bubbles not working during our visit. Parking a bit of a pain in scarborough but we used the NCP which was only a 5 min walk away (£6.50/day). Would certainly return next time we are in scarborough.
