Spent a two night weekend here in August 2007and enjoyed it very much.
We had one of the cheapest rooms but it was of a good size, very comfortable and tastefully furnished to a high standard with a flat screen TV and DVD in the room. Being a back room , we had no view, but the view from the front rooms (and the lounge) was enviable. The bathroom was small but very nicely appointed. Shared areas of the hotel are very nicely appointed.
The hotel is on the main clifftop walk with a vew across to a park and, behind that , the sea.
The walk into town was very pleasant - along an elevated promenade and then down a slope or steps onto a pedestrian bridge into the heart of town - although some less mobile folk might prefer the alternative cliff railway (within a couple of hundred yards of the hotel which leads right down to beach promenade level (70p a go or £7 for the week). About 15 minutes to the beach or town centre.
Scarborough itself is a true gem - a mix of superb beach, classic English seaside tat (if you want to seek it out), truly beautiful classic Regency and Victorian architecture (around the area where the hotel is) and a modern fully appointed shopping centre - all very separate but all within easy walking distance of one another.
Didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast, which was served by a trio of slightly disorganised, but very friendly staff and was was tasty and enjoyable without being exciting.
Would heartily recommend the Mansion House as a base for exploring all the aspects of Scarborough, and would also heartily endorse Scarborough as both a place to stay and a base to explore from.
