“Good hotel for a short break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We recently booked a three day break through Groupon at the Victoria hotel in Scarborough. We had a lovely room with a king size bed. It was spotlessly clean and the bathroom had a window which is unusual in hotels. There were tea/coffee and biscuits provided and re-filled each day. Breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked with as much toast and coffee as we wanted. Staff were friendly and obliging. The lift is a bit slow and only takes two people at a time but this was not a problem as the hotel was a bit quiet until the weekend. The location is great, right opposite the station. The pub is a bit shabby and in need of a refit. we paid £89 for two people B/B for the three days which is very good value. Would certainly recommend.

Fancied an extra night in Scarborough, went online at 12.00 in Scarborough library, had the keys and back out enjoying ourselves by 13.00. Booked a double room for my wife and myself, got the family room which was excellent.
We normally stay at the Grand, and were a bit wary having read some negative reviews. However we got a clean tidy room, the staff were brilliant, and having breakfast cooked freshly for you and brought to your table was a nice change for us. If you want to find faults you can, If you want a comfortable clean room as a base to enjoy Scarborough and the surrounding area at an excellent price, please use the "Vic" you won't be disappointed.
Thank You for a lovely end to our time in Scarborough, we will be back.

Room Tip: You are booking BED and BREAKFAST, if you want more, pay £200 for a nice suite at one of the bigger...

I stayed here for a week during a working holiday, the hotel is a standard B&B, plain rooms & bathroom. I couldn't have anything to fault.
The service from the bar staff was lovely, the car park wasn't a proper car park but it was off road and suitable to park a car, the lift was a bit knakered & the rooms were a tad dated. But I didn't mind this, it was a place to sleep and get washed. I managed :)

I didn't find it that noisey, it was more the seagulls that I could hear. One night the hotel had a party and music was playing but that went off at 11.

If I was looking for a week or weekend away, I would definitely consider this place again, very central to everything.

room was clean and buts thats the only positive thing i can say about the whole weekend. noisy does not come close. the bar, the street, the creaking floor boards, the paper thin walls the telly that did not work all i can say is do not stay here, after paying £75 for a double room with breakfast expected something better than this absolute garbage.

Group of lads booked on over the bank holiday weekend in early May.
The rooms which are above a pub were in good condition and the beds comfy.
Breakfast was spot on, and staff were friendly.
One thing to note if you are a group there is a deposit of £10 pp which is fair enough but i wasn't told that on the phone when i booked. Also there is a side door to get in on a night and it is a bit dodgy, luckily we got in ok but if you have to wake up the resisdent night porter to get in then you would lose your deposit.

Overall though it was a good place to stay i would recommend this hotel but more for groups rather than families.

Wouldn't stay here again! Far too noisy inside and out. Didn't sleep at all, due to the fact there was two functions going on til midnight, d.j in the bar area then a 40th birthday party, one was below our room, then people hanging about outside til well gone 4am. Would be ideal for a lads weekend! Plus we had no hot water in the morning (we assumed because everyone was using at the same time) who knows. Like a lot of these so called B andB's they could all do with modernising.The lift here was out of service too. We also had problems parking. We couldn't wait to get out so can't comment on the breakfast. Poor show.

The greeting very friendly, the rooms were lovely and clean. Everything about our stay means that if we want a weekend break we would definately come again. It is only a shame that we did not have more time off.
