“Lovely stay again”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Ambassador for a family wedding in October and this was the fourth time we have stayed there (we have family in Scarborough.)

Our family room was lovely and spacious and bearing in mind we had two children, including a baby sharing with us, we never felt cramped.

We ordered room service on our first night at the hotel and the meal when it came was very tasty, although my Caesar salad could have stood to have a bit less dressing on it.

Breakfast at the hotel the next morning was delicious and the self service format meant that it didn't matter so much if our daughter wanted to eat her breakfast in an unusual order!! :-)

We were lucky in that weather was lovely and clear whilst we were there and the views down onto the bay from the restaurant were just stunning. We didn't use the spa facilities on this occasion, but have during our previous stays and have found the spa, whilst small, is pleasant and treatments are good.

Another great stay at the Ambassador.

Stayed October 2013

Booked an executive room. What a shock. View was lots of windows. One of our room windows was frosted glass so couldn't see anything from that window. Very small room with a very badly cracked ceiling. Steps down to an area with a two seater settee in and a small television on a wall. Bathroom , Cracked wall mirror(not a small crack either) handle on bath held in place with blue tack.Shower curtain held up with black tape. We had booked in the spa for a mud treatment, this was great and the staff were lovely. Infact, the Spa was a lovely .experience.
We had an evening meal in the Hotel ,which was adequate, but was spoilt by the sweet course, my cheese cake was a soggy mess. The Breakfast was excellent.
On leaving I asked if we had been in an executive room and was told we had, apparently because it had a "snug area" (the settee bit) then it was classed as executive!!!!!!!!! All communal areas kept very clean. Staff very attentive and happy.

Room Tip: Ask where your room will be . 212 not a good room. View is terrible. lots of talk on internet site o...

We have had some real difficulties in recent years trying to find decent accommodation in Scarborough but have now solved the problem!
The hotel is comfortable, roadside parking is available and staff are welcoming. It's good value for money with a substantial breakfast for guests.
We did not use the spa facilities but will use the hotel again.

Just a quick one night break, but overall very impressed. Lovely clean, comfortable room, with super views over the town and bay. Very friendly helpful staff and a very enjoyable breakfast in the morning with lots of choice. The hotel is conveniently situated on Scarborough's south cliff and is within easy walking distance of the town and beach. I would certainly stay again and would recommend .

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel have beautiful views of the sea and town.

Lovely afternoon staff very attentive and the spa treatment was a "treat". Afternoon tea was delicious and served by friendly helpful staff. All in all a lovely visit with excellent sea views watching boats sailing on the sea and a bright pleasant November day

Stayed here with a friend after booking a mud rasul treatment via Groupon. The images used on groupon were quite misleading and made the pool area look a lot larger than it actually is. The hot tub is built into the pool and is impossible to sit down in (I'm average height and the water level covered my mouth), the jets also pushed me away from the side. Pool area isn't relaxing as passersby gawp through the windows.

The reception staff offered a generous discount on our bar tab after not receiving part of our offer nor fixing the television.
