“Special Occasion”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We decided to spend a few days in Scarborough and Whitby for our first wedding anniversary. Having never stayed in Scarborough, the reviews of this Hotel made the accommodation choice so much easier. After a 3 night stay, we cannot believe this Hotel is only a 2 Star rating, as we could not have chosen a better place. Warm and friendly service, lovely selection of food (especially at breakfast!), nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Our room was slightly basic and had not been refurbished, however the comfortable bed and the sea view certainly made up for it. The fact that our room (12) was also situated next to the lift did not affect our stay. We were able to park on the road outside the Hotel (free with ticket from hotel reception) and it was just a 20 minute walk into town to enjoy the many shops, cafes, restaurants and amusement arcades. Thanks to Hugh and staff for a warm and wonderful stay. We hope to return again soon and will definitely be recommending this hidden gem to family and friends.

We had an Autumn Break here during school October holidays. Perhaps not the most ideal hotel for active children, as most of the other residents were elderly.
The rooms were very clean & comfortable with en-suites. The Staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
For Meat Eaters, the food was excellent, with lots of choices for Breakfast and the 3 Course Dinner.
However, the "choice" for Vegetarians was restricted to only ONE dish from the Dinner Main Course and NO vegetarian bacon or sausage etc at breakfast! We feel that is not really a "choice" at all, since everyone is paying the same rate to have meals provided.
One of the dishes was not particularly enjoyable - mainly Lentils & Vegs in a rather sour tomato sauce. Being the only Veggie dish on offer, it had to be forced down or have nothing to eat that evening!. Perhaps the chef could bear in mind that even 'non-vegetarians' do like a choice of vegetarian dishes too and extend his menu to include a true "choice" for everyone.
Despite this disappointment, we did enjoy the break and would certainly recommend the Weston to others - unless they are Vegetarians of course!

Dear GoldenGran many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the wider TripAdvisor community and we thank you for your praise. As a 2 star hotel and given the feedback from other reviewers we are proud of our food offering for all dietary and personal preference requirements; however we do respect and value the estimation of all our guests. We have been reluctant to considered sourcing vegetarian sausage or bacon products and are likely to continue to do so in the future. Our full service breakfast menu does carry an excellent choice and our daily freshly prepared vegetarian dish is popular with vegetarian and non vegetarian diners alike. Once again thank you for your feedback and commendation.
Kind Regards

I recently booked a 5 night break at the Weston hotel for my husband & myself. the hotel came highly recommended, & we were not disappointed. the rooms were spacious & clean, with a wonderful view over the bay & beyond. The food was absolutely amazing & very well presented. Staff were extremely professional & nothing was too much for them. Having had the shock of our lives when unexpectedly, family had secretly booked into this hotel giving us a most wonderful surprise, we together enjoyed this break like no other. Thank you Hugh & all at the Weston Hotel for making our stay so perfect. you deserve an extra 2 stars for the food quality alone.
from a very happy couple,
Linda & David Smith

Room Tip: front sea view rooms are the best, but all the rooms we saw were good

We so much enjoyed our second visit since August to THE BEST HOTEL IN SCARBOROUGH. Everything is ideal in the Weston which is why we have been there 5 times altogether now despite the long journey we have to reach Scarborough. The food is truly excellent - the staff are so pleasant and helpful - the hotel's position is ideal with terrific views - it's convenient for the town centre - there is no problem with parking in this part of Scarborough despite being in the most popular area of the town - and it is right beside the seafront either at the top of the cliff or at sea level using the lift. We have had four different rooms now and we are well pleased with all of them. The views from all of the front rooms are spectacular. The hotel is extremely pleasant all round inside and outside. Oh, and we can't forget that ''gem'' of the hotel, especially in the dining room - the very efficient, very helpful, very pleasant, very popular Hugh. However all of the management and staff are very good indeed. They go out of their way in all respects to make your holiday enjoyable.
All in all, Scarborough and the Weston Hotel make a great combination for a lovely holiday either for a fortnight or a few days. Don't just take my word for it - look at the huge number of "excellent" reviews on 'Tripadvisor' about the Weston. They also have so many repeat visitors too. One last advantage is that the Weston is within the town itself and on the esplanade (with its great views) and not at the back of the town like some hotels.

What a lovely suprise as soon as you walk into the weston you get a friendly welcome. we had a seaview room and what a lovely view. The food was totally amazing 3 course of food you would be pushed to get at a 4 star hotel. All the staff work so hard will definately be returning . The cliff lift is opposite to get onto the seafront we opted for walking the long way it was very enjoyable lovely town to walk around . Cant wait to return

We have just had our second break this year to the Weston hotel & once again we were treated amazingly, as my Husband is disabled & we have been places where he is frowned upon the Wonderful family owners & their lovely staff were fab to us especially Gavin my other half.Even the lovely chefs John & Nigel helped me get through the hotel as my steering of a wheelchair is a lot to be desired lol sorry if there are any paint chips :) So needless to say we are already booked for next March & we can't wait thank you again for making our holiday memorable :) :)

Room Tip: The seaview rooms are amazing :)

We had a group booking of 17 for a long weeekend. All the rooms were seaviews and what fantastic views over the bay. The majority of our group were senior citizens so having the cliff lift almost opposite the hotel came in very handy.
The hotel is going through a programme of upgrading. All our rooms were of a decent size and the bathrooms were modern. There is a lift to all floors.
We only paid 42.00 per person per night for B&B and evening meal. To be honest we weren't expecting too much of the dinner for the price. What a lovely surprise all the meals were excellent or 'spot-on' was the most use comment. Plenty of choice for each of the three courses. Food well presented and the staff can only be described as marvellous. Despite being very busy they always offered a very high standard of service with a smile and always willing to share a joke.
Breakfast as above. Plenty of choice.
The hotel is on the Esplanade above the Spa and is a few minutes walk into town.
There is a large bar area with a well stocked bar and a separate lounge area both taking advantage of the magnificent views.
The hotel is offering a number of offers including Christmas and early spring. If you are planning a break to Scarborough then check out the Weston. No problems recommending a good hotel with cracking staff.
