The hotel is very beautiful, a sweeping staircase greets along with the soldier dressed in a suit of amour. The feeling is very pleasant, lots of wood, a warm welcome to this hotel. Off the sweeping stair case are the rooms which if you walk out of your room, on any of the two levels, to look down to the foyer. This is a nice touch however we had a party of local cricketers having their annual party at the hotel and this was very loud as they called it a night in said foyer after mid night.
We had one of the cheaper rooms (room 5), L shaped, understated, in a good way, and with good finishing, the bathroom to a high spec and a good quality flat screen. I saw some of the other sea view rooms and they looked amazing. Definitely will book one of those as they have stunning views of the bay.
I think overall my partner and I were very happy with our stay; lovely hotel, friendly staff, incredible views but the one thing that let it down was the food. We arrived late and I had a burger in the bar, over £10 and it was not any better than a burger from McDonalds. The menu said all or most of the produced was sourced locally – if this beef was it certainly wasn’t good quality. My partner had the fish pie and there was lots of potato, not much fish and the cheese on top was half an inch thick. She left hers half way through but I persevered. I was starving. Just felt a bit cheated as they were charging high prices for very average food.
Breakfast was alright, be nice to go to a hotel where you get decent sausages but these were no better than what’s found in your local greasy spoon, the whole breakfast for that matter. We decided on these two experiences to swerve the restaurant for an evening meal deciding instead to eat out.
Overall a great place to stay, easy to walk into Robin’s Hood Bay and good access for roads to Whitby and Scarborough but if the food had been better it would’ve got top marks.
