Just returned from a two night/three day stay in brid at the Mon Fort. Bit jubious at first with some people's comments but this amounted to nothing. The hotel was just as advertised. Set right in the heart of brid, close to everything, lovely sea view rooms, lovely breakfasts and parking (albeit there is no car park but in the centre of town this is to be expected) we managed to park our two cars no problem for the weekend and were given parking permits so no need to worry about tickets.
We took our parents for their 25th wedding anniversary and they loved it also. The rooms aren't "old fashioned" but traditional, with dark wood furniture and the floral patterns. Me and my husband are in our 20s and found the rooms charming and comfortable as well as very clean, it wouldn't have been the same if they were modern it would take the charm of the hotel away. There is tea and coffee making facilities and also a TV.
The bar attached is nice, again a very traditional style bar/pub with good enterainment on and nice clientelle enjoying a quiet drink and the enterainment, so no rif raf!
We had a great time out in the town, there is a sea cruise up to Flamborough head for just £4.50 each, it's an hours journey altogether + with the added bonus of a bar on the boat! We had a meal at Rags Restaurant on the harbour, the food was to die for and the service very good - recomend going here. We also went to the Spa Theatre which was a fab evening - so it is worth checking out their website to see it there is anything on and booking tickets before you go.
We are planning coming back to bridlington twice next year and are sorting out our dates to come back and stay at the Mon Fort on both occasions. It's definately recommended.
