We stayed overnight at the Monarch and was greeted in a very friendly manner by the manager. The room was spacious and very clean, with a superb sea view.
Location was excellent right opposite the Spa, and close to the harbour.

Breakfast was served by very helpful and friendly staff, nothing too much trouble and plenty to eat!
Will definitely stay here again. well done to all concerned.

Had a great time celebrating a friends birthday. We arrived on a very stormy night Richard on reception was very friendly. Our room was clean and beds comfortable and the food was good. The best point for me was how helpful and friendly the staff were they make the hotel what it is what lovely people. We were with a great group of friends and laughed all weekend. Downside for me was the entertainment.

Room Tip: 2nd floor with sea view and balcony and 5th floor rm41 was nice and comfy.

Our coach party was at the Monarch for 4 days over the New Year. The manager and all staff were great, nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was a good range of choice served quickly and always hot and plentiful. Right opposite the beach and theatre, and within easy walk of the shops. Rooms were comfy and warm, with an extra heater in the wardrobe if it was needed. also an iron. Overall a pleasant stay.

We stayed as part of a Grand U.K Holiday at the Monarch. From the minute we arrived and were met by the brilliant Corie and the Manager Steve our holiday began. We did not stop laughing from the start of our holiday ,the warmth and helpfulness of all the lovely staff was "top notch" and could not be faulted. Rooms warm and clean and the superb ,beautiful view from our fourth floor room will be remembered for ever.Watching the sun rise over the sea was truly wonderful.In the dining room Mark was our star. All the waiting staff were very good but Mark was unique,certainly not to be beaten ,nothing was too much trouble and we laughed so much at his "strange language" ,every lovely mealtime was a joy. Corie our Tour Manager is a remarkable lady ,so caring, thoughtful , and a champion comedian and our tours around Yorkshire were a joy .Corie's love of Yorkshire is unsurpassed and she should be a ambassador for the Tour de France when it comes to Yorkshire next year. The entertainment by Corie as Shirley Bassey and Andy Pandy also Elvis was remarkable. We would love to return to the Hotel and please dont change from the best Hotel ever,thank you.

Room Tip: Sea views from higher floors ,wonderful.

I have just returned from my third visit to the Monarch Hotel in Bridlington. I was there with a local Charity Group from Skegness on a 'Turkey & Tinsel' Break.

I have reviewed this wonderful Hotel twice before, so I am going to try not to repeat much of what I have already said as you can read my previous two reports for yourself.

In this report, I want to concentrate on the excellent service and the staff at the Monarch.

I'm going to begin by mentioning a new member of staff who I had not met on my two previous visits - Suureen. Suureen is a truly remarkable person. Absolutely NOTHING was too much trouble for her. She went above and beyond the 'call of duty' with the service that she provided for our group during our stay. The members in my group have learning disabilities and special needs, and one of our members has problems with his appetite and does not want to eat much. He has to be gently encouraged to eat for his own well being. Suureen was very attentive to our colleague and managed to get him to eat something at meal times. She was also very kind and caring when we had to call an amblance as this member suffered an epileptic fit just prior to sitting down for our last meal. Suureen got down on the floor and was very kind and gentle to our colleague, reasurring him throughout that he would be okay.

I have never, in all my experience of staying at Hotels, come across such a wonderful, devoted and dedicated member of staff. She is a credit to the Company, and I cannot find the words to tank her enough. She 'waited' at our tables during all meals and took the time to make sure everyone got what they wanted to eat, even 'tweaking' the menu if need be.

I simply cannot thank Suureen enough for her kindness.

Now, moving onto Corrie, the Hotel's Entertaimnents Manager. My group was not part of her tour, but she invited us to join in with her activities, and it goes without saying that we did. Corrie a a 'natural' and a lovely lady. The 'games' she organised after our evening meals and just prior to the evening's entertainment, were extremely funny and very entertaining. Have to ever played 'Farmyard Bingo' before? She also took part in the entertainment on our last night and she was a joy to watch and listen to. I do not want to give away too much in case you are about to visit the Monarch, but let us just say that 'Shirley Bassey', the 'Grumpy Old Git' and the 'Queen' were extremely funny. Where Corrie finds the energy from I simply do not know, but if you are on one of her tours, lkook out for her 'T & P' stops.

Steve, the Hotel's General Manager, was again, extremely proffesional and very helpful. There is always a 'Welcome Meeting' at the Monarch, where special attention is given to 'Heath & Safety,' but not in a boring way. This is what 'good managent' is all about.

I think if I was to sum this up by stating that the Monarch Hotel in Bridlington, is perhaps the ONLY hotel that I have stayed in where I simply do not want to leave on 'Check-Out' day.

My THIRD visit now, but certainly not my last. Please check out my previous two reports on the Monarch for more information and personal thoughts,

Room Tip: Its the Monarch - what more do you want?
