Just spent the weekend here staff all very pleasant especially Liz on the front desk. Room spotless and very comfy bed. Breakfast was good had plenty of choice. Great location on the beach front and not far to walk to the town centre. Would definitely recommend and will return.

Do they have irons in the room?
There was certainly an ironing board in the room so I would assume there must have been an iron!

You can park for free on the road outside the hotel from 5pm to 9am. From 9 until 5 the hotel will sell you a two day scratch-card for £6. That's at least what you will have to pay to park anywhere in Scarborough and there are always plenty of spaces nearby

Hello, The double room was very comfortable, we could see the seafront from the window. There was an ensuite bathroom with a shower. Hope that helps

What is the menu like for dinner.? Can you give examples of some of the meals ?
When we were there, didn’t see anyone in the restaurant for dinner. Did see some of the bar snacks which did look to be ok and definitely very reasonably priced.

"Ask for one that dosnt allow animals"
"We were on the ground floor"
"Fab sea views from the front but if you want a quiet nights rest - you could hear a pin drop in the rooms at the back of the hotel"
"Request a sea view if possible."
"Buy your drinks between noon and 6pm they are cheeper."
