Positive Reviews


Wonderful coastal views.

If there's a better spot in Scarborough to enjoy the gloriously panoramic vistas of the coast and North Sea then we've yet to come across it. Honestly, the views from here are nothing short of sensational.

Negative Reviews


Guest rooms are a little dated.

Whilst the hotel's public areas all look and feel very nice, many of the guest accommodations are in evident need of an upgrade. Peeling wallpaper, cracking paint and windows that refuse to open shouldn't really feature in a three-star hotel of this kind.


Lots of hills and steps around.

Hardly the hotel's fault but you should be aware that the hotel's cliff top situation ensures there are plenty of gradients to negotiate when exploring on foot.


But that's about it...

If you can put the accommodation issues and fatigue-inducing hills to one side then you'll find there's not actually that much to take issue with here...
