Second visit to the Norbeck with Shearings weekend plus. Rooms are OK bathrooms are small but you don't spend much time in there. The room was a bit chilly on first night but there was a heater to plug in that did a good job. The food was ok plenty of choice, something to suit everyone. Some of the waiting...

Thank you for the review Anne and weren't you the lucky one with the bingo win! I hope you brought yourself something nice with the money. There is lots to see in Scarborough and the surrounding areas so it is good that you had 3 dry days to enjoy it. I look forward to seeing you next time.

Excellent views.Room needed updating but clean. Staff overstretched at mealtimes and had to wait a long time between courses.The views made it a pleasurable stay.Nightly entertainment was ok.Would stay again for short break.

First I'll get the little minus points out of the way. A number of rooms had the window sills flooded during Storm Doris (extreme conditions I know) and maybe the windows need rubber seals around them. The other small minus point is the lack of a lounge facility for people to talk in, without interfering with other people's enjoyment of...

Thanks for your review. Storm Doris did try to blow us away, along with a lot of others in the country, and the hotel stood up to her as best it could. We are looking to get the remaining windows replaced and appreciate your comments. I am very proud of the team I lead here and it is nice to...

Just returned from a five day break with Shearings..We have been on many of these breaks in the past and all have been good in all aspects, and the Norbreck was no exception.

Thank you for your review Mike. We are extremely lucky to hold the position we do, with not too far a walk to the town and seafront (even if they are down hill and uphill coming back). The dinner service is one of our busiest times of day but as you say, my staff are great and it is good...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Standing on the headland, near Scarborough's ancient castle ruins, the Norbreck is the only hotel in town which looks out over both the North and South Bays, with breathtaking panoramic sea view. From this peaceful location you can rest in the convivial atmosphere of the bar lounge or in the comfort of the restaurant and savour the scenic sights of golden sands and ocean waters. In the hub of the town itself, lying just ten minutes' away, there is an array of shops and holiday attractions. While a day trip takes you to York or to see the moors, to test your nerves at Flamingo Land or to revisit 'Brideshead' at Castle Howard. There's such a lot to see and do in the area! The hotel does not have a car park. However street parking is available nearby. ... more   less
