We stayed as a family, a couple and 2 teenagers in a family room ( the dreaded 336..see a previous review ) for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself is excellently postioned for all amenities. The communal areas were marvellous and still retained a lot of old style seaside glamour. We thought the room itself was well...

Visited with my family for a cheap mid week break in the school holidays, although we got the rooms relatively cheap I expected more. We stayed in a family room with my two children. The curtains were hanging off the rail, stained bathroom with mound and a lam shape that was damaged and broken. The hotel in its former glory...

We stayed at a The Royal for 3-4 times a week over a four week period due to a relative being admitted to Scarborough Hospital. All the staff on reception were brilliant and couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant. The food was very good though one waitress could certainly try ones patience. Our room was at the front...

This was the first time we had stayed at the hotel .. we ended up in a suite which was lovely. It had 2 bedrooms plus a bathroom. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The hotel was having work done on it so there was alot of banging but that didn't put us off. The view was not great...
