The hotel is located on the cliff edge overlooking the sea and is in a great location for exploring Scarborough. It looks very nice from the outside and in the lobby of the hotel, with some lovely original features. I think the rooms need refurbishing, whilst the size was great, they need updating. The bathroom suite was very basic and... More

We stayed here mid week, our room was a decent size and very clean, bathroom, was lovely with a Jacuzzi. We had a evening meal which both me and my partner enjoyed, and a free Bottle of wine, and a breakfast on the morning, we couldn't fault our room, staff or food. We loved it and wil be visiting again,
