Thank you for your comments and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. With regards to the ramp; unfortunately due to the nature of the building and the size of the footpath at the front of the hotel, we cannot fit a ramp in. Due to health and safety the gradient of the ramp would mean...

The room offers very good views to the South but the South Bay od Scarborough cannot be seen due to the South facing aspect of the hotel. The amenities are good as is the food and service. The particular room we have enjoyed for some years is excellent, large and airy and has just been decorated. The Spa complex is...

We stayed here with our young daughter and really enjoyed our trip. The hotel itself is a typical Victorian terrace hotel but is in an ideal location directly next to the cliff tram down to the sea, it has lovely gardens opposite, and exquisite views over the South Bay (away from the main Bay Area). There are plenty of local...
