It was just a flying visit here for one night. The room was comfortable and clean. Would recommend for a comfortable stay. Great location for the beach and easy access out of Bridlington too. Parking was easy on an evening.

This was our second lovely break in the Directors Box apartment which is spacious and comfortable with some original period features. It affords wonderful views of the sea and Bridlington Bay. I would have scored higher but It does still have some minor things that need sorting - i.e. couple of curtain hooks missing, constantly dripping shower. The bed linen... More

We have had many stays at this family run 3 Star Hotel on the sea front at Bridlington. The Marine Bar next door is also owned by the family and many of the staff have worked at the hotel for years. Rooms are very varied and are priced accordingly. All are very clean with comfy beds and are well fitted... More

It was a lovely hotel with brilliant, friendly and very helpful staff. We only used the place as a base for two nights so we didn't use the... More

We attended a birthday party here. Apart from the hotel providing the room and dreadful food the rest was organised by a party planner. The food was just the worst we have seen and the service was non existent. The party was a great success but only because the hotel didn't arrange it.

As you have not responded to my previous reply, I would like to clarify what I think has happened with the party that you attended. The Children's Party was catered for the number children who the party organisers had advised the hotel there would be, however, on the day a small percentage of those that were due to come actually...

We stayed at the Expanse Hotel during the scooter rally weekend and had a great time. The hotel is very good and is in a great location right on the sea front. Our room was a good size with a newly refurbished and spacious bathroom. The bedroom was a little dated but it was fine for our needs and had... More

This was a solo trip down memory lane. Knowing the area but not the hotels I chose the Expanse and was pleasantly surprised. I had a sea view room with a balcony - very clean and comfortable although an easy chair had been crammed in when there really wasn't room. There were a couple of minor maintenance issues that I...

We highly recommend the Expanse Hotel - very comfortable, helpful and friendly staff, excellent food and wonderful location right by the sea. We really did have a sea view from our room. Our first visit to the hotel and we hope not our last.

We had a lovely trip and a great stay at The Expanse. The room was really wonderful, and breakfast was great. We were visiting Bridlington for a family wedding, and had a great time with friends and family. The people in Bridlington are nice too!
