Stayed here just for one night after visiting Burton Agnes Hall earlier in the day. Had a double room with a sea view it's worth the extra cost just for that view. Reception staff, waitresses all very pleasant and helpful. Room was very clean and comfortable and warm enough, large bathroom with shower over bath. Probably ready for a bit...

Living in Harrogate makes having a winter break by the sea in Bridlington, so easy. I have been staying at the Expanse nearly 30 years. It is still run by the same family who built it. The rooms are so clean, and every member of staff so accomodating . Having breakfast in the lovely dinning room looking out across Btidlington...

Good Staff, but the general manager should wake up to the fact that a 30 min. limit on WiFi is very outdated!! With the advent of a new Premier Inn on the horizon in Bridlington it should be time for them to update.

Wi Fi is unrestricted from today (13.11.15), we have been aware of this had become a problem some time ago, but extra cabling for additional bandwith has taken some time to obtain.

Looking at the outside the hotel looks like it needs tidying up or a lick of paint. However, once inside the decor is lovely. My room was spacious and the bathroom was very modern, but the view was of the opposite wall / room, however personally this was okay for my stay. Bed was comfy and usual tea tray available....

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again. Being an Art Deco building, the Expanse is rendered. Exterior painting is a little like the Forth Bridge, as soon as we finish one painting cycle we have to begin again !

The apartment we used (on several occasions to date) the Directors box is excellent, warm comfortable and stylish. Do not be put off by the outside of the hotel, it needs some TLC. There is very little on site parking, which can be a problem in the high season. The Marine bar attached to the hotel, is worth a visit...

I have stayed at the Expanse many times over the last four years with my family for short breaks. I find all the team here so helpful and friendly.

If any of you out there fancy an 80's weekend, I recommend you dig out your old Sony Walkman, pop in a Frankie Goes To Hollywood cassette, slip into some luminous pop socks, check into the Expanse and as Frankie says RELAX…. actually don’t it… Your stay would be more, grey army than luminous.
