Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked just for an overnight stay so the family could see my brother and his wife for the first time for 3 years. Spotted there was a spot using an online site but rang the hotel themselves to book the rooms. For the 5 of us we required 2 singles in one room and a double with a single in the other. This came to £200 which was a touch cheaper than stated on the website.
We arrived in Scarborough around 11:50, popped in to the hotel and was able to sort out my parking scratch card (valid for 2 days).
I knew from the website that the rooms wouldn't be ready until 1pm but I was able to take my room keys with me.
We didn't actually get back to the rooms until around 8:30 after having a cracking day.
The rooms themselves were fine, as you would expect the three bed family room being a third bigger than the 2 singles room.
We actually brought our own towels with us, I'm sure I spotted somewhere that they didn't provided them, so it was a bit of a surprise to find a set of towels on the beds, although I'm not complaining.
I did ask for the two rooms to have a sea view and my what a view it is, beautiful. I do like the North bay.
I tried out the shower, some of these electrical ones can be a bit poor, but this had a good flow to it.
I didn't sleep great but that was probably me as I'm a light sleeper, only heard the gulls in the morning running across the roof.
For the breakfast we had cereal, the veggie version of the full English, toast and tea and this set us up for the day.
At the end of the stay, in these COVID times, you were asked to place the used towels in a black bin and any waste from the room in a separate one which was fair enough.
All the staff encountered were pleasant and we enjoyed the stay, thanks very much.

Stayed at this lovely hotel with work for a few days, the hotel is family owned and run, the whole team are a true credit to the hotel nothing is to much and they often go above and beyond to help guests, the food was outstanding (credit to Gary and Andrew) fresh tasty and service was like well oiled machine.

The hotel its self is well looked after and well maintained, the bed was comfy, room well heated and ventilated and spotless.

The group of around 47 people i took to stay here have been visiting it for 16 years some even visit a few times a year that alone proves this little place is a gem.

Ive stayed in a number of hotels and B&Bs with my job and this is by far top of the list now!

Well done Gary, Andrew and the team!

Stayed here for a long weekend package break with a coach company. Hotel has stunning views over the North Bay Beach. It is worthwhile booking a room with sea view.
Although bedrooms are a little dated, they were very clean. Bathroom on the small side & shower could do with updating. Temperature control came off in my hand! Bed very hard, a mattress topper would help.
Stayed on breakfast & evening meal basis. Food very traditional: roast dinner, cottage pie, apple crumble, bread & butter pudding etc. All OK. Breakfast cereals definitely supermarket own brands.
Looked like lounge and bar area had recently been refurbished. Entertainment provided on 2 out of the 3 nights we stayed.
Do not consider hotel suitable for anyone with mobility issues. With regards to COVID measures, plenty of hand sanitizers around the hotel, tables cleaned after use, but very few staff wearing masks.

I’m going to start with some positives.
We arrived in stormy wind and relentless rain , a great location , the hotel was warm and dry . Public areas were welcoming,The staff were friendly and the breakfast was lovely ( at an extra cost of £8 each per night)
I had chose this hotel on the lovely big bay windows with table and chairs to sit and look at the sea views, as shown on their website . I booked a deluxe room with seaview ,that showed the exact kind of room that suited us .We knew the weather wasn’t going to be great on arrival but didn’t care as we were looking forward to watching the stormy seas from our window .
We was in for a shock , our room was on the top floor , very tiny , with 2 small windows with no room for a table or watching the waves unless you stand up and lean on the window .
The bathroom was very tiny and dated , all the furniture looked like stuff you might pick up from a car boot, very worn and chatty . The feel of the room reminded me of where somebody might have lived for years and never decorated and done any upkeeping . It was a very depressing looking room .
We had a 2 night stay and stayed out all day as couldn’t think of anything worse to come back to .
It might have felt like a different experience if we had a room advertised on the website . We personally wouldn’t return.

Booked a sea view room, stressed it was for work as well. Room on top floor, very high window, yes a view, but of the sky, only way you could see the sea was to stand either on the bed or on tiptoe at the window, hardly a sea view.
Next the desk, well facing a blank wall, and far to small to put a lap top or papers on it. Room very small as well, not very good. Had I been told restricted sea view, could have understood it, but to quot a sea view when sea view is impossible, not good at all. Only good thing was refunded money without problem, strange though, when I asked if they would like cash or card, told would prefer cash and I had to ask for a receipt, receipt hand written with no copy!!!

Stayed here for 4 nights , lovely clean room. Constant refills of tea and coffee in room. Food was extremely good and decent choice every day...staff were very pleasant, especially the young ladies who served most of the meals. We had a sea view room which certainly didn't disappoint....would definitely recommend 👌
Ideal location and enjoyed a walk every morning..

This was our 4th visit to the Boston at New Year. We also visit in the summer. Over the years we have visited lots of hotels used by Urquhart and this is one of the best. We love this hotel. Nothing is a bother to this family run hotel. Gary and Andrew are superb chefs. Arriving on 30th December our evening meal was roast chicken which was excellent followed by a lovely sweet. We had entertainment every evening. At breakfast on 31st we were given a free packed lunch before our day trip to York on returning we had free afternoon tea. The gala hogmanay meal was a 9 course meal whigh was superb. Hats were left on our table ready for our evening fun. Entertainment again was fab with everyone wishing each other a happy new year at 12. Most people on our coach have been going to this hotel for years. 1st Jan at breakfast we were asked if we wanted lunch at 1.30. At 3pm we had free prize bingo with super prizes. After that we had again free afternoon tea. Lovely entertainment in the evening. This hotel is so popular that you have to book early if you want to go at New Year. Please try this hotel and you will not be disappointed.

We got some last minute tickets for a concert and needed somewhere to stay at short notice. We found this place on booking.com for a reasonable price and was very impressed when we got there. Very friendly staff, spacious room which was dated but very clean, fantastic value for money and the view was amazing! Short walk from the open air theatre and about a 10 min walk to town in the opposite direction.
We liked it so much we asked if there was availability for the following week as we were at another concert, the girl on reception was unsure but a gent rang me a few days later to say we could have the same room and no need to prepay just pay on the day which was very trusting.
This will be my first choice of hotel now for future concerts in Scarborough. It's half the price of the local premier inn and much cleaner and friendlier than The Grand.
Thankyou for a lovely stay

On arriving at that Boston,noted approximately 11 steps up to the hotel entrance.One flight 4 step,then 7 or 8 step quite steep. Our room was on the second floor,there is a lift,for only 2 people.
The room was small,dated as we expected. Just enough room to navigate around the bed.There were tea,coffee making facilities,which were both vile,the teabag were not sealed so lost their flavour. Then the biggest shock,where was the toilet come bathroom.Behind a narrow dark wood door,that needed attention,as it was hanging off its hinges.Plus when opening door to room,the stay,hit the door to the shower hut. Well the shower you have to clamber over a foot high piece of boarding,Behind another dark wood door,that opened already into a small room the toilet come wash sink,nowhere for OUR toiletries,as you are only given a bar of soap, So our toiletries had to be left in our bags,on the already crammed worktop. There was no where to sit comfortably in our room,others than the bed,the only chair was a dining room chair and you nearly fell through that. The lights over the bed you hit your head on. No electric sockets either side of the bed.Double socket on wall between shower hole and cupboard housing toilet and sink.You had to place items you wish to charge,on a dirty carpet.Not ideal.Other sockets on already overloaded worktop,had mini tv and kettle.
Meals,I think because we were on a bargain break on a coach,portion control was inforce. Variety of starters,mains,desserts all well presented,by two lovely young ladies,which having looked after us through the few days we were there,were not present on our last morning.???
Location,The hotel is situated well for all amenities. The castle is within walking distance,Also the town centre. Word of warning the surrounding pavements are covered in dog faeces.
Sorry about photos,wrote review on tablet,photos on phone.

I can't praise this hotel enough. It has sea views, and is close to a beach where surfing is available. The staff (Andrew, Martin, and Victoria) were polite, friendly, attentive, and flexible.
It is about 15 minutes easy walk to the stores on South Bay Beach, and 10 minutes easy walk to North Bay.
I would defo stay again
