Just returned from a bargain break at the Norbreck Hotel, It is difficult to understand how anyone can find fault at the price they charge. However here are a few things that may help you decide if the Norbreck is for you.
(1) The view from side, front or back is exceptional, both bays being visible from the hotel which stands close to the impressive Scarborough Castle. For history or literary buffs just behind the hotel is a very pretty church where the grave of Anne Bronte can be found.
(2) The hotel is an old building which is ready for some refurbishment, but this in my view adds to its charm. The quaint old fashioned lift with folding gate is an interesting relic, our room was a bit cramped, but contrary to some previous reports we found the hotel to be warm and cozy.
(3) Staffs at all levels were hard working friendly and efficient. Special mention deserves to be given to Craig the young barman who impressed with his very professional manner. I am sure that he is destined for greater things.
(4) Food was of very acceptable standard without being outstanding. For dinner there were always three choices of starter and three main courses of meat or fish with an added vegetarian option plus choices of puddings or cheese and biscuits. A glass of wine was included as was coffee or tea. My only observation would be that all meals came with the same vegetables which sometimes was inappropriate. Breakfast had a selection of cereals, porridge, grapefruit followed by Full English etc or kippers.
(5) Entertainment. On Friday we were entertained by an energetic young singer comedian followed on Saturday by the excellent resident artist Daniel Defoe, and excellent cabaret from a very funny comedian.
(6) Parking is at the hotel or close by (the hotel providing parking passes for the town parking zones)

We enjoyed our stay and found it to be exceptional value.

We have just arrived home after our 4th stay, and again we had agreat time hotel, staff and entertainment excellent. Only one fault the food was not as good as other years but you could not blame the staff. Shearings will set the budget for them to work with and I amsure the chef did his best.

Room Tip: pay extra for sea view

After reading a review of this hotel i feel i have to write one of my own! This hotel has beautiful views overlooking the sea, The staff were all very friendly and couldnt do enough for us, the rooms were very clean and lovely and warm we had radiators and we had to turn them off and it was freezing outside, the food was lovely plenty to choose from and served piping hot we honestly couldnt fault it and for the price we paid i really dont know how they do it, some people just want to moan about everything you see them on t.v looking behind the bed for dust all i can say is stop moaning about every little thing and start enjoying whats there to be enjoyed. we had a day out in York an enjoyable day it was too ty shearings lovely cheap and friendly what more can anyone ask for!!!

This is a Shearings hotel which can be booked online as a self-drive. Prices vary throughout the year.

Excellent room, average food, free drinks in the evening!

Bridlington and Whitby within easy reach and well worth a visit

Room Tip: Online booking gikves you several options e.g. close to lift, bath, quiet room etc.
