“SURPRISINGLY PLEASED!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2011

i have never been on a Sherings holiday until my parents invited me along to this coach holiday. I am 49 years old and thought it might be fun to see what the parents get up to in their retirement! I paid a supplement of £10 for a single room over looking the front sea-view, my room was extremely clean and comfortable & had every convenience possible although some parts of hotel need a bit of tlc..
Our coach driver, Roger was a delight to be with & full of knowledge about Scarborough, Whitby, York & Heartbeat Country all the places we visited during our 4 day trip.
Our waitress always had a smile for us and was very efficient, the meals were very good for the price we paid, £119 including free drinks from 7.30 to 10.30pm. The only downside was the evening meal was served at 6.30 till 7.30. We had entertainment every evening which consisted of bingo, singing , dancing, a real variety of talent and a quiz. The hotel staff worked tirelessly to make our stay enjoyable. I for one am not going to wait until i retire to try another one of these holidays out!

Just come back from a Shearings holdiday and it was very good value for money. Food excellent company excellent entertainment very good, except for the last night. It seemed very dragged out. Could have made it shorter and more interesting. Apart from that our whole group had a really good time.

We went to this hotel on a self drive basis. We paid the full price and also paid for an upgraded room. The view was excellent but the room was very shabby i.e. old seats burst with foam showing. Bed base burst. Bathroom door with no lock but even so would not stay closed. Tile grouting around bath black with dampness. On several occasions we had no hot water due to hotel boiler breaking down. Hygiene in restaurant could have been better i.e. dirty crockery. The standard of food was average and with small portions. Breakfast buffet not replenished unless asked to do so. Reception area not very welcoming. Plus points - entertainment good and staff friendly. Been to this hotel a number of years ago but this time found that the standard has gone down hill. Old hotel in need of upgrade.

This is a Shearings hotel well in need of refurbishment.
the food is all portion controlled , deserts were still frozen in the middle, Service is not bad and the hotel has good views if you pay more.

Hotel overlooking North Bay with lovely views but hilly location posed a problem to guests with limited mobility. Restaurant service very poor. Food quality varied and was sometimes cold. Paid extra for sea-view room but this was very small and one had to climb on to a step to see the view from the small window. Entertainment each evening was OK. Would not stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Standing on the headland, near Scarborough's ancient castle ruins, the Norbreck is the only hotel in town which looks out over both the North and South Bays, with breathtaking panoramic sea view. From this peaceful location you can rest in the convivial atmosphere of the bar lounge or in the comfort of the restaurant and savour the scenic sights of golden sands and ocean waters. In the hub of the town itself, lying just ten minutes' away, there is an array of shops and holiday attractions. While a day trip takes you to York or to see the moors, to test your nerves at Flamingo Land or to revisit 'Brideshead' at Castle Howard. There's such a lot to see and do in the area! The hotel does not have a car park. However street parking is available nearby. ... more   less
