The views of Scarborough are certainly this hotels best feature, especially from the dining room's bay window. The hotel was clean and welcoming if a little outdated. It was a typical old fashioned and once charming seaside hotel but now needs a make over to bring it in line with other hotels in the area. having said that our room was clean, spacious and adequate for our needs. We also booked and paid for a sea view which was obscured by scaffolding as the outside of the hotel is under going some restoration work, we were not offered a reduction nor an apology for the inconvenience this caused. My partner and I had a half board stay and although the breakfast was good the evening meals could be improved, many of the dishes were prepacked and made up from packets (the creamy Carbonara and the garlic mushrooms were suspiciously the same dish!) It wouldn't take much to make the evening meals excellent by using fresh, locally sourced and prepared ingredients. All in all we have no real complaints and having read the reviews on Trip Advisor (and other websites) regarding the Esplanade I would say that it was value for money.
