Just returned from a Group Holiday at this hotel. This was our second visit and we all had a super time yet again. The bedrooms are spotlessly clean, walk in showers in most rooms, comfy beds, no complaints. The dining room is light and airy and the staff very efficient, friendly and always cheery The food is very good indeed, plenty of variety..Reception staff are always very pleasant and willing to offer advice. We have stayed at many of the Leisureplex Hotels(part of the Alfa Holiday Group) and I have say this is probably the best so far. The bar staff offer excellent service. Entertainment was provided every night, all very good indeed and enjoyed by all. Last but not least, unlike most hotels, the Manager always seems to be on hand behind Reception and is very friendly and helpful. THe hotel is located on the South Cliff and yes, it can be hilly but there are two cliff lifts down to the promenade and harbour, one is fairly close to the hotel, so it is not a problem.

Cannot find anything at all to complain about. This hotel offers excellent value for money. We will no doubt return again.

Stayed in this hotel in early April the hotel is very clean,and rooms also and decently decorated.The dinning room and concert room are very presentable, staff helpful throughout the hotel.The only downside is the town is very hilly.

Room Tip: Try to ger a room at the rear of the hotel for a view over the town.

The staff really do make this hotel.
Excellent all round.
Cleanliness,service and meals all excellent.
Only down side is if travelling by coach,the local council don't provide a coach bay for set down and pick up at the hotel .(Have to double park),this is no fault of the hotel though.

We arrived via an Alpha coach trip on Monday 24th February. A warm welcome by the Manager and a brief summary of the hotel, area and facilities. Booking in was quick and efficient, we were given our keys and a card with our meal times. As we were travelling with a man with a learning disability I had phoned the hotel prior to our arrival to request that we had rooms close together. Our wish was granted and we were given rooms 120 and 125 a single and double. Our rooms were clean and had all you would expect from a reasonably priced hotel.

The menu was great and catered for vegetarians with a choice of dishes. The main menu had plenty of choice and there was a chefs special each day that you had to pre-order in the morning at breakfast.

Alpha provided a trip to York and Whitby, which you could order a packed lunch for from the hotel. This was not included in the price but on Wednesday our day of rest in Scarborough the hotel provided a light lunch.

The entertainment was great, we usually end up going to our rooms early but the performers kept us up!

I would like to thank all the hotel staff for making our stay with them memorable, we will return!
