“Perfect Hotel”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We have been returning to the Gordon twice a year for the past ten years which in the first instance will give an idea of the high standard of accommodation and service that this family hotel has provided and continues to provide for its guests from not only in the Uk but overseas.
You will find a warm and friendly welcome that starts on your arrival with the propriators, Lawrence and Christine greeting all guests with a welcoming cup of tea or coffee, and this cordiality continues throughout your stay.
Cleanliness and guest provisions are maintained throughout the hotel to the very highest standard together the provision of an excellent selection of dishes for both breakfast and evening dinner.
The hotel's location allows for unobstructive views across to Peasholm Park with car parking both on the property and unrestricted on the adjacent road.
On each evening, entertainment organised by Lawrence can be found in the front bar for which everyone is invited to participate or you can just relax with a drink in the TV lounge.
The beach and sea front activities can be reached either directly using the road footpath or as we prefer, a pleasent stroll through Peasholm Park.
It is through the above that I can confidently recommend this hotel be it for couples, families or for meeting friends and one I am sure you will want to return to in the future.

If it's a nice clean and friendly hotel you are looking for then you will not go wrong with the Gordon. The Hotel owners Christine and Lawrence are very friendly and cannot do enough for all the guests. From the start of our stay to the end of the stay we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms are clean, warm and have lots of hot water. My overall view is that the Gordon is excellent value for money and we will be going back. The Gordon is in the quieter part of town, however it's only a 5 minutes walk to the beach.

Room Tip: Room on the top floor have sea views.

After our many stays at the Gordon I can recommend the Gordon to anyone. The meals and rooms are of the highest standard.You will find a warm welcome from the owners Christine and Lawrence and their friendliness really makes your stay the best you will find anywhere.Look no further if you want entertaining in the well stocked bar or a quiet sit in the lounge. An entrance to Peasholm Park is only a few yards away from the hotel where you can wander down to the North Bay and all it's attractions. I would recommend the Gordon to to couples and families alike.

My wife and my daughter have just returned from our 3rd stay at the Gordon and it certainly won't be our last. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. The hotel is very clean and the food is both fresh and very tasty, and overall it represents excellent value for money. The most striking feature however are the owners, Christine and Lawrence who make you feel very welcome, and provide a service that is unrivalled. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and they go the extra mile to ensure your stay is a memorable one. They also provide the evening entertainment which we thoroughly enjoy and which provides something to look forward to after a day at the beach. A throughly enjoyable stay, in a great location and with fantastic service - a place you must stay if you are going to Scarborough! Mark Fellows

I do not go in for the brash, noisy, town hotels, preferring a nice quiet country hotel or one in a quiet part of town. The Gordon Hotel is the latter, a delightful hotel overlooking the sea, Peasholm Glen and then Castle. It is ideal for children being on a quiet road within easy walking distance of the parks in the North Bay and the sea. I spend 3 lovely nights in this very quiet hotel situated in a quiet part of town overlooking the North Bay. The road that the hotel is situated on does not have the parking restrictions that many of the hotels in the town seem to suffer, There was ample parking for about 6 cars off road and loads of parking on the road. There is a tendency to get blocked in as the parking runs up the side of the hotel but I parked on the drive of the hotel was not blocked in and even went out in the evening and all day and still parked in the same place. No doubt if I had been blocked in then the other drivers would easily move for me. I spent the night in a double room overlooking the castle and the sea, but was not charged extra for a double with single occupancy. Many of the hotels that I stay in charge extra for this.

The hosts were very pleasant, very chatty and came into the bar in the evening to chat, also they chatted after the meal and made everyone feel very welcome. Many of the guests were regulars coming back time and again and even coming back many times in the same year. This is good to see as it shows that the hotel is consistent and has good standards.

There was entertainment on one evening, dominoes - but I did not take part and sat and had a quiet drink in the bar; there was another room available to have a drink if dominoes was not your thing. Breakfast was very good and even had full English breakfast served at 8:30 every morning, the owner of the hotel even came in to tell us that the breakfast was ready, the same applied to the evening meal, a lovely 4 course meal at a very reasonable price. The owners certainly put themselves out for the guests, were very friendly and very accommodating.

This is a lovely hotel and I will certainly be returning there again, and have booked for two more visits in the summer.

Room Tip: all rooms are en suite. when you book, if you have mobility problems then let the owners know, they...

Stopped a couple of nights over Easter. The hotel is spotlessly clean the food was freshly cooked and the whole place had a warm welcoming feel. Lovely peaceful location far enough away from noise but easy to walk to the attractions . Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
