“Home from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

Have been staying at the Gordon for the last 12 years sometimes 2 or 3 times a year. Would not stay anywhere else, Christine and Lawrence are the perfect hosts and cannot do enough for you. Evening entertainment is so good, funny and relaxing. Food is excellent and rooms are a delight to stay in. roll on our next trip later in the year, looking forward to it again. Maureen and Derek, Hetton-le-Hole.

Me and my wife just needed a few days break, so we plumped for the Gordon in Scarborough, and so glad we did. From the moment we arrived Lawrence and Christine could not do enough for us and were extremely friendly and nice to talk to. The room was lovely and clean and the breakfast was fresh, hot and very tasty! Just across the road you can have a nice stroll around Peasholm Park. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this place, thanks very much for a great few days! Jason & Julie.

Thoroughly enjoyed our Weekend break at the 'Gordon'. My wife was recovering from a recent operation on her right foot, we decided on a short break in a quiet part of Scarborough. From the initial phone booking to the time we left we were made to feel like one big happy family! The Gordon is situated in a very quiet part of the North Bay Area which allows easy access to any outside places, particularly further North and the 'Moors' which were splendid! If you want a proper Scarborough Hotel experience, choose the Gordon. you get a good night's rest in the soft, cosy beds which all the rooms have to offer. The hosts Christine and Lawrence make you feel so welcome, they are very helpful and go out of their way to help and be friendly. They look after everyone as if they were family, brilliant!! The food is excellent quality and very good value for money. This was definitely our very best weekend stay, we are coming back for a longer stay quite soon. Thank you, to Christine & Lawrence!

Room Tip: Their Web-site shows every room in the Hotel! Spacious and highly commended.

A truly wonderful break from the norm.

Comfortable rooms, fantastic food, and welcoming staff.

I'd recommend the Gordon to anyone in a heartbeat, it's a decent distance away from the town centre which allows for pleasant walks in the surrounding parks and the beach but negates any excess noise from traffic, so you get a good night's rest in the soft, cosy beds the rooms have to offer. The morning and evening meals were simply delicious, and all three courses served hot and fresh from the kitchen at fairly reasonable times.

If you want a proper Scarborough Hotel experience, choose the Gordon!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are good sizes and all are top notch in terms of comfort, contact the owner if you...

My wife and I have been stopping at the Gordon Hotel for many years and for the last three years we have been taking our grandchildren. Christine and Lawrence make us so welcome; the meals are great, the bedrooms well appointed and the guests all so friendly. But for us the highlights are the evenings spent in the bar where we all play games and Lawrence keeps us entertained with his ready wit and string of jokes.

Another big advantage for us is the position of the hotel in a quiet area at the top of Peasholm Park with the boating lake only a short stroll away down the Glen.

So if you are looking to stay in Scarborough then we strongly recommend the Gordon Hotel. It really is the perfect place to stay.
