“Mount Fantastic Short Stay Experience”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

The Mount Hotel Scarbrough is run by Helen and has been in their family since 1947. Helen is a perfect host and she offers the best of hospitality for her guests. The food is both superb and plentyful, we opted to dine at the hotel and we were not disappointed. Theai accommodation is of a high standard rooms are clean and well maintained. The room price was more expensive than your average B&B but both the service and the food were second to none. We would recommend the mount to our friends as it is a large hotel with a fantastic view but still keeps its personal touch.

Room Tip: Room 58 is definitley the most spacous but we prefer a room on the front with the spectacular sea vi...

My wife and I visit scarborough every October. I play in a weekend chess congress at the spar complex. I have tried all the other hotels in scarborough including some said to be 4 star and they dont compare to The Mount Hotel. We stayed in room 36 which is a suite, seperate bedroom lounge bathroom and walk in wardbrobe. Fantastic accomodation and easily better than any of the so called suites we have stayed in and for a lot less money.
The restaraunt needs to be seen to be believed. Set out and service like the savoy in London. Silver cutlery etc, highly polished. Proper napkins with a monogram and a napkin ring.
Quality of the food is excellent and plenty of it. Excellent views of the south bay area.
We will be using this family run hotel again next year and we can say without any equivocation this is one of the best hotels in scarborough. It does not have a swimming pool and is suited to a more discerning visitor perhaps without children but in our view these small matters are more than outweighed by the rest of its good point. They dont come much better than this one. The lady owner is maintaining standards seldom seen these days.

Room Tip: Room 36 is a suite- costs more but well worth it.

We had paid in advance for rooms at Travelodge St Nicholas (see my review) and discovered at 11 pm. that they were overbooked and full. We moved to The Mount. How fortunate we were. We had two excellent, large ensuite rooms with fantastic views over the sea. The rooms and bathrooms were ultra clean and comfortable. There was a large choice for breakfast which was excellent and the staff friendly and cheerful. Highly recommended.

After refusing to stay at The Grand we stayed at The Mount Hotel which was lovely. Clean and welcoming and lovely and warm which is a must in Scarborough in February! The staff couldn't do enough for you and the breakfast was the best I've had for years.
I highly recommend this hotel.

When my partner and I got together back in the 1980's we decided to try Scarborough, as she used to go there as a child with her parents. We sent off for 4 or 5 brochures, the only one that came back, literally the next day was from The Mount Hotel. I thought that was a good sign. Needless to say, we opted for The Mount, and we've been back there every year since, and for the past 10 years or so, twice, in May and September. When my company changed my sales area (I'm a sales rep.), to include North Yorkshire, there was only one place I could stay, and that means a visit every 4 weeks . Marks out of 5 in the above rating are not sufficient, everything about the place, the service, location, staff, food is first class and really needs marks out of 100, they would score 100 every time. The only drawback, parking is a bit of a problem, especially during the summer months.

I took my mum here for a 2 night break. The hotel is in an ideal location, close to the 'cliff lift'. My mum doesnt walk very well and would not have been able to climb the hill. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We had 2 single rooms on the top floor. The rooms are in definite need of refurbishment. However, all needs were met. Breakfast was not buffet style, and was very nice. We didnt stay in the hotel for dinner. There is one small lift which struggles to cope at busy times. Reasonably priced considering location.

This hotel is in a perfect location, we had a family room on the top floor and it was enormous. It was very comfortable and clean and had magnificent views of the bay and the Clifton bridge. The breakfast was amazing and it was all table service none of this buffet carry on when you are up on down the whole time. Everything was spotless and the staff were very friendly and couldnt do enough for you. We are only sorry we didn't have an evening meal there as everyone was very impressed. Overall a fantastic hotel and very good value.
