“Mount hotel”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Old style seaside resort hotel. I didn't mind the creaking floorboards, narrow corridors and the dirty piece of string you use to turn on the bathroom light. But the chairs were so worn you can't tell the original colour and the carpets were smelly. I had to wash my clothes when I got home as the smell lingered. Surprised it got such a high mark here - it's lower on booking.com

However breakfast was professional, in a grand style dining room with white starched table cloth; the shower was hot and the room was warm despite it being freezing outside at night.

The royal hotel had over booked so we stayed here. We really fell on our feet! Where to start? The room was spacious and clean. The bed is the best that I have slept in and the pillows where really good quality. The bathroom had a power shower and bath. There was a heated towel rail to make sure you had cosy towels. It was warm I the room, a little too warm but it was a surprising warm spell.
The welcome at reception was very warm. They could not do not enough to welcome us. The breakfast was the best bit. Local produce all the way through. Silver service all round. The only thing was at the royal the restaurant manger looked down his nose at us. You been warned. I would take the mount and pay a bit extra to be honest!

Room Tip: You don't havre have a sea room, but it is a real treat!

We stayed at The Mount for the first time last Saturday, and found it excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful, our room was spotless and comfortable, and it was warm (there was a harsh northeast wind outside), with a good view of the bridge and the sea. There was a good TV, hospitality tray, and goose down pillows. We had our dinner in the hotel, and the chef did us proud with 2 perfect steaks, great starter and lovely sweets. Breakfast was cooked to order, and the fried eggs were just right, bacon tasty - lovely. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially for a homely atmosphere.

Room Tip: Front on second floor was comfy with a good sea view

We chose here for Sundy lunch shortly after the New Year as it had good reviews on TA for food. It is certainly a big hotel, a bit dated in places but clean etc. Staff were friendly but the food was simply OK, perhaps our expectations were too high? I had nothing out of the ordinary, so felt a bit deflated afterwards! Glad we tried it but wouldn't return.

Thank you for your comments. The Mount Hotel offers a Traditional Sunday Lunch using high quality ingredients sourced from local producers, all the desserts are made on the premises and the food is served in a friendly but professional manor to the guest at their table.
We serve on average 60 Sunday Lunches per week and have a very high repeat business, I am sorry that you will not be one of these.

Stayed for one night in room 24, amazing spacious room, fabulous sea view, spotless. Breakfast was really enjoyable, lots to choose from, staff really warm, friendly and helpful. Normally stay elsewhere but will definitely be booking to come back. Didn't want to leave.

Picked this hotel after reading reviews on tripadviser. First impressions where mixed as the receptionist although friendly seemed distracted. Our room was very good, with loads of space, decor a little dated but spotlessly clean and had wonderful sea/ coastal views.
Breakfast ok, enjoyed our stay in Scarborough but not sure that we would return to this hotel.

Thank you for your review of The Mount Hotel, I was pleased that you found your room to be spacious and cleaned to a high standard, that you fully appreciated the fantastic views and enjoyed your breakfast.
I noted that you rated sleep quality on the poor side, I would value your comments on this so that improvements may be made to better this area for future guests. I am sorry that you probably won't be returning.
