“Mostly Good”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night break at the Mount. We booked a superior room with seaview, we picked this hotel because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. Our room was good but not spotless, there was dust between the cupboards and in the bathroom dirt around the shower shield. The view obviously was lovely and worth paying extra for. I asked for a quiet room and was given a room next to the lift, not the quietist spot! However it didnt really cause a problem because I was woken up around 6 each morning by someone leaving their room early. The staff were pleasant but like another review I found the receptionist on arrival and departure slightly distracted and not giving us her full attention. Breakfast was lovely and the staff at breakfast time excellent. The hotel lounge and bar area were comfortable and I found our bed very comfy as well, the pillows were excellent. Overall a good experience but I might try another hotel next time.

This hotel and its staff were just the best. Congratulations to the owner (lang may your lum reek!), and her staff: receptionist, and Antonio, waiter with his motorbike.

View: magnificent. We happened to visit at the beginning of July's heatwave, which does help the ambience, of course. Breakfast (they had an award for this): the best, the freshest. Forget your buffets: this is what a freshly prepared breakfast should be.

My wife and I visited, driving a Supercar (McLaren MP4): we could not park within 1/4 mile. Moral: arrive early to park in front of the hotel if you own an expensive car.

You must visit this hotel!

You won't find slick, designer modernity at the Mount, or homogenous 'international' standards of hospitality.
What you will find is a comfortable, quirky hotel with gorgeous sea views, excellent cuisine at reasonable prices and a thoroughly warm, if not effusive, Yorkshire welcome.
Bar and lounge facilities are more than adequate, but choice of beers is poor and surely pop music has moved on since Little Michael Jackson!
These are minor criticisms and I would thoroughly recommend the Mount, which has a devoted and loyal clientele.

Room Tip: Do ask for a sea view. Our room on the top floor was roomy and well-furnished, with a large bathroo...

We booked this hotel based on other reviews and the pictures attached to the website. I was going to book a guest house and wish i had, but decided to treat my wife to a nice hotel! Unfortunatley it was not what we expected, upon arrival we sensed this was not going to be good as the reception lady dealt with the 2 people in front of us we felt invisible there no acknowledgment that we were there, no "will be with you in a minute" as she twice dissapeared off from the reception desk for around 10 mins at a time whilst we just stood there! Our room 55 was at the top of the building whilst the room clean was furniture was faded 1970's chipboard not the nice wooden type in the pictures as like the tiny TV and grey faded curtain netting! The view was a rusting fire exit and derelict building! The shower was not brilliant either. As for the breakfast that was very average and definitley not worth the £15.00 they were asking if you were not a resident, service was slow and i had to send the fried bread back as it was dripping with oil when lifted of the plate! Whilst the place was clean we thought it was over priced and to be quite honest we have stayed in better quality friendlier guest houses with the same facilities for far less than the £130.00 we paid! You also have to bear in mind that i book over 200 rooms a year for staff accomodation and so know what to expect for the right price. Very dissapointed not the nice romantic break we envisgaed and would not reccommend!

Having been brought up in Scarborough we can tell you the location is ideal everything is handy
and parking with the permit purchased at £3 per day from the hotel was a real bonus.
Sea view rooms look south over to the Spa. Rooms very clean and tidy as was the hotel.
We were on B&B and I can tell you that the breakfast was the best we have had, waiter service none of this bufet stuff you get today in most hotels.
Well done to all the staff for making my wife and I very happy.

Higgledy pigledy hotel, which I love, very Scarborough, sort of comfortable, faded and creaky. We opted for a sea view room and the view was amazing. Staff were helpful, the Service for breakfast excellent, as was the food. Bed was a bit soft for me and the parking could be a problem although we were lucky and got a spot right outside, reception will provide a parking ticket.
Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: The sea view is with it.
