“Civilised but unpretentious, lovely ambience, well trained, helpful staff.”
Reviewed 7 August 2010

We had an delightful short break during at an especially stressful period of our lives. The level of service and care was exemplary, the hotel is superbly managed with an excellent ethos. The surroundings are delightful, our room was both comfortable and characterful, public rooms and outdoor spaces mirrored that. Food was well planned, prepared and presented. The only criticism is that the hotel could be better signposted off its access road.

This hotel is set in beautiful grounds, the views are lovely ... you can sit with your afternoon tea looking out at the sheep grazing. The drive up to the hotel is also very nice. We enjoyed our stay here very much. We had a good deal from Travelzoo, and it was great value for money. The staff couldn't do enough for you, and the food was very good throughout our stay. The only disappointing thing was the room, while it was clean and roomy and comfortable, it was very dated and did need a total re dec. When chatting to the manager Ann, she did inform us that the room we were staying in was due to be decorated.

The barman could not have been more helpful and informative on things to do in the surrounding area - even printing off train time tables for the nearby Steam trains.

We would definitely go back to this hotel - we had a very relaxing stay - and loved the surrounding areas of Whitby and Robin Hood Bay.

Pat, my wife and I, have just had two days at our favourite Scarborough hotel. This was our fifth visit. and we were looked after very very well again. We will be going back for the friendly staff and great food.

The Wrea Head is not very well sign-posted but is in a great location, up a long driveway & in lovely grounds so is very quiet. Helpful staff, had our bag carried to our room but not terribly impressed with the room. It was tired & in need of a refurb. To be fair there were decorators outside on the morning we left so perhaps it's imminent. Paint was flaking off & the windows were covered in mould. The blind in the bathroom wasn't clean & neither was the bath. We had room 12 which I wouldn't recommend, it was right at the top of the staff stairs to the kitchen & so you could smell cooking all the time. Kippers from 7am is not pleasant!

Food was nice, staff helpful & grounds peaceful but wouldn't go back in a hurry. For the money I would expect a little better.

We decided on a last minute break and chose this hotel after reading trip advisor reviews - they weren't wrong. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - the hotel is beautiful and in a wonderful setting, our suite was stunning, the service from everyone was outstanding - professional yet friendly, the food was very good indeed and the starters and desserts in particular were excellent. There was a warmth that we have not felt in other hotels of a similar quality. Indeed, we look forward to another visit in the not too distant future.

Reviewed 30 July 2010

This is a beautiful house with wonderful views and the staff were all very attentive and welcoming. Our room had extraordinarily narrow space to sit in on the loo - watch out if you are generously sized!! The mattress needs replacing as does the blind, but the views were great.
The food was OK. As another reviewer has suggested, you can't take the kitchen seriously when the menu is a laminated card, and I too ran out of choices on the second night. Also, surely if you're providing a cheeseboard none of the cheeses should be straight out of the fridge!! Breakfast wasn't special (cold croissants?! and poached egg reeking of vinegar?!)
I travel a lot and I'm spoiled. This is a friendly hotel in a lovely place and if you get a deal you will have good value. (The dinner menu is all a la carte so do check how much you can spend!) You will enjoy the period reception rooms.
