“Lovely 3 day stay”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

The food was very good! Evening meals were three course all very tasty and served with a smile from the helpful serving staff.Breakfast was full English plus.It was self service but that was good as you could choose what you wanted and how much you wanted. Our room was clean and bathroom modern with plenty of hot water. Yes the corridors do need a refurb but to us that is not important.The entrance has the amazing victorian interior and the atmosphere is fantastic!!
The hotel is in a great position walking to shops or to the front not too far away. Parking at NCP only a few minutes walk away costing £8 for 24hrs.
Yes would go back again!

This hotel is now part of the Brittania chain and caters to coach parties. The service is dreadful. Breakfast is serve yourself with long queues waiting to make toast, wet cereal dishes and nothing refilled unless someone asks. We stayed in the Churchill suite- a fabulous room, but the bathroom was filthy with stains round the toilet, a stained rubber bathmat (we didn't use) and an empty shampoo tube in the shower from a previous occupant. Food at dinner is OK but service is useless. The swimming pool is a health hazard with crumbling paint and plaster some of which must drop into the water. In the ladies of 3 showers. 1 had no controls so couldn't be used, 1 was leaking all the time, the tray was stained brown, 1 worked but leaked as well - tray not as brown!! If you stay here DON'T pay full price its not worth it!!!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms at front. Churchill suite is fantastic. Ask to see room first some are tiny with no v...

Stayed at the Roal Hotel Scarborough recently. The staff wre very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. The whole building is dire need of renovation. Also our son and daughter stayed in with us, unfortunatley in a family room on the 4th floor with the lift out of order. With two small children they had to encounter the stairs to and from their room.

Room Tip: Avoid room aove the firist floor until the lift is repaired.

We just got back from a two night stay a few days ago and we had a lovely time! Must admit, I was a bit worried from reading the reviews but didn't see what all the fuss was about!
It was a surprise getaway for my partner and we both had nothing bad to say. Room was spacious and clean; we only had a standard double room and it had everything we could ask for two nights! Service for us prompt, polite and friendly, and the food was gorgeous!
We are a young couple and we loved the Hotel's older style and decor.
We went into the Spa and the pool water was lovely and warm - very relaxing to sit in the sauna for a bit too!
We would go back again, as it's a nice hotel and area to just escape and relax for a little bit!

Stayed here for 1 night as a last minute deal booked through bookit.com
Have passed this when I have been visiting Scarborough and thought to give a try
It is looking a bit shabby but the communal areas not too bad
No lift to the 5th floor where our room was located lots of steps and winding around corridors small bed, very tiny window which made the room quite dark and impossible to see out of, bore no resmblence to the room I thought I had booked.
To add insult to injury was made to pay a £2.00 admin fee for paying with my debit card - get real. Unable to get a drink in the bar at 9pm due to the bar staff had disappeared so gave up and went bed!!

Room Tip: Don't book at the last minute as you could end up anywhere, especially if you are not fit as n...

I'll start with the positives first. The hotel is in a great location and the staff we came in to contact with were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were very nice and there was plenty of choice.
Unfortunately there are more negatives than positives which is a shame as i can imagine at its peak the hotel must have been a wonderful place to stay. From what we saw the whole place needs some attention and a damn good clean as it seems years of neglect have taken there toll. The carpets are worn and marked in places, wall paper was hanging off, marks and stains on a lots of the walls in the corridoors and in our room, the furniture in our room was filthy, the bathroom was mouldy and limescale a plenty and the shower was poor.
We also had a little bug problem, whilst i cannot be certain they were bed bugs as i haven't had the misfortune to see them before, but comparing the numerous ones we saw in our room to pictures on the internet i believe they were and if they weren't bed bugs they were very closely related!! So please be careful if you do stop here that when you leave you are not taking home more than you would like as i understand they are a pain to get rid of.
Having said all of this and to be fair the hotel did have workmen in the hotel whilst we were there so hopefully work has already commenced to make the much needed improvements but until those are completed i would be careful if you do stay here and perhaps leave it a while until the works are finished.

Having read the recent reviews I am wondering if we stayed at the same hotel as everyone else. Staff very friendly, food was lovely and varied, particularly breakfast, swimming pool very clean and inviting, room was clean and serviced after breakfast. 42 inch TV, and afantastic view looking out to sea. No complaints for the value for money.
