Reviewed 21 March 2014

Enjoyed our brief stay. Staff were very attentive. Room was ok but a bit too warm, being at the back the view was pretty grim. Breakfast was good.
One of my pet hates, however, and this happened at check-in, the phone rang and the receptionist stopped dealing with me to answer it. Why? I find that quite rude.

Honestly what can I say, I was booked into this establishment for 5 nights My room had a noisy radiator, I complained 5 times, in the first 48 hrs here I had experienced only 5 hrs sleep, I even threatened to sleep in the lounge , sleep deprivation is awful ! As a vegetarian, breakfast was Half a button mushroom, half a tomatoe, and an egg , however they did cook the vegetarian sausages that were supplied by my wonderful colleagues ! lunch buffet ( work related) a spoon of coleslaw , evening dinner was classic, all on offer was goats cheese starter followed by mushroom pasta. The second evening I explained I could not " live" on this diet for 5 nights I was then given ONE mushroom and 3 baby new potatoes for my main meal. On day 3 it hit misery when the very miserable and down right rude blonde female head waitress bought me my ordered cheeseboard that I had ordered for my evening meal..Quote waitress " that's not a big dinner" Me " No it's not but you don't have a selection for vegetarians" .. Waitress " yep your right" as she walked away !!
The room Was finally changed when I said I would sleep in lounge ...the food and service in Restraunt is DIABOLICAL ..the cleaners and bar staff Excellent .. I was accommodated by my company hence I couldn't leave ... Would I return ? Never ever ever .. I would starve, and I will be reporting that this hotel does not provide vegetarian choice ...yes I ate out...

Room Tip: Look for other hotels within same area, there are choices ,!

Dear Johnboymills,

Thank you for your comments concerning your stay with us here at the Hotel . I must say I am somewhat taken aback on just how dissapointed you are with your experience here and firstly therefore apologise that we did not meet your expectations.

I do however feel a little disappointed from the headline of your review as I am confident that all staff will go that extra mile to exceed customer satisfaction throughout all departments as so many other reviews state. The Hotel does aim to provide sufficient and entising vegetarian choices ether stated on the menu or indeed encouraged to guests "off the menu" and the hotel does also cater for a wide range of dietary requirements, gluten free, celiac and diabetic guests not being least of these.

I would therefore really welcome the opportunity to discuss the matter directly with you either by contacting myself on 01723 368161 or email generalmanager@palmcourt-scarborough.co.uk

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Mr Jay Clements
General Manager

Just stayed for 2 nights Dinner, Bed & Breakfast, We had such a lovely relaxing weekend. After Checking in we were given a permit for the free car park. The restaurant was nicely decorated and had a relaxing atmosphere with every table candle lit. The food was amazing. Can't wait to stay again.

Room Tip: Room 28 is a family room on the 2nd floor with a Double bed and a Single bed. Very nice

We have stayed in this hotel numerous times over the last few years, each time you are met with friendly helpful staff who always go the extra mile. the rooms are always clean and fresh with comfortable bedding. we have always dined in the restaurant and the food and service is well above the allotted 3 stars, would always recommend as its our first choice in Scarborough.

Room Tip: worth paying the extra for an executive suite

Stayed here for three nights,staff were friendly and helpful,we were asked on arrival if it was alright if we were upgraded we said yes(of course)a bit disappointed as paper was peeling and we couldn't get the shower to run hot,we mentioned this at reception and the lady had no hesitation in giving us a choice of two rooms.After that everyone kept asking if everything was alright and were we happy with our room.We have never met such a nice and friendly staff.P.S. They are really honest about the size of the rooms,which is VERY unusual.

Having enjoyed a few nice lunches here before, I decided to bring my son and his fiancé for lunch after a shopping trip.
We were greeted by a very pleasant waitress who took our order. Coffees and cutlery arrived fairly soon. The table next to us ordered a few minutes before us and their food arrived quite quickly. Half an hour later, coffees finished, we began to wonder what had happened to our sandwiches. My son inquired and was told that the kitchen was very busy and that our food wouldn't be long. Soon after this another couple came in, placed their order and received their food. Was this some sort of a joke ? In all we sat and waited for an hour, still no food ! We got up to leave as my son had to get back to work. The waitress apologised and again said the kitchen was busy with orders, but apparently not with ours. We left feeling very disappointed and hungry !
Not likely to return !
