In June we picked the 'Alexander' out of the Scarborough hotels' book: it was a purely random choice. And how lucky we were! So lucky, in fact, that within a week of our departure we booked a return visit!
We were pleased to be able to have the same room as before. It is spacious and was spotlessly clean - and this leads us to putting in a word for those responsible for its daily attention. They do a faultless job.
No sooner had we arrived than we were - on both visits - welcomed with coffee and biscuits - a lovely touch.
The breakfast offers a wide range of items from which to choose; and whatever you select is excellently prepared and served promptly
Prior to our first trip, we had asked about the quickest way to the promenade. It is via a secluded path that goes down to the Open Air Theatre in Northstead Manor Gardens and then alongside the Minature Railway track. And before you know where you are, you are breathing in the bracing air on the sea front.
We had gone to Scarborough on both occasions for the Spa Orchestra performance in Peasholm Park - and how convenient is the hotel for the Park and, indeed, for all the amenities on the Norh side of the resort.
To depart for home was to leave you thinking, 'I hope it won't be long before we're back!'
