“Fab Easter Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We came with our friends and had a fabulous weekend at The Highlander. We received a very happy warm welcome from Karen who took us to our lovely big room with a fab sea view, big bathroom and lovely comfy bed, we had a great nights sleep. Nice breakfast. Great bar with a fab atmosphere. We had a smashing time, thanks Karen.

Room Tip: Sea view room was great

Was upgraded on arrival to a sea-view room which must have been a family room. Massive.

Bed was comfy, plenty of space to put my case (whilst only here one night I was elsewhere the rest of the week), my clothes, my work bag etc.

The en suite was also fantastic, including a bidet, which was a surpise! But it would have been nice not to have a large window right by the toilet, I felt I had to shut the curtains every time I used it.

The hotel also had some orange lights outside, not sure if they were to light up the building or whether it was street lighting, but they lit the room quite a bit even with the curtains pulled.

Overall I'd stay here again, especially at the price.

Room Tip: If you can go when it's quiet and get upgraded it's definitely worth your money!

Went to the Highlander this week for a meal. The food was excellent home cooked traditional pub food. I had a curry which was delicious and the other two people in my party had steaks as it was Steak Night. They were also very impressed and the steaks looked good!

The place is a little old fashioned but this adds to its attraction - it was a really good atmosphere and everyone was enjoying themselves.

The staff were also excellent and very helpful and the prices for food and drink are very good. I would recommend the Highlander and look forward to going again.

We went to The Highlander when visiting relatives in Scarborough so called here for Sunday lunch. It was a typical carvery but we could have a selection of meats and very good choice of vegetables. I must say this was one of the best sunday lunches i have ever had and just a shame it is so far away. Anyway would definitely recommend the food here.

On a recent trip to Scarborough our B&B hosts suggested Highlander which was close and very dog friendly. This has the front section for those with dogs and on our first night there were several in at the same time, which was fine as they were all well behaved.
The food was excellent, and my nana was very impressed with the apple crumble. It was good value for money and the people are a mixture of locals and visitors and all were very friendly.
We were just gutted that they only serve food until 3pm on a Sunday and we missed it, well worth a visit.

Went to the Highlander recently for supper. We had sausage and mash which was very good with loads of veg and tasty onion gravy. We were impressed with the staff and the efficient way they served the food and cleared the tables. Service at the bar for drinks was excellent too and a good selection of beers available. Well done Highlander. We will visit again.

Great food and hosts, thanks for the lovely welcome. The rooms were very large and comfortable. Breakfast ideal for the start of the day. Evening meals very good value and excellent quality. My sea view room was all that we could ask for.

Room Tip: Sea View great
