Ambassador Hotel
Ranked #22 of 26 Hotels in Scarborough
Reviewed 22 November 2013

We have had some real difficulties in recent years trying to find decent accommodation in Scarborough but have now solved the problem!
The hotel is comfortable, roadside parking is available and staff are welcoming. It's good value for money with a substantial breakfast for guests.
We did not use the spa facilities but will use the hotel again.

Just a quick one night break, but overall very impressed. Lovely clean, comfortable room, with super views over the town and bay. Very friendly helpful staff and a very enjoyable breakfast in the morning with lots of choice. The hotel is conveniently situated on Scarborough's south cliff and is within easy walking distance of the town and beach. I would certainly stay again and would recommend .

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel have beautiful views of the sea and town.

Lovely afternoon staff very attentive and the spa treatment was a "treat". Afternoon tea was delicious and served by friendly helpful staff. All in all a lovely visit with excellent sea views watching boats sailing on the sea and a bright pleasant November day

Stayed here with a friend after booking a mud rasul treatment via Groupon. The images used on groupon were quite misleading and made the pool area look a lot larger than it actually is. The hot tub is built into the pool and is impossible to sit down in (I'm average height and the water level covered my mouth), the jets also pushed me away from the side. Pool area isn't relaxing as passersby gawp through the windows.

The reception staff offered a generous discount on our bar tab after not receiving part of our offer nor fixing the television.

Very friendly attentive staff, excellent service and care. Food is amazing and very good value. Rooms are comfortable and fairly spacious and if you are in a sea facing room the views are beautiful.
Hotel is within walking distance of the town centre but there is a bus service that runs fairly near if you can't manage the walk back up the hill!!
Very close to the Spa Theatre and the sea front, also the lovely Italian gardens nearby.
The evening entertainment provided was extremely good.

Havin checked in to find the beds in the twin room with no gap inbetween and nowhere to move them to,we complained. explained we are work colleagues and not THAT close.we were then moved to the only room available which was a huge family room- 2 bedrooms,dining area.3 king size beds,so obviously very happy.explored the roof top sauna and roof top Zen garden ready for the next evening after work.
Unfortunately we were then moved to another hotel the next day...due to our other colleagues twin rooms situation.
I for one was sad to leave.friendly hotel staff.hotel very clean,breakfast was slow,however they had offered to open up early for our group. Parking restrictions are 9am-6pm,as on road parking.so if you are only in the hotel at night parking not an issue.
