Wonderfully welcoming staff on our two night break. Last orders for dinner is 7.30pm but as we were late setting off, our predicted arrival time was just after 8pm. When I rang to inform them the friendly receptionist read out the menu and organised for a main course and dessert to be kept warm for us. Unfortunately the cot that we had requested was not in the room but the next evening when I mentioned it the staff were extremely apologetic and sorted the problem despite housekeeping having already left for the day. The menu changed daily and was to a good standard and quickly served for such a busy hotel. As soon as we checked in we were given a free parking permit which meant we could leave our car the entire weekend without worry.The old style lift is quaint and rather exciting for my two year old daughter and she enjoyed the small hotel pool (towels available for free at reception) although it could be a little cramped if any other were using it however this is unlikely when it is open 24 hours. Reception was ready to give advice on how to get to the places we had planned to go and gave some good advice on other places that we may be interested in.
The hotel is situated on the cliff above the Spa in Scarborough and we had a wonderful view of the sea and coastline from our bay window. There is a tram that descends the cliff directly opposite the hotel and leads to the sea front bus stop that will take you all along the south and north bay and through the town. It was a wonderfully welcoming hotel giving easy access to Scarborough's attractions whilst remaining secluded and charming.
