Or a hotel by a few mean reviews. I've just stayed at the Weston for a few days. I'm extremely fussy about hotels (see my other reviews) but I would definitely stay there again whenever I'm in Scarborough.
This hotel is in a quiet area above the Spa complex, with stunning sea views. The cliff lift is almost opposite to avoid climbing the steep hill from sea level. Car parking outside the hotel is safe and free for guests with the new system.
All the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The new owners Mr and Mrs Hendry are doing major refurbishments, but these take time if guests aren't to be inconvenienced. I loved the Jack Vettriano beach pictures around the hotel, and hope these are still there after the hotel is redecorated.
Our bedroom was large and spotlessly clean, with a new TV, new bathroom, lots of storage space and two comfortable easy chairs facing the sea. I recommend you pay extra for a front bedroom as the view is absolutely fabulous even in dull weather.
The food is mostly English, good quality, hot, tasty and plentiful and there's no pressure to buy over priced wine at dinner. The dining room service is quick and attentive. The bar is well stocked and the hotel has entertainment of some kind almost every night.
Older guests do stay at the Weston out of season, but there will be families in July and August.
I consider the cost is normal and certainly value for money. So don't believe a few unpleasant reviews and take your custom elsewhere, or you will miss an excellent hotel.
