Bob and Ellen Lovett, we have just retuned from our 3rd holiday this year at The Weston, this time we took our 10year old granddaughter . What more can be said about this hotel We have had a sea view room every time, the beds are very comfortable, the rooms spotlessly clean, the food is excellent , all the staff are very friendly, nothing is too much trouble, our granddaughter can't stop talking about it . The day after we returned home we booked to take her with us again. I am not usually a drinking man but the Tetlys goes down a treat.

My son and I shared a second floor sea-view room at the Weston for two nights. We were really impressed bythe standard of service and quality of food for the price we paid. I had salmon one night and cod the next. Both pieces of fish were beautifully cooked and a generous portion. The staff team's support with my lactose intolerance was brilliant. But best of all was the friendly yet calm welcome from all staff. I have been recently despairing that in all of life's transactions -from the NHS to cocktail bars- staff are more interested in chatting to their colleagues and getting off as early as possible. Not at the Weston. Everyone seemed to be keen to ensure we had everything we needed and that we were having a good time. Definitely recommend to everyone. The refurbishment plans sound interesting, but the existing hotel is a delightful offer for all those tired of the fake bling offered elsewhere.

We have just arrived home after 11 days at the best hotel in Scarborough. This was our 4th visit to the Weston and, having visited this lovely town about 30 times and having stayed in 9 different hotels, this is comfortably the best hotel in Scarborough we think (and many others agree). It is well worth driving 251 miles to stay there.
We rate the Weston excellent in all areas. The position of the hotel is perfect. It is on the esplanade and gives you beautiful views of the sea and South Cliff Gardens whether you view the sea from the lounge or dining room or bar or a bedroom or the garden. The view of the South Bay, harbour and castle is outstanding, even on a wet day. The hotel even has a nice touch of several benches outside where you can sit and take in the nice views and the sea air. It is noticeable that residents display a very happy disposition as they sit outside. Opposite the hotel is the lift to the Spa theatre and car parking is easy outside the hotel. It is a lovely area all round.
Inside the hotel it is excellent too. It is very well managed by Pat, Tom, Hugh and John who make a special effort to make you feel welcome and who do all they can to make your stay a very pleasant one - and in this they do indeed succeed ! In the kitchen the 2 "Toms" produce lovely meals and could comfortably find positions in a top rated restaurant. The food is so tender and tasty and there is a wide and diverse choice on the menu each day. Also, we have never seen such a wide choice on the breakfast menu in any hotel we have visited. Special dietary requirements are no problem whatsoever in this hotel, as we know. The staff in the dining room are excellent and well trained too. They do all they can to please the visitors in a pleasant and efficient way. Hugh does an excellent job in leading the dining room staff in his extremely pleasant, helpful and efficient way. This creates a very relaxed atmosphere.
The rooms are of a high standard too and there is an ongoing programme of refurbishment. The front rooms have excellent sea views and the back rooms have pleasant rural views. There is the extra facility of a lift. The bedroom staff do a very good job too.
The Weston has so many repeat bookings and this says a great deal about this hotel. We will be back again too. Many see it as the "No. 1 hotel in Scarborough" with its central position within the town itself and its beautiful views which contribute to your holiday. The hotel ratings show that many other people rate the Weston as excellent too. The town of Scarborough is a beautiful choice for a holiday and this choice of hotel will complete an excellent holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms are well situated but the front rooms have outstanding views.

We have just returned from a short break in Scarborough. It was our first stay at the Weston and it certainly won't be our last!
The staff were friendly and welcoming, the bed linen spotless and the food was excellent.
We have previously stayed in several Scarborough Hotels and we will certainly be saying in this "little gem" in the future.

Four couples just returned from a great weekend away at the Weston. A very warm welcome from all the staff. Most of us had refurbished rooms which were all very nice. One couple had a sea view and whilst the room was not classed as refurbished it was lovely with a fabulous view and a new bathroom. The choice of food at both breakfast and dinner was surprising for the price we paid. No complaints from anyone and all the plates emptied! The location of the hotel is great, in a really nice part of the town with lovely walks into the busier areas of Scarborough. We dumped the cars and made use of the parking permits issued by the hotel.
Great weekend at a great hotel, would definately recommend it.

Last minute change to our original accommodation found us with no place to stay for the weekend at 6.30pm. After scouring the Internet we were still homeless until we entered The Weston Hotel. Luckily they had a room for two nights so we snapped it up. Have to say the welcome is superb , warm friendly remembering your name for breakfast fantastic customer service. The location of the hotel is directly facing the seafront and is only a stone throw from the Cliff Lift taking you down to the seafront. We had a modern refurb room at the rear of the hotel. The room itself size wise was ample with the bathroom although very nice again being compact. Like any hotel there is room for improvement , the decor in places needs a freshen up and the interior doesn't come across as appealing. We also had breakfast twice during our stay which was very nice. Overall we felt the asking price for the room was a little over what we thought it was worth but it is high season and we needed somewhere to stay as everywhere seemed to be fully booked. Positives are location, excellent friendly staff, clean modern room and really nice breakfast. Just to add the hotel also provides free parking permits although we never used this service as we travelled by train.
