My wife & I visit Scarborough & the surrounding area annually & found hotel accommodation including an evening meal no problem to some 5 years back when like a mexican wave they decided in the majority to just offer B&B accommodation. There are eating places in Scarborough but not to the extent they make out & after being out for the day it isn't pleasurable walking round trying to find somewhere. So for a couple of years we left Scarborough alone but then decided to go through the Hotel's available to see if anyone was still offering an evening meal & we found this Hotel at a then very reasonable rate. This Hotel has obviously become very popular as a result & when I phoned in May to find out the Autumn/Winter rate there was just one double sea view room available at the price this year of £129 per person so we duly booked. Though still good value this was an increase of £50 on last years price taking into account a bottle of wine not being included now on the first night & the receptionist stated in the call that they had become very popular. As this is just an extra holiday to us a visit next year will be determined by the price then. The Hotel is going through a steady progression of upgrade & we found the work still continuing from last year. Our room (19) had had the en-suite upgraded though the bedroom was a work in progress & with only having 2 electric sockets already serving the TV & kettle provided it was a case of swapping plugs through the week's stay & with the new light fixture/shaver socket in the bathroom awaiting replacement my electric shaver as well as the hair dryer, mobile phone charger etc had to be served by these as well. The view from our room was definitely a sea view & the full panorama of Scarborough's bay could be clearly seen & the town is easily within walking distance. The room just had a shower & this was definitely small bijou & with the controls being something out of the star ship Enterprise I was concerned of the water being to hot as there was no room to stand back. The bed was comfortable though the pillows were too hard for my liking but all in all a comfortable room for our weeks (4 night) stay. The food is always well presented & very well served & a good choice of menu is served throughout the week though the sweets menu remains the same there is a good choice to have a different sweet each night. Tea or coffee & mints is also served after the evening meal. A good choice of breakfast items are also offered. One thing that was found when the weather turned very windy towards the end of the week is how draughty sash windows can be & seating in the restaurant & the bar area was found to be very cold as a result, this was also the case in the bedroom. The staff throughout all areas are always friendly & helpful. Parking outside the Hotel is freely available for your stay by a permit being displayed given by the Hotel's. All in all a very good friendly stay is due when staying at this Hotel & we hopefully look forward to returning to it next year.
