“Christmas break”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

My husband and I would like to thank everyone for a wonderful Christmas holiday at the Weston hotel. This was our second visit to the hotel but our first Christmas away, and everyone makes you so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent food and service, the Christmas package was outstanding. It was lovely to meet so many lovely people, guests and staff. We will be back there in 2014. Good luck and keep up the good work.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

I have just returned from a 3 day Christmas Break at the Weston with my husband, my parents and my mother in law, and we all had a wonderful relaxing time. The staff are very friendly and helpful as are the owners of the hotel, nothing was too much trouble and there were some lovely little festive treats. The food was plentiful and delicious, well done to the chefs for their hard work over the Christmas period. One of our rooms had been refurbished to a high standard, and the other 2 rooms were a little tired but comfortable still, with fabulous views of the south bay. The guests were mainly senior citizens and the entertainment was excellent for the age group, a funny comedian who sang well and a former member of the Tornados who sang great rock and roll songs from the 50s and 60s. Lots of board games were available in the comfortable lounge. Thanks to The Weston for an excellent Christmas.

We have just enjoyed a wonderful Christmas three night break at the Weston. Our room No. 26 although small & rear facing with a view to Olivers Mount was warm, very comfortable & refurbished to a very high standard. Only a shower but no bath was no problem for us.
Management & Staff were superb, genuinely friendly making the whole stay that much more personal. Comfortable & inviting lounge & bar which we understand will be refurbished in the next couple of months. Lovely dining room with wonderful views and very good quality & plentiful food with lots of thoughtful little extras. We had a marvellous Xmas, in pleasant company & warm & comfortable surroundings...Many thanks to all at The Weston, we look forward to our next visit.

Another warm, friendly stay at this family owned hotel.
Everything we need for a comfortable break on hand here.
Looking forward to next year already.
Good luck with the upgrade to the reception and bar in the New Year..

We decided to spend a few days in Scarborough and Whitby for our first wedding anniversary. Having never stayed in Scarborough, the reviews of this Hotel made the accommodation choice so much easier. After a 3 night stay, we cannot believe this Hotel is only a 2 Star rating, as we could not have chosen a better place. Warm and friendly service, lovely selection of food (especially at breakfast!), nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Our room was slightly basic and had not been refurbished, however the comfortable bed and the sea view certainly made up for it. The fact that our room (12) was also situated next to the lift did not affect our stay. We were able to park on the road outside the Hotel (free with ticket from hotel reception) and it was just a 20 minute walk into town to enjoy the many shops, cafes, restaurants and amusement arcades. Thanks to Hugh and staff for a warm and wonderful stay. We hope to return again soon and will definitely be recommending this hidden gem to family and friends.

We had an Autumn Break here during school October holidays. Perhaps not the most ideal hotel for active children, as most of the other residents were elderly.
The rooms were very clean & comfortable with en-suites. The Staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
For Meat Eaters, the food was excellent, with lots of choices for Breakfast and the 3 Course Dinner.
However, the "choice" for Vegetarians was restricted to only ONE dish from the Dinner Main Course and NO vegetarian bacon or sausage etc at breakfast! We feel that is not really a "choice" at all, since everyone is paying the same rate to have meals provided.
One of the dishes was not particularly enjoyable - mainly Lentils & Vegs in a rather sour tomato sauce. Being the only Veggie dish on offer, it had to be forced down or have nothing to eat that evening!. Perhaps the chef could bear in mind that even 'non-vegetarians' do like a choice of vegetarian dishes too and extend his menu to include a true "choice" for everyone.
Despite this disappointment, we did enjoy the break and would certainly recommend the Weston to others - unless they are Vegetarians of course!

Dear GoldenGran many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the wider TripAdvisor community and we thank you for your praise. As a 2 star hotel and given the feedback from other reviewers we are proud of our food offering for all dietary and personal preference requirements; however we do respect and value the estimation of all our guests. We have been reluctant to considered sourcing vegetarian sausage or bacon products and are likely to continue to do so in the future. Our full service breakfast menu does carry an excellent choice and our daily freshly prepared vegetarian dish is popular with vegetarian and non vegetarian diners alike. Once again thank you for your feedback and commendation.
Kind Regards

I recently booked a 5 night break at the Weston hotel for my husband & myself. the hotel came highly recommended, & we were not disappointed. the rooms were spacious & clean, with a wonderful view over the bay & beyond. The food was absolutely amazing & very well presented. Staff were extremely professional & nothing was too much for them. Having had the shock of our lives when unexpectedly, family had secretly booked into this hotel giving us a most wonderful surprise, we together enjoyed this break like no other. Thank you Hugh & all at the Weston Hotel for making our stay so perfect. you deserve an extra 2 stars for the food quality alone.
from a very happy couple,
Linda & David Smith

Room Tip: front sea view rooms are the best, but all the rooms we saw were good
