Reviewed 16 January 2014

Stayed here with my partner this January. The hotel has a family feel to it, staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed in a sea view room which had lovely views over Bridlington Bay and Flamborough Head. Some of the hotel is in the process of redecoration but I would imagine that this is an on going process as this is a large hotel. We are hoping to return again with family members this summer to take advantage of the closeness of the beach and other attractions.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled as a couple

We are so pleased that your stay was all you expected and look forward to welcoming youi again to the Expanse.
We have now completed remodelling of 7 bathrooms, six of which have been extended to take both walk-in shower and full bath and redecorating and recarpeting a landing. We try to keep improving the Expanse.

Typical between-the-wars seaside hotel which is really the only one of its type in town.Has good range of facilities ,,,,bar with bar meals,restaurant,lounges etc.,,,,none of which are outstanding but all are functional. Rooms can be quite small

Room Tip: Sea view.No pool or fitness centre

We have been doing a lot of refurbishment this year. We have rebuilt 8 bathrooms this winter, 7 of which have been extended to provide wall-in showers as well as full baths. Hopefully when you next visit you will see an improvement.

Ok night for a Buisness trip. Reasonable sized room, clean and welcoming. decor a bit dated but renovation ongoing. Nothing special at the moment but I suspect will be a lot better after refurb. Restaurant was disappointing for diner but good for breakfast.
Great location and sea view right on the seafront. Parking ok and easy right outside but I was there in the winter.

Room Tip: Get one of the refurbished rooms

Sorry you found your room dated. As you noted we are doing a lot of refurbishment this year. We have rebuilt 8 bathrooms this winter, 7 of which have been extended to provide wall-in showers as well as full baths. Shorty the first floor corridor will be completed, it has been re-decorated, but the carpet will finally arrive next month. But like the Forth Bridge, the job never ends. Hopefully when you next visit you will see a marked improvement.

Shower didn't work ie was cold and there was no offer of compensation. Far too expensive for what it is but nice staff and good location. Won't go back due to price and the fact that it isn't as good as it thinks it is. Not much competition so thats probably how it survives

Me, my partner and our family stay at The Expanse every year. We are always greeted with pleasant, helpful, friendly staff. The rooms are excellent ant fairly priced and the evening meals are beautiful. I have recommended this hotel to my friends and other family members some who have also been and found it to be a lovely place to stay.

Just back from a 2 night stay at the Expanse Hotel, Bridlington. Friendly staff, more than adequate rooms. Had a lovely sea view with balcony, was spoilt with lovely winter sunshine. Breakfast was superb, served hot and fresh. Will definitely be staying again.

We have just returned from a fabulous four nights at The Expanse staying in their self catering apartment called The Lookout Post. The apartment is well equipped and beautifully furnished and has marvelous sea views from the the lounge and the bedroom. The large bed is very comfortable and the apartment was nice and warm which is always welcome in winter. We liked it so much that we wanted to live there permanently!
