      Historical Traveler Reviews The Crown Spa Hotel Scarborough

      Pretty Good - from LateRooms

      from

      We made our booking at the last minute through late rooms. It would appear that the room we stayed in (207) was kept specifically for late, cheap bookings. Room was fine - spotlessly clean and newly-decorated. Bathroom a bit dated, but again, very clean. Double bed was rather small. Room very warm, but Reception provided a fan upon request. Pool and Leisure areas all very nice, but small, so would be quite cramped at busy times. Breakfast was buffet style - average. Would recommend the Brasserie "Spice Traders" Restaurant within the hotel - they do an all you can eat buffet on certain weekdays, which we found to be good value. The hotel car park is small, but the hotels in the area provide guests with permits for on-street parking, and we didn't find a problem with parking. We were satisfied with the hotel considering it was a late booking, and the rate we paid.

      Loved the water activities

      from

      good hotel, but costly up and down the cliffs for us senior citazens, somekind of consession would be welcome, oblige mrs hancock,.

      Loved it

      from

      we stayed in february this year and it was better than we thought the food

      was excellent the staff very polite and the facilities ie the pool and the gym

      all very good the only draw back is the parking but thats not too much of a

      problem the view from the hotel is breath taking scarborough is best anyway because its in yorkshire and we are yorkshire we will go back no

      doubt about that

      Excellent and Enjoyable

      from

      I Have just had a most enjoyable stay at this Hotel.

      The food is excellent and the staff very friendly.

      The leisure was very good andit was nice tosee that Children were restricted from the sauna suites at all times. This meant that we had peace and quiet. The Pool also had children restricted times this is good in that this was the first hotel I have been to that did not have children running around and shouting all the time; well the noise was at least restricted to set times.

      Our room was very clean and warm which made up for the poor stormy weather. Definately would go again!!!

      Great Views, but...........

      from

      The view from the hotel is by far the best thing about the Crown. In the lounge you can sit and have a drink or a nice cuppa and watch the fog roll in onto the Yorkshire coast........ In other words you need fine weather to get the most out of this hotel! If it's raining and cold, it's perched up on the clifftops and can be fairly miserable, but a small whisky in the front bar will help.

      The food is very nicely presented and quite well cooked. The puddings are fab, as is the soup; but don't bother with the kippers or smoked haddock at breakfast - both were of the "boil in the bag" variety and disgusting. Poached eggs were dreadful too as they were cooked to hell in, what tasted like, vinegar.....!

      The room was spacious with a comfy big bed and the staff were, generally helpful and friendly.

      Swimming pool in the dungeon was very nicley kept, but extreemly claustophobic.

      I would go back, but in the summer......!

      Brilliant

      from

      We arrived late after walking out of a horrendous neighbouring hotel..The Grand...and were pleased to see that we could be accomodated in this clean and friendly hotel. The room was fantastic, a family room with stunning views and elegant decor. The evening meal was excellent and we felt very welcome despite having a tired two and six year old, the waiter, Paul, was exceptionally helpful. We were too late to enjoy the pool but we will return to take advantage very soon. Clean, child friendly, excellent staff, good food and a damn site better than the Grand!!!

      Good leisure facilities BUT-----

      from

      stayed half term in Feb here. the pool etc great-apart from teenage son not allowed to use the aroma rooms or the COLD jacuzzi at any time-not told this on the phone, restricted times for the pool for children.

      However the breakfast was chaos!!! to say the least-no matter what time you went( and it finishes prompt at 9.30 and cleared away!-so no time for early swim!-) they had run out of something-usually bacon and the rest-well we queued for 1 hour for brekky then got some bacon-but no mushrooms left-and where was the fried eggs????????oh no one told us you had to order those at the table! WELL that would be lucky as we had to clear a table ourselves! the second day actually orderd an egg BUT still waiting for it so third day didn't bother, As for Evening meal-unless you want to wait 4 hours from start to finish and not be able to go out-do not bother again chaos! There answer-well they knocked 5 pounds off! total stay WOW!!!!!!!! and it was because they were full!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they couldn't cope. Also no orange juice we were told till following day yet we saw some being done for some meals on a tray. DO not Bother!!!!! also eat your carrots before you go as the room was so dark-40 watt bulbs only! The dining staff never spoke let alone a smile now we do recommmend The Royal highly very good-only prob there was they didn't honour the special offer leaflet that they had sent us tho we rang right away-said all special offer rooms had goen ans suddeny 20 extra pppn. Would never go to the Chaotic Crown again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Return guarenteed

      from

      staff friendly fitness facilities excellent brilliant swimming and leisure activities food of a very good standard and choice bargains to be had on winter breaks not to be missed return assured

      Great Place

      from

      We stayed at this big impossing victorian looking hotel with our 4 year old son. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and good.

      We spoke to a couple who regularly stay at the hotel and they had the same room as the last time they stayed and it had been refurbished to a high standard. Our room was very clean and appeared new so it must be one of these newly refurbished rooms. The sea view was excellent. The leisure facilities are the best we have seen in a UK hotel for some time. Full Gym, Pool, and sauna suites. Definately will go again!

      Shabby & not so Chic

      from

      Excellent view overlooking Scarborough bays and excellent food (the evening table d'hote better much than expected and very nicely presented) but the whole place could do with refurbishing. We stayed on a cheap break so perhaps the room we had was not representative of the whole accommodation. Certainly good value for money but will ask for a room upgrade next time!

      ... didn't come off her face all day. James has obviously been one of the family for a while and it was just as lovely to see him so happy. The venue was lovely and all of their friends were great fun. After a small happy tear at home before the ceremony and then again while walking down the aisle to spiritualised 'ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space' the day was a lot of fun and laughter. Even Dad managed to avoid telling some bad jokes and again ...

      At 8.45 Jon did the usual overly long race brief and sent us out into the cold. Hard to remember how much colder it was 2 years ago in the snow. Up the road and onto the railway line, one guy broke the the code and climbed up the embankment and we followed. Nice to get a flat warm up before the steady climb to Highcliff Nab a few marshal's ensuring we went the right way. A few times I wondered if we'd get rain but it didn't come, it was also dry under foot which is ...

      A long way for lunch - but well worth it!

      Whitby is not the easiest place to get to by train however the long journey is well worth the effort, whether for a fish and chip lunch, the attractive town itself or the scenery that you can admire en-route. This was also the first time that we have arrived into Whitby by train.

      Our journey from Derby started on the 07.13 CrossCountry service to Darlington, where we then changed for a Northern service ...

      ... out a bowl of 15 mussels atop some orange sauce. Sometimes my adventurous side gets the best of me, and this would be one of those times. I think I had the right idea but it was poorly executed. I have had mussels before and liked them but these were not of the highest quality. Oh well ya live and ya learn. Then we walked around the town and got to go on top of a wall that was constructed in 300 AD around the town. On that wall, ...

      ... hard work but since then it's been OK. It was wonderful to run down it and it felt like it went on and on. I knew there were 2 dips down to sea level before the road up to the hall. 2 guys ran near me and it was nice to direct them as they didn't know the route, great to be thanked for helping out. We had a little rain but not enough to put the waterproof back on. I wasn't looking forward to that final sting up to the hall as it always seems like a long downhill ...
