      Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Hotel Scarborough

      Loved room 211 fabulous view

      from

      stayed here between christmas and new year 2004. Paid extra to upgrade the room and it was well worth it the room is well co-ordinated and airy on the second floor,with a fabulous view of south bay and the harbour. The bathroom is spacious and a lovely selection of complimentary toiliteries, and a nice heated towel rail for added indulgence.

      The food was well presented and there was a nice selection on the menu, the wine may be a bit pricey 15.95 for the house wine but it was very good. The sevice in the dining room could be improved although to be fair they were very busy and it was down to a few individuals letting the service down.

      The hotel is well appointed next to the shops and easy access to the beach. Parking can be a problem as you are expected to park in the near by NCP multi storey which can make a hole in your budget.

      Overall it is a lovely traditional english hotel.

      Skimpy

      from

      holes in sheets, curtains too narrow letting in the light, dirty table linen, stained towels are just some of the joys we discovered when we stayed at The Royal last weekend

      Nice room shame about the food

      from

      very nice room very clean hotel, bar very pricey beware bottle of houe red with you meal 13.50!

      The food was not at all good - breakfast self serve - hot food was greasy and overcooked.

      lunch buffet style or hot food which looked like it belonged to a works canteen.

      The evening "Gala Dinner" was vile cheap pate, the chicken was rubbery inside and hard out side veg was so thin on the ground that it was hardly worth putting out. The lemon cheese looked nice - but as there was no choice I went without as I hate lemon.

      Superb room, excellent breakfast, warm pool

      from

      The finest hotel room I've ever had, huge, large bed, excellent bathroom, superb view, everything newly and tastefully decorated.

      The public rooms were splendidly done up and grandoise in their early Georgian restoration.

      The breakfast was excellent, with a huge choice. The pool was warm and the staff helpful (I am disabled).

      Has its faults

      from

      Stayed in March 04 Holiday cost ?398 for 3days so not cheap. Reception area very small, crowded when booking in. Dirty saucer & spoon in room, reported it and took 1hr 45mins to return. Second day returned to room after walk at 12.45 and room not been cleaned or replenished so no drinks. To cap it all the car had to be parked in NCP car park well away from hotel and cost ?5 a day on top of holiday, you had to make sure you brought eveything into the hotel out of the car.

      Good BUT

      from

      GOOd hotel good foodwell organised breakfasts-not like the awful Crown !But they did not honour their special offer leaflet that they send to tempt you-you ring then suddeny it had gone up ?20 PPPN not on! so BEWARE!

      Excellent rooms

      from

      Very comfortable room, clean and well furnished. Leisure Centre very small and the pool was cold. Only stayed B&b so cannot comment on dinner, but Breakfast was good. Excellent location for the centre of Scarborough. we dined at the nearby Fish Cafe, which was excellent. The other reviews on this site, had me worried but it was a good medium class hotel. the room we had was very quiet and well appointed.

      Halfwits led by halfwits

      from

      My Wife and I spent the weekend of 24th and 25th October at the Royal Hotel in Scarborough for her birthday. Although the web site claims that the room refurbishment programme is now complete, the corridors approaching the rooms were far from complete. The porter who showed us to our room failed to show us even how to turn the lights on, which resulted in a phone call ro reception in the dark.On the Saturday night there was a wedding party in the main dining room, so hotel guests had to dine in 'The Cavalier Suite' in the basement. This turned out to be the last word in poor service, with guests having to wait up to 45 minutes just to order their food, while listening to a third rate rock band murder songs by The Carpenters. A waiter arrived with our bottle of wine but no glasses to drink it from, which then took another 15 minutes to appear. The final insult came when ordering our coffee in the lounge. Having waited 30 minutes for this, I was told we would be charged 4.50 for the pleasure. This was a memorable birthday for my wife for all the wrong reasons. Don't go there.

      Not as good as they would like to think they are

      from

      Paid high price to have new refurbished room. Arrived at hotel to find a wedding had booked the dining room and louge for the Saturday night.

      We were relegated to a dismal room at back of hotel for dinner. They can not expect to treat customers like this and have them return. Not enough staff either. Impossible to get drinks when at dinner, had to go through and buy them from the bar and bring them through.

      Ask first

      from

      A historic and interesting hotel which is being refurbished after decades of neglect. When booking ensure you are in a renovated room, or else....

      ... Whitby into a Horror Novel. We eventually hooked up with the Clan, Father had rented a modern cottage which overlooked the Viaduct above Whitby. Brother Dill & myself took a quick drive into a dark Whitby to stock up on essentials....booze, just in case you're wondering. Whitby looked interesting at night but we'd have to wait until Friday to take a better look at it.

      Everything is now set to go. Just charging this ipad for the airport check. Sadly, we have to say goodbye to Katie Moragh. She is suspicious as there is a suitcase in the hall and her food and other "doggy" essentials are in the basket at the foot of the stairs ready for her to go to become an Honorary Pitman. Raggy the Airedale and KM will be pals tomorrow. We leave home at 7a.m. so early brekkie and off to the station and Manchester ...

      North York Moors Visitor Centre

      A travel blog entry by ryan.kaiser on Oct 03, 2014

      Today we all went to the North York Moors visitor centre. I played on the little kiddy climbing wall and the cross word puzzle with Isabella, then I played with William at the little kiddy playground on the spiny metal based tyre, then we went on a little bird watching and fake fairy houses walk. Isabella loved the little fake fairy houses and bird watching walk. I had a go on the spiny tyre standing up after William was sitting down on it, I fell off and landed face first, it ...

      Failed fossil hunting

      A travel blog entry by ryan.kaiser on Oct 01, 2014

      Today we went to Robin Hoods bay and walked along the beach looking for. Fossils but didn't find any. Then we went and had lunch , then went back to the beach to have another look. But we didn't find anything in that part of the bay either. We looked in rock pools and found hermit crabs. Then I built a sandcastle with Isabella, who is only 3. Then mum went to Sainsburys, which is a supermarket, whilst I finished nano virus on plague ...
