Seaside & Rather Interesting People

... tasted ok but gave me a huge tummy ache and I had to spend the rest of the evening laid out on my bed. The people of Scarborough wore rather strange outfits. It was quite chilly but many of them wore clothes we'd probably only wear to the beach! Brrrrrrrrr!!!!!! I was certainly not going to follow the trend. While we were there we went for an amazing drive through the Yorkshire Moors and visited the places you can see on the ...

... they'd take your hand off.

First up was a swim in the ocean. Girls were told they needed to go for a swim in England, so off they went. We only had one towel so it was first in and first out if you wanted the dry towel. Unsure if the order of who came out of the water was the order of intelligence but the order was Eryn first, then Rachel, lastly Isabel. All 3 said that ...

In circa 43AD, the Romans came from overseas......

Said goodbye to Peter and the Salisbury House B&B after yet another beautiful breakfast followed by a special treat after breakfast. We all had fruit nougat. Car was packed and we were on our way again. Headed east towards Hadrian's Wall and a day back in the Roman Age. Stopped at the tourist information and got all the maps and info we needed then took the road that ran parallel to the wall. The first stop was Vinderlanda, the Roman Fort that they are ...

Day of nothing

Slept in a bit this morning and took things a bit slower. Bruce and I went for a walk to the local shops and wandered around the beach. We took the water pumped train down to the beach, not many of these trains are still around, was quite interesting. We took it easy for the rest of the day, and then packed our bags ready for an early start the next ...

The Curiosities of Whitby

... journeys without the navigational aids and maps that we have today. It was also amazing to see the original documents relating to Cook's apprenticeship, letters to and from him and illustrations painted by his fellow travellers during those voyages.






But you don't have to be in museums to see interesting and quirky things in Whitby.

    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....
