Loved room 211 fabulous view
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.
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
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
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
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 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!
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
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
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.
A historic and interesting hotel which is being refurbished after decades of neglect. When booking ensure you are in a renovated room, or else....

... Hoods Bay. He gave me a slab of Christmas cake with loads of icing on to keep me going.
This next section was new to me as usually we are at the village Hall instead of still on the Cleveland way by the Hotel. We headed down the road rather than the coastal section towards the train station which I'd not seen before. Up the steps to the platform and down onto the Cinder Track. Down hill!! Great feeling but again I felt I was being overtaken. I felt good but ...
Started of the day at the local gym with Jo. Then back home for a nice breakfast. Off to Bridlington for the afternoon to see John & Trish. Had s nice lunch at Rags. It was very nice overlooking the harbour just down from the wedding venue. After lunch we went for a walk thru the old town where they have just finished filming the Dad's Army movie. Back home for some takeaway Thai then a early night ready for New ...
We set off early to get to Bridlington with the assistance of Sally Sat Nav who took us through about 100 small towns with advertisements for fish and chips and seemingly nothing else (I was asleep most of the way though so don't take my word for it). Bridlington is a small coastal town the has a simple, quiet charm. We walked along the beach and watched the boats being prepared to go out. There were lots of people walking dogs ...
... in Filey after a one night stopover at a lovely little historical pub called "ye olde mustard pot".Our stay in Filey was two weeks in a newish apartment overlooking a coffee shop, pharmacy and a Pub. Having decided to treat ourselves to a pub meal, we sauntered 30 seconds across the road and settled at a table. Ordering drinks, I commented that the menu mentioned that the Chicken Jalfrezi suggested you could have it on rice or chips? Yes said the unblinking barlady, a ...
... of a Hardmoors event.
9.12 we set off, the half was meant to be 9.15 and the 10k 9.30! Jon is thinking about maybe and hour in between to reduce the chaos in the hall for the next race.
It was dry until about midday. I was pleased I remembered so much of the run from last year. Along the stream it got tricky at times as people were anxious about slippy and tried not to get wet feet as the went over the waterfall. I have ...
