Positive Reviews


Really handy location

If you're looking to base yourself in the South Cliff area of Scarborough then this hotel will no doubt suit your needs perfectly. As well as being close to both the train station and the town centre, this hotel is also within very easy reach of the grand Spa complex and the beach via the cliff lift.


Some accommodations provide attractive views

If you're someone who enjoys a view then opt for one of the guest rooms on the north side of the hotel: numerous guests have said the views from across the resort from here are just lovely!


Staff members are extremely friendly and polite

The majority of guests have remarked upon the excellent levels of service and highly personable approach of the team working here. The bubbly receptionists and exceedingly efficient waiting staff earned the highest plaudits.

Negative Reviews


No in-room Wi-Fi

In keeping with the general theme of being just a teeny-tiny bit stuck in the past, this hotel has yet to embrace a Wi-Fi system which is capable of being accessed in all accommodations. If you want to get online here then you'll have to log-on in one of the public areas.


Hotel is set on a rather steep hill

Because this hotel is located on steep hill, many guests have found walking back to the property from nearby sights and attractions somewhat of a challenge.


Lift isn't the best

Visitors have noted that the lift here isn't particularly swift or very large (it holds four people max).
