I booked the hotel for a weekend away in November, on the principle that if the weather outside was awful at least the facilities inside would be enough to keep us entertained and allow us to relax. The hotel was perfectly located overlooking the sea, and only a short walk from the town centre.
I assume that the prices are reflective more of the location overlooking the sea than the actually facilities, because although they were nice, because of the age of the building they were limited in size. We generally were out during the day and only used the pool and spa area towards the end of the day so it was pretty deserted but If there happens to be a couple of families or on large group of individuals you won't get a look in.
We also had an issue with a leak in our bathroom that we reported but wasn't attended to during our stay, which although wasn't the end of the world, I think is pretty poor for a hotel that sells itself as luxury.

We had a sea view room which was lovely and spotlessly clean. Staff are very polite and friendly.breakfast was ok but not a vast amount of choice. We didn't eat in the restaurant on the evening as menu was very basic but the meals I saw looked ok. The hotel is about 20-30 minutes walk to the shops/restaurants If you're looking for 5 star luxury then this isn't the place for you but for the price we paid it was fine.
The room had a sea view and was tastefully furnished. The shower cubicle was rather small but there was a large bath in a spacious bathroom, both rooms being en suite. The TV was very temperamental but OK once it tuned in, and the superb, award winning breakfast makes up for any shortcomings elsewhere, together with welcoming and obliging staff, which is a rarity these days.

Although the hotel car park has one or two small pot holes, which played havoc with my AMG , this was not to be a factor in the enjoyment of the overall stay. We had two nights there and the highlight for the hotel is the location. The stunning views across to Robin Hoods Bay at breakfast was outstanding. The breathtaking position perched on the top of the headland only served to enhance the vistas.
The staff were extremely courteous and nothing was too much trouble for them, they were polite and well spoken which these days is very important.

Set on the North Sea, this Yorkshire town is a popular English holiday destination. Scarborough offers two beaches, a fish market, and a waterfront promenade. Scarborough Castle sits on a rocky point overlooking the town. This local landmark dates back to the 12th century, and was bombed during World War I.
