Getting there but issues with staff
The Hotel rooms are being in the process of being refurbished.
Ours had been done and was really very good with an tremendous shower. The breakfast however I would say was only just above average as there was nothing special as regards fruit etc ( a dozen Strawberry yogurts but no others) and the service was not overly forthcoming as one had to ask for coffee. Also the staff did seem to be lacking in any get up and go and left tables uncleared yet nothing else to do.
One further slight hic-cup was no Saturday Times arrived as ordered - we were told no Times delivered yet there was one outside a bedroom near us. However we would stay again as this seems to be by far the best hotel in Scarborough.
Wrea Head Hotel Scarborough.
Very nice Hotel just outside the town.
Very clean and good value for money. Would recommend.
Good Stay but glad it was only 1 night
Room up with the gods.
Glorious views. Toilet not working. 'Fixed' used once and same problem.
A beautiful country house expertly refurbished.
Capable and efficient staff. Gorgeous food and quality wine, all combining to make a truly pleasant experience.
It cannot be doubted that this is a very nice place to stay.
It is away from the hussle and bussle of the city centre located very close to the centre of Scalby with easy acces to all the main roads leading North to Whitby, South to Filey and West to Pickering etc. The staff are exceptionally helpful and very pleasant all round. There were however a number of disappointments:
1. We were - rightly or wrongly - under the impression that we had a garden view...but were put into Room 20 which has no view other than the tall pitched tiled roof a couple from meters from the window completely obscuring any other view and I mean completely, not just a little bit. 2. One evening we chose to eat in and opted for the fixed price menu option at £22 (each) for two courses. We chose the main and sweet option for our two courses.
The food - although fabulous - came in quite small portions and despite having the fixed price I did not fancy the sweet options available and had to pay an additional £7 for cheese and biscuits....which having paid £260 for a two night stay and then £45 for dinner - I have to say I was a bit miffed about.
This along with not having the garden view we thought we would have, while did not spoil our stay, did leave us feeling a bit hard done too. The hotel is undergoing restoration, and where its been completed looks fabulous...there are signs of work underway, but it in no way spoils the experience....but the points above...and other details like a £10 corkage charge that is applied if you bring your own bottle of wine to the hotel for dinner...and £4-50 for a pint of larger is, given the cost of staying there and eating there, something the hotel should re-consider...that sort of thing just hacks people off.
