We loved being here but the property does need a little TLC. The staff were lovely but we couldn’t manage a morning paper though trying twice. The views were absolutely stunning and throughout, our room was very clean.

The location and sea views are excellent. Very convenient for town centre, beach and coastal walks. Friendly and helpful staff. Communal areas and restaurant are well furnished and decorated. Bedrooms are in need of updating and redecorating but are a good size. En- suites are modern and are a good size.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The overall impression of the property is that its tired and in need of some serious attention. The wooden window frames in our room were rotten and a previous guest had kindly stopped the drafts with tissue paper.

Thank you for leaving us such a good review. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the views and our accessibility to the seafront. The quality of the view at the Esplanade is one of the best in Scarborough and we're glad you got to enjoy that. Should you choose to return to Scarborough for another we visit we hope you would stay with us again.
