It is unfortunate that the other guests had gone to bed so early on the night you stayed so that when you came back down the bar had shut. Thank you for your...

My husband and I have just returned from a Shearings long weekend at the Norbreck Hotel. The hotel stands in a very commanding position with beautiful views over the North Bay.

Booked with National Express for a long weekend in November, couldn't fault the hotel at all, food was excellent, our room was compact and spotless, nice and warm, comfortable bed. We found the entertainment was first class too but the bar prices were very pricey, £3.70 for a pint of beer and £4 for a glass of wine, much cheaper...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Standing on the headland, near Scarborough's ancient castle ruins, the Norbreck is the only hotel in town which looks out over both the North and South Bays, with breathtaking panoramic sea view. From this peaceful location you can rest in the convivial atmosphere of the bar lounge or in the comfort of the restaurant and savour the scenic sights of golden sands and ocean waters. In the hub of the town itself, lying just ten minutes' away, there is an array of shops and holiday attractions. While a day trip takes you to York or to see the moors, to test your nerves at Flamingo Land or to revisit 'Brideshead' at Castle Howard. There's such a lot to see and do in the area! The hotel does not have a car park. However street parking is available nearby. ... more   less
