Me and my family stayed overnight as a birthday treat for my big 50 at the Headlands Hotel. The hotel was excellent, the room was lovely and comfortable. Dave & Gill were very friendly. The breakfast was great one of the best. Would highly recommend this hotel when stopping in Scarborough. Tim & Kerry.

The staff were lovely, as were the rooms. The only slight criticism would be when I chose the "vegetarian breakfast" - it was a regular brekfast sans meat! No quorn sausage or replacement items to cover what was missed from the usual breakfast. I believe we have come a long way with vegetarian food, long gone are the days where... More
