I chose this hotel for its location, near the Spa lift and with sea views. Entering the hotel you are stepping back in time, the reception staff were efficient and the allocated room as expected. On the first night we chose to eat in the restaurant, not a good idea. The hotel appears to be geared up to cater for...

Stayed at this hotel again for an overnight stay. Just as good as before, in fact, even better - the rooms have been refurbished to a high standard with good comfy beds. Shower, however, could do to be a bit stronger !. The staff, particularly Reception, are so friendly and helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast is excellent, with...

I attended a Dinner Dance for the RNLI yesterday evening. The food was very good, and quickly and efficiently served. The staff were very friendly and pleasant. A very comfortable hotel. There is ample parking outside the hotel and it is within easy walking distance of the beautiful Esplanade. The town of Scarborough and the seafront are also within walking...

Food excellent. Staff are so friendly. At night so quiet enabling peaceful sleep. Just across the road is the cliff lift to give easy access to the beach and spa theatre Entertainment in the hotel was first class, so much better than other hotel entertainment I have experienced. Overall a great place to stay

This is our 5th visit to The Red Lea, as on all of the other occassions everything is just about as good as it gets. Even if we tried we couldn't find any fault, so thanks again from the residents of 113.

Room 318, 3rd floor with a sea view. But not the usual boring straight out to sea sort of view.
