The booking in process was quick and the member of staff absolutely lovely and friendly. We were given room 202 and were really...

Had a lovely stay. Staff friendly, room comfortable, wet room excellent and great breakfast choice. Lovely location too with great views. Lift is slow but not a deal breaker! Would stay here again if I return to Scarborough.

Hi, This hotel in Scarborough is stunning in decor, food and the many facilities that it offers all the guests who choose to stay at The Ambassador but the biggest letdown for us was the 'deal' that we had signed up for with a search website. Our room was a deluxe double room reduced to an lower price deal but...

I booked this hotel on the premise that if it's a hotel it would be better quality, better service and with better facilities. I accepted that it would cost more than a B&B because of the above...... how wrong I was! Check in was unusual as there is just a desk in the bar area. I had to ask for...

We have stayed at this hotel many times times and always enjoyed it. This year we got a shock, the reception had moved into the bar and the lounge was nothing like it used to be. We asked if we could book a table for the evening meal and was told that they no longer did evening meals. The whole...

Super view of bay from 2nd floor room however this did not justify the £179.00 price for one night in what was described as a "premier deluxe" double room which only had limited and dated facilities.
