If you are traveling by car then you will need a car parking space and as the area is always busy you need to be prepared, you can either book a car parking space via the hotel or you can make your way to the hotel and get a street parking permit from reception, this costs nothing and parking near the hotel was fairly easy as it has to be in a designated zone.
The Hotel takes prime position on the Scarborough esplanade and is a great looking building. On entering there is a lovely bar area to your right which has a very modern contemporary feel and a lovely fireplace and the reception is on the left. The staff at reception are very professional but also friendly and helpful.
It is best to point out at this time that the hotel rooms are numbered but can be a bit hard to find as the floor plan meanders up and down stairs and it can get a bit confusing (my advice ask as reception how to get to your room, sounds odd but trust me Ask !!) we met other guests in the same situation wandering around looking for their room.
The hotel room itself could not be faulted, with perfect sea views from both the windows we stood and admired the view before getting unpacked. The room was large and the bathroom was superb, someone definitely has an eye for detail. It had a large king size bed, which was very comfortable as where the pillows. There was an iron and ironing board, hair dryer and tea and coffee-making facilities with real coffee and coffee pot ( This is a perfect addition, love real coffee rather than instant)
The taps for the bath where on the wall, so no taps to dig in your back when the two of you are having a relaxing soak. The rain forest shower head was also suspended from the ceiling over the bath so you can shower together !! gotta love that !
The bathroom accessories are a lovely touch and non of that cheap stuff.
The Spa and pool area are just fabulous and they have everything to get you fit or to distress you and allow calm to prevail. There is a gym for the fitness folk and also lots of daily fitness classes that should get any wanna be fit person, well get fit (there are no excuses here). For the sloth lot like me there is a spa, turkish bath, sauna, steam room and then the swimming pool and a jacuzzi, this is next to the pool and up some stairs sort of hidden away on its own, just wonderful. Couldn’t put a picture of the jacuzzi as it came out so badly the light was very dim, Shame!! a workman/woman always blames their tools (don’t they? )
The hotel also offers a variety of spa treatments that covers all types of treatments and sounded like a full menu and had everyone covered, from babies to adults alike.
We would most definitely go back to this hotel and we Rave about it to all our friends. Just great kudos to the Crown spa Hotel Scarborough. check it out here !!
