Offering some of the most amazing, uninterrupted sea views that Scarborough has to offer and situated just a short distance from many of the town’s attractions, this budget Scarborough hotel makes the perfect base when visiting the Yorkshire Coast.

Renowned its warm Yorkshire welcome, The Clifton Hotel Scarborough boasts many return guests. The hotel offers a wide range of accommodation types, in both traditional and contemporary styles and a restaurant renowned for good quality food.

The Clifton Hotel Scarborough has 70 bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, direct dial telephone, television and welcome refreshment tray. Many rooms also have spectacular sea views, so you can enjoy watching the local surfers and fisherman in the North Bay from the comfort of your room.

At the end of a perfect day where better to relax and watch the world go by, than in the hotel lounge or ‘Tykes Bar’ – where you can enjoy your favourite tipple whilst watching our large screen TV’s.
