Close to centre of Scarborough and all the attractions. Some nice walks and very close to the beach. Room small, but we knew that before booking, so no surprises. Food very nice and the staff were warm and welcoming. A few doors away is a tex mex restaurant which was very nice. All in all had a good time, not... More

Called to the Highlander several times during our weekend break. Very friendly/accommodating staff. Lovely beer garden (and more importantly, dog-friendly!). We went at various times and the hotel always seemed busy with people coming and going (which is obviously a good sign that the place isn't too shabby). I can't comment on the food, but there seemed to be plenty... More

A brilliant night out. Food well presented and good standard of home cooking. Friendly atmosphere with good staff and service. A definite good night out not to be missed if visiting Scarborough. Sunday lunch to die for. Try the best cooking in Scarborough. .

Comparing my experience with other reviews I wonder what standards people have - how can anybody give this establishment any stars? The building is not only down at heel, it's falling to bits and dirty to boot. The Barmaid was cheerful enough but service was absent - we had to pour our own drinks from the bottle. We chose food...

Just back from a few days staying here. I was in the Singleton room. It's at the back so no view of the sea, but that did not matter at all. The room was a fine size with plenty of room. TV, tea stuff, en suite with comfy seat. Breakfast was really good and you could choose to mix n... More

I'm just back from a few days in Scarborough. I stayed at The Highlander Hotel on the Esplanade. I enjoyed my stay at The Highlander very much. My room was comfy and clean. The service was very friendly. Nice breakfasts and good food in the bar.

Friday evening in the bar was steak night, two rump steaks and a bottle of house wine for two was £22. Well what can I say, bar... More

We use as our local when we are in Scarborough. There is a good range of traditional beer always available and if you like wine then there are a good range of single serve bottles available. The staff are really welcoming and serve you quickly and there are a large number of regulars who are also friendly and welcoming.
