Facilities and Capacity

The Royal Hotel Scarborough, with its imposing architecture and famous staircase and atrium, bears the unmistakable hallmarks of the Regency Period. Its spacious ballroom and ceremony room can accommodate up to 120 guests, allowing you to hold both your civil ceremony and evening reception under one roof.

With a variety of well-appointed rooms with beautiful sea views, there are a few more romantic places to spend your first night as newlyweds.

Beautiful old style hotel and fabulous staff

Helen the wedding co-ordinater was fantastic and helped us throughout planning of our wedding at The Royal. No job was too small and she even put our wedding cake together on the morning of the wedding so we could have time for some fresh air! Her and her team on the day we're so helpful and made everything go smoothly to make our day so special. The ceremony room and ballroom were just beautiful and looked amazing at Christmas time. The honeymoon suite was spacious and perfect. The Royal Hotel is an old regency style hotel so does have some quirks but that's what we liked about it.

Couldn't have asked for a better day

Helen was absolutely amazing with organising our wedding, she went above and beyond to make sure the day went exactly how we planned. I don't live in Scarborough (although I was born there and my family are there, hence why we chose there) and Helen was always available whenever I needed her. The venue was out of this world and was everything we'd hoped for and more.

Helen our wedding planner was fantastic

My experience regarding, The Royal hotel; was really good Helen the wedding planner was always on call and eager to help. I can't compliment her enough for what she gave us on the day. If your looking to get married in Scarborough I would strongly advise The Royal. The only issues came from the night staff, they took the food away a little early and a lot of people hadn't had chance to eat, including myself! But this could of been dealt with I was just so busy I didn't get chance to speak with the night manager. But if you looking for the most breath-taking views with the Grand Stairwell and the Wedding room. Thank you again Helen.

Perfect from beginning to end 😁

We booked an appointment to see Helen the wedding coordinator and to have a look around the hotel. From that moment on I had a fabulous experience. Communication with Helen was spot on, nothing too much trouble. The big day itself was just perfect,the staff, the food, the ceremony, the reception. Everything went so well and exceeded our expectations thankyou Helen and team xx.

Our special day

We booked our hotel in 2021 for 30.9.23.
Throughout the last 2 years Helen from the Royal hotel was been absolutely amazing. The work Helen and the team put in for our special day was truly amazing. We choose afternoon tea and all we can say was WOW. The buffet on the evening amazing!
I cannot thank everyone at the royal enough for what they did for us!
