The staff were lovely, as were the rooms. The only slight criticism would be when I chose the "vegetarian breakfast" - it was a regular brekfast sans meat! No quorn sausage or replacement items to cover what was missed from the usual breakfast. I believe we have come a long way with vegetarian food, long gone are the days where...

Just returned from the Headlands after a single nights stop over. Slept in Room 20. Bit of a mixed bag to be honest. Service was good until our departure, breakfast was nice. Unfortunately our bedroom wall was so thin that we were woken up to the sound of Room 21 urinating in his bathroom in the middle of the morning,...

Our first visit to Scarborough was lovely and definitely won't be our last, the Headlands hotel was equally as lovely, wonderful, very welcoming, modern decor and fantastic breakfasts, which were plentiful and well cooked. When we return to Scarborough, The Headlands will definitely be top of our list when we come to book accommodation.
