I wish we'd have stayed longer.Posted Aug 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our first visit to the north east and it won't be our last. Runswick Bay is beautiful and the fossil hunting on the beach only added to the enjoyment. The Runswick Bay Hotel is handily placed at the top of the short, steep road leading down to the beach which will test your legs and lungs on the way back up (there's a pay and display park down the bottom too if you're not up to the test). The Hotel has a two roomed bar and a separate dining room for breakfast and for those who want restaurant dining in the evening rather than eating in the bars. The resident real ales are from the Wolds Top brewery and all three were spot on. The menu has something for everyone and all the meals we had (breakfast and evening meals) were perfect. The room we had (family room) had a double bed and bunk bed with an ensuite toilet/bath shower.The decor of the room and bathroom was slightly dated but hey, it's spotlessly clean and you're in a fantastic pub, in a beautiful place so there were no complaints from us. The room also has tea and coffee making facilities with plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits and sundries. All the staff were very attentive and couldn't be friendlier. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay and will certainly be back to the Runswick Bay Hotel. Thank you Runswick Bay Hotel.

Clean, comfortable and welcoming.Posted Jul 19, 2013
Very clean and comfortable room and bed. Staff were very welcoming and the breakfast was great. The premises are in a fantastic position to visit the bay and admire at the views - the only downside is the lack of mobile phone reception.

Redecorating but still nice.Posted Jul 18, 2013
Location: Runswick Bay is great for kids, at the foot of a very steep hill. Smallish car park with reasonable charges. One shop/cafe and a pub, & clean loos.
The hotel changed hands about 8 months ago and redecorating & upgrading work is in progress. The new owner is doing well and the beds are very comfy, bathroom's clean, dining room recently decorated and great views to the coast. Menu is a bit different to the average pub meals, good sized portions, choice of eating in the dining room, bar & outside. Breakfast choice a bit limited. The bar closes at 11pm so rooms are quiet, no pub noise to keep us awake. They were happy to accept dogs. We will go back perhaps next summer, when the upgrade is done it will be a lovely place.

great breakfastPosted Jul 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
the family room was a litle bit cramped for space. staff were very helpful in sorting out difficulties and helped us in providing breakfast early for us to get off on the road. \the breakfast was the best full english i have ever had in a hotel stay. ..worth the money just for that

Welcoming and HomelyPosted Dec 31, 2012
Pros: The Staff
Cons: The fixtures and fittings but these will be changed.
Location: Runswick Bay is a lovely village, ideal for walking. The sea is close at hand with coastal walks and the moors are nearby.
Simon has recently taken over the Hotel and is in the process of refurbishing so the decor is clean but basic. The breakfast was well cooked, coffee delicious. The orange juice ran out which was a pity. The Scampi and Haddock were perfectly cooked with proper chips when we sampled an evening meal and the tartare sauce was home made. Simon was a welcoming host and all his staff were very pleasant and helpful. The Hotel had a quiz evening while we were there which was fun. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable although a lamp didn't work.

Seen Better Days!Posted Sep 24, 2012
Pros: High ceilings in the bedroom. Location.
Cons: Awful decor in corridors and stairs.
Location: Situated alongside coastal walk to Staithes and near steps down to Runswick Bay beach. Lovely, peaceful location. (Also very near to bus-stops)
I had booked a two night stay at this hotel as a birthday present for a friend. Have to say that on arrival, I felt rather embarrassed by its condition. First impressions were of a run-down place, seriously in need of an overhaul. Its redeeming features were spacious rooms with high ceilings and sash windows (though there was a paucity of furniture and rather narrow single beds.) Our room did have a pleasant view over the countryside. The breakfast room was more acceptable and the food and service there was good. Its corridors and stairs, though, are in a poor state with miserable carpeting and old-fashioned, tacky and miserable decor. The overall experience was good in that the weather allowed us to really enjoy the glorious surroundings and eventually see the positives in our room (warm and clean). But the hotel has definitely seen better days.
