Hotel Review - The Monarch Hotel, Bridlington

Hotel Review – The Monarch Hotel, Bridlington

Bridlington is a typical English seaside town on the East Coast of the country; it has a wonderful charm and is a lovely place to stay for a bank holiday weekend. I haven't been to Bridlington since I was a kid so it was nice to go back and get re-acquainted with the place. We stopped for one night at the Monarch Hotel –It was a last minute choice and I didn't really read much up about the hotel, but it turned out to be a good selection and it made our stay that little bit more enjoyable.

The Monarch Hotel, Bridlington

Location - The Monarch Hotel is in a great location right on one of the main promenades on the south beach and is only a couple of minutes' walk from the tourist areas with all your typical seaside attractions (Arcades, Crazy Golf, Sweet shops, harbour etc). It is only a ten minute walk from the train station and is on a main road so has easy access if you're travelling by car. We couldn't have picked a better hotel for its location, an added bonus was that it wasn't right in the middle of everything either, so you only had to walk a short distance to find everything, but you didn't get all the noise and bustle of the town either.

As you can see the hotel is near the main attractions

Car Park - The only real downside to the Monarch Hotel was it's on site car park – As this is an old building, there would have been no need for a full dedicated car park at the time of its construction, so there is literally a strip down the side of the hotel with 6-7 spaces. As you can see in the photo below the parking was extremely tight and it was difficult to park without hitting another car, or one of the walls – My advice would be to just be patient and take your time if you decide to use the allotted parking.

It's a tight one!!!!

Accommodation - The room was lovely; we had a sea view, plenty of space, full tea and coffee making facilities, a large bathroom with shower/bath, several sofas & chairs, a wardrobe and a comfortable bed with good lighting. The décor could maybe have done with a spruce up, but this didn't bother me as the room was clean and well-presented and had everything we needed for our stay.

Our room for the night And we've made ourselves at home already! Good sized bathroom with bath and shower A sea view! Tea and Coffee making facilities

Breakfast - We opted for breakfast in with our room price (£76.00 p/night) and was pleased with what was provided. There was a self-service table with cereal, fruit and various juices and also a made-to-order option where you could have a full English breakfast. I had some cereal, fruit juice, coffee and white toast, while Lauren had toast, tea and a cooked breakfast. The food was all good quality and Lauren enjoyed her cooked breakfast which included sausage, bacon, beans, egg and tomato. The staff were a little flustered and I thought they looked rushed, but I think they were short staffed and we still got our orders in a short amount of time.

My simple cereals and toast, perfect!

All in all the Monarch Hotel was more than adequate for what we wanted, I thought that it was slightly overpriced by maybe £10.00, but it was a bank holiday and we did book with short notice. I would definitely stay here again though!
