With inspirational sea views across the North Sea and Scarborough’s magnificent castle headland, it’s easy to see how First World War poet Wilfred Owen was inspired to write some of his most famous works at the hotel.In late 1917 Owen was posted to a reserve battalion, based at The Clifton Hotel, (then known as The Clarence Gardens Hotel). Whilst here, he was able to take time away from his clerical duties and escape to his turret bedroom where he produced “Miners,” the first of his poems to be published.Renowned its warm Yorkshire welcome, The Clifton Hotel Scarborough boasts many return guests. The hotel offers a wide range of bedroom types, in both traditional and contemporary styles and a restaurant renowned for its high quality Yorkshire fare using fresh produce.The Clifton Hotel Scarborough has 70 delightful bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, direct dial telephone, colour television and welcome refreshment tray. Many rooms have spectacular sea views, so you can enjoy watching the local surfers and fisherman in the North Bay from the comfort of your room. Why not take a stroll from the hotel to the beautiful south bay, where you will see the delights of the harbour and its fishing fleet.
