Council explores possibility of creating high-end hotel in Scarborough

North Yorkshire Council are exploring the potential of creating a four star hotel on the site of the former indoor swimming pool at Ryndle Crescent in Scarborough’s North Bay.

The council is looking to engage with the hospitality market to understand the best way to bring forward this proposal, which it expects will involve a partnership between the Council and a developer and potentially a hotel operator.

The Council says the need for more high-quality accommodation within Scarborough is supported by the Visitor Economy Strategy 2021-2035 which identified it as essential for the town to provide an even greater range of good value and high-quality accommodation in order to attract more staying visitors, extend the tourism season and continue recovery and growth of the tourism economy.

Importantly hotel development on this site will act to support those developments proposed within the wider North Bay area including the Open Air Theatre.

Deputy leader Cllr Gareth Dadd, said: “The provision of a high-quality hotel is intrinsic to realising the overall objectives to develop the North Bay and remains a key strategic focus for the future growth and prosperity of the town. It would bring in jobs, increased overnight stays and therefore increased spend in the town contributing to the wider economy, community, and social benefit of the county.”
