Scarborough Luxury Hotel Plans Moving Forwards

A high-end four star hotel could be built on redundant land at Scarborough’s North Bay.

North Yorkshire Council says it is exploring the potential of a hotel on the site of the former indoor swimming pool at Ryndle Crescent.  It was demolished in 2022 following the relocation of the facilities to the Weaponness sports village.  

The authority is looking to engage with the hospitality market to understand the best way to bring forward this proposal. It is expected that a developer will partner with the council, and potentially a hotel operator, to deliver the accommodation at the site.

This week the council has launched a formal market testing exercise (Prior Information Notice or PIN) with a Request for Information (RFI) document to engage with potential developers and gather information through written submissions.

The Council says that the need for more high-quality accommodation within Scarborough is supported by it's Visitor Economy Strategy 2021-2035 which identified it as essential for Scarborough 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.

The council says that hotel development on the former swimming pool site will act to support those developments proposed within the wider North Bay area including the Open Air Theatre.

North Yorkshire Council’s 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.”
