The Central Hotel occupies a Grade II listed building in The Crescent, Scarborough, which was built between 1833-1857 and is described as the most important Georgian terrace in Britain outside of Bath. The Hotel overlooks the delightful Crescent Gardens and sits opposite the Scarborough Cultural Quarter where you will find The Scarborough Art Gallery and The Sitwell House - ''Woodend'' Museum.

The building was originally 3 houses that’s why our address is 1-3 The Crescent.

Work on the Crescent was started in 1833, designed by Architects Richard Hey Sharp and Samuel Sharp of York.

This ambitious residential scheme proceeded slowly: the smaller Belvoir Terrace was complete by 1837, but only four more houses had been built by 1850 and construction was not fully completed until 1857, by which time the arrival of the railway had permanently changed Scarborough’s character.
