This hotel could be so good with a lot of money, tlc, and more staff thown at it. I remember it years ago when it was very good indeed. You can still see signs of its faded glory. I stayed recently for two nights with my daughter. My room had had a makeover but would have been better with a... More

We were going to a family christening in Scarborough and my children picked this hotel for the swimming pool. On arrival late at night were asked to pay for the room first before seeing it, which I refused to do. I had asked for a sea view which we didn't get, room was a good size and it was fairly... More

I stayed at the Royal on Tuesday night and it was honestly one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in! The smell as you walk in says it all, then there's the creeping floors to add to the effect! I arrived in my room to find the bathroom floor full of hair where it clearly hasn't been cleaned...gross!!! The... More

Stayed 2 nights over a weekend. Definitely a faded glory hotel with threadbare carpets, no bath mats and peeling wallpaper. A very noisy hotel at night with banging of doors. At least Premier Inn have notices to be silent at night. An excellent location and staff were friendly but the whole hotel needs a whole new makeover. Breakfast included tinned... More

No car parking when I arrived so had to trail around streets looking for parking covered by hotel voucher, Not fun after a long day. Room was comfy enough but wet room bathroom turns into a lake when shower used. Evening meal was fine - lovely soup but nothing out of the ordinary for the price. Checking in took a... More

I booked a weekend stay for family to relax after a stressful start to the year. I asked for two double rooms at a budget rate which was reasonably priced. I added breakfast and evening meals with a bottle of wine per room at a reduced price of £6. Our rooms were clean and comfortable but the decor was a... More

Recently returned from spending one night at the royal through Groupon the deal was cheap enough for what we got. But our friends paid £110 and they got the same tasteless food we had and we all paid an extra £20 for a sea view room with a big tree blocking the view. I could tolerate the room but not... More

We stayed for partners birthday and booked online. Parking was a problem to start with. The room was marked as "executive" but was clearly very tired. Seemed to have been painted with enthusiasm recently, but not at all professionally. The curtains were stained and hanging down and there was a hole in the window frame, caused by rot. Shower was...
