We chose this hotel for the good deal on cost - £55 for a twin room with breakfast. The room was spotless, recently decorated, spacious, very well equipped and very comfortable (except some springs were felt through mattress- resolved by padding with the extra duvet in the room). Got a room with a wonderful sea view and of Scarborough Castle,... More

Location wise, in the centre of Scarborough with sea views. My hubby's work had booked a room for him for work purposes and as it was half term we booked additional room for our son. We requested the two rooms be next to each other. Checking in wasn't very inviting and the hotel weren't exactly friendly. Our request had been... More

I recently purchased a groupon voucher for a weekend and paid for an upgrade to a family room. It was terrible. When we arrived we got the lift to the fourth floor but had to climb the stairs to our 'suite'. The decor was very old / tired and there were broken floorboards under the carpet. Bathroom was bad with... More

This hotel is very tired and finding your room a challenge as it is a labyrinth inside. The reception staff are very pleasant. Although the bed was made daily the bed sheet under the quilt was not straightened. The cooked breakfast was OK but very poor quality tea and coffee on offer.

Surprise after surprise is found in this quaint seagull sanctuary. I initially thought the street outside was marble but on closer inspection I realised it was bird dropping. 250 for three nights of hell (2 still to go). The floorboards are so warped I felt like I was stoned walking to my room. Upon entry to the room (we booked... More

Very good location and the hotel has lots of character, many hotels similar to this do need some TLC but the economic times mean they can't afford to due to the competition. Apart from that very enjoyable stay, okay the seagulls keep you awake at night, but you are at the seaside what do you expect, this isn't the hotels... More

My partner and I both work in a hotel so we can quickly pick up on customer service skills etc! We both found reception unfriendly and not very helpful. The room was basic... in fairness ours was 'Ok' compared to many of the reviews i've read on here, but still the wallpaper was peeling off and cabinate doors were dropping.... More
