Myself, daughter and fiancée stayed here for 3 nights and found the hotel lovely. We had originally booked two double rooms which were situated next to one another but on the first evening we discovered that one of the rooms had no hot water but the staff could not have been more accommodating. After trying to fix the water unsuccessfully... More

Parking is about 5 minute walk. Breakfast, ok, service awful! Never seen such a disheveled welcoming staff ever, as the woman in breakfast showing our table! Looked like she had a plait that was done about 4 days ago and slept in it, very poor for any staff! The only members of staff that were nice were on reception when... More

We recently visited this hotel after getting transferred from its sister hotel. The room we got put in was extremely small with no window or ventilation. Therefore the room was extremely hot. I complained to the manager who would not refund my money. The duty manager offered an alternative room which was just as bad as the one we were... More

In a good location overlooking the sea, the hotel is in need of refurbishment. However our room with a sea view had been recently refurbished, the bed was very good and the room facilities fair. Breakfast was good, self service with the usual choices, full english and continental. There were parts of the hotel that were in desperate need of... More

Stayed here for a surprise Birthday (not mine, thank goodness) The young blonde receptionist was very rude to one of our party when they asked to be put in another room as the room they were given was not the one they had booked. We were handed our key and told to take the lift turn right and walk a... More

Went to Scarborough for the day on Saturday with family, but could only park in the Brunswick shopping centre car park. Completely forgot to check closing times and found ourselves stranded with 2 young children without car or room for the night. Managed to find this on the net and had to book 2 doubles as no family room. Got... More

Having paid a supplement for a sea view room we did not anticipate having to lean well out of a window and look hard to our left to see the sea! When asked about a change they suggested I keep luggage in present room as unlikely to want the alternative - and they were correct. In its day this must... More

On arrival at reception from what I can guess from previews reviews the duty manager was not helpful at all, he was talking to customers with poor body language with elbows on the desk showing no interest what so ever, when it was my turn to speak to him I asked if there was anywhere I could leave my suitcases...
