Just returned from a four night stay from the Ambassador Hotel in Scarborough as part of a large party pre booked almost twelve months ago, we were lead to believe that the hotel had been refurbished, yes possibly 20 years ago, looking around the place carefully you will see that it was overdue for a coat of paint, no hot...

We booked this hotel through booking.com for our honeymoon. When we arrived, we found they had upgraded us to unlimited breakfast despite us booking room only, which was a nice surprise. The room was spacious and had the promised seaview, the bathroom was luxurious with a lovely deep bath which filled quickly. The staff were friendly, nothing was too much... More

No manager its appears, no one in charge, very poor customer service, no information available at all in the rooms regarding breakfast times. Television did not work in room, was not fixed during stay. Room needed vacuuming, loud music pumping out from the bar. Disorganised breakfast, poor choice of continental, very tired looking hotel. Unorganised , don't waste your money... More

Have visited this hotel many times over the past 15 years and were always exceptionally happy, a bit quirky, but that was part of it's charm. However, havent been back for a while and was very disappointed. The small reception area is looking very drab and dated. We were shown to room 116 initially, very disappointed, it had a sea...

It would be unfair to say that our break away was totally spoilt by this hotel, because it wasn't. It just seems that the hotel doesn't quite know what it's trying to be, The reception was a little, uninspiring entrance off the side road, with a rather dark and gloomy desk and greeting hall, check in was brief and basic,...
