My boyfriend and I stayed for just the one night on the weekend of the 1st October and we did book earlier that week so at £94 this was a little steep. The hotel itself was set in a nice building, which is something different from a regular travelodge. It was in good walking distance from all the 'delights' Scarborough has to offer and probably had a nice sea view if you had a front facing room.
The room itself was spacious, the bed was pretty awful and squeaked whenever you moved on it and the room itself was unbelievably warm. There was no remote control for the television which was irritating. We got woken up probably about 5 times during the course of the evening by men and women in varying states of inebriation. Which is fine but I was pretty tired and it was as if they were having a party in the hallway which is also fine but would be nice if the hotel staff bothered to tell them to shut up at least once or perhaps even put up one of those 'Shh' signs hotels seem to generally favour.
On using the shower and moving the shower rail back, my partner received a pretty bad electric shock from the rail itself which was kind of unnerving, and the bathroom had absolutely no ventilation which heated the entire room up to sauna standards.
The staff were nice enough, if not a little slow on occassion and breakfast was pretty travelodge standard, i.e. poor. There were literally no knives. On asking if there would be knives at some point during the morning I had a rushed reply from staff who probably didn't care anyway. So I cut my beans on toast with a spoon. There were only two guys working the breakfast room at the time and this clearly wasn't enough. Another couple had to wait upwards of ten minutes for a table, which is kind of obscene. In terms of the food itself, according to my partner the sausages "tasted like sick" and the selection of stale croissants and horrific scrambled eggs were not worth even close to the extra £9 each we paid on top of the already overpriced hotel room.
This was, for me, a last resort hotel as there was nothing else in the area at short notice. Sounds bad but I longed for the Premier Inn around the corner.
