We arrived mid afternoon and were able to park outside the hotel to unload. We were welcomed and advised about parking the car and how to get discount for the car park. We took our dog with us and we were given information about the bar being an area where could have breakfast as the restaurant is not pet friendly,...

Just got home from a lovely short stay at the royal, the staff were friendly and helpful. We were in room 119 which was small but seemed refurbished, so modern and clean didn't have much of a window but as at the moment it's dark mornings and evenings it didn't bother us. The entrance is very impressive there's lots of...

Unfortunately Britannia let us book the clifton and didn't tell us we had been moved to the royal until we arrived in scarborough. However it was quite a nice old place. Staff we encountered were friendly and helpful and parts of tissue hotel are still...

This place is utterly appalling. Rooms freezing with no working radiator so they put two plug in heaters which made no difference. The ceiling in room is bowed and looks like it could collapse with massive brown stains all over from a leak. Everything here is dated. Menu like something from the 70s. Feels like a giant fawlty towers. I...
