“the villa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed at the villa in the summer this was our second stay and i have nothing bad to say about the place the flat we stayed in was excellent claen tidy and very spacious. The staff are very friendly and the plus point is that the mexican resturant at the front of the building serves very tasty food. the location is superb and overall a good place to stay and we will be going back.

We had a. Most regrettable experience staying at this establishment to gain access to out rooms we had to pass through a corrider whic firemed part of the kitchen the rooms were not clean and very noisy and smelled from the coking in the Mexican Restaurant. I would hoghly reccomend avoiding this establishment.

Room Tip: Avoid at all cost

I paid £50 for a room here. I'm not staying at a top London hotel. I got what I paid for.

Finding the hotel was easy. Reception was warm, friendly with a Yorkshire twist. The public areas are a little dated.

Our room had a beautiful sea view, was well furnished, clean and quiet. I didn't hear any other guests arrive and slept well in a comfortable bed.

I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

I would have been happier staying in a tent on a camp site! The whole property have a very peculier smell, in fact a fowl smell. The beds were disgraceful, the kitchen and bathroom were rotten and I had seen better sofas in rubbish tips! Overall a disappointing stay to what could of been a lovely weekend.

Room Tip: Not apartment 1!

We picked this place because of price and parking availability. We where told when we arrived they had no rooms left so they where putting us in a flat on the second floor. When we entered the flat there was a smell of damp the bathroom had tiles coming of the wall and a series of cracks in the ceiling there was no shower just a bath with an old tap hose we presumed to wash our hair with. I wouldn't have used it on my dog!. The kitchen was clean and ok.There were milk portions in the kitchen but no tea or coffee?? The bedroom was large but in it it had the most uncomfortable bed i have ever tried to sleep in the matress was lumpy the sheets etc where clean. The TV did not work.Both of the windows rattled all night. At 9.00am the fire alarm went off briefly we presumed this was to wake anybody who was still asleep!

The front of the Villa looks great, but entrance to the apartments is through a rather tatty side entrance since the front is now given over to a restaurant and cocktail bar. Inside the building is pleasant senough with rooms that could be called reasonably comfortable though still with room for improvement on the kitchen front. Our room looked out into an alleyway with rubbish but we could ignore that and the price it was all fair enough but you doo leave feeling that if you come back to Scarborough, you would like something a bit nicer!

Room Tip: Some apartments I think are better than others and have a better view - worth checking out what you...

Horrible the corridors they smelt , the string in the bed was sticking out the bed must of been years old . The kitchen in the room was smelly wouldn't even dare have a cup of tea from it. The room with double bed in had a settee in that was all worn and dirty . Going up to room was a nightmare with the stair with a toddler and dad having to use a walking stick. Made me bork

Room Tip: Not the one we had apartment room one
