We originally had a booking with the Grand Hotel, Scarborough but they "upgraded" us to the Royal Hotel due to non-availability of rooms. Not much of an upgrade with regards to room quality. It seemed like they had partial renovations on and the passageway between our room and the main stairway had a weird smell.
The rooms were spacious, but a few things in the bathroom wouldn't work like the shower needed quite a bit of working-on before they got running and the toilet roll holder was located on the floor. The buffet dinner and breakfast was decent though the long queues really tested one's patience.
The location is what saves it since it overlooks the sea side and is close to the pick=up point for the hop-on-hop-off bus services on the beach.
