As a solo traveller to my National Federation of Occupational Pensioners conference in the Spa Complex at Scarborough I needed, for the first time, to find accommodation for myself and found the Grand Hotel via the internet. The moderate charge for bed, breakfast & evening meal was fair and the reception staff put me ( as an older person ) in a twin room on the fourth floor as an upgrade at no extra charge. This hotel seems to have a lot of custom from coach parties and a higher than usual percentage of folk of mature years means pressure on the lifts. My meals were served buffet style in a huge dining room that overlooked the town and were of good value especially the soup which was excellent. Seating was comfortable & assistance with service of food for those unable to easily serve themselves was given in a friendly way. After dinner coffee/tea was self service in the lounge area and could have been better laid out. Though there are signs of the heavy traffic on the corridor carpets they were intact and reduced the noise of pedestrian traffic along them. I didn't take part in any of the entertainment having heard the word Bingo! Very pleasant to hear a pianist in the lounge, after dinner, playing old favourites. Very high winds when I was there so my courtyard facing room was sheltered but not from angry seagulls taking refuge there squarking for perching points. Reception staff knew their town and were most helpful. There is WiFi but never had the chance to use it as the password included numeric figures.
