Don't expect a modern hi tech hotel, this is a Victorian expansion era place that has seen thousands of visitors over the years and is no worse for it. Restaurant looks a bit 70's but the breakfast is great. Staff are wonderful (although the hubby who joint manages can be a little stern on the phone with cold callers!)
Very clean rooms, no A/C and creaky floorboards, but big widescreen freeview flatscreen telly. Very hany location, basically on St Nicks, but without the price tag of an establishment round the corner, nor the food poisoning of one across the road (cough, Grand, cough) You're a stone's throw away from the shopping centre, plus are just above the South shore beach.
Overall, cheap and cheerful, but a quick word about the lift - as many in Scarborough, it's a very old design and I couldn't see it being easy for a wheelchair user to use alone - it's an old style double gate affair.
We've been hear three times over the years (it took over as our default for quick weekends away after the Grand went downhill badly) and wouldn't hesitate to go back again.More
