Nice and friendly staff. Not as cold as other train stations. Just the one shop and one cafe at the back. Nothing special.

Visited the other day, waited a while for the train but the station is much cleaner than before and the staff are very helpful. I remember it being a bit rundown a while ago but it is quite a pleasant place to visit now.

Basic historic train station. Main enterance under renovation so enterance on side via steep steps, there is a lift if you enter further round. I booked tickets in advance but collection machine is really impracticable having to bend over to use screen and insert card.

Frequently change trains here, they’ve done some good improvements to the place, good wide main waiting area with a cute ticket office, cold in the winter but what stations aren’t!! Nice cafe in the corner too, great for a snack.

The train station itself is just an ordinary train-station. Plenty of space inside. Did no feel safe outside the station area.

The staff are always busy around the station cleaning and tidying but the Great British Public is an untidy animal! The lounge on the Saltburn platform lacks effective heating. There is a small Costa service bar in the platform bookstore. The toilet doors appear to...More
