Stopped here on Saturday night, the hotel is in a great location about 5-10 minute walk into Scarborough. The hotel provides free street parking which there is plenty of. Rooms are nice and clean, maybe a little bit of decorating needs doing but no issue as clean. Breakfast was included and a good selection of continental or full English. For...

We only stayed in the hotel for a night but we wished we could have stayed longer. Really nice and clean rooms, the staff was welcoming and helpful at all times and the pool and the sauna we're small but clean and had a nice atmosphere. The breakfast was high quality and a good choice of food. We felt comfortable...

The first impression was not good, the stairways didn't look like they had been cleaned in a while and although the room had fairly good facilities the mattress was uncomfortable and the bathroom was very tired and unwelcoming. However the breakfast was really good and the dining room nice and airy with lovely views across the Bay. Although the hotel...

The swimming pool was really cold on our visit, so cold that some people didn't get in it. Our room was small, the light above the bed was in bits with the lampshade and light bulb on the window ledge and the radiator controls were broken. It was so hot in the room we had the window open all night...

I was charged an extra £100 due to my 2 year old son being sick on the bedding. I told the cleaner and she advised me that it was fine and just one of those things and to just leave the bedding on the floor as it would be getting washed anyway. They charged me without any contact I would...

Dear Amy You was charged due to the excess sick that was not only all over the room but up the walls and on the mattress (this was not baby sick), the blood all over the bed and sheets and the used nappies you left all over the room for me and my team to clean up. The cleaners actually...
