I stayed here for one night whilst on business in a single room. I paid £25 so wasn't expecting much. Firstly I need to say the staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful. The decor is very dated but some refurbishment was taking place. I had a lovely view from my room. The thing that let it down for me...

Basic, but clean and warm, view is lovely, Breakfast was ok, I was lucky to get a cheap deal for the two days, and it was OK. OK is about the best I could give it as a hotel, In its day I am sure it was lovely, but scarborough isn't what it used to be.

Fab weekend away with friends. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Bar and reception areas warm and comfy. Bar prices good. A lovely traditional hotel, a bit worn around the edges but great nonetheless. Superb value for money. Will definitely stay again!

Excellent welcome and lovelt room. Wheelchair acessible and dogs welcome.£5 charge for pet dog, my assistance dog was free. The food was delicious. Will definately return. We parked the car and walked everywhere. The view from our room, 119, was fabulous, over looking sea and town and a small balcony. The décor is a bit dated but very charming.
