We've Just returned from a three night break at the Grand and had a lovely time. We have stayed before and knew it is in need of some tlc. We booked a budget room and was not ecpecting a room with a view but was shocked when we were given a room in the basement, with no Window, very depressing...

There are some bad reviews about this place. A lot, actually... Of course, there's no smoke without fire, and here are the negatives as we saw it. The parking is pay and display on road, and quite difficult to find. You may have to store your vehicle in a local multi storey. Be prepared to queue! The popularity of the...

Big thanks to Kieron at reception as he was a good chap. We didn't expect high-end luxury here as the reviews and the cost of the rooms told us otherwise. So we visited with an open mind and tried to focus on the good points and not the negatives. The building is stunning and has so much interesting history. The...

The most frustrating thing about this hotel was the parking , there were only a few spaces outside the hotel which were always full. So on pulling up outside the hotel we had to park in a loading area only space and when we went in to check in there was a long line which was very slow only one...

This place is awful and i would not recommend staying here to anyone. After queuing for a good 20 minutes we eventually checked in, we were on the 4th floor and then had to queue for the lift which can only comfortably fit 4 people in, we resorted to the stairs! The bedroom door had a gap at the bottom...

We booked through booking.com and it was a deal so luckily did not pay totally full price as would be asking for compensation! We queued for an hour to check in. The room was huge and the bathroom tiny and disgusting, not clean, tired and chipped bath. The mattress on the bed was so thin you could feel the slats...

Ive been to the grand a fair few times and its never dissapointed. We chose this hotel purely based on the location. Its in the heart of the scarborough sea front with a lovely 50p tram to avoid having to walk up all those steps! We opted out of the lunch menu in the hotel but did have breakfast which...

In its heyday I imagine it was amazing . However it doesn't look like it has had any investment into it for years . I can put up with cracked walls and ceilings cob webs shabby carpets and general neglect. What I marked it down on was service which was abysmal. Checked in and had to ask 3 different members...
