we travelled to whitby for a five day monday to friday break, first impressions from the outside was "is it still open", it looks very rundown and in dire need of decoration. Our room was on the second floor at the far corner of hotel, first impression was that the room was quite spacious and clean, looking closer we found the wallpaper was hanging off in places, the bed was rock hard and old, the windows were filthy making it difficult to see the sea view. the tv was old and there were only the basic 4 channels,
The one good thing about the hotel was the food which was excellent although served at breakneck speed by the overworked but friendly staff.
Overall i think shearings need to spend quite a lot on updating and decorating this once good hotel.
