We stayed here for 1 night after a show at the Futurist. We only stayed over because of a forecast of snow. Room cost £50.75 plus £15 for breakfast.
Reception was fine . The room had a lovely view but was incredibly spartan and looks cheap. My husband was staggered by the electrics - just lots of wiring boxed in everwhere. TV is fasened to a piece of fake wood on the wall and in a position where no one can see it unless laid in bed. one nasty white plastic chair. The windows had black mould on them and the bathroom light was broken.
I think they've aimed for minimalist trendy but ended up with prison cell cheap.
Breakfast was billed to start at 8. By 8.10 there was a queue of about 20 people but no sign of life. Eventually a member of staff arrived and told us she was on her own - other staff had not turned up because of the weather ( which actually wasn't that bad after all). WE were told to take seats and then the poor woman started dashing about giving out crockery and cutlery ( why don't they lay the tables the night before??). Food eventually arrived but it was all very makeshift. Hot food just OK. Bread and croissants very stale. 2 of drinks machines not working.
I raised the problems with the receptionist who tried to fob me off although she did eventually come and help the poor woman trtying to deal with breakfast customers.
All in all not somewhere we'd rush back to or recommend. Its a shame really as it has one of the best locations in Scarborough and with a bit more effort could be so much better.
Parking - the hotel only seems to give out information for NCP parking. We used a Scarborough Borough Council car park -North Street - where it is free to park between 6pm and 9am.
