We had spotted this place on our last visit to Scarborough, as we were staying a few yards away, so decided to give it a try. The booking system is very dated as its just a case of ringing up and hoping for the best. Having said that it seems to work very well for The Boston, so why change? We will definitely go back again, as the staff were more than helpful and extremely friendly. We actually loved the fact that they catered more for the elderly bus trips, well that was the case on our visit! The oldies were lovely and it was nice to have a chat to some of them. We didnt participate in the evening entertainment but they all seemed to enjoy what was on offer. The breakfast was more than adequate, as was the evening meal. We had a fabulous view (room 14) of the sea and the bed we found very comfortable. It was very warm in the hotel and the receptionist kindly lent us a fan, which was a godsend. It was a very pleasant change to stay here. We much preferred it to the larger chain of hotel, catering for stag, hens etc and the usual wooden receptionist reading from a script! All in all we had a great time in Scarborough, the weather was warm and mainly sunny, the hotel was very good value, and the people are very friendly. Cannot wait to go back again for another weekend.
