i didnt really expect to enjoy this at all, Scarborough being particularly noted for its old fashioned hotels. Its even better when that turns around to being a very enjoyable experience.
In comparison to most modern hotels this is slightly old fashioned but its comfy, clean, very friendly and we couldnt have wanted more.
The floorboards creak and groan, the lift stops between floors (a bit disconcerting but you soon realise its only if you put something within the beam and it starts up again), you are given a large key to the room door but all this adds to the character and do I really need electronic door opening, I can manage without it!!
The breakfast was good, the price was ok and its right in the centre of town.
Apparently I parked in the "wrong" car park and wasnt told on arrival but hey, no problem at all, it was dealt with very quickly and there was no cost.
I think we can all get used to too much "modernisation" without ever questioning whether its needed or not, I would much rather be somewhere clean, friendly and easy than a modern box hotel without those attributes.
The Palm Court provided just what I needed for an enjoyable weekend away with friends and I cant ask for more than that.
