We were booked into the PC hotel after reading the reviews on TA. I'm so glad we did. It was excellent! Some commented on the heat in the bedrooms, This was not obvious to us. The bedroom (room 20) was very good- clean and well provisioned. The floor boards creaked, but that's part of the character of the hotel. The en-suite was large and well maintained.
The rest of the hotel was equally clean and tidy, especially the dining-room/restaurant. It was a treat to attentive staff who couldn't do enough for us. It could be said, many of the guests were past their sell-by date( including us), the staff were mindful of this and were as helpful as could be expected and then some!
We didn't use the restaurant, as we prefer to eat out, so we can't really comment on the food other than the breakfast, which was really marvelous !
Smoked haddock with poached egg or kippers - superb!
One very big plus with the PC hotel is the free undercover parking. Very few if any town- centre hotels have their own parking away from the seagulls. Traffic wardens are a menace, they're everywhere. Street parking, even with a disability-badge is very limited and very expensive.
If you are looking for a snack, then try the Sea-View Cafe on route to the pleasure beach on the main drag. It's wonderful!
Please do yourself a favour and avoid the Grand Hotel. It's no longer grand, and hasn't been for many years, it's awful and the food is even worse!!!
If you feel the urge to travel to Filey (lovely place) do try the Downcliffe Hotel on the promenade. Only a small place, but the food Gordon Ramsey would be proud of!
Also, try the concerts on the beach!!!
