I didn't pay a fortune to stay at Grand Hotel Scarborough but was so shocked by the condition this once prestigious hotel was now in I just wanted to get out as soon as possible.
I've toured plenty of student halls with family and have yet to come across any as poorly maintained as our room and the surrounding public areas of the Grand Hotel.
The room was so small one could barely walk down one side of the double bed let alone both sides of it and paint was chipped off all the pipework which was left visible. There were so many stickers randomly stuck on the walls saying things like 'caution slippery when wet on the tiles above the sink and 'please ensure shower curtain is inside the bath' when we only had a tiny shower it was laughable. However, there was also an A4 laminated sign telling guests what to do if they have diarrhoea including calling the management and what to do with any soiled bedding I wondered what sort of establishment we were in!
The coffee provided was of terrible cheap quality and not palatable and there were only 2 tea and coffee and milk portions anyway and only 1 set of towels for a double room. There was no biscuits and the bathroom was very dirty and is desperate need of replacement.
I can only warn others to steer well clear and not suffer the awful conditions no matter how desperate you are for accommodation. This is far and away the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
