Stayed at the Grand Hotel from Friday 11th to Saturday 12th July on a Saver Break. Upgraded to Bed Breakfast & Evening meal before arriving. Could not fault Reception, but was surprised when asked for Credit Card details again.
Had assumed I had booked, but Brittania only hold your room booking until you arrive, then you pay properly. Asked for a upper floor on booking. But got placed in a room below the main entrance, Room 2332. Room was clean and comfortable, but no windows, no there was a window in the ceiling, which must have had a use in the past. Furniture dated but alright, except for the lampshade cover which was just hanging on.
Main problem is the corridors on floor Minus 2, when you come out of the lift, the smell hit's you. It is far beyond musty, what this floor needs is adequate ventilation. Corridors have not been touched for ages, it shows on the sides of the carpets as you go to and from your room. It smells of damp or of chemicals used to clean carpets.
evening was a set meal with soup, choice of main meals and sweet. Vegetable soup, so blitzed it was perfect for a baby. Main meal options were Fish, Minced Beef and Mushroom Pie or Gammon Steak. Fish and Beef & Mushroom pie looked to have come from Farm Foods. My wife had the Gammon Steak and said it was fine. Sweet was Jam Roly Poly and Custard. You could not taste the jam, the custard looked like water and had no taste. Breakfast was this hotel's saviour. Everything cooked well, though restaurant staff need to replace the tea and coffee flasks when they are empty.
We eat in the Harbour Restaurant, this is where you eat if staying on a budget break. Premier Restaurant next door is for the "Premier room's" ate. Great views across Scarborough Bay from the Harbour Restarant, furniture slightly dated. Staff helpful and hard working.
Used left luggage next morning, whilst we had a quick last look around Scarborough. No problems it is free and main reception quickly helped retrieve our cases.
We both stayed on a Saver rate for the weekend. I know if you pay budget prices, you get budget accommodation. I believe what we paid at the Grand, could have got both of us something better in Scarborough. The Grand is showing her age. Please, Brittania give the old lady a make over. She is in need of it.
