This hotel has undergone a refurbishment to enhance its 'Spa' status, since my previous stay, however, it would appear that this was done by the local team of ' cowboy builders. The swimming pool had not been re-grouted and the rustic, stone flagging around the perimeter was not finished off and had gaps where it joined the pool. The water in the pool was very cold, as if to deter guests from using it. The sauna was suitable for 'skinnies' only, as it was too small to manoeuvre onto the benches.
We paid extra for a sea view room with a balcony only to find that someone had been smoking in it and it stank terribly of stale tobacco. We were moved to a different room above the restaurant which, unfortunately was noisy from 7am onwards due to music being played. We weren't' too happy either, returning to our room and finding it had been left unlocked by the service staff.
This hotel was my favourite Scarborough residence, but unless it improves I'll be looking elsewhere.
