Stayed here at the beginning of June for 2 nights. The hotel is cheap and cheerful. It is an old building, so noisy floorboards, and 'slanted' floors, walls etc should be expected. If you just want somewhere to sleep while exploring the local area this hotel is perfect. It isn't the cleanest or modernist hotel, yes it could do with a few licks of paint, and a few small alterations would make a huge difference, but at the end of the day it is somewhere to sleep that is very cheap. The beds were comfy, and the bedding and towels were freshly washed. The room was 'cleaned' daily. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so unable to comment on that.
The location is great, and a 10 min walk to the central shopping area, the beach and sea front is a little further but the views are worth the walk.
The wifi is slow but if you are on holiday who needs it anyway!
The staff on reception were lovely, and very helpful.
I would probably stay here again if I was in Scarborough on a budget.
