        • Older travelers

          The breakfast was very nice and the staff were helpful, the views from the restuarant floor were fantastic.

          The room was poorly laid out, the bathmats were mouldy & dirty, there was mould on the ceiling. The heater had tape around it as a repair, there was no milk on the complimentary tea tray and the view was a grassy bank covered in weeds. The layout of the ground floor (how to find the lift etc) was a bit difficult.

          The excellent breakfasts, the grandeur of the hotel, the friendly well informed staff, the facilities

          Parking outside when arriving was a problem

          The rooms in the towers not suitable for handicapped visitors.My wife had difficulty in negotating the staircase; but everything else ok and I would consider returning in the future.

          The Grand was ideally placed, overlooking the beach yet in the very centre of the town. Excellent value for money and breakfast included as well! I would definitely recommend a stay at the Grand Hotel, Scarborough. Our only disappointment was that the Queen was visiting Scarborough on the day we left.

          the central location was fine for the shops/beach,the entertainment was excellent,and the layout of the hotel was GRAND.

          lack of car parking, the restarant was more like a canteen,i would like to pay more and have table service.

        • Older travelers

          the location is excellent and the dining options were very good for a buffet style resteruant

          was dismayed to stay in a room with no windows and next to lift shaft i feel i should have been warned

          • Average rating
        • Group of friends

          The friendliness of the staff and the hard work by the cleaning staff to make the rooms clean and comfortable. The aesthetics; the place is certainly grand but within the budgets of a larger range of people.

          The Grand was a perfect choice for us. The rooms were bright and clean and we all enjoyed the spa bath at least once. It is in a great position for exploring and shopping. We had a great afternoon at Scarborough Castle and also enjoyed visiting the cricket ground. We had half board and both the breakfast and dinner were well worth the money we paid. We will hopefully return soon.
