... Club for a look. It is built high on a hill beside the sea and is where John played cricket for 40 odd years. Had a great lunch in a Pub in Brid and then did the tourist walk around. We all had a go on the 2 penny games as well as a horse race type game. Oma also arrived from Holland and she flew into Leeds where her daughter & son were there to pick her up. Fish & chips for tea and then a bit of chat and into ...
... room. This made it unique from the other castles I have seen and it was incredible to see the vibrant carpets, ceilings and paintings. But there was of course a few modern twists like the porcelain statues on the main dining table wearing plastic transformers armor, a huge flat screen TV and foosball table in the lounge room and two small soft toys we spied discreetly hidden below a painting and a sculpture. I really wish ...
... throwing of paint through to colourful flower filled boats on the Ganges. This reminds me how much I am looking forward to the next chapter in our adventure. I am not sure if its having the same effect on Ian though! The final room contains a collection of miniatures. This is more interesting than it sounds. A lady who lived locally started collecting historical miniatures which included furniture, crockery and machinery. As the collection grew she wanted to display them in ...
Our day did not start very well. Last night none of the lights were working in the trailer (these all work on 12v power. Our hook up (240v) was working however so Ian decided to leave it till this morning to fix. First to check fuses, these were working fine although Ian has now dropped the 10amp fuse, it has fallen inside the black box which is riveted together so impossible to take apart. We borrow a screwdriver off motorhome next door and Ian unscrews ...
... loo paper? The mind boggles! Tent pitched, we set up the halogen oven outside in the warm sunshine. Lunch today is roast chicken, roast potatoes and veg. Just what Sundays are made for :-) After a late lunch, we pop into the nearby town of Kirkbymoor to buy some loo rolls. I buy a four roll pack and place one of them in the loo on our return. I really can't be bothered to keep carrying it over there. We will just have to hope Miss Use does not dispose of it in our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Britannia Grand Hotel Scarborough
Travelled the world and have never stayed in such a hovel
Stayed in the Scarbourgh Grand,grand by name but what a hovel.
I reported this hotel to Health and Safety, and the Tourist Board.Obviously nothing has been done.
The entire building needs to be shut down,and the inside rebuilt.
The reception staff to have some lessons in manners
The cleaning staff lessons in cleaning
Stay here at your peril.
Hotel from hell
What an absolute dump the room was filthy and would not let my dog stay in there, we complained and asked for another room they said there were none availabe, thank god we only had to put up with it for 2 days, it needs completely refurbishing it may have been ok 70 years ago, how they can still call it the grand is beyond me, never again
Excellent carnt be beaten on price
Very Clean. friendly service an excellent value for money break near to all the attractions food ok basic though
Last time I stayed in Scarborough I booked a room through tourist information, which was cheap and cheerful. Sounded a great idea to stay in the Grand Hotel the next time, and it was suitably expensive when I booked it.
The destruction of a grand hotel
We stayed at this hotel in the spring of 2004, such a majestic looking hotel, if you want to see a building falling into decline, even pushed, this is the place to go, it is worth seeing what the place could be, but if you love old buildings, it is very sad to the eyes indeed to see it fall and pushed into its decay. I am glad I saw a great building before it's final demise, but as a hotel - I am sorry, it requires a very wide berth, the coffee is cheap rate and horrid, the food is spartan, and it has all the charm only someone with poor taste could worship. Very sad indeed, and with a little love it could be the best hotel in Britain!!, listen up Butlins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
having just spent 6 days at the grand hotel, my wife and I both agree it was good value for the price, ok there was a couple of problems at first but the staff went out of there way to solve the blimps, first we thought the room was abit small so the reception staff were very helpful and changed it to abigger one, the room was great with a seaview what more could you ask for, they even gave us a electric fire when we said the room was a bit cool the first night, we only used it that one night ,the entertainment and food was verygood, h day
The GRAND Is GRIM
We entered the hotel and became aware immediately that we had made a huge mistake...it was smelly, smokey, dirty and totally unsuitable for us...with two young children! We decided to view the room but that was awful...the smoke from the reception area followed us up to the third floor and I was having trouble breathing, as an asthmatic it was obvious we couldn't stay. In the room the covers on the four beds were old and not particularly clean, the bathroom was shocking and the furniture very old. We left immediately, despite the fact it was 5.30pm with two hungry children...I would not risk eating in this hotel.
We booked into the hotel and we were asked to pay for the room straight away ,we then were taken to the room and taken down a passage where the roof had previously caved in and it was showing all the josts and the doors on either side of our room had no entry over them . The room was dark damp and disgusting we immediately asked for another room and that was pretty similar and while your there please look at the carpet its alive with slugs and bugs on the floor which can be more or said of the staff as they immediately gave us our money back less transaction charges with the debit card. the security man is the most unpleasent man imaginable as he then escorted us off the property .this hotel is the biggest dump imaginable and should be avoided ,the only hotel I would say this resembles is the Bates hotel in psycho! or a scene from a carry on film
Worst hotel ever
stayed a few months ago at grand hotel what a joke . the first room was terrible it was dirty it smelled we payed for a sea view the window was that dirty we couldnt see out of it,the doors were hanging off the furniture the window in the bathroom was held in place by masking tape.
in the bath there was still body hair from the previous guest as well as a ring mark.they couldnt move us from this room when we complained they said to find somewhere else how do you do that on a bank holiday weekend? the restaurant was the pitts if you happen to be the second sitting you ate on the dirty table cloth from the first sitting ie egg stains and god knows what . we left after the first night with 12 flea bites as a parting gift . save your money and find a clean bus shelter.
An eye opener
The room keys were issued to us but the room was stil the way the previous guests had left it. After complaining to the reception desk we were asked to come back after 2 hours. We did it was still the same.
They then said it would be ready in 5 minutes. All they di was change the sheets and towels. There was still pubic hairs in the bath.
DONT GO THERE
