Went in July 2015. At the time they were having a complete redecoration before the school holidays . The guys painting and doing the refurbishment never got in the way. They were friendly even though they were sub contracted. Anyway we were in room 28 which has the most amazing view of the sea. And there was a full moon...

Very tired and rather dirty. Unable to sit on the sofa as too dirty. Two electrid fies to heat the apartment. we kept all the door open so that the unheated bathroom and kitchen would warm up. Hot water was plentiful. However, this apartment was very convenient for Scarborough Spa. I would not recommend this accomodation and would not stay...

We had booked a room for one night and were told on arrival we had been upgraded to an apartment. Goodness knows what the rooms were like! Our 'apartment' was on the uppermost floor with a good view of the sea. It was adequately clean and the decor quite fresh. It was also light and airy. However, this was an...
