Paid for a deluxe double and got a box room

Celebrating a 50th birthday, booked a deluxe double seaview room as a treat.

On arrival our booking could not be found and we ended up in a boxroom on the corner of the hotel with 3 nests of seagulls squawking all night.

Worse hotel I've EVER stayed in. Terrible!

First room we were offered was no better than a damp smelling prison cell.

Second marginally better but included many broken fixtures and fittings. Leaking sink, broken towel rail, missing plaster and dodgy electrical wires to name a few. Drinks poor. Food disgusting, we refused breakfast it was so poor but were refused a refund. Queue for check in and out was a constant issue, no surprise with the amount if complaints going on though. There is absolutely nothing grand about this hovel. We bought pizzas at the night as thankfully the hotel had nothing to offer at this point but we were forced to eat it outside by some strange guy on the door who actually locked us out. We paid £83.00 in total for this experience which isn't even cheap considering we could of got a beautiful room a mile or two down the road. Scarborough on the hole is awful. We wouldn't return if we were paid too. Avoid.
