Never again
Rooms very outdated No bar Very noisy

Ambassador Hotel
Not for us
Tired Hotel. Parking is on street with the hotel providing a scratch card. This would be misery in the busy period I am sure. Music kept us awake till 2am. Staff apparently were on duty but clearly don't walk the site. Hot water and bed was comfortable. Not for us but some will like

Ambassador Hotel
Hotel of horrors.
The worst Hotel in Scarborough. Filthy and poorly maintained. Furnished by Poundland. Breakfast free for all. Rubbish WiFi. Overpriced doss house. Not to be recommended.

Ambassador Hotel
Give this a miss!!
Hotel is in a good location. Requires updating and not worth the money paid. Double bed was two single matresses of different thicknesses nightmare!! Coffee cups were mucky as was the kettle. Blood on the walls also. Would not stay again.
