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!
