“Sadly not tranquil, classy experience promised ”

I clearly stated at booking that I needed a quiet room with sea views I could be comfortable in from early evening as I was alone with my 4 year old daughter and would not be able to go out after 8 and was unable to take advantage of the Spa with her. I was willing to pay approx. £200 p/n for a deluxe suite (room 108) on this basis. I got the views but on my first night the ambiance and tranquillity were destroyed by loud pub-style singing and music from the bar below from 8pm (even my friend on the phone could hear the noise), which didn't stop until 11pm and my daughter could not sleep until then. Then there was a quiz the next night, so loud I could hear the questions from my bed. Even the mornings were spoilt by music from the bar below, but this would not have been an issue but for the night time racket. It was SO disappointing. The views were lovely though and the room was great and most staff were kind but powerless, and the manager failed to resolve the matter. If someone had explained the bar was below 108, I'd simply have chosen another room or hotel.

Finding The Ambassador is easy. Coming into Scarborough from any direction follow the signs for the A165 and take any of the roads that lead onto The Esplanade. We're right in the middle overlooking the fantastic Scarborough South Bay.

We're a 10-15 minute walk from the Railway Station - but we recommend you take a taxi, it won't cost you much and who'd want to be lugging those suitcases around when you're on holiday!
