We have no record of you staying at The Ambassador Hotel, Scarborough, UK. Therefore, please remove your review immediately. We do not offer safes in our rooms. We are also a 'Westernised' company, in the 'West'. Therefore, there must be some confusion. Please remove this review immediately as it is having a negative impact on our business and this review never took place at our establishment. We are also reporting this to TripAdvisor for them to remove it also. We suggest you find the correct Ambassador Hotel, in the world, and post it on their wall.

Stayed here one night to visit the Spar theatre. Our room was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. The hotel is close enough to town and sea front amenities. Parking is on the street and is permit only but it's free.

We stayed there this weekend 1st July and had the same experience. Unclean room especially the bathroom and shower. Paid £159 for our room for one night expecting a premium from what we saw on the website a d couldn't believe our eyes when we walked in. I rarely leave a bad review as I know how hard it is to be perfect when busy but this was really bad. I've read some of the manager replies saying that they are doing the rooms up soon so maybe they should consider not letting people stay in the rooms that need renovating until they are done or even charging them a lot less than what we paid!
