Grand Hotel Scarborough Where you can live like a King
The Grand Hotel Scarborough is an impressive looking hotel that overlooks the South Bay in the town of Scarborough, England. The hotel has undergone recent renovations that are estimated to be around seven million English pounds. With a number of upgrades the hotel is now a Grade III hotel that is owned and operated by the Britannia Hotel chain. When it was first built in 1897 it was one of the largest hotels in the world and has a distinctive look with its yellow brick that is locally made in the town of Hunmanby. The entire building was built around a theme.
The four tours of the hotel are meant to represent the four seasons, the twelve floors the months of the year and the fifty two chimneys are meant to stand for the weeks of the year and finally the hotel has three hundred and sixty-five rooms. In 1914 the hotel was badly damaged when the German Navy bombarded the town. The clientele of the hotel has changed over the years and instead of catering to high end customers, the hotel now caters to those who are on a budget. While the hotel has been marked with controversy throughout the years it continues to attract thousands of visitors each year.
