We stayed for 2 weeks at The Minerva and wished we could have stayed longer, It is ideally located 2 mins from the beach and walking distance to various shops, pubs and various eating places. The breakfast was delicious each morning and nothing was too much trouble for John or Maxine who are both really friendly and helpful. Our children... More

We got back yesterday from an 8 Night Stay at The Minerva, and at the end booked for next year too! We found the hotel to be lovely, the rooms (we have 3 in total) were all extremely comfortable and clean. Breakfast was lovely, cooked perfectly, the odd morning we had a bit of wait to be seated, but this... More

The staff are nice so it is a good first appearance but the rooms aren't clean and bathrooms are small but beds are comfy and nice the seaside view is nice however in a hard place to reach. Lots of people seem to like it because there is many thank you cards near the entrance.So an overall average seaside hotel

The Minerva Hotel won't win any awards for looks or style but as a place to crash in a great location and at a decent price, it's worth a look. The decor's a bit tired and the rooms are a bit grotty but the owners are friendly.

The Minerva is a fantastic example of how a proper British hotel should be run. John and Max could not to enough for us. We had a lovely cooked breakfast each morning and our room was kept spotless throughout our stay. All the rooms have TV, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities, en suite and comfy beds.

John and Max were the perfect hosts. Nothing was a problem, not that there was any, during our stay. Even used his own car as a taxi. View of bay, fantastic. Breakfast great. Weather hot, but John can't do anything about that (I think). Denis. Pete. + Derby lot.
