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. The view from... More

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.

Stayed in a great room with my husband and our four year old son, we had a double room with an adjoining room for our son - it was so relaxing all having our own space, plenty of storage room for all our stuff - a great location, right by the beach and shops etc, and the hosts are so... More
