3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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.

We stayed here for 3 days visiting from Australia, the hotel was excellent, extremely clean, very well located close to the town centre and the beach and has a fantastic view. The owners John and Maxine are fantastic, they gave us great advice about the area and cook a great breakfast, I would definety recommend staying. Pete

A great value for money hotel in a fab location. Stunning views included! We were greeted with a friendly face and some good advice on where to go. Throughout the stay John and Maxine made us feel really welcome without invading our space. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and Maxine was a friendly host every morning. An extra bonus was... More

We stayed here on a stag party. Facilities are basic, but you really want somewhere to rest your head. Decor is a bit random but seemed clean enough. Breakfast was fantastic although could do with extending the serving time which is currently 8-9. Worth getting up for though. Pool table in the lobby was a bonus. The owners made us... More

We all arrived as 15 overly excited hens on a weekend hen party, from the moment we arrived we were all made so welcome by our two hosts Maxine and John. We were given our rooms straight away which were clean and comfortable. They have gone beyond the call of duty to make our weekend be the best john even... More
