We stayed in Hotel California for 2 nights, initially it was for 2 nights and then we extended it to another night. The hotel is just minutes away from beach. Our room was excellent, with a conservatory and balcony. The view from the balcony was excellent. Water from the sea fills up the ganal, turquoise crystal clear water looks amazing... More

Had a pleasant time at this hotel. The room I had was clean. I did have a problem initially with a room for disabled access but after 24 hours was given a ground floor room which is more accessible. Breakfast was great but evening meal option is very limited. I would stay at this hotel again. If you have a... More

On a trip around the South western part of England, Hotel California was one of several hotels we visited in july 2015... And BY FAR the worst. The cleaning wasn't all right anywhere in the hotel, the breakfast was below average, the shower didn't work, the pool area was dirty and with a reale unpleasant smell of funghi.

When we walked into the bedroom allocated it smelt of wee, dark, and very small. After complaining we were moved to a room overlooking the river Gannell, this room was brighter but it smelt of smoke...the furniture is old and marked..the shower was very poor...sorry for what we paid it was awful. A big mistake but seeing as were attending... More

As I drove on a dark desert highway with cool wind in my hair and the warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air I noticed up ahead in the distance, a shimmering light. Due to my jet lag, my head grew heavy and my sight grew dim therefore, I had to stop for the night. As I walked... More

I, unfortunately booked this hotel in a rush, without reading the reviews - big mistake. The receptionist on duty came across as brusque and unfriendly. The place is a dump, to say the least. There is cat-pee odour lingering throughout the hotel. The decor is outdated which would be a lesser problem if there was no dust and stains on... More

I booked this hotel before I read trip advisor reviews. Some of the photographs and comments persuaded me that I had made a bad mistake and would just endurne my one night stay or even book into another hotel. Wrong! This is a lovely hotel with unbelievable views of the estuary and beach. There are two swimming pools, outdoor terrace... More

We attended a wedding at this hotel, which was a great, with lovely food and good service. However, we booked a family room so we could all stay and it was like being in a different hotel. First off, we had to bring our own travel cot - not a huge problem, but nevertheless, a bit of a pain especially... More
