This a small family run hotel. Yes the rooms are small, but that is fine. They are a lovely family and will do anything to make you stay enjoyable. You will never go hungry here, they always come round with extra food. Good choice of food sourced locally. It is better than the usual hotel used by coach companies. The... More

My wife and I had an amazing time as we joined a Highcliffe Holidays Coach trip "Turkey n Tinsel" week-end to this gem of a hotel. This small hotel is family run and assisted with very friendly helpful staff, so you get personal attention throughout your stay. Nothing is too much trouble, if they have not got anything you need... More

Just returned from a Turkey & Tinsel break with Leons coaches, from the moment we arrived until the second we left nothing was to much trouble for the staff. We were a little bit disappointed with our room (size and arrangement) but as we were only sleeping and changing in it did not see the need to complain. The evening... More

Staff great, Food ok( like the seconds). Made to feel uncomfortable due to our mobility scooters blocking a doorway.Asked owners prior to stay if it was alright to have 2 x 8mph scooters and told yes. When we moved the scooters found a chair had blocked the doorway instead. Beds saggy, and dip in middle of mattress packed with old... More

Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed our stay at the De La Mer, and the only niggles were small ones. First, great food, well cooked and very tasty, good portions and more if needed (it wasn't!) The only niggle here was that 2 days running, the milk in the jug at breakfast was sour. The wait staff were great and... More

We have just returned from a stay at this hotel we went on a coach trip. The hotel is good, food plentiful they do offer second helpings if people require them, but usually they come round just as you are eating your meal so you are not sure if you would require more or not at that stage. So waiting... More

The the target market for this hotel seems to be group travelers (eg coach parties). It does this very well and seems to is a popular choice with customers of coach operators. We have recently had a short break there on a coach tour and recognise the virtues of this place for such groups. However, I think independent travelers should... More
