This Hotel certainly is stuck back in time the folder in the room described it as a traditional family run hotel maintaining this standard, I personally think that is probably an excuse not to spend any money on it, but charging premium rate, the interior is in an extremely poor state, our room was a superior double with sea view,...

We had a lovely holiday here,the staff were lovely nothing was a problem to them,l would say that this hotel is more for the elderly as not much entertainment and a bit out of town for the younger generation,we had a second floor room with balcony the views were fantastic,the food was excellent.

This is our second visit to the Livermead: We love the hotel as it is a traditional English hotel, which serves great food in both the restaurant and bar. Plus points - the restaurant (food and service), the swimming pool, the snooker room, the variety of entertainment, the sea views and the friendliness of the staff. We like the rooms,... More

We just spent 8 weeks touring England and Scotland. This was the worst hotel ever. And it isn't cheap. I'd recommend staying here if you like to: live in the 1940's; wipe with shiny, single leaf toilet paper; wash with little bars of soap encased in plastic; did I mention plastic...thats what your cup(s) are made of; want windows rusted...
