Have just stayed at the Rainbow for two nights and after reading reviews before we went we were very worried and even thought about cancelling. What we found in reality was totally different, yes the rooms are slightly dated and do need air conditioning but we asked for a fan at reception and one soon arrived in our room. The... More

Title says it all. Rooms are in need of a refurb, but large and generally clean enough. Same goes for the bathrooms. Old and tired, but large and clean enough. Staff friendly, food mediocre but good location a stones throw from the seafront . At less than £70 for a double high season B & B you won't get the... More

Dear Marie R We are glad you enjoyed the entertainment and found the staff pleasant. As previously discussed, the berry cheesecake was perfectly fine, it was where the fruit had leaked through to the bottom of the cheesecake; we no longer use the cheesecake to help eliminate confusion. An alternative sweet/dessert was offered to you, however you refused this. 32... More

check the bed is sound as I fell out of a broken bed and broke my arm in three places and received no help whatsoever from the hotel staff. As all meals were buffet style it was very difficult trying to get food one handed and although plenty of staff stood around waiting to removed used dishes no-one seemed willing... More

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights last week. Having read the reviews I was not expecting luxury! I found the hotel to be very average. It was rather shabby and not particularly clean, my bed cover had toothpaste marks on it and the floor and wood work in our room needed a good clean particularly behind the furniture.... More

No hot water in the hotel on arrival! One guest told me he hadn't had hot water for more than a day! However I mentioned it at the reception before going out for dinner and when we returned a couple of hours later the water was hot! Our room was very dated and the ensuite definitely needed some attention as... More

I stayed at the hotel for two nights to see a show and I was pleasantly surprised. Hotel staff friendly and helpful, room clean and tidy, food was of superb quality, lots of choice and catered for everybody. There could be a couple of little tweaks but these would only be minor e.g. Rental of fans for rooms because they... More

I have recently spent 2 nights with some girlfriends at this hotel. We booked a twin room and was kindly given a family room which was large, clean and spacious. There weren't many plug sockets for phone chargers/hair straightners etc and there was just a bath with a hose attached to the taps, no shower curatin, so the elderly might... More
