The position of the hotel was lovely but no so the room. We were on the lower ground floor with an opaque window that didnt open. The room was really hot even though there was no heating on and we couldnt let any fresh air in. No chest of drawers for our clothes either. The staff were very unhelpful. The... More

Myself and my 18 year old daughter stayed here using a wowcher voucher. We were greeted in a friendly way and checked in really quickly. Our room was on the top floor and finding the right lift to get us there was a bit of a chore/maze but when we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised. It was... More

I suppose I echo many of the comments on here already. The hotel is tired and run down, it needs a really good overhaul. The location is good but at the expense of many other things I would stay at the Premier Inn across the road, at least the standard of the rooms will be better. I would neither return... More

We booked a club room for 2 nights through Booking.Com which we have always found to be excellent, to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. The email confirmed our booking, the image of the room was lovely and it said we also had a dressing room. When we arrived the valet parking was a shambles and we were given a tiny... More

We booked this hotel as we were going to a show and it's just across the road from the Pavilion. The gardens are lovely, well cared for and have beautiful views. The room was ok but small and didn't have a dressing room as stated on the booking confirmation. There was red stain on one of the chest of drawers... More

A hotel basking in its former glory.The new owners have institutionalised the property.Everything is on the cheap except the price of drinks.Breakfast was terrible Stewed tea,frozen bread and pastries cheapest products used.Ghastly! The car park @ £20 per night is very poorly organised with long waits for the car to be returned.Luggage room has poor security.Only good thing about the... More

Amazed at the poor reviews. We booked an online deal through Wowcher and couldn't have been more thrilled with what greeted us. A very pleasant and helpful receptionist, indeed all staff we encountered couldn't have done enough for us. A nice double room with a beautiful sea view, comfy and clean. Quaint and gentile, we almost stepped back into time,... More

Why oh why did I book before checking on trip advisor. I try not to be too disparaging on reviews but what can I say that was positive-we had a lovely sea view and great weather? Everything about the hotel was mediocre to poor and I cannot understand how the hotel still has a 4* rating. Ignore these reviews at... More

We had booked this hotel for a 3 day break. It was very disappointing. Our room however was fab, book an executive room, it is worth it. We found the room to be cleanand our towels were changed every day. The reception staff were very nice although one of the female staff who was Polish or from some eastern european... More
