We stayed here for a dancing weekend , it was the first time our dance group had stayed here so it was a bit of an unknown for all of us . However, it proved to be a really nice place to stay . We all come from different places in the country so travel separately, so on our arrival... More

Our 2 night stay was a special deal and when we first entered the hotel it looked better than a 3* - the reception, public lounge and bar areas are attractively furnished and welcoming as were the reception staff. After that it was a bit of a roller coaster ride of experiences. We were allocated room 369 on the second... More

Greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Large car park and nice clean, bright lobby and bar area with lots of seating. Room wasn't quite ready on arrival so had to wait 20 minutes before getting key. Room was HUGE with some lovely period features. Decor, furniture and bathroom dated but perfectly usable and adequate for our one night stay. Leisure... More

The hotel is a bit dated with the decor a bit tired in places but the room was clean and the staff friendly. We used... More

Stayed in this Bespoke hotel on a group on deal for 2 nights during half term in February... It is just a short walk from the lovely beach front and the town centre. The foyer area and bar appear to be quite new. Staff were very friendly and helpful right from the start. We were on the second floor... The... More

Thank you for your review Brummiehome, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the Wessex, the lift is an experience but its not something that can replaced easily due to the small lift shaft, there is a second lift in the building that's much larger and very modern. We have begun an internal refurbishment program where we are re-painting... More

If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful hotel this is for you. The décor and appearance of the hotel is in need of updating but, absolutely adequate for what we required as we only use the hotel as a base and for food. We always book a hotel with an inside pool - this one was OK, again,... More
