We booked 32 people to stay in this hotel for a Hen Do. A sophisticated bunch we thought we stay somewhere nice and make all the guests, a variety of ages, feel comfortable. On arrival, they could not find all of our bookings saying there had been cancellations and changes. All apparently because we had booked it through a different... More

I went here with my boyfriend for 2 nights for a mini getaway through wowcher and the deal was well worth it! The hotel was old but the rooms had been modernised as well as the decor but you could tell the hotel was old and had a certain vibe about it. The staff were very helpful and attentive whenever...

Having booked the hotel I was concerned to read Michael Palin’s “The Python Years” 1969-1979. On Page 2 he describes that after one night at the Durley Dean the whole crew checked out, unhappy with the facilities. Well I was relieved to discover that 40+ years later it is now something completely different. The rooms were clean and decorated to... More

We stayed at the Durley Dean Hotel on a two night Buy a Gift voucher. We knew the car parking might be an issue, but manage to get into the hotel car park on arrival. The staff were very welcoming and pleasant. We had a large room which was clean and well equipped.

I`ve stayed here a few times now, mainly down to the location which is great just a 5-10 min walk into the town and a couple of minutes to the beach. Since they have re-furbished the Hotel it is a lot better as it was getting a little bit tacky, the restaurant is great only had breakfast which was good!... More

Nothing amazing, staff friendly, room a bit tight but perfectly acceptable for a night's sleeps. This is a busy area with many hotels catering for groups, although there were a few families there as well during my stay. Parking is extremely tight in the surrounding area but there is a small car park at the rear.

My single room was mouse sized and on the noisy main road. If you are lucky enough to have a room at the back of the hotel check its not over the kitchen fans!! Other guests had double rooms but very small double beds not suitable for tall or large build people! Bedding is rather mean - that is the... More
