We visited the Urban Beach with the intention of eating in the restaurant, But when I saw the chef and probably his assistant jumping in the rubbish bin, I thought better of it. Presumably they were compressing the garbage. The chef was wearing his kitchen clothes. Disgusting.

This is a brilliant little hotel where I felt really comfortable staying on my own. The staff were lovely and attentive. The food is excellent. It takes 2 or 3 minutes to walk down to the beach and promenade. I would definitely stay there again.

Visited with a couple of friends for lunch. The staff really helpful, cheerful and efficient. The special offer food was exceptionally good value - £10 for two people (two courses) Although I only went for lunch, this would be a great place to stay. A good location with easy access to the beach, shops etc.

i stayed here for a couple of nights on business on the recommendation of my supplier. They obviously know their stuff! It's a strange little hotel which has a lot of San Francisco about it - very relaxed, and very , very friendly. The rooms are ok - no higher than that - but the experience is lovely. The evening...

Many hotels have tended to follow a theoretical formula with the result that they become indistinguishable from each other and thereby sterile. Urban Beach, however, breaks the mould by focusing on comfort and value along with making available those extras which make a stay better without fuss or extra costs. This is a south coast gem set a short walk... More

It is a kind of hotel where you feel like at home. Small but cosy rooms with comfortable beds and pillows, soft towels and nice staff. The only thing that made me afraid was the language of menu. There were some options of dishes but in fact they were almost the same. The menu seemed to be written by a... More

Took the wife for Mother's Day with our two young daughters. Food was good value with the sunday roast down sized for the two kids. atmosphere and background music were on the mark. And the staff were very friendly and helpful. The wife said "well done this place is me" now that's high praise indeed!!!!
