This hotel is within 10 mins walking distance of the town, parking was easy with plenty of spaces. Excellent breakfast choices, one small negative point was the size of the room my husband and myself were allocated, it was on the top floor with a sloping ceiling and very little floor space. A tall person might have problems avoiding banging... More

Thank you for your comments and we are glad you enjoyed your breakfast. We did discuss your room being on the top floor before you made the booking. If you had raised your concerns about fire safety we could have showed you that we are fully compliant and certificated in all areas. All doors are fire retaining doors and negate... More

Stayed in the Winter Dene for a single night. Room smallish but clean and comfortable, with all necessary facilities. Bed very comfy. Per-person pricing meant superb value for solo traveller, with good breakfast included. Friendly hosts. Good car park. Nice garden. Easy walks to town, beach and cliffs. WiFi worked throughout hotel, though a bit slow at popular times.

An excellent find. Spacious room with all facilities. Good breakfasts. Plenty of parking but anyway only 5 to 10 mins walk of beaches and town centre. Very fairly priced for such good quality accommodation.

Beautiful building, easy to park and a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Highly recommended. The room was big (room #11) and clean. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice (juices, coffee, tea, yogurt, cereal, full english, jam, marmelade, toast, etc). The view of the back garden from our window was beautiful.

Stayed for a week in a family room, which was very comfortable, clean and great for a family of 4. Fantastic food- we had breakfast and evening meals, lots of choice and generous portions and even special hot chocolate for my son. Heather and Renzo and all their staff made us feel very welcome and went out of their way... More

The room was very good, thought the idea of separating wall was ingenious for travelling friends, breakfast was very nice but was sad to see there was no dinner at non-peak times as the reviews looked good Customer service was brilliant, everything was catered for!

Just had a three night stay at the Winter Dene Hotel, very warm reception from Renzo. The Winter Dene is a very clean and comfortable hotel, set in beautifully maintained gardens with adequate free parking. Many thanks to Heather for providing an excellent good quality full English breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble for Heather and Renzo, will definitely stay... More

Stayed here in July for a long weekend, fantastic breakfast and I had 1 evening meal, all home cooked, great portions. Car parking and a short walk into town or down to beach. A great find as my normal B&B was fully booked. Wifi was hit and miss

3 night stay here over the Air Show weekend. Excellent hotel - very clean and lovely bedroom. Liked the bottles of water provided in the room. Breakfast was very good. Great location as well - very easy to walk to the beach, town and bus stops.
