Just off a busy roundabout but far enough back to be quiet, gardens are well presented so you can sit and enjoy, didn't have breakfast as I was out early should imagine it was good but maybe next time, I had a single room en-suite which was very comfortable

We had a lovely weekend at the Winter Dene. Good location, clean rooms, free car park, reasonably priced and a great breakfast. I couldn't decide whether to go excellent or not. Our bathroom was a bit small and pokey but others in our party sounded like they had better rooms.

This is a comfortable hotel with good parking near to the centre of town (5 -10 minutes dependant on mobility). Our bedroom was large with modern fittings and on-suite. The main treat here is Breakfast which is FRESHLY cooked within a few minutes of you being seated (all tables are with your room number). the service is excellent and friendly.

We stayed here for the long bank holiday weekend and really enjoyed it. The room was spacious and comfortable with a great shower. Parking was easy and we were in walking distance of the promenade and town centre. The breakfast was delicious and service was friendly and efficient. Overall good experience

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Winter Dene on 25th April 2015 and had a great time. We were really pleased with our room as it was fresh, clean and very spacious. We fancied a bottle of wine on the Saturday afternoon and read in the brochure that wine could be purchased from the hotel- we were a little... More

Breakfast was perfect, I dont like eggs or grissly sausages so I explained to the Chef (who was part owner) and she catered for my needs, I was given veggie sausage... More

The Winter Dene is a little way out of town. Although our room was large and very clean it was furnished in a very old fashioned way. There are lots of stairs which was not a problem for us but could be for others. The breakfast was adequate but very average and the staff who served it civil but not... More
