I arrived at night and i asked at the desk what time their restaurant was open until. I was then told there was no longer a restaurant. One of the reasons this hotel was booked for me was because there was a restaurant advertised. If I had have known this I would have gone to the Queens Hotel instead. So... More

One side of hotel faces West Street where there are bars and club, which means lots of late night noise. It went on till 5.00am. No indication given at check in and no chance of another room as fully booked. Ear plugs on offer!!

Stayed at the Umi for two nights 5/2-7/2. Hotel was a very pleasant surprise. We had a quad room which was spacious & clean and bathroom adequate. Tea/coffee facility in room with replenishments provided very efficiently. Breakfast was tea/coffee, choice of 3 cereals, croissants, hot buffet: scrambled eggs/beans/bacon/sausages/mushrooms/tomatoes, toaster also available. What more do you need to start the day!...

Was a romantic break away, large room, comfy bed, great breakfast. Is right on the front just up from the pier, our last night was sad as we were woken up in the early hours by the coastguard helicopter + emergency boats who were searching for 2 men who had jumped in the sea, made for a morose breakfast the...

Booked this one through groupon, expected to be at the back of the hotel with no view, but when we checked in learnt we had an upgrade to a full seaview. We thought the room was a good size, lots of good storage, a big comfy bed. Yes the bathroom needed a bit of attention but overall not a bad... More

We stayed at the Umi Monday to Wednesday after booking via Groupon for my husband's birthday. Location is fantastic for all the attractions - the pier, SeaLife Centre, The Lanes etc. On arrival we got upgraded to a sea view room by Clive as it was his first day back from a week off! Watched the waves crashing on the... More

Booked this for a long weekend with not much in the way of expectations for greatness. Was sure I'd booked a double but when we got to reception the booking was for a twin. Luckily the staff asked if I wanted a double and upgraded us to a family room at no charge. Room was fairly basic but had some... More

Room 409 - described as Executive, presumably top-of-the-range accommodation. Spacious room which in fine weather would be comfortable with excellent sea-views. However, the hotel is in dire need of an upgrade with drab decor and worn carpets. Freezing cold with one small radiator and very drafty timber, single glazed windows which are rotting - we borrowed 3 duvets to sleep... More
