I purchased via Red Letter Days to include a bijoux room with a freestanding bath, 3 course dinner at night and breakfast in the morning for my boyfriends birthday. Staff were amazing and helped to organize a birthday cake for him on arrival, the service was amazing. The restaurant food in the evening was one of the best meals I... More

Tv with lots of channels Location of hotel good near the pier. The bad: our room was at the back. Restaurants vents blew out smells so we could not open window. Sheet on bed was... More

I booked a sea view room for my partners birthday this month costing around £155 for one night. As we arrived to check in we found out we had been upgraded to a king size room on the top floor. Although the stairs are a climb it was worth it as the room was stunning. Very clean, room service was... More

We stayed two nights at this charming establishment and liked it so much we would have stayed longer (but they were fully booked, unsurprisingly). The location is brilliant, on Marine Parade, close to the Pier and Ferris Wheel. They have a bit of parking which is a great blessing. They also charge for it which ordinarily I would mind. However... More

I stumbled across this charming little hotel whilst on a late booking site. I was warmly welcomed having managed to park outside the hotel. I was really appreciative of having my bag carried up to my room which was on the second floor. I enjoyed a delicious evening meal and was looked after by all the staff during my stay.... More

Stayed at Drakes this week. It's a nice hotel with a great location by the sea. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are small but well decorated. Due to the limited space, there its a freestanding bath in the window bay of the bedroom. It's a feature, it's not for everyone, but cleverly done given the very small wet... More

I booked this hotel for the night before my partner's 30th. I told them beforehand and they thoughtfully left him a card in our room! Hotel is easy to find and does have parking spaces a few houses down - I suggest getting to the hotel for the check in time as it means you get a space. Really friendly... More

Let's start with the location: directly overlooking the sea, close to city centre, but far enough for the noisy stag/hen bars. Tip: have a cocktail in the bar at sunset. It's magical. My favourite cocktail is the "Porn Star Martini". Probably one of the best in the world. About the hotel: Check in couldn't be more welcoming. We were shown... More

Drakes is the most wonderful of boutique hotelsI Everything: truly delicious food, the best wine choices we have come across, stunning bedrooms which feel like an ocean liner whilst watching the sub set across the Pier, & then a delicious breakfast. Cocktails so good that difficult to pace oneself given the wonderful wine. But above all, it is the intimate... More

Myself and my partner went to this hotel for his birthday. We stayed in the circle room, with the stand alone bath and it was an absolutely lovely room with fantastic views to wake up to. The wet room was a nice size too (had seen some people complaining on here about it so I had my reservations but it... More
