The bar was also the reception where we checked in. Room: we got the circular room with sea view. It's gorgeous with the tub right in the middle of the room overlooking the sea and pier. The only downside is that there's no elevator and the room was on the third floor so it was quite the exercise. Service: the... More

Drakes is not a 5 star hotel and should not be judged as such. It is well located. The rooms are comfortable, if a little tired and the reception areas are small, but in three respects this boutique hotel is outstanding. The first is the people and the service they provide. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, they were a match for... More

Came down for the midweek horse racing as a last minute decision and booked by phone the day before. They were able to offer a substantial discount on their online prices (approx £40) so it's well worth a call to see what they can do. The room was beautifully decorated and spotless as was the bathroom. It was however a... More

Just a one night stop, after an overnight flight in from New York. Lovely (if small) room, facing the sea and the pier. Interesting shower arrangement (with the toilet and sink in the same space) but worked very well. Big enough for two (allegedly). Just don't make the mistake of turning on the shower when all you want to do... More

We were staying for one night, so i booked the cheapest room on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. The room (304) was great. I was expecting a tiny room at the back, but it was on the top floor with a sea view. The bathroom was a good size with a bath, not just a shower. Bed was really... More

I booked a stay at Drakes as part of my boyfriends Christmas present and it did not disappoint! We were allocated a room on the front of the hotel which was utterly stunning! We were granted with wonderful weather so we were able to wake up to blue skies and the stunning view of the sea. It was hard to... More

It's quite simple really, all you need to know is the rooms are beautiful, clean with wonderful views. Great amenities and the most helpful staff! Stephanie in reception was lovely and would like to thank her for making the stay even more perfect! 10/10 could not think of anything I would want to change!

We stayed 2 nights in the "Feature Room". Marvellous room with a good feel to it and good views. Breakfast was very good and the service from everyone was excellent and very friendly. So this place got all the big things right. However, it is clearly fraying at the edges - perhaps the owners are relying too much on what... More
