Stayed at this hotel after visiting a conference. The staff were very helpful, professional and friendly. The room was very nice. Decorated to a high standard. Robe, slippers, full sky including movies, excellent toiletries, good coffee and tea making facilities. The food on the restaurant was the highlight. Very very good. Not far off becoming a mitchelin star I would... More

Me and my husband stayed here as a special treat as we missed out on the opportunity of a honeymoon. We told the staff this in advance and they could not have made our stay any more special! We stayed in a sea view room with a wonderful bath tub overlooking the window. On arrival the bath was drawn with... More

I've stayed here several times now and still love the place ! The staff are really friendly, its always lovely to find a genuine, smiling face after a long journey. I had to swap rooms to due lack of availability, which I knew on booking, it couldn't have been simpler, and may even try it again next time. The in-room... More

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
