I booked a Double ensuite room, however I didn't get what I expected. The room didn't look what was not what it was advertised of with inside garden view. For a price I payed, I got the smallest shower I have ever seen with no ironing board and no office desk that I needed to do my work on. The... More

Stayed as a couple for an extended weekend to convalesce . Also experienced the smell of cigarettes on entering the building despite no evidence of anyone actually smoking inside. We chose a slightly larger room both it and the bathroom were clean and in good working order. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. They are split between two sites... More

Stayed as a couple on a Saturday night. When entering the hallway I found there to be a slight smell of cigerettes. However, this was not the case with the room as it smelt fine (room 307). The overall decor of the hotel is dated but most importantly was clean. The room was nice, small bathroom with a few cracked... More

Dear DanielleA_D, Thank you for staying with us recently and for taking the time to share your experience here. We are delighted to hear that for the most part, you enjoyed your stay with us. The Gulliver's Hotel does indeed have some smoking rooms in the building which would explain the faint odour when you entered the building. As you... More

The photographs are incredibly flattering! This is a 2* B&B nothing more. Rooms clean but very basic, en suite is a loo in the bedroom and a shower with mould around the base and a door that didn't shut. It is however, right on the sea front metres from the pier. We cut our stay short and went home after... More

In name this is a hotel. But the reception is never staffed, and the door is closed. You need to ring a bell, tell that you are a guest, and wait till someone comes over from another hotel on the same street to help you. At night, guests ring to get in, which wakes you up. in our three rooms... More

I booked this hotel for my parents in-law through late rooms, which was fine... but the hotel dealt with our booking once we arrived in the most unprofessional way. They were rude when trying to deal with an issue which took two days to resolve. Junior staff could not even communicate the simplest information like breakfast times. The 'general manager'... More

Stayed here for one night and we were really impressed! the room was a little on the small side but it was perfectly clean and nicely furnished. Bed was lovely and comfortable. Nice little touches such as soaps and biscuits that you don't see much more these days in hotels. Our room did have a little window with a view... More

A little gem. This hotel was very central, rooms were clean and all the staff are excellent. Breakfast was absolutely superb. All locally sourced produce, great selection and toast made from proper bread. No pan loafs here! Would not go past this hotel, or its sister hotel, if visiting again.
