What a unique & quirky hotel. It's situated on the promenade with lovely sea views. It's around a 10min walk from the train station & city centre. So many nice touches different from the norm. When you check in, you're offered a complimentary welcome drink then shown to your room and talked through the facilities. I thought this was a... More

Our second weekend visit exactly a year from the first and exactly the same, no even better, experience. Personal and attentive service starts when you walk through the front door and enjoy a welcome glass of prosecco on the house. Staff strive to see to your every need from parking (not easy) to local attractions (plentiful and accessible) and graciously... More

Well this was a last minute find and must of been fate. What a fantastic place. We stayed at the Manhattan themed room and absolutely loved it. We stayed one night and had evening meal and breakfast in our room the next morning served by the owner Max. What a lovely and clever man. Food was fabulous and all the... More

Sometimes hotels don't really live up to one's expectations; the Zanzibar exceeded them. This is a wonderful hotel, somehow run super-efficiently but with a lovely friendly, relaxed vibe. The room (Antarctica) was beautiful with a stunning sea view. Breakfast was excellent. I can't think of a single thing that could be improved on! Well done Max and team, you've created... More

We made a last minute booking at the Zanzibar Hotel and it was great. It is situated right on the seafront. On arrival we were met by the owner who was really friendly and he showed us to our room - carrying all our bags!! - even though we were situated on the top floor, and then he sent up... More

This was our second stay and on our anniversary I was treated to the lovely Manhattan room, which is the penthouse on the top floor. The room itself was really great: simple but elegant decor, fun juke box, aquarium table, skylights and of course the lovely views and the massive bathtub! All made for a great stay, yummy champagne breakfast... More

Zanzibar is both a hotel and a restaurant - Pier 9 - and it makes a pretty good fist of both. As a hotel, it is small but with every room carefully themed, decorated and equipped. We stayed in India but from our experience and the other reviews all the rooms are good. The weather was unseasonably hot for the... More

Lovely place, fantastic room (Africa) with a great big spa bath, fantastic sea views too. Very pleasant to have a glass of bubbly on arrival, all members of staff were very welcoming. On the first morning, we had our breakfast in the room, second day in the dining room. It was a bit chaotic on the second day, I think... More

Another visit to the Zanzibar, this time in Antarctica (last time was South America). It's another sea-view room, with a white-silver decor, and an en suite steamroom/sauna set-up. This time we ate in the restaurant, which was also excellent. The service was once again superb at every stage. Look for my previous review for more details.

We stayed at the Zanzibar for one night and what a fun experience! Max, the owner, greeted us on arrival, took us to the room (we stayed in the 'Japan' room) and showed us all the bits and pieces, then invited us down for a drink on the house. The two ladies serving in the restaurant and the bar were... More
