We stayed for a couple of nights in July. I read some of the other reviews and thought - how could they be talking about the same place? Yes the rooms, hallways, bathroom were old. But that is what we LOVED about it!! Our bathroom had old wooden beams in it. The old fashioned windows opened onto the street. Maybe... More

My partner and I were really looking forward to our meal here; we have never been before and saw that it had just been renovated. We turned up, having phoned earlier that day to book a table, and we hadn't been booked in- luckily there were tables available so I wasn't hugely worried about that. We ordered a glass of... More

We stayed for one night and were very impressed with the decor of the hotel bar/restaurant. Our room needed updating especially the bathroom but for one night it was comfortable enough. We are going back to stay there next year and have been told by the staff that all bedrooms are going to be refurbished by then.... Our breakfast was... More

I can see the manager's vision for this hotel. It is currently nearing the end of a big refurbishment and clearly going to market itself as an up market bar, restaurant and hotel when it is finished. The décor in the lobby, restaurant and public places is to a high standard. Our room and the stairway leading to our room... More

Very hard to describe - old original building but with layers of different architectural periods incorporated into it. Overall atmosphere is cosy, friendly and very positive. When we went, the bar was busy, as was a beer garden type area outside, but this was not in the least oppressive - there was a bubbly holiday atmosphere which we enjoyed. The... More

I booked a night here for tonight and did not stay. The first room we were given was a £9.50 room at Pontins. I asked to be moved and I chose another room that smelt musty and was so old fashioned. We left as I could not stay. Do not be fooled by the lovely bar and staff, the rooms... More

Having had two previous stays at the Hotel I felt confident that when my daughter and I booked we would have our requested needs met. I particulary asked for a quiet room but we were given a room opposite a very busy bar and because of the warm weather it would have been uncomfortable to close windows hence our sleep... More

Tuesday 17.15- Arrived at the Falstaff and found plenty of space to park. Checked in to my £89 per night room to be in a small room where my girlfriend and I had to squeeze past one another to view the spectacular sight of an escape staircase and a roof. After a quick shower and change we headed downstairs and... More
