The food was great and the staff very friendly with staff going the extra mile joining in with the fun. Some of the bedrooms look a bit dated but were clean and comfortable, if there... More

Stayed for two nights. Food was fair and room was tidy. Don't expect The Ritz but your not paying for it. Decor is fading and bar area needs sorting out. Ceiling is held up with temporary wood nailed to it.

I stayed in this hotel on 18/10/2014 for one night with my wife and three year old son. We had booked the hotel next door "Kensington" but there was a issue with our room so they put us I this dump. The room was filthy and very dated, cables hanging out if the wall, cracked plaster TV did not work.... More

We stayed at this hotel as a family of 3. Our request of sea view, full English breakfast & family room was accommodated perfectly. The room was beautifully presented and the bathroom was very clean. Comfortable, clean & central location. Ideal for a first time visitor!

We called on Saturday morning, in need of a room as the one we was in at a different hotel was appalling (do not stay at The Savoy). The staff let us check the room before booking, which was a good size and very clean. Although... More
