Stayed here on a hen night and didn't know where I was staying till I got there. The hotel is attached to a takeaway/ cafe and as soon as we walked in, the smell of grease was unreal. The bedding was clean but the room was old and dirty and not worth £30 a night. The breakfast was ok, but... More

I think the Saxton is an great place to stay if you have a big family. Its affordable, good breakfast for the kids and a short walk from all the attractions. Its no 5 star hotel because its not meant to be and it says that in the brochure so to those of you who believe it should be closed... More

This was then swapped for small size, obviously different type, bland tasteless rubbish. They couldn't tell us... More

Fantastic value for money with sea front location right next to the tower. Breakfast is adequate which is a full english comprising of bacon, egg, sausage with toms and beans and toast also thrown in with tea or coffee, £10-12 per night depending on season time, Friday / Saturday weekend rates £15 per night. This is cheaper per night than... More

We made the mistake of having lunch at this terrible excuse for a cafe, purchasing the special offer fish and chips. Now I consider 'special offer' to mean you get the normal good products for a lower price because it is on offer, was I wrong...it means they have some really cheap small fish they keep for this specific purpose...
