So my wife and I organised the trip and we picked By The Beach Hotel, as it was very close to the Pleasure Beach, had free parking,... More

Me and my partner were very skeptical about coming here after reading all the mixed reviews, but £25 a night with free parking.. Why not?! When checking in we wasn't fussed about having a sea view or whatever so we had the back (the cheaper option obvs) The bar was clean and the staff was friendly and made basic convo.... More

The childrens bunk beds squeaked at every movement, I woke up every hour to people talking and shouting outside our room. Shower was mouldy, bathroom... More
