On the 28th June we held another fund-raising lunch for 60 people at the Doric (we've held 3 a year there for the last 25+ years!). As usual, it was superb. Jason and James (the Restaurant Manager) arrange everything for us. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. All the staff are very efficient, friendly and helpful. We... More

The Doric is waiting to see if they have any rooms available after the coach gives its numbers. It's a shame we... More

My second visit to the Doric, but possibly the last! Sadly "trip adviser family hotel of 2015" has, to me spoiled this lovely place. The evening entertainment was ruined by unruly children running all around the dance floor, trying to disrupt the artists performing and then the dancers dancing. The female parents of said children sadly joined in by prancing... More

Overall this hotel wasn't too bad, the breakfast is really nice and staff are friendly although you have to wait to be seated and can be left waiting for quite a while to be seated for breakfast. Rooms are average basic rooms but no air con and the rooms are sweltering we had to lend a fan from reception which... More

Clean room, contains the basics tea, coffee etc.. Our view sucked but we booked last minute, apparently there are rooms with sea views. But the bed was comfy and the breakfast was amazing. The staff went above and beyond especially James who was so helpful, friendly and brilliant with the little ones over breakfast. The entertainment was a bit before... More
