Not much to say really, only stayed for one night and we didnt get to bed until 2am, but it is clean and comfortable, reasonably priced, with friendly staff and a wicked breakfast ! No real issues and I would return if in the area again.

Just to thank Darren for his wonderful approach to running his lovely establishment. I have read some of the reviews below. It makes you wander what people expect from a small independent provider. Everything was clean. Breakfast was fantastic. Location is spot on. Parking is free. Would recommend to anyone looking for a couple of days right by the seaside!

Whilst the room was comfortable and walking distance to the waterfront; after reading reviews we expected friendly service. We stayed there on the 27&28th June and saw awards for friendly service hung on the walls and were surprised to find the opposite. Interaction with staff was short, curt and lukewarm to say the least. On the second night there was... More

We are sorry that you felt that your stay did not live up to expectations. We are finding of late that people are coming here with extreme expectations and so a dose of reality never does anyone any harm.

I have been a regular visitor to the Mowbray over the last 6 months due to having work commitments in the local area and cannot speak highly enough of it; the beds are exceptionally comfortable, rooms are always spotless but to be honest it's all about breakfast for me, having spent many years eating anonymous buffets in so-called fancy hotels...

Arriving at the Hotel by car means no parking and having to carry suitcases up stairs before even entering the front door. The Man who greeted us was certainly pleasant and offered to help with our cases and made a welcoming cup of coffee...it went down hill from here. The room was on the third floor and is accessed by... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Unfortunately as you mentioned nothing at the time of your stay it is difficult to pinpoint when and which room you stayed in. Many of the issues you raised could have quite easily been rectified whilst you were here if you had raised them at the time. The first thing... More

We have just spent 3 nights at the Mowbray and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Set in a very good position, 3 minutes walk from the sea front, and 10 minutes walk to the town and a good old Wetherspoons pub. One of the theatres is opposite, so handy for an evening out. Nothing was to... More

We spent 3 nights at the Mowbray and it was excellent. The breakfast is top class with delights such as Eggs Benedict and Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and plenty of other choice all freshly cooked. Hotels is in a superb location. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. Would recommend to anyone.

The hotel is situated in a very good location closed to Theatres; less than10 minutes walk to town centre and train station, and about 100 metres to the Sea front.

Spent a weekend here and I would recommend it to anyone, loverly place to relax and also only yards away from the seafront. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff or the owner himself, who was extremely helpful. The breakfast was quality and there is no way you could leave the dining room hungry, as there was so much... More
