A lovely family run hotel which cannot do enough for you. It is ideally situated some 100 yards from the sea front yet only some 500 yards from the main shopping centre. It also has car parking which is at a premium in this area. The room was very comfortable, clean and roomy. Breakfast was first class, freshly cooked and... More

Stayed on a Saturday night and suitably surprised at how well this place has been prepared. It has the feel of a recent refurbishment with excellent beds, well laid out rooms which are generally easily accessible from the lift. Great breakfast in a lovely room as well. The walls are well soundproofed, despite being full we heard nothing from the... More

We enjoyed two nights at The Sheldon. It's not far from the sea front, and about a 10-15 minute stroll to the shops, so the location is great. We loved the spacious room, which was simply but tastefully decorated. The bed was huge and so comfortable. It was two singles put together, so there was loads of room to stretch... More

We have booked this hotel already in February due to lots of reasons - positive reviews, the short distance to the seafront, own parking space, the photos from their Homepage and much more. We have spent 11 nights in "The Sheldon", it has been perfect and a very happy time for us. The room has been nice decorated with more... More

Stayed here mid August with my husband and Mum. We had two lovely rooms - a superior double and the luxury suite. Fabulous space, light and airy, very clean. We were given a very friendly welcome on arrival and it was great to have a space in the off road car park after a long drive. Breakfast was very good... More

Booked a room in June for the Airbourne Airshow in August. No planning involved, The Sheldon was the first place I tried which had a room available because of a cancellation! How lucky were we?! Close to both beach and town, free parking, albeit a bit tight with the size of modern cars, and excellent breakfast with plenty of choice.... More

We stayed for three nights over the very busy Airbourne Weekend. The deciding factor for us to book was the location and also the car park which is a real bonus this close to the beach. It really was a lucky find. Our HUGE room was at the front with a bay window, a king sized bed which was really... More

Stayed here after a recommendation and wasn't disappointed. Booked the budget double and the room was very clean and comfortable (lovely bed!). Breakfast was absolutely delicious and there was a huge range of goodies to be had! Most importantly, the staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us (including helping us get out of the car park after some... More
