Had a fantastic stay at the Dovedale, Deb and Malvin are lovely, very friendly and accommodating, nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. It really is a case of anything you need just ask. The rooms are very comfy and clean. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning. The location is great as it's very close to the town... More

Stayed at the Dovedale Skegness for 7 nights in May 2015 from the 23rd to the 30th. The family room for 3 was a disgrace. They wanted 5p for extra T-bags/Coffee sachets and the food was terrible. Would never recommend or stay here again. Booked for myself, my son and grandson and the room only had supplies for 2 people.... More

Booked this for 1 night stay with my family as we were attending a 40th birthday party. The guest house is nice and clean and the landlady couldn't do enough for us. Having said that the rooms are a little small and as our daughter is older we would book a separate room for her next time. Breakfast lovely, plenty... More

Our room (3) was a twin it was clean and fresh but small.The shared bathroom was just across the landing also clean. There is no parking immediately outside the hotel but you can park just around the corner. The... More

I have stayed at this b and b on several occasions with my son and ex partner. We have always had a perfect stay with no problems. The breakfast is fab and so is everything else that is offered.
