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

This hotel is close to the centre of Skegness and within a few minutes walk from the shops, bars and attractions. 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. I am a vegetarian and it has never been a problem for Debbie or Mel to make me veggie food. The... More

This is a brilliant guest house! The landlady can't help you enough, one of the nicest i ever met!! The breakfast are superb and if you want something they not got, she will cook it for you if you get ingrediants or tin :) Parking is a slight issue but easy to find a space on a near side street....

Very friendly and chatty with a great sense of humour only downside was the shower in the morning when I guess everyone was using it went for a nice warm temp to freezing cold and then... More

Me and a friend recently stayed at this hotel for a weekend away. It was pleasant enough up until I went for breakfast on the Saturday morning only to be told I was 5 minutes late and my breakfast had just been put in the bin! I found this most annoying. I have been working away now for 12 years... More
