Booked a single room here whilst my husband was away on a golf trip. The room was quite adequate for me, with a reasonable amount of storage, tea/coffee tray, clean bed linen, and ensuite shower room. The welcome I received was friendly and personal, Breakfast was perfectly acceptable - you have to make your choice the night before, but I... More

We stayed here for just 1 night. The hotel is located perfectly. It is in a quiet street but still in walking distance of the beach and the towncenter. Room is cozy. Bathroom was clean. You can make your own tea or coffee in the room. Bed was comfortable. In all a nice place to stay.

Stayed for 1 night and received a warm welcome. Room was lovely and clean and a good selection at breakfast. If your travelling to Skegness I would recommended this hotel on site parking and just a short walk from the sea.
