First of all I booked and added a comment about birthday packages, no one got back to me, I rang the hotel several times to pay upfront and no one got back to me, even putting the phone down twice. Heather finally helped me out and was a great help. We arrived and spent nearly half hour waiting in reception... More

Had a spontaneous trip to Skegness and stayed here. Lovely hotel, room had a balcony and view of the sea and is just a short walk from the main strip. Highly recommend if you like somewhere a bit more up market than a Skegness B&B and want to avoid the stag parties.

Stayed here on a quick overnight stay.The room had the feel of just being refurbished and was a good size and comfortable ,if a little dark .I would try to stay in a room out the back and on the first floor.The staff were friendly and helpful. It is a good old style British seaside hotel.

Stayed here for two nights with a few friends over the last weekend. Arrived early around 11, asked previously for an early check in. Was told that the rooms would be ready for 12. This was perfect for us as it allowed us to go into town. All the staff were friendly and helped with anything we needed. The breakfast... More

Entrance and reception area gave wow look. But disappointed the minute we entered into the room. This hotel made the Skegness unforgettable place in our list. We were given the room in ground floor, rooms stinks and bath room was worst than the public toilets.
