we have just returned from 4 night break staying in this hotel. My only complaint is that it had been hell on my diet. The food is excellent and plentiful, we were very surprised by the high standard. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The room we had was at the back of the hotel...

We have walked from Minehead to here, as a family , over the years. WE had 3 days off, for bank holiday and no Bed and breakfasts would let us book for one night. This was despite the fact that we did see Bed and Breakfasts with "Accommodation available" signs up, during our walk! However, they were extremely helpful here... More

Just returned from a weekend break at the hotel. If I was asked to sum up this place in one word I would use 'civilized'.It is obviously run with old fashioned values which I really like. If you want a place that is warm and welcoming in a prime location look no futher. The dated rooms and small shower facilities... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast basis to visit friends in the area. We had a sea view room overlooking the promenade which was spotlessly clean, although the bathroom was a little dated. We had a balcony (albeit it rather small) which was lovely to sit on. The staff in this hotel are excellent,... More

Just spent 2 nights here with my children aged 10 and 12. We had the family room 304, which was large, very well decorated and had a fantastic sea view, the bathroom was a little on the small side but everything seemed new which was great. What I really want to talk about is the staff. I have genuinly never... More

Brilliant position right on sea front. Our room overlooked the prom. Room was very comfortable but bathroom was really small. WiFi was only available downstairs in the bar. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Food was lovely, and I'd recommend you stay for the evening meal. Nice touch at 4oclock they provide complementary tea coffee and cake. A good way... More

A very warm welcome awaits you. Tea/Coffee and lovely cakes to greet you. Not to mention tea & cakes every afternoon. Tea & Biscuits all readily available. Lovely staff, very welcoming. Great service in the dining room and good food. Sorry to say its average score comes down to the room allocated to us. It was very small, especially the... More

5 nights at this hotel in July with service far beyond any other 3 star hotel I've ever stayed at. Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent staff from breakfast to bedtime. Always smiling, always polite, always eager to help. Smart yet relaxed. The hotel itself has the best position on the esplanade in my opinion with excellent sea... More

The hotel staff were very helpful and location could not have been better but the rooms were small. My mother had a single and it was tiny and our double was awfully tight as well. The bathrooms were also small. One morning there was no hot water in the single and the bathrooms are so challenged with space that having... More
