Stayed at this hotel for two nights. We had a room with a view, and a good location. The hotel was clean and welcoming. Breakfast was good the staff very helpful. We had one evening meal in the hotel which was good.

Disappointed with this Hotel, we had a sea view room which was huge but the bathroom was not very big at all with a shower that you had to put the soap and shower gel on the floor , no room to turn round in it. The bed creaked everytime you turned over, there was a kettle, coffee,tea and biscuits.... More

like being in gods waiting room . the place was very worn down and would make a good shot location for a 70s comedy show. the staff were ok and the food was wetherspoons quality. I wouldn't say avoid but don't expect to much from your visit.

£55 bought me a night in this classy 'real hotel'. Everything was perfect for me, but if you have limited mobility the walk up and down to the sea might be a problem. There are cable cars handy though. The upshot is the view. Possibly the best in England. Only 4 stars because there is no wifi in the rooms,... More

Have visited this hotel twice now. Even though the hotel is very old the staff, food, view, scenery is wonderful. A lovely place to stay even though the rooms need updating. We had the best room in the hotel with the most fantastic view,

We stayed here for a night after attending a wedding here. The Esplande is one of those grand old hotels built in the heyday of the seaside holiday. It sits in a prime position on the top of the south bay and commands amazing views out over the bay and beyond. Our room on the 2nd floor had two windows,... More
