Visiting family in the area. This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this hotel. In the last year. Always have a room on a higher floor with large sash windows over looking the bay. Yes, it could do with a lick of paint, but the friendly, helpful staff, views and comfortable lounges, more than make up for the... More

Spent three nights Room only deal on the top floor in a spacious double room with a bath and nice views of the sea. Checking in was simple and staff were accommodating. Rooms are comfortable and relaxing with heating on all day and clean. Close to the Spa Complex and sea front after a 5 mins walk

“Wonderful overnight Stay” The Booking.com price that I found for this hotel was excellent. Also the view from my very comfortable hotel was beautiful. I didn't use the WiFi or have breakfast (through my own choice) The only issue that I experienced was a problem of Booking.com and not the hotel. When booking the hotel I was asked what my... More

Just spent two nights at the lovely Esplanade Hotel. As some reviewers have mentioned it does need a bit of a update but was wonderfully clean, beds very comfy, stunning sea views and very accommodating staff. Would not hesitate to recommend to others as well as stay again!

This hotel is in need of refurbishment. The rooms are clean but dated. The views are amazing. Have to say we had the whitest crispest sheets on our bed they were wonderful. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was ok. We paid £60 for our double room with breakfast so was ok for what we paid.

We had a lovely child free weekend so decided to have a winter weekend away. The hotel is old and a little rough round the edges but at £80 for 2 nights we were more than happy. Large room, great TV and amenities, very friendly staff, really clean and a lovely big bath for a long soak. Perfect we thought!... More

Nice big room, lovely sea view, no problem taking our labrador dog. Some dog friendly pubs around too if you want to venture out. It was quiet and peaceful but it was january! The spa is just down the hill and easy access to the beach.

I recently stayed at this hotel, the place is dog friendly about a 5-10 minute walk from the beach and is very accommodating, the staff were so polite and helpful which was refreshing, the only let downs i would say were the decor in the room and the room-service menu however overall it was a pleasant stay, i would recommend...
