Booked the Best Western for my husband's 40th birthday after being let down by 2 other hotels in the area. It's a good old fashioned seaside hotel - not great looking from the outside but lovely inside and great location (10 mins walk to Rocksalt where we had dinner). Lovely double room, nice classic décor, comfy bed, bathroom ok but... More

I was very ready to like this hotel. I liked the location, right on the seafront. However, I am on crutches at the moment and it wasn't clear where we could park in order to drop me off. I think we will have a parking ticket to pay. I went to book in. No help was offered at all with... More

So, this is a really old building with character but it like a maze so you must pay careful attention to your direction of travel! The rooms were clean and tidy albeit a little hot in the humid weather of ours. The cleaner was like a whirlwind in the morning! The staff were polite and helpful BUT...for £10.95 the breakfast...

Not a bad hotel, but a lot of room for improvement. The rooms are big enough with comfortable beds and adequate bathrooms, but there is a strange, eerie atmosphere in the hotel. I've never seen more than half a dozen other people in there, and they are all of the retirement age. The staff are quite friendly and helpful, but... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel to attend a function at the leas cliff hall. Welcome to a Edwardian area. The rooms are comfortable though not that stylish but so clean. Despite it being a bit a rabbit warren of corridors to the rooms it is surprisingly quiet. Plenty of staff about always friendly and... More

This is an old hotel with a superb position. We had our dogs with us, en route for Spain and they were happy to accommodate. We were given a twin room on the 3rd floor with lovely views out to sea and over to France. But we also had a determined gull we named Arthur, as it refused to move... More

We have never had an overnigh stay before heading off to Switzerland so this was a good experience for us. The hotel and staff made the event much more enjoyable the only fault we could find was parking is a bit of tricky job otherwise good value.

We stayed here for four nights with Canadian relatives who were travelling on to a cruise from Dover. The hotel was clean, in a lovely position, with lovely staff, We only ate in the restaurant once as we were out a lot but the food was really nice and reasonably priced as were the drinks in the bar. We walked... More

Stayed at this hotel as it was easy to find on the internet and also parking is available nearby. Shame the age of the building and the upkeep let it down. It’s a lovely old Victorian looking building, typical sea side in its design and feel. It’s just a shame it probably takes a lot of looking after so I... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel 12 years ago having walked out of an absolutely awful hotel nearby. We remembered it as being a good hotel and our memories were proved to be correct. Nicely placed at the entrance to the lovely Leas area, the hotel is spotlessly clean. Our room was plenty large enough with a comfortable... More
