4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I really enjoyed our stay at the Burlington. Our room was large, comfortable and quiet and we had a lovely couple of nights there. It certainly could have done with a bit of a makeover but somehow it didn't seem to matter. I would definitely recommend. Our 'deal' included food too and that was also excellent.

I love this hotel. We use it regularly for family to stay in and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are lovely, staff friendly ( especially the GM who works really hard to ensure exceptional service). Food is great. And all round fab hotel. A+++

We were in room 345 which was newly decorated and had all the abdicate equipment. The Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The waiter and staff at Dinner on... More

We had a break on a voucher which was very good value for money as the meals were excellent. The staff could not have been more friendly or more helpful. The location was perfect. An old Victorian building was quite beautiful but came with its challenges-heating temperamental and hot water variable. Even in a refurbished room the shower would not... More

We used a Buyagift voucher giving us a very reasonable two night break. When booking we requested an upgrade and a specific room from the hotel photos online but they couldnt promise this. What a lovely surprise to find we had our chosen room. Thank you. Although there was another building next to the sea front we could sit on... More

A friendly welcome. Large old hotel but very well kept with good Victorian features, on our visit it was quiet & reserved. Very clean room with a nice shower room. The food was good. The hotel was close to the sea but on top of the cliff. We travelled by train so used buses to get around, they are very... More

Upon arrival, seems very grand, in an idealic location. Arrived for Check In time, but along with others our room wasn't ready. Were moved room from initial allocation. Room good, but with no duvet, no milk & just seemed to lack those homely hotel comforts. Breakfast was a buffet, which wasn't what we expected but a good thing as could... More
