We booked a late Xmas break at the Esplanade Hotel, and managed to get the last sea view room on the second floor. The room had a great view, and was warm, and comfortable, the only let down was the double mattress had seen better days, and the bathroom a bit cramped. Otherwise we had a great break, location excellent,... More

TV in room only picked up a handful of stations the rest had no signal. The central heating made the room too hot at times as we had a mild... More

Another great New Year stay. Yes the bathrooms are small but they are clean, as are the towels, and the water is hot. My husband and I are average size so managed o.k. More importantly the welcome is huge from the management and staff and that is what makes or breaks a holiday. The bedrooms were great and the beds... More

We booked with Shearings as independent travellers to this hotel for a Christmas Break, having stayed at other Bay hotels we anticipating a very nice few days, this was not the case. On arrival we were greeted by the reception staff and shown where our room was. To say that the room was tired was a compliment, the bathroom was... More

Just had a 5day break with Shearings by coach. I think the coach was probably one of the oldest in their fleet and was uncomfortable , but the driver,Vance, was fine and quite informative about the area, The hotel was typical Shearings, clean and tidy but rather tired and needs some money spending on it. The restaurant was fine and... More
