The entertainment on all three nights... More

Just returned from a Bank Holiday break at this hotel. All I can say is that it was OK and that you get what you pay for! Our room was clean and tidy - though the bathroom was far too small - I could not wash my hair in the basin with the door shut, and had I been a... More

Stayed hear for 4 nights hotel very dated and in need of a good refurbishment. Food was ok but nothing to rave about. Ensuite was very small and desperately needed refurbishment. If this was my main holiday for the year I would have been really disappointed

The food was very good, with full waitress service and the bed was comfortable. We had entertainment on 3 of the 4 nights of our stay, which was very... More

Having just spent 8 days at the Esplanade I would say that it is not the best of Shearings Hotels. At the moment they are refurbishing parts of the hotel with more to follow. Our room which was in the basement had been refurbished but the bathroom was just a botched job with old sink / toilet, door that did... More

We have just had a 7 day break in a sea view room which we found clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and the service from the staff who worked really hard to cater for everyone was brilliant (especially Rebecca). Paying for a parking space is ideal so we could go off and enjoy ourselves and feel free. We... More
