I visited this hotel for a charity fundraising event and was very impressed. I don't usually expect to much at mass catering events because they can be difficult to get right but I had no complaints here. The tables were well dressed and the function room was very inviting. The dinner comprised a three course meal which was well cooked... More

This Was NOT The case with one packet of shower gel. The towels were so hard and rough I would not dry a dog... More

I think some of the previous reviewers must have been staying at a different place. From the minute we arrived to the minute we reluctantly left everything was top notch and 5☆. The room (19) was spotless and beautifully decorated. We ate in the Grill Room and I had a three course meal for £5.95. Great value and delicious. Breakfast... More

I stayed here for one night and that was one night too much. The smell of drains throughout the hotel is disgusting. The rooms are old and dated and smell of damp and there was no hot water for a bath. The breakfast was ok but not even a proper spoon to stir your Luke warm insipid tea - just... More

First impressions of the hotel were not too bad until I walked through the main doors and hit with a wall of Fart. Seriously Staincliffe guys. Get your act together and do something about the smell of sewage and silver fish bugs in the bath. Lukewarm showers? Lovely view and lovely receptionist, Loads of Pontential.

A warm welcome to this seafront hotel. No lift up the stairs but an impressive creaky grand staircase leading to creepy corridors and ultimately to my room where someone had gone crazy with a bedroom stencil kit all over the walls. Fine for a one night stay. Food was great with large portions.

Lovel view but the smell throughout the hotel was foul. It smelled like a bursted sewer and has done for the last year I have been staying. I would stay more often but it's too stinky... Shame because the receptionist is so polite and helpful. Bless her, she has to work in this smell!! The chef seems keen to finish... More
