The Old Colonian is in a fantastic location, close to the beach and pier. it benefits from a great pub / restaurant and is competitively priced. However, after a long and tiring day of working, we finally reached the hotel and rang the bell at reception. Nothing. We held on for a few minutes then rang again. After a few... More

Not impressed at all. We just wanted a pub lunch with a pint so ordered a sandwich and a jacket potato with cheese and beans. The sandwich was awful, very small and the chicken filling was like rubber. It came with a very small portion of chips. The baked potato was again very small and tasteless. The bill was over... More

Just spent the night at the Old Colonial the postives are its location right on the seafront near the Pier, good parking and the young lady on reception was outstanding. Polite and very helpful probably the best thing about our stay. The negatives would have to be the room we were allocated, which although acceptably clean and tidy and comfortable... More

Stayed for one night, staff were all very helpful. The room was clean, the only way I could fault it, it was very warm. The location is excellent 200 meters from the pier and across the road from the beach. Best feature car park next to the hotel and cost of the room included parking fee. Might not be suitable...

Very busy, short staffed, they had run out of pie only had one left of Steak and Kidney and one of Chicken and Mushroom. Were told we had a 40 min wait although the food arrived within 30min, served by a surly waitress. Pie was dry the filling questionable, chips slightly warm. Very disappointed would not eat there again. Inside... More

Good location right on the seafront, 2-4-1 value in the pub/restaurant, very large room - plenty of room for our 4 suitcases! - with large wardrobe and drawer space. Good desk/workspace with wi-fi free of charge. Very helpful staff carried our very heavy suitcases (our 2-night stay was part of a longer holiday) up to the second floor. Be aware... More

Used this bar/ restaurant for 3 nights. Was with a large group of friends and 2 of us decided to have the 14oz rib eye steak with all the trimmings as it seemed good value at the price. Worked out at £8.00 each. At that price I didn't expect much, but the food when it arrived was simply amazing. A... More

I read the reviews on here and was a little unsure about eating here. We had eaten here in the past when we visited Weston. I had the pork loin with black pudding, it was delicious. My husband had the jalapeño burger & enjoyed that too. The staff were friendly and it has a nice atmosphere. It is a 2for1... More
