Recently visited with a large group of lady friends, first impressions on arrival were very poor due to poor repair of the building, however we did get a welcome cuppa. All areas were clean and tidy. The most upto date area being the Restaurant which appears to have been recently upgraded on decor to a 70s theme. Service on first... More

It's cheap and nasty. Don't stay here if you can afford anywhere else. It smells. It's dirty. The staff are completely useless. Apart from these minor problems it was a wonderful experience. ***********************************************************************************************************

Im afraid this once grand and charming hotel ( As I remember it 45 years ago) has indeed seen much better days. This was a trip down memory lane and after reading the reviews was not suprised to find it in a rather sad and shabby state, however that could have been overlooked if it wasnt for the rather dangerous...

I don't understand why at 2.30 pm we try eat something in the pub's hotel and a member of the staff said sorry we don't... More

If you're looking for your usual chain type hotel this isn't it - it's a throwback to the 70s with a bit of modern tinkering - the Marlborough is a collection of old houses joined together by a rabbit warren of staircases and archways - we were supposed to have a double Seaview but were upgraded to the honeymoon suite...

My partner and I wanted to have a night away. After looking at reviews we decided to try this hotel. The room smelt, there was wallpaper peeling from the walls. We moved the television to try and get reception and the back of it was thick with dust which then flew everywhere!! I felt dirty just being there. We stayed... More

Hotel has seen better days which were a long long time ago. The fixtures and fittings are old and worn and the whole hotel needs renovated. The food is average but edible. The one saving grace are the staff who are very good and can't do enough to help.
