Lovely clean, big rooms with seaside view. Facilities worked well and we were glad to have free wifi. Overall, we had a comfy and quiet night's sleep. Breakfast had a nice varied choice of cooked, vegetarian and cereal and the staff were friendly. I would return again.

Basic holiday hotel no frills. Clean and in good location on the seafront. In process of being refurbished. Rooms are basic but all en suit not very big and lack of hanging space for clothes. Cooked breakfast is very good but lacks choice. same every day?

This hotel has had more than its fair share of mixed reviews, I stayed at the Esplanade hotel for a few days & was exceptionally pleased with everything from the very warm welcome from Charlotte the assistant manager upon check-in to the breakfast which was superb & really tasty. The hotel bar was pleasant enough although the gentleman serving could... More
