As soon as we walked into the Bay Prince of Wales hotel, we were made to feel very welcome. This was our third visit to the hotel, and Mel knew us straight away (not sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing!!) Once again we really enjoyed our stay and will be returning at some point.

I am sorry you felt the need to post this comment but having experienced your visit here in April I am surprised it took you so long, not because your comments are correct but because of your manner whilst you were here.

Along with two friends we stayed for two nights and enjoyed it ! We also tried to ensure a ground floor room,due to there being no lift, but were unable to do so. However on arrival we were given rooms 9 and 10 which had just been re-furburbed,on the ground floor. Twin beds but no problems. The rooms were fresh... More

We happened to be passing whilst looking for a Nursing Home where our friend is a resident and stopped for a quick lunch. We were met in reception by the owner, who proved to be very friendly and "chatty". We ordered their "two for a tenner lunch" which proved to be very good value. Highly recommended!
