First went to the Expanse with my parents - must have been around 1965. Then again, many times throughout my teens, for our honeymoon in 1989, my mother's last trip in 2001, and again this week for our 25th. after not having been for fourteen years. Oh yes, it's changed! But still just as brilliant as I remember it. The... More

I have stayed here many times and have a real fondness for the hotel. Great single room this time (wonderful sea view) only problem was not being able to turn down or off the radiator. It was boiling right through the night so had 2 bad nights. Hopefully with the renovations this will be solved. Otherwise staff and food were... More

We stayed here in 2012 (no way to indicate this on the review however) and I got a late booking for a double room (plus 4-year-old in our own cot) for dinner, bed and breakfast for £125 which I thought was excellent. The food was very good, the breakfast was plentiful and the hotel staff were very polite and friendly.

...but every time we stay it seems a shame not to confirm it's still as good. It's brilliant to find a grand old hotel still in private hands and it's encouraging to see a progressive programme of improvements to what is a fairly old building now. As always, staff friendly, room clean (and newly decorated) and breakfast fantastic. I will... More

Booked last minute at a good price. This hotel is a little bit tired in places, but it was a great stay, well worth the money and would definitely visit again. The receptionist was helpful and friendly and the marine bar was a really nice bar, again, friendly staff. Great sea view from room 32.

It has been some years since I last stayed at The Expanse but little has changed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is great. I was only there for one night as I had a function to attend in the town but it was a pleasant stay and would recommend... More

At £80 for a sea view double in January, you were definitely paying for the view. Room 41 is tiny, the bed was uncomfortable and instead of a duvet had a couple of old horse blankets and so we were very cold in the night.

Breakfasts excellent, Views superb, staff always helpful. Simply a great place to stay. Apparently reviews must be more than 200 characters to count, but as in many other cases brevity is a virtue, and verbosity simply self indulgence.

The sea view is outstanding but the hotel although clean and friendly is fairly basic. The mattress was very poor, having a very definite slope from the centre to the edges. Breakfast was nothing special.
