“Great value for money ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We have just returned from this lovely b&b where the atmosphere and ambience of the hotel was incredibly friendly and relaxed.

We only stayed over night, however we found the bed to be comfortable, the room clean and spacious and the en-suite of satisfactory standard.

The hotel was quiet and the guests seemed to respect other residents.

This b&b is excellent value for money with a great breakfast selection with a full English provided too.

We found the staff very friendly, helpful and charming, nothing too much trouble.

We wish the owners every success for the future.

Our tip is for parking, use West Hill car park, £9 for 24 hours and a 2 min walk to the hotel.

Stayed here in May for 2 nights and I would have happily stayed longer. The owners were extremely friendly and always happy to help. The breakfast was of a good variety and the rooms were clean and boutique feeling. This hotel is still in the process of being refurbished and I am looking forward to seeing the difference when I next stay there.

I had a two night stay at the end of April and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is spotless, charming, lovely decor, relaxed atmosphere and nothing too much for Huw and Stuart to do to make you comfortable. Bar/lounge a lovely, comfortable room. Great breakfast, too. Hotel perfectly situated for beach, town and beyond. Heartily recommended. I will definitely be going back.

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel in Mid May during excellent spell of weather. Room was clean and everything needed was nicely placed to hand and functional. Huw and Manuel (yes Manuel) were ideal hosts and did everything they could to provide a pleasant stay. Huw even went out of his way to provide "politically incorrect" fried bread at breakfast. Decor in the communal areas is a bit quirky and some refurbishment of these areas was ongoing. Hotel is about 8 minutes walk to beaches and town centre. Hotel is excellent value for money and I wish new owners well in making further improvements in an incremental way.

Room Tip: Try for sea view

Spent a couple of nights bank holiday weekend and I can only repeat the positive praise of the other reviews. Huw made us very welcome. The place was spotless, breakfast excellent and the little bar was just the icing on the cake. We met a few fellow residents in the bar and we all had the same high opinion of the hotel. You can see the amount of effort that has gone into upgrading the premises and Huw and team deserve all the praise given. We normally stay in larger hotels (for the restaurant and bar facilities) but would not hesitate in returning to the Croydon.

Once again this small hotel has done us proud, the improvements since our last visit in 2013 have been exceptional, the addition of the Bar area is a master stroke,the extended breaksfast service combined with the addtional choice have only added to the value of this hotel, a credit to the new owners.

Room Tip: For a large family accomodation room one is ideal.

My partner and I visited The Croydon Hotel this week for a three night short break. We found the hotel very welcoming and friendly. We were in Room 3 which had a sea view. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and everything in working order. The hotel was placed in an ideal situation being close to the town and the promenades and beaches. Breakfast was really good. The only drawback was having to find a parking space in the road. We were lucky to do so.
