We booked this hotel for a 2 night break via a Groupon deal and for the price we paid we never expected to have such a perfect stay.
We were warmly welcomed by the lovely owner Huw who was so helpful and friendly, what a nice start to our weekend break. Although we had arrived much earlier than the check in time we were told our rooms were ready and to make ourselves at home. We had booked rooms 5 and 7, a small double and a large double for the 3 of us. Both of the rooms were spotless and very tastefully decorated with nice comfy beds and plenty of storage. The bathrooms were quite small but as they are shower rooms they were more than adequate and like the rest of the hotel they were immaculate.
We had a quick look around before heading out. The hotel guest lounge is gorgeous! So beautifully decorated with some really fab artwork. The lounge has a tv and bar and although we never got around to using it, it was a very inviting and relaxing place to chill out in. I will definately make use of it on my next visit.
The hotel is in a wonderful location, just a few minutes walk to the beautiful beach and the town centre with its great selection of shops, bars and restaurants. You can park your car in the street outside the hotel for free and just forget about it during your stay here if you wish as everything is so accessible on foot or by bus. We did just that and enjoyed the nice walks along the promenade and around the town.
We slept like logs during our stay, the hotel was so quiet and with the lovely comfy beds and good quality bedding it was just the ticket for a restful nights sleep.
Breakfast was served in the bright and airy dining room on the lower floor. The room is again beautifully decorated with some lovely touches and was such a nice relaxing place to begin the day. The breakfast was just fab, there were nice cereals(the muesli was delicious) fresh orange juice and yoghurts. We were served by a polite and friendly young guy who bought us tea and coffee and toast. We had our breakfasts cooked to order by Huw and they were so good, we all come out sufficiently stuffed to the brim!
I had a look at the outside garden area which was a little oasis of calm and would be a really nice place to sit and relax.
Every member of staff we met at The Croydon Hotel were exceptionally friendly, polite and helpful, such lovely service makes such a difference to your holiday and this hotel has it in spades.
My only gripe was that we didn't stay longer, I felt at home from the minute we arrived right until we left.
I couldn't fault a thing about this lovely hotel, go and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
So a huge thank you to Huw and the team at The Croydon Hotel for a wonderful stay and we can't wait to come back soon.
Jane, Mark and Enya
