“Brill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2009

A wonderful place with one of the nicest families you could ever meet. We received a very warm welcome, especially from Marie and Kids, before we'd even got inside! We were given nice clean rooms with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits which were restocked each day.
The children were extremely friendly making you feel more like a big sister and brother than a guest, and made the trip very cheerful (thanks Amy, Lauren and James).
The site of the hotel was superb as it is in walking distance from the pleasure beach, south and central piers, and it was easy to find on your way back of the night-time.
Breakfast was superb (thumbs up to Andy) as your plate arrived depending on what you preferred.
As I once visited this as a B&B with previous owners I must say that it is by far a higher standard than it was before, and I highly recommend it.
I found it very sad to leave and hopefully will be visiting again sometime in the future!

Dear VJ,
We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us in October with your friends. Thankyou for the review, as it is interesting for us to read especially when it is from guests who have stayed previously with previous owners. It is great to see that you like all the changes we have made to the hotel and that our efforts have not gone unnoticed.
We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Regards, Andy, Marie & Family

Arrived at this hotel quite late in the evening and could not have asked for a warmer welcome. Marie, Andy and family were on hand to welcome us, helped us find a car parking space and helped us unload our luggage from the car and took it to our rooms. Breakfast is served hot, fresh and is very enjoyable. Arties is a well run hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and am hopefully returning very soon. James, Amy and Lauren are absolutely wonderful and very helpful children, my daughter fell in love with them and they are now keeping in touch.

once again the welcome i got on arrival was second to none. this was my fifth visit to Arties this year, the food was of an excellent standard, cooked to perfection and ample portions. I was treated like a member of the family and nothing was too much trouble, Andie & Maria & the three children, James, Lauren and Amy are a fantastic family. I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone.
Well done Andie & family, I look forward to seeing you again at christmas.

We had a weekend at Arties in October, its a good job it was only for a weekend and not for a week, We was shocked when we was taken to our room it was a very very small box room that had a double bed with a single bunk bed on top that didnt seem that safe ( its a good job we can laugh about it ) but i must say all though the room was small it was very clean, I must all so comment on the breakfasts they was actually the best part of the Hotel couldn't fault the breakfast at all.

Dear Take a Chance

We are sorry that you did not enjoy parts of your stay at our hotel for your weekend break with your family.
It is unfortunate that the room was of an unsatisfactory standard for you, but i can assure you that our bunk beds are safe and checked regular for safety and stability.
As with all our guests, we check that the rooms are satisfactory for you so that if there is a problem, we can do our utmost to rectify it whenever possible. We find it dissapointing when guests do not say anything to us during there stay, but feel that they have to express there feelings on tripadvisor when it is too late for us to solve any problems that they may have during their visit.
We accept that Tripadvisor is for your independent view of your holiday, but would be gratefull if guests would express there feelings to us upon leaving or during their stay so that we can rectify things for future guests.
We always endure to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible whilst staying at ARTIES, and continually check with guests if there are any problems whatsoever, but if we are not told of a problem, then we are unable to try to make your stay more enjoyable and comfortable.
We are pleased that the food was up to our normal excellent standards and that you all enjoyed it.
Once again please accept our appologies and we hope that you may after all consider us again sometime in the future.

Regards Andy, Marie & family

A family run hotel is what we booked and a family hotel is what we got. From arrival to departure Marie and Andy welcomed us to there home! We had a great weekend (even with bad weather) A real family environment with Marie and Andys special children making our stay even more entertaining (they are a credit to you). Sorry Marie and Andy but we will be back - Lock the Doors!!! p.s Andy your breakfasts take some beating.
