We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel, for a weekend break, utilising one of the hotel deals - offering a half board package.
The Hotel is well situated on the coast road with very little traffic noise, though unusually the main entrance & car park is on a one way street at the rear of the Hotel.
Check-in was efficient and we were allocated room 3 on the first floor (though not shown to it).
The room was on the small side, but adequate for a weekend stay. Though exceptionally clean, the décor (carpet & wallpaper especially) would benefit from being updated – this is opposed to all public areas, which are immaculately decorated & luxuriously furnished!!!
The major negative for us was the en-suite bathroom, this again was small, but well decorated & very clean – unfortunately it only had a bath with a hand held shower. Being 6” tall I was unable to stand upright in the bath without hitting my head on the ceiling & the bath being quite deep, makes it difficult for getting in & out especially for those who are not quite as mobile……. In this day & age, I would expect all hotels to have an en-suite shower facility in each room – rather than just a bath with hand held shower - We also heard other occupants also bemoaning the lack of proper shower facilities!
As I mentioned before all the public areas: bar, dining room & lounges are exceptionally well decorated, well lit, cozy and comfortable.
The menu for the dining room was nicely presented with a good selection of choices for each coarse, the food itself was of a high standard, though portion sizes on the Friday evening were erring towards the small size, Saturdays portion control was more generous. The waiting staff are highly commended on their professionalism throughout service for all meals, this praise is inclusive of the bar services also.
Overall a very enjoyable stay, excluding the minor items highlighted above
Request an en-suite stand in shower, and larger room for any more than a weekend stay.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the hotel. We do have some rooms that we cannot unfortunately put a stand up shower in due to ceiling heights. Room 3 is one of these and the shower in this room is just meant as an attachment. We have many rooms with a stand up shower over the bath or a seperate shower cubicle so please do ask for one of these if you choose to book again, which we sincerely hope you will.

The land at the rear is all owned by the hotel. There is no room on the sea front of the hotel for a car park unfortunately and the entrance being near the car park seems the most practical answer. The layout stretches back to when Lord Wentworth used to own the estate.
Overall I am happy you enjoyed your stay and hope we can welcome you back very soon
