“good for what we paid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

we went in Jan/feb, out of season so a lot of the town was closed. the B&B was nice and comfy, very warm welcome from the owners when we arrived. we were left to do our own thing and were not disturbed. the breakfast was ok with choise of cereal and a cooked breakfast. (my chair broke whilst sitting on it) there are many toy dolls around the place but none in the bedroom. i would stay here again but haggle for a price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Its a nice hotel and you get what you pay for really. Its not a high end posh hotel, its a nice little family run hotel and they are very accommodating. The chuckie doll was funny, I think the dolls were nice and made the hotel look even better. The only thing that really let it down for me was the really small bathroom but the room was nice and cosy. Its only round the corner from the centre which was really convenient. Me and my friend loved this hotel and the staff were so nice, the bed was realy comfy as well. Had no issues with the hotel what soever, Location was good, service was good, and the room was good.

ok, very friendly. We found the decor very dated. It was a 5/10 minute walk into central area. If we went back to Skegness we would try somewhere else to stay. Dolls dotted around were weird, but everyone was very friendly.

We went for a weekend break, we found our room was dated and hygiene standards poor. No vacuuming under the bed, cobwebs in the bathroom, thick dust being hidden by the magazine rack. The door handle rattled every time a bus drove past the guest house and the door to the room itself was ill fitting. We could plainly hear other guests having conversations in their rooms. The first morning there we placed the "please clean room" sign on a door but on our return the only sign of cleaning was the replenishment of coffee and milk. Breakfast was exceptional but a shame only available between 8.30 and 900. The mock tudoresque decor did not live up to its images as promoted on the guide. The "tiny tears" doll collection did nothing to enhance the feel of the guest house. All in all thankfully Skegness had more to offer otherwise we would have left the day after our arrival!

Room Tip: Try others in the area - some offer a chance to look round and view before booking.

Right , here we go.

Our 100 yr old building here in Skegness is showing a few signs of it's old age which of course we all do as we get older. Age reveals rattles and wonky joints but none so bad that life can't happily carry on or cause us to worry !
With many guests more than happy with our hygiene i sometimes wonder how the cobweb family that reside with us on a regular basis manage to leave their evidence so unknowingly to us and for guests to observe but obviously can happen as in all of our homes !
Unfortunately we are unable to specify as to how loud guests can have a conversation within their room and hope that any overheard conversations are acceptable and do not contain any disturbing subject for others to hear.
Breakfast 8-30 -9.00 am suits the majority of our guests who wish to be up enjoying their time away but is not compulsory for those who wish to choose otherwise.
Each day the guests room on request are serviced. This includes tea, coffee etc replenishment, bins emptied etc and any other requirements deemed necessary to make the guests comfortable within their room without disturbing personal belongings.
Any pictures shown regarding our guest house are actual photos of the building inside and out therefore no mis- interpretatation can be made of our accommodation.We do not have a brochure but do display many photos on our booking sites.
The collection of vintage dolls and prams displayed on only the ground floor are of great interest to many guests and are very in-fitting with the character of the building .

The Sunningdale, friendly welcome when i arrived, left to get on with my stay without interruption, had a small double room, and it was small, but i was informed of this prior to my stay. The room was clean, bed clean and very comfortable, breakfast was very nice, served by nice people. The only criticism I have is the toys. There are two beautiful silver cross prams in the reception area, and another in the lounge I think, and a rocking horse, and I lost count of the dolls scattered around. In the breakfast room there must have been about thirty of them. It was a bit weird but apart from that the hotel was small and friendly. A bit old fashioned but fine. It did the job for me.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first floor, the stairs are steep.

Went for a 2 night stay at this b+b. We arrived early but was allowed to leave our luggage there so we could make the most of the day, was made to feel very welcome and the b+b has plenty of character about it. Our 4 year old daughter loved the dolls, prams and the rocking horse. Breakfast was excellent not a drop of grease on the plate will stay again and thank you from the Tyrrell family
