I have just returned from this hotel along with my partner, son & 2 friends. We had minimal expectations due to the reviews on here but was extremely happy with our Hotel choice !The Hotel externally is very pretty with ample parking, its a pretty long walk into Skegness (around 15-20 mins) but that suited us as it was a nice evening and was nice to work off any over indulgences. We checked into room 10 which was a nice fresh looking room with tasteful Teal & Brown decor, beds were comfortable, nice toiletries, complimentary water, Tea & Biscuits, thick fluffy towels etc but the most impressive thing was the cleanliness, it was SPOTLESS clean. The only thing that has held this back from a higher score is the hallway decor which is old & shabby with peeling wallpaper and fills you with a sense of dread as you check in as that's what you expect to carry through into the room, my guess is that these areas are next on the list to receive some TLC. The staff were friendly and the bar area and grounds are pleasant.
The only warning I would give is that there was a wedding on and the hotel was over run with guests and a loud disco, we were fine with this and just went to bed after it finished at midnight, however if you are an 'early to bed' person, you may want to check if there are any functions on first. Overall we were really chuffed with The Vines and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
