“"Great location"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Great location in the centre of a buzzing seaside town. Stanwell House is a lovely hotel that delivers quality in every aspect with such style. Whether you have a simple burger with a nice pint of Japanese beer in the conservatory/ or diner in the restaurant with its great selection of choice. (including some lovely fish dishes)

Wouldn't say this is in my top ten but it's a must to visit if your in the area.

“Lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Stayed at the hotel from Firday 13 July to Sunday 15th. Had a meal on the Friday evening in the Bistro. The menu was a la carte with small but beautifully flavoured portions. It was very quiet when we arrived at 7.30 with us being the only two eating but a larger party and another couple arrived later. The service and staff were brilliant and would recommend for a special meal.

“inexecrable food in fish restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

First course musselswere uncooked as only half were open. The seafood platter had defrosted prawns that were mushy. The plaice was over cooked and after three attempts to serve unsatisfactory wine we settled for a lowly Kiwi plonk.
we will not be back.

Room Tip: we only ate there so can't comment on rooms
