i stayed with my wife on the 10 th of may.the hotel was very clean and comfortable and the location is perfect for the shops and nightlife. while we were there a wedding was taking place in the function room but you couldnt hear it because of the excellant sound proofing. we really enjoyed the hotel food and it was very popular with the locals. i would reccomend this hotel to anyone.

The Bold Hotel was dreadful. There were no duvets on the bed, just a a cover on a overly soft bed. All I was given was another very heavy cover. The windows were draughty and there was no sound proofing. Police sirens continued until the early hours and every owrd could be heard from the street below. The bathroom was miserable and was supplied with the smallest piece of soap imaginable. The staff were polite and the breakfast OK but overall this is bad value for money.

Outrageously noisy, smelly, smoky. Need I say more? The pub downstairs is fine, but the rooms are old, outdated, and even in the "no smoking" area smell like smoke (and have ashtrays and matches in the room). The prices are way too high for what you get. The night we were there, there were people yelling in the hall and running up and down till 4 in the morning. It was like being in a bad movie. And no one from the hotel attended to it. Dirty diapers and glasses in the hallway. It's in a good location, and the included breakfast was good. But not worth spending the night.

  • Liked — the breakfast
  • Disliked — the rooms - dirty, noisy, smoky
  • Tips/Secrets — don't stay here

Stayed at the Bold Hotel this weekend for two evenings. When we first arrived about 8.30pm Friday night (Bank Holiday Weekend) the bar area was packed, really vibrant with a good mix of people.

We went upstairs to check into our room and although the floorboards were creaky and the decor in the hallways a bit dated we were plesently suprised when we got to our room. Being as we only paid £50 a night as we booked last minute the room was spacious with a rather large bed! It did turn out that this was due to the fact that it was two beds pushed together but this wasn't a problem as we were really comfy anyway. The bathroom was great, newly refurbished with extremeley clean bath and shower.

The staff in the bar were so friendly and chatty, extremely helpful, the bar manager even moved his car for us so we could take his space on the hotel car park. Everytime we got served the staff were really chatty and freindly which was so nice. We ate in the hotel (just in the bar not in the Bistro) on the Saturday night and the food was lovely.

All in all couldn't really fault this hotel, we had no problems whatsoever. Would stay again without a doubt and reccomend it to friends and family. Ideal location, right in the middle of all the shops, a stones throw from the sea front and plenty of nightlife and resturants around.

if your thinking of staying here go for it, its a great hotel.

  • Liked — The staff. So freindly and helpful.
  • Disliked — Can't think of anything - maybe the noise of drunken passers by at 3am!
  • Tips/Secrets — Book in here its a great hotel for a short break!
