4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Spent 4 nights dinner bed and breakfast at the Headway. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was good with plenty of choice each night. The communial areas were bright and clean, entertainment every night of good standard. We found the beds hard and uncomfortable also the shower in our room was run off the taps and turned from hot to cold whilst running. But the rooms were clean, decoration needs updating but not that important. Overall the Glentons coach trip to Headway was a very good standard.

I have just returned from 4 nights at the Headway as part of a Gelnton Coach Tour. Yes, the decor in the bedrooms and bathrooms is dated, but the communal areas are bright and fresh and the whole hotel is spotlessly clean. Staff were cheerful and efficient and food was outstanding. The entertainment was much better than I expected it to be and overall the Headway and Glenton provided excellent value for money. I don't know how they do it for the price.

Stayed here one night for a party. Have to say it was like a total 1970s timewarp and bad impression from the moment we arrived. To begin with, there was no one on reception on a Saturday afternoon and after hovering around for about 10 minutes finally someone appeared from the bar area, with no apology. Then we couldn't believe it when she started talking to someone in the connectibng office who had obviously been there all along totally ignoring us! The rooms were so outdated, I was scared to use the shower or sleep under the bedspread, cider in the function room tasted mouldy and the food was very average. Don't go there is my advice! I think you would have to be over 80 and / or have very low standards to be happy in this hotel!

I have to say the service on offer was great and the price paid for staying was well worth it!
The rooms were very clean and pleasant to stay in. The highlight of my stay was an accordion player by the name of Frank McGregor, his patter and wide selection of music catered for everybody’s tastes. Out of all the entertainment we had Frank was by far the best they had on offer. Will stay again!

I recommend the people who deal with the bookings of entertainment at the Headway to book Frank McGregor more often as none of the other entertainers match that mans skills. 5* all round, highly recommended! Will be stopping there again!

We stayed here for one night on the 14th January 2012 as part of a mystery tour.
The staff were excellent and friendly and the hotel was very clean with a good choice of food.
The location and sea view enhanced our stay and I would definetly use this hotel again and would also reccomend it to friends.
As for decor issues people should realise the money for upgrading many British hotels will never be available as it will never be recouped by the hotel and personally cleanliness is more important to me than decor.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view on the second floor, the views over the bay are beautiful

My friend and I stayed here from Friday October 14th till Monday October 17th 2011 as members of a Coach party.
Our twin room had a seaview on the second floor, and it was spotless. The food choice and quality was tremendous, and the staff were so helpful and polite. Nothing was a bother to them whatsoever.
There were a few creaky floorboards, but not enough to waste our break. The entertainment was different every night, but the hotel was quiet, as it is now out of season.
The atmosphere in the Hotel was very upbeat, and this is down to the positive relationships that the staff have with each other.
I would certainly recommend this Hotel as one to visit. My friends and I will certainly go back next Spring.
