“Definately not be back!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011

Previous descriptions of the male proprietor I would say are bang on the money miserable, ignorant, abusive, overbearing and very very unpleasant!!!! .Definately no meet & greet and customer service skills and definately no sense of personal hygiene from him. I got the distinct feeling he was deliberately trying to sabotage his own business for some bizzar reason. However, his wife I thought (and the rest of my family agree) was absolutely lovely!!!! could not do enough for us and made a excellent attempt at trying to make up for her husbands incredible number of shortcomings. She was the complete opposite of him and it was a genuine pleasure to have met her.

The rooms were adequately decorated but well maintained on a daily basis by his wife. I felt a real sense of sadness for his wife as she obviously values their business far more than her husband, putting in an extreme amount of effort to counteract the distructive behaviour of her husband.

The additional marks given regarding service and value have been bumped up due to the efforts of the female proprietor. Otherwise service and Value would have been terrrible.

Don't spoil the reason you are visiting Bridlinghton by staying here at this so called 4* Hotel as shown on the entrance plaque by the front door. This can only be classed as a 2* guest house at a push. The Female proprietor prefered not to speak unless prompted. We did our best and actually told her we felt sorry for her being party to The Male proprietor who was in a class of his own, automatically assumes that every guest adorning his door is to be the butt of his deplorable insults and humour (if thats what it can be described as) even before they step foot off the pavement. His bad language could easily offend the faint hearted as could his constant demeaning reference to the female race. I totally agree with everything said by 'travelly' below and agree with nothing said by 'apcpac'. The breakfast was atrocious from the taste of the tea/coffee to the inedible food. The rooms although clean and newly decorated were cluttered, old fashioned and damp. The ensuites were dated an inadequate by todays standard for a so called "4* hotel". And as for even trying to open the entrance door, well that failed by all guests barring one. He must have had the only key that fitted and worked. The rest of us had to ring the bell and disturb the sleeping tyrant for yet more abuse because we were all totally useless by his standards at operating the key in his front door. I could go on, but would just like to say, spare yourselves the torture, ask around for word of mouth and book elsewhere. Don't spoil your special visit to the Spa as we did by staying here.

Management were most unwelcoming and rude. Poor service in whole and I would not be willing to recommend this hotel to any family or friends.
