Meals excellent, 3rd night dinner included an extra fish course which was a nice surprise, to precede the tasty roast lamb. breakfast was fine - a good helping of prunes with cereal or porridge,...

It still maintains many of its original features which I love. We were not able to fault the hotel, so let me start telling you about all the good points. Firstly, it's position is...

Excellent location ideal for shops or a short walk to the beach. Food served very quickly no waiting and always hot especially when there was over 40 in our party. Very clean and roomy bedrooms. Friendly staff at all times. Provided a good nights sleep.

We stayed for one night in the summer for £114. The staff were very helpful from the start, we called to say we were running late for a wedding and the receptionist was kind enough to save us a parking space (extra £10) and to book us a taxi. Room was very clean and comfortable, good size, and didn't have...

A family run hotel where the owners have a big hand in the day to day running. The New Years dinner / party was excellent. The dining room was decorated well but not over the top. The food although only limited choice was excellent, A great experience enhanced by our waiter, who normally is a chef in the adjoining Arlington...

This is the third Christmas that we have stayed at The Whitehall. It is like no other hotel that we use. Firstly, it is family run with the family much in evidence. Sarah, one of the owners works tirelessly and leads from the front. The second unique factor is the staff. Over the three years we have stayed here, the...

After a great Turkey and Tinsel weekend last year my group decided to repeat the experience. We were not disappointed. Everything was as good as before and we all had a great time.
