Firstly, one should say that there is nothing intrinsically wrong with this hotel. It is in a great location, the rooms are clean & comfortable - although ours was small. However, it charges luxury hotel rates and it doesn't deliver. For example, most hotels charging in excess of £200 per night B&B provide extras like bathrobes & slippers free. Here... More

Went for lunch on a beautiful sunny day, ate in the restaurant and not on the terrace as there were no seats available in the shade. The restaurant was virtually empty aside from us. In the main the food was very good, the lobster salad was the smallest portion of lobster, no more than four very small bites but the... More

Yet again after waiting over 15 mins for menus I went in and asked to be served . Manageress said she would send out menus immediately . Another 20 mins later ( after I had... More

We had two very pleasant nights at the Brudenell Hotel, which we found very comfortable and contemporary in decor, The receptionist was exceptional and organised an up grade for us so that we had sea views, we didn't eat at the restaurant for our evening meals prefering to travel to country pubs. but the breakfasts were of very high quality....

We had a marvellous short break at The Brudenell. The staff were very welcoming and seemed genuinely pleased to be working for the hotel. We chose a deluxe sea view room which meant superb views and we were lulled to sleep by the waves lapping against the beach. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The only downside was a... More

Our annual jaunt to the Brudenell is always a happy return. Amazing location, comfortable rooms, gorgeous food and superb service. The dedicated staff are so kind, helpful and accommodating - from room service to particular food requirements (quite a relief if you have a fussy eater in the family). Worth a visit to the restaurant alone, but if you're going,... More

We had a generally very pleasant stay at The Brudenell. It's perfectly situated on the beach with a nice terrace where you can eat/drink and take in the sea air. We dined at the hotel restaurant on one night which was pleasant but not as good as the meals we had in local restaurants on other nights. The breakfast was... More

Not 4* IMO. Room was small and unbelievably hot. No air con, a small fan that was totally inadequate. Shower was pathetic. G & T was £15, they are £17 in The Ritz, I know where I would rather go! Only had breakfast which was nice but £190 for one night was just frankly not worth it. I wouldn't go... More

We popped in for a quick coffee, and to enjoy the seafront location. The waiting staff all seemed a bit bemused and lost - we ordered three times, whilst other customers were turning up, ordering, drinking their drinks, paying and leaving in the time it took us to still not get our drinks. No system in place - surprising at... More
