This was our first time at the Cavendish, staying with some friends who had been before. We were very glad that they persuaded us to pay extra for a front seaview room. This was lovely, plenty of room, very large windows, very comfortable beds and good workdesk and separate table and chairs. Fortunately there was also a fan provided as... More

The hotel was over one hundred years old and looked it. The reception desk was awful we were kept waiting for at least twenty minutes. When I told the staff that there was no space in the car park because all of the empty spaces had reserved notices on them for various named people. When I first booked the reservation... More

Lovely seafront hotel. On arrival we were allocated a room at the rear of the hotel. We asked at reception for a sea view room if available. My husband was shown 2 rooms and we chose a huge room, with lovely balcony and bathroom. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

Spent a night there to show friends around. Rooms are fine, reasonable prices, helpful staff. Will definitely stay again. Rooms over looking the sea are best. Breakfast Is acceptable. Very close to pier and the band stand.

Things got off to a bad start: after a long drive we were ignored at Reception for over 20mins while a receptionist, watched by other staff members, struggled to check a guest-in. When we finally got attention and suggested they needed more reception staff to help with check-in we were told 'only 1 person in the hotel is trained to... More

The stay was very enjoyable, the hotel very good, the food excellent and the restaurant manager was first class. Her name was Elvira and she did a first class job, I commend her for her efforts. D.J.lawson.
