I had booked to stay here and payment was taken over 3 months ago. Then suddenly the week before the bank holiday weekend i receive a call to say they have over booked. This has now ruined my bank holiday weekend and is very unprofessional and not very honourable. I had to

The hotel is located in a beautiful part of the town, overlooking everything from the top of a big hill. So in terms of the aesthetics it is very good. However on my first morning of my stay, two staff members let themselves into my room and told me I was supposed to have

Good Afternoon Many Thanks for taking the time to leave some feedback with regards to your stay with us, I must say I read your comments with some level of Confusion. Our Reception team is often highlighted for their helpfulness with guests during their stay as are all our staff here at The Esplanade, I can see no reason why some provision such as calling a taxi to A&E or a paramedic had not taken place, however I must point out that it is well within any qualified first aiders rights to refuse to provide First-Aid there is no obligation for anyone outside of a medical profession to do so. I would also note that sustaining such an injury it would have been an advisable to remain where you were oppose to attempting to enter the hotel and risk worsening your injury. Naturally I'm apologetic to the injury you sustained, and wish you a speedy recovery, and Thank you again for the feedback you have left, albeit I regret the sentiment under which it was left. Kind Regards Ryan Johnson Front of House Manager

The location of The Esplanade is ideal since it is close to the town and only a short walk to the harbour. Our room was large with an interesting view across the tree lined Valley Rd. We were fortunate in finding a parking space each day.
