A group of 9. Friendly and helpful staff, but the place needs a lot of work. Between us we had little heating, dirty sheets, dirty mattresses, filthy carpets, stale bedding and very few (in one room none!) working lightbulbs. Several of the party slept fully clothed on top of the beds as the sheets smelled and looked dirty. Shower trays...

Fawlty Towers is very conveniently located within walking distance of all the places of interest to tourists. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Every morning we were provided with a generous breakfast.

Awful room, breakfast was awful half only was cooked fully napkin full of hairs black bits floating in the milk jug and the tea was too strong from the pot, musty smell as soon as you walk through the front door, scruffy looking staff, only one good thing was free car park.

They have got bed bugs. Me and my husband, have bites. Looked at night with touches to find little disgusting bugs in a stained mattress. We were horrified. We wanted to leave in the middle of the night but could not as we had two younger kids fast asleep. We had the night from hell. The room and bathroom was...

A very friendly and comfortable stay breakfast was excellent. The place itself is in need of some tlc in the decoration department ,but for the price it's ok. Rooms were clean and comfortable and you can see where they are updating. It has a great location for shops and beach.

Unfortunately my friend booked this one without checking any reviews. If this isn't the worst place in Britain I would hate to see what is. The whole place absolutely reeked of cooking fat to the point of suffocation- I am not exaggerating. It was filthy and stains were on the carpet, walls, ceiling and bedding. The decor was dated and...

We stayed at this hotel 14th August. It isn't luxury but you don't want to spend holiday in hotel. It has all you need. Breakfast was lovely. Lady who served breakfast was so nice. Wouldn't recommend if you're disabled. Gent who saw us in was very friendly and helpful. Not luxurious but get what you pay for.
