just got back from a national holidays weekend at this hotel. The hotel is typical of an old sea-side hotel. The rooms are reasonably decorated and have all the facilities you need eg tea making hairdryers etc. The dining room is quite modern and the staff throughout the hotel are pleasant and friendly. The food is good and the hotel... More

At the time of our visit the hotel was going through a modernisation programme of the front of the hotel with scaffolding abound. The up-grade was also evident within the building with some room having already been modernised whilst other had not. There is no air conditioning at this hotel which for the UK generally isn’t a problem but for... More

May I just say another nice one of shearings hotels, they're a bit tired being victorian, but I've always found them clean & tidy the staff friendly and helpful if you need anything different nothings to much trouble for them. They've got food to suit everyone's needs, had a great stay would highly recommend the Dilkhusa hotel.

We've just returned from a short self drive break to this hotel. On the good side, the hotel location is great, being situated right on the main front of the resort. We paid extra for an upgrade to a more modern room. While the room was nicely decorated, it was cramped and small, with a tiny 'bathroom'. Breakfast was buffet... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the level seafront of this hugely popular Victorian seaside resort stands the welcoming Dilkhusa Grand Hotel. The hotel was originally a private house, bought by a Raj at the turn of the last century as a gift to his wife - Dilkhusa translates from Hindustani roughly as ‘House of the Happy Heart!’ The hotel overlooks the picturesque Runnymede gardens and is close to the Landmark theatre which attracts many national acts. It is also just a short walk from the bustling 10th-century harbour where Britain’s most famous living artist, Damien Hirst, owns a restaurant. The Dilkhusa has a well-appointed restaurant combining excellent hospitality and service. A spacious and comfortable entertainments suite provides the ideal setting in which to sit back and enjoy the acts at this friendly and sociable hotel. ... more   less
