The Esplanade is situated overlooking the South Beach. It has uninterrupted views towards Caldy Island. We stayed in a Family Room which was very comfortable, tastefully furnished and clean. It is within easy walking distance of the town. The Breakfast was delicious, with something to cater for every taste. There were cereals, a bowl of fresh fruit, porridge on request... More

Hotel staff made us feel very welcome and very friendly, especially as we had to postpone the original week from last year to this year, this was accommodated without any... More

Hi , Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay, and yes we are blessed with an amazing location. The bed is a 4ft 6 in, standard double. But I agree if you sleep in a large bed they seem very small. There should not have been a problem with your shower so we will look... More

Around the side of this hotel is the cafe. Great ambiance lovely views over the beach sea to the monks island. Had my usual cream tea but have to say the couple next to us had some tasty sandwiches which looked great made me wish I had ordered them.
