“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I was a bit nervous after seeing the reviews on here by some people especially about the water pressure! I stayed for 3 nights in a single room, But due to the fact that my room was right next to the generator I asked to move the next day and they happily obliged and put me in a double at no extra charge. The Garden restaurant is superb and I definitely recommend going half board. As for the water pressure issues, the first room I stayed in had a fantastic shower , the second room had a bath and overhead shower, I don't understand what people are complaining about. It is an old building but there is still enough water pressure to enjoy a decent bath or shower in my opinion. Staff were very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the building are near the generator. It is on until about 10 pm and on again at...

We have just returned after spending 2 nights at this charming sea front hotel..it was my daughters birthday and on arrival we were allocated a beautiful sea view twin room..it was on the 2nd floor no 33..tea/coffee facilities..flat screen tv..bathroom was small but clean and modern ..we would have liked an electric shower..the water took a long time to get through but was hot and plentifull..the breakfast was excellent continental or full english from the menu..the evening set 3 course meal was superb.. we upgraded to a bottle of wine for £8..we enjoyed a fabulous cream tea in the bar overlooking the sea ..the hotel has plenty of car space and is walking distance to the town centre along the sea front..or a taxi was £4..the staff were exceptional..from the receptionist..restaurant staff..bar and cleaning..they were polite..friendly and the attention to detail was impressive..a credit to the management ..overall.. i would recommend the cottonwood boutique hotel..it has a quirky charm of its own and is more than worthy of its 3 stars...

Room Tip: high floor.. sea view ..rooms near the stairs and lift can be noisy

This was our first stay at this hotel on arrival staff was helpful and showed us to our room we stayed at the hotel with another couple and booked two double rooms together when we arrived we thought we would be put in the same sort of room and same place but how wrong was we we had a nice room newly refurbished at the front with a sea view but the bath that was tiny and was unable to have a relaxing wash in and not a proper shower to compensate then the other couples room was at the other end of the hotel and was cold and decorated in the 70's not nice and wasn't a double it was a family room with three beds other than this let down overall good stay just shame about the rooms.

This was our second stay, and we were very disapointed. The shower was a dribble and poor temperature.
The room was small and cramped, and we had paid extra for a sea view, which was stunning but the room was tiny.
The bed was uncomfortable and the towels very small.
On Sat eve there was a party which went on until midnight with a poor quality sound system making our room vibrate. The manager took the price of a couple of drinks off our bill to say sorry, but as we hadn't had much sleep, it was a nice gesture but with all the other issues it did feel a bit hollow
We won't be going back.

We were initially given a very quiet room with a view but it was too small for the amount of shopping we did! No problem when asked for a bigger room - even had sea view which l wasn't expecting. All staff were courteous and friendly but the best feature was the breakfast - couldn't resist the full English every morning - but then we can't buy bacon or English sausages where we live!

Room Tip: Ask for the biggest room with a sea view - you can't go wrong for the money !

The room and bathroom were very small. Hand held shower attachment only. Guests were noisy and inconsiderate very late at night.. Creeking floorboards in our bedroom wasn't a problemn but in the bedroom directly above us the noise kept us awake until 3.30am. They obviously had friends in the room. The breakfast was good. Unfortunately we will not be returning.

Room Tip: I didn't see any other rooms.
