Stayed here recently on a coach trip.
Location superb and worth getting a sea view.
After initially getting over the fact there was no shower in our room & no toiletries, just two small bars of cheap soap - a theme with bay hotels.
The hairdryer was found to be broken, as was the bathroom light. After reporting, these faults were immediately fixed.
We found the staff more than helpful and the decor downstairs very relaxing and pleasant.
We would love to return to this hotel and would have no second thoughts in doing so.

Just back (tonight) from this hotel food really was terrible never had such poor quality food - other thing when I told manager room had not been serviced right - his reply was sarcastic been with Sheerings 4-5 times but never never again obviously the company has lost their caring touch. How sad

Room Tip: When things are so bad room quality does not matter

Just stayed in County Hotel for a 3 night break with Shearings self drive.Stayed in a superior room with sea view . In the brouchure it shows you a room with a bay window and says spacious bathrooms. We got a nice size room a very small bathroom and a small window. Not what we was expecting.But at least it was clean and tidy. Was not worth the extra money.Staff very friendly and helpful but don't go to the bar between 6-00pm -7-00pm bar staff ? Customers had to keep going to the receptionist to be served at a busy time.Lift only carries two people not good when nearly all the customers are elderly or have difficulty in climbing steps.

Room Tip: Ask about the rooms before you book

had a very nice stay at the county hotel. We stayed 2 nights from 13th sept to15th, Food and comfort of restaraunt very good, Also the lounges and ballroom were nicely furnished. Bedroom ok but quite small, only downfall was that there was no shower, a pest when you wash your hair every day! My partner and myself are in our late 50's so didn't have a problem getting in and out of the bath which was quite low however I really don't know how elderly people would manage, This might put us off returning to this hotel unless we could guarantee a shower.. We still had i very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: ask about a shower

We stayed here from 26th to 30th August, and had a wonderful break. Yes, parts of hotel are 'tired', but very welcoming for all that. Views from lounge are amazing,staff all very pleasant and helpful, food varied and plentiful. Our room was spotlessly clean, with beautiful sea view. 20 minute walk to pier (at my speed!) might cause some problems, but it's a flat walk with beautiful scenery and plentiful seating.Special mention must go to Dusion from Slovakia (hope I've got his name correct). He was our waiter for the week, and his excellent service made us fell that we were in a top-class restaurant.
We hope to return next year.

Room Tip: Sea view is worth extra cost!
