Thank you for taking the time to post your comments regarding your recent stay. I am happy that you enjoyed it and that everything was satisfactory. Regarding the armchair - this is something I am addressing at the moment. Those rooms which can accommodate them will soon have comfortable tub chairs. I hope you'll be able to visit again to see the difference!

Booked here for two nights based entirely on the tripadvisor reviews. Werent disappointed when we go there eaither. The owner was very friendly and helpful, showed us to our room and explained what we needed to know. Room was a big size double with a bathroom and shower. Everything was spotlesly clean and well looked after. Couldn't fault the place and will defo go back again for the next show at the Embassy.

Room Tip: room 8 at the front is huge

After deciding to book a two day get away to Skegness we came across the Eastleigh Hotel Via a booking site, the photos of this hotel looked great and lived up to expectation upon arrival.
When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome from the owner who helped carry our luggage to our room, which was very helpful.

Our room was immaculate, clean throughout and it was clear that the owner takes pride in his hotel with the towels on the bed that resembled swans. The bathroom was also clean and tidy and included little niceties that made it very homely.

Adding to this, the owner was also helpful and knowledgeable of the surrounding area, giving us ideas and information about places to eat and go for the day.

The hotel is on the door step of many attractions, such as the beach, nature land, amusements and the town centre so you'll never be short of things to do.

Although the hotel doesn't offer breakfast me and my partner found it ideal as we could get out early to the opposing hotel that offers breakfast from 8 - 9:30 you get tea, coffee, unlimited toast orange juice and also cereal. Another place we found that offered breakfast was Yates's this doesn't open till 10am but it's 2 minutes from the beach and was lovely.

Overall we had a really pleasant experience at The Eastleigh and it's definitely a hotel to recommend to friends and family.

Well worth the money and we hope to be back soon, thank you for a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: "Hotel offers a low noise policy"

Stayed for 4 nights in room 8 with my boyfriend last week and can honestly say it is the nicest hotel we have stayed in. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner who helped us with our bags to the room. Fount everything to be spotless and all the little extras were brilliant and refreshed and cleaned daily. Everything we possibly needed was provided. Must admit the price is towards the high end for skegness but at the same time it was worth every penny. Only complaint would be that breakfast is not offered but with all the cafes in the surrounding area it was never a problem. Thank you for making our trip so special :-) we will definitely be back next year

Very pleasant and comfortable suite for 2 + 1 people (family); hadn't noticed in advance that there was no breakfast, but not a big issue. The weather has just changed and the room was rather cold in the evening and overnight. Host very welcoming. Would recommend to others.

Thanks for writing a review. We're sorry you didn't notice that we are 'room only', but that's what allows us to provide such great rooms at reasonable prices.
The weather just turned cold this last week, so we fired up the central heating for the first time this year. It turned out it needed a service, so it's now working properly. Also, the room you stayed in is very difficult to heat as it has that huge bay window. I hope we can offer you a 'toasty' warm room next time!
