“Lovely short stay”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

~We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. This hotel was part of a coach tour package we had booked.

Upon arrival all rooms were ready, we were in rooms 23 & 27 on the 3rd floor. Not a problem their is a small lift. Both rooms were lovely and clean. Room 23 had lovely views of the sea, room 27 did not have great views, but I am sure if we had asked they would of moved us, we were happy and stayed put.

We had dinner & breakfast, Dinner was 5 courses, you choose at breakfast your main, always ample food, and we never managed to eat all of the courses having to skip 1 or 2. Great choice for breakfast as well. The only negative I can say about the food is that the toast is brought out after the full English, not a big deal as we then asked for it before and they happily obliged. The 2 lads serving were polite and attentive but also had personality and ensured all guests were happy.

They did offer entertainment in the evenings but we already had plans, so did not partake, we did buy drinks at the bar and they were not hotel prices, so they did not try to overcharge.

There are lots of steps, so if you have mobility problem please let the hotel know in advance, there where people in our group who had problems, but the hotel has a side entrance and a lift to all floors, they also have rooms on the ground floor so I am sure will do everything to accommodate your needs.

Overall we had a lovely stay and would stay again if we are in the area.

my husband & I had a lovely time at the boston nothing was to much trouble, the staff bent over backwards to make sure every need was catered for, the food was excellent, the bar was well stocked & the prices were average, our room was at the top so the bathroom was a bit small but we took it our stride and had a good laugh.I use a walking stick but manage the steps upto the hotel ok.inside there was a lift to all floors. we will definatley go again with David urquart coach very good value for money.

I stayed at "The Boston" for four nights , commencing Monday , 18th March , 2013 . The first , never mentioned problem , until we arrived , were the fifteen steep steps up to the only entrance . My room (12a) was very small , and looked down on peoples' back yards , bins , et cetera , and yet I was charged £20.00 "Single person suppliment" . Another lady had a large room (with a double bed she didn't want) & she was charged £15.00 extra ??? There were two male waiters in the dining room & the one , in particular , was far too brusque for my liking . (I spoke to him about it on a previous occasion & his answer was "Ah'm Yorksheer !" ) In all fairness , the food was good , but the manner in which it was served spoiled one's meals . I cannot recommend this hotel .A.C.M.C II . 1543/Sun/24/03/2013 . P.S. I tried to speak to the manager on three occasions , but never got a chance . (Talking on the 'phone , endlessly , twice , and ran off , "Busy" on the third ocassion . A.C.M.C. II . One hardly ever saw a member of staff , except at meal-times , or when a lad was behind the bar . A.C.M.C. II .

Room Tip: Avoid 12a at all costs !

Didn't know what to expect as this was booked by family for a family gathering, but was quite surprised.. asked for a Sea View as I had seen a photo on trip advisor from one of the bedrooms.
The room was a decent size, bed comfy, only thing was the shower, a bit hit and miss temperature wise.. The views were fantastic... Staff very polite , stayed for Bed & Breakfast, the brekky was quite nice, offered more hot drinks and toast ... would def stay again, £50 for a double room including breakfast

Room Tip: Ask for seaview, room 16/17 or even room 2
