Firstly I would like to say my Husband and I spent three nights on Half Board basis at this Hotel. This was on a Self Drive break. We found the reception staff very helpful on our arrival. Unfortunately the lift to the second floor is still out of action. But there were staff there to help us upstairs to our room which we paid extra for and had a sea facing room which was an excellent view. Regarding the lift being out of action a member from the Shearings staff did phone us on the Thursday prior to our visit stating that the lift was not working and I said that would not be a problem.
There was plenty of choice for Breakfast and Evening Meal which we found was sufficient for us. The bedroom was very clean but was rather outdated and could do with some redecorating. It was not until the Saturday morning I went to have a shower and there was not one only the bath. Normally there is a shower over the bath. Also there was no Wash hand basin in the bathroom only in the Bedroom. If they did away with the Bath and put a walk in shower and Wash hand basin it would be good, The room we had was 232. While we were staying there we went to see the show Oliver which was at the Plymouth Theatre Royal this was excellent. We thought the Hotel had a very friendly atmosphere and all the staff were very good. We had Sandra serving us at our table and she was excellent and very efficient. We did pay for car parking but this was not really necessary as there is quite a large car park adjoining the Hotel.
We would certainly go again.
