“a lovely short break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

We had booked the premium room for 2 nights and it was excellent. The sea view was breathtaking and the room itself was huge and very comfortable and nice. It was very clean and nice and comfy and the lady there was so very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, and right next door are several restaurants and cafes so you are spoiled for taste. We loved our experience there and we will definitely go back. Thank from a very happy couple from leeds x

Stayed at short notice at the Marlborough as had happily stayed there a few years ago, obvious change of hands was clear at the state of the place which looked nothing like the web site. Dirty reception and had to pay upon entry as staff did not want to man the reception the lady told us. More put off by the smoking in room 2 below us, no one to complain to on reception. Damp in the rooms/bedsite with the fridge and microwave - more of a DHS place I gathered. It seems there are some good rooms looking at the front but for £120 for two nights (we saved more by not having breakfast) it really was below even Travel Lodge standard (where we will stay next time). There is parking for around five cars at the front but as the staff parked there we had to park around the back about 20 mins walk away from the bars. The worst thing of all was that the plastic spoons had not been washed properly (yes used before) and put back into the cups for tea/coffee. The bed was not made under the quilt and there were cigarette papers by the bed. All in all a really unpleasent place to stay...

Room Tip: If you have to use this place try and book in advance and get a "clean" room at the front...

Enjoyed our stay at The Marlborough, nice and peaceful. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Stayed in a self catering room which is still undergoing improvements but was perfectly comfortable and adequate for our needs. Great location with sea view and just a short walk to town & metro station etc. We will be happy to stay there again.

We enjoyed a 3 night stay which was a mix of work & leisure. We had room 17 which was spacious and enabled me to work on a desk with magnificent views from the large bay window. Although on a main road there was no disturbance from traffic ~ the noise of the waves was idyllic!
Very comfortable bed and sumptuous breakfast. All staff were extremely friendly ~ had a lovely 3 nights and if back in area would definitely book again.

Room Tip: Location good as able to park up and walk everywhere.

I believe my stay at the Marlborough Hotel was excellent. I think that th reception people were welcoming and made us feel home. The service from the people working at the Hotel was excellent and always put the customers first. THE BEDS WERE PERFECT!!
