Not really sure how many but the hotel is on so many levels and there were steps everywhere. I was carrying a bottle of champagne in the ice bucket with a glass half full - we were celebrating our 63rd Wedding Anniversary) when I missed the last step going down to get the lift. Sprawled on the floor (I didn't spill a drop!) I was immediately attended to by caring, able staff who ensured I was OK.
All the staff, all the time, were dedicated to serve all their guests.
The food was good and always HOT (hotter than all other 8 or so Shearings Hotels we have now visited) and the chef's 'specials' well worth asking for.
The standard plus 'room with a view' was well worth the little extra for recent redecorating and refurbishment.
Trips were well planned and organised with two drivers living locally who knew the area inside/out.
We had a very enjoyable holiday.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated on the level seafront of this hugely popular Victorian seaside resort stands the welcoming Dilkhusa Grand Hotel. The hotel was originally a private house, bought by a Raj at the turn of the last century as a gift to his wife - Dilkhusa translates from Hindustani roughly as ‘House of the Happy Heart!’ The hotel overlooks the picturesque Runnymede gardens and is close to the Landmark theatre which attracts many national acts. It is also just a short walk from the bustling 10th-century harbour where Britain’s most famous living artist, Damien Hirst, owns a restaurant. The Dilkhusa has a well-appointed restaurant combining excellent hospitality and service. A spacious and comfortable entertainments suite provides the ideal setting in which to sit back and enjoy the acts at this friendly and sociable hotel. ... more less
