“One of the cleanest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This really good hotel just yards from the sea front is proberly the cleanest we have been in.. and we've been in a lot of hotels. The attention to detail by the cleaning staff is second to none. The food is good. Rooms are comfortable and well stocked. Nice bar area and entertainment was good on the Friday night we stayed. The staff are friendly and helpful. The other thing we liked was the towels for drying the dog and the fact they openly accept dogs. Dont come here if you don't like dogs as its a hotel run by a charity for the Blind. Across the road is a Weatherspoons but don't worry they don't do the discos any more.

Stayed In Weston a few times now and found The Lauriston Hotel to be better than most. 10 yards off the sea front, and right by the bars and pubs for great night life. Pier 100yards. Rooms spacious and lovely and warm, large bathroom and a really nice breakfast. But above all the staff were all really friendly and a special mention to Craig, who welcomed us and looked after us during our stay. You could pay double eleswhere and it wouldn,t be as nice.

as we were visiting wsm for a concert treat for my birthday my friend booked the hotel . We were told by staff on phone it was 5 mins from station , maybe by car yes but we were walking ! Maybe we should have took a cab .the room was nice & clean plenty of room . Bathroom could have done with a bit of a makeover . Breakfast as other people have said is portion controlled it certainly didnt last me till dinner .but as it was handy for the playhouse & only 1 night it was ok

My wife and I have just returned from a relaxing 3 night stay in this wonderful hotel. We booked it, as like many others, we like to share a short break with our Springer Spaniel. The hotel provides so much more than most with free car parking, dog towels, dog bowls, dog beds, good location for beach and shops and wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. The accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were good with plenty of choice. The staff made this stay so memorable, everyone was outstanding in their customer service we will return again soon.

Room Tip: We booked room 35 on the second floor, a twin room. It was spacious with a sea view.

I have visited The Lauriston 3 times now. I go there because it is one of the few places in the area that will allow guests to bring their dogs with them. I have a wonderful pet and she likes to go into the sea and run on beaches but living in the centre of England she does not get much opportunity to do so and therefore, ever so often, we travel down to Weston for a few days of dog's holiday treat. The Lauriston not only lets you bring your dog with you but provides you with excellent facilities to help you look after them - towels to dry them with when they come back wet from a run on the beach, a special dog shower, a dedicated "relief" area, bowls for them to drink and eat from and a general air of delight at seeing your dog and letting you be able to stay there with them. The reviewer who recently had a silly moan about dog towels being available at the entrance of the hotel obviously should have read Tripadvisor before traveling and then they would not have been so snootily put out about discovering the facility when they arrived there (though they were strangely quick to write about it on Tripadvisor - clearly they prefer inflicting their own opinion on other people rather than reading what others have to say). Likewise the woman who was attending a music festival who complained a few weeks ago about not being able to stay in a bedroom for an extra fifteen minutes over time although she and her children could easily have sat in one of the pleasant sitting rooms in the hotel and consequently felt it justified to vindictively award The Lauriston just one Tripadvisor spot - if she had read Tripadvisor beforehand she would have known that she was probably an unsuitable guest for the hotel. This hotel is excellent at doing what it sets out to do. Its service to the visually impaired and disabled (and, from my point of view, the person who likes to have their dog travel with them) must be second to none. Despite the views of the music festival woman, it is extremely friendly with the staff being genuinely helpful and cheerful and interested in their guests (human and canine). Yes, some of the single rooms are quite small and the decor certainly could not be described as chic, but the price of staying there represents exceptionally good value and the atmosphere is cosy and comfortable and pleasant and happy. The rooms and public areas are kept beautifully clean by the excellent staff and the breakfasts are marvelous - a good range of choice and all freshly cooked when you are ready to eat it, much better than l have had in some of the large (and ludicrously expensive) hotels where dreadful buffets are provided. Recent reviewers have also quite rightly identified the fantastic location of the hotel - just about 30 yards from the beach (and it just happens to be the section which has year-long access for dogs) and a couple of minutes walk from the pier and the shops in the town centre. Recent reviews have provided readers with a good illustration of who is going to appreciate staying at The Lauriston, personally I would have said almost everyone but clearly if you are dog towel-phobic or find it hard to understand why it is not be possible to occupy rooms after the advertised time of departure or if you want Hilton-style facilities even though you are paying a fifth or a tenth of Hilton-style prices, then The Lauriston is not for you. I don't suppose they will miss you since the hotel is usually booked a long way ahead by all the people who are going back again having experienced the marvelous and good value hospitality that the hotel provides. My repeat visits convince me that not only is the place excellent but it is consistently excellent. Really it deserves special recognition for its service to the visually and physically disabled and Weston council ought to give it a special award for the way it attracts so many visitors to Weston, particularly those whose needs are not so well addressed by other hotels. If you have stayed there and feel you have something to moan about then I suggest the problem is more to do with you than with the hotel.

My wife and I have stayed here twice and have booked to go back in January. This hotel definitely ticks the right boxes. Firstly nice big car park, so no fees. Location is 20 yards from the beach and a five minute walk to all the shops. Hotel rooms are spacious with en suite and staff friendly. Breakfast was very nice and nice little bar area for a quiet drink. Already looking forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: Sea view would be nice

September 17th with a Nottingham disablement group travelling with Rhodes, spent a most satisfying 5 days here. The bedrooms are spacious and adequately fitted with sufficient disablement equipment. Walk-ins showers, bathrooms, all are available. The food was extensive and varied, whilst the staff all seemed to have a smile for everyone.(One exception was the catering manager who had a permanent forlorn look, I thought I had made him smile but a member of staff assured me that it would be passing wind.) The decor is good. It was first opened for blind people. The only down side was the evening entertainment, which was mundane.

Room Tip: There is a lift to all floors, with a disabled lift to all the specialist bedrooms.
