“Super management and staff”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Although the hotel might not be 3/4 star standard the welcome, service and friendliness makes up for any short fall in splendour.

From the moment we walked through the front door with a very warm welcome from the manager, the welcome was given throughout all the staff from bar, restaurant to even the maids doing the bedroom, everyone had a smile on thier faces and seemed very happy to be there.

Food was excellent, beer cold and service was great. Our waitress Alison has a lovely smile and makes you want to be happy too. All the staff work extremly hard along with the manager who seemed to be there all day every day from breakfast to dinner, to serving in the bar afterwards, what a great bunch.

Well done everyone and we will be back

Room Tip: Try to book a sea view room, great views

Having read previous reviews I was not anticipating a great time at this hotel, but am glad to say having just returned yesterday I can say my friends and I had a 'lovely stay'. Although the outside entrance is off-putting due to refurbishment needed, the welcome makes up for it. The staff were really pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble at meal times ie extra toast, extra gravy and although we spoke to the manager about fresh potatoes on the last day we should have requested them earlier. Our room was a sea-view on the second floor with comfortable beds and a bath with a very efficient shower over. The towels were white and spotless and plentiful very hot water. All-In-all our stay was lovely, even the weather was better than forecast. Thank You to all the staff, and also to our driver Paul of Henshaw's Travel.

First the good things about the hotel, right on the seafront with terraces and table and chairs. food lovely in the restaurant, limited choice but plenty of it and hot and a sea view. 2 lounges one with the bar in, there was another area which had tables and chairs in it, rather like a pub and there was a snooker table and table tennis in other rooms. Staff very helpful and friendly. The bedroom is basic but the bedding was clean and the bed comfortable, the curtains were ripped and the room was very small but we did have a sea view. The bathroom was shabby, bits missing off the front of the shower, paint missing off the pipes and the glass shelf looked fine until you put something on it then it swiveled round, where every you walked the floors creaked so during the night people above you moving around you could hear every sound. There was no telephone or information book about times of restaurant opening etc and even thought there was free wifi you could only access it in the main part of the hotel. The main entrance and frontage really needed painting, which let the hotel down. This hotel was not cheap so a bit disappointing.

Myself & my family stayed at Dauceys Hotel for 2 nights, Although the Hotel is a little dated & tired in places we had a great time....Our room was spacious clean & tidy with the added bonus of seaveiws, maid service & clean towels
The breakfast was nice & the waitresses & all staff friendly & accommodating....even moving us next to the window overlooking the sea on the second day.
We had great fun playing table tennis, pool & darts in the games room & enjoyed drinks on the terrace overlooking the sea.
We were lucky enough to find a parking space outside the Hotel as well...!!!!!

My wife and I stayed at Dauncey'a Hotel on a National Holidays 5 day packagen during the month of June 2013, the hotel is situated on a headland and is about three quarters of a mile from the town centre with beautiful views across the Bristol Channel. The hotel was very nice, clean and like all old large establishments it could do with a little updating but to be fair the staff were very friendly, the meals varied and adequate, for the price we paid it was excellent value. The hotel is situated in a very nice quite part of the town, but even here thieves stole all the diesel from our bus which was parked about 100 yards from the hotel so consequently despite the drivers best efforts we did not get to Cheddar Gorge.This hotel will cater for all age groups but is ideal for older citizens like ourselves.My wife and I certainly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor , it was very clean and light with excellent views across the Bristol...

We stayed recently as a part of a group but were extremely disappointed with the standard. Old outdated décor, furniture and fittings. Room was dirty, curtains seen their best a long time ago, bathroom - well you had to see it to believe it. TV was an old analogue set that obviously didn't work, we were promised a new one every day but it never materialised, apparently they were in the Managers office waiting to be put out. Drinks at the bar were very expensive - £8.05 for a bottle of beer and an orange juice. Out side terraces were equally in need of refurbishment and in parts could have been dangerous. Would never recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Find another hotel.
