I booked this hotel for a couple of friends and myself to stay one night whilst attending another event in Clevedon. Situated on the cliff edge overlooking the sea has lovely views and the garden would be pleasant in summer. The car park is to the side down a slope with quite tight spaces. The welcome is friendly and courteous, although the receptionist did stand eating chocolates with another guest without offering them around. I didn't want one but the thought would have been nice..!! The hotel is old and in need of refurbishment. The corridors smell of stale food/cooking. Cleaning is not the hotel's strongest point. A used room service tray was left on the landing for many hours. The dust levels on the fittings would create serious problems for allergy sufferers. The lift was strange with old metal doors from another age.
My room had a pleasant sea view but with windows that rattled all night with the wind howling. Why does any hotel insist on bowls of pot pouri everywhere? It is a dust collector and adds no benefit to the room. ugh.!! My bed was comfy with clean smelling sheets and loads of pillows.
The bathrooms were dated without an effective shower - mine was a clip on one from the main taps which was not ideal when you are tall and had little jet power. The tiles were grubby with splashes from the last user. The wash basin, taps and plug had grime build up around them. The toilet bowl was old and badly stained. Both bathrooms had poor ventilation and one smelt particularly unpleasant. My friend described it as a dead rat odour ...!
Evening meal was ok although we should have taken our friends advice and gone out. Wine is expensive so only had water. The dining room service was polite and friendly. Breakfast was good with a nice fresh selection of hot food, cereals, fruit, juice etc. I wouldn't rush back.
