          I can only agree with everyone else and say the staff are great and will look after you. You may like to read my main review and the answer from the hotel. The lesson is ask for a "refreshed" room!

          We are booked in via super breaks for 14-15 Feb, my wife is disabled, and personally spoke with super breaks at time of booking that we get a suitable room. Can you check that we have been allocated a room for a wheelchair user? Explanation of type of room and where located in the hotel And let me have the direct tel number of the Wessex plz. Do we have to print off all the paperwork for check in, in this day and age we us our phone screens as proof of reference details. Thanks looking forward to our stay and a reply.
