With the renovations of the hotel and the fresh new look of it, we decided to book into the COAST restaurant on the recommendation of Silva the restaurant manager, he used to work at Eastwell Manor where me and my partner visited frequently & built a...

Just returned from 3 nights at this great hotel. We arrived very early and reception staff were great they told us our room would be available in 30 min, which was still an hour and a half before our check in time. We had coffee in the bar and returned to reception to be told we had been up graded...

We went for a fitness day, swimming lunch and to use the gym. The new gym equipment and facilities were outstanding and the pool was the perfect temperature for a relaxing swim, however the service at lunch time was poor. We ordered three meals, waited 20 minutes for one and then another 20 minutes for the other 2, where the...

They've been busy with updating and the quality and finish to our room and the corridors were lovely. We only had a superior double and it was great, the bed was ginormous! The reception staff were efficient and helpful as always. We enjoyed a good selection of breakfast offerings and then used the pool and facilities before we went home....

However, unfortunately we were given a room on the third floor which had not been refurbished; as you walk up the stairs to the third floor; the decor changes to worn carpets, stained...

We have just spent a weekend at this hotel and to say the staff were polite and attentive would be an understatement. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even to the point of getting the Maintenance man to mend my husbands glasses. Our room was newly refurbished and was very comfortable. Food was good, especially the breakfast. Poached eggs...

Have been coming to this hotel for the last 4 years...will not waste my time going again. On the last 2 visits, we've arrived to be told the spa and swimming pool are not in use due to being too cold or being renovated. Was not informed about this prior to our visit. Was rudely spoken to by staff and...

We used to come here regularly many years ago when it was a very grand family owned hotel. Unfortunately after several changes of ownership the building was allowed to become a bit tatty, and the service fell off the cliff. We've watched the reviews go from bad to worse, but recently they seem to be recovering. We took the opportunity...
