Awful. Stayed here with a group of friends for one night in October. To be fair, a few of the rooms were ok, but the majority were very tired, the bathrooms were in desperate need of renovation, and we had a mix of shower experiences - some were too hot, some were too cold, very few were ok.

Bed was very hard and a bit lumpy. Staff were accommodating and pleasant. Location good on the sea front and must be lovely in summer. Good access to town but not much happening in Burnham out of season and mid week. Room was a bit stuffy but was warm and clean.
