Reviewed 7 June 2012

It is with great regret I'm writing this as I have stayed at this hotel may times over the years and things have not improved. The rooms are very tied and you are lucky to get a TV that works. The hotel does appeal to the older generation but they to will soon get disappointed with the standards of the rooms. On the plus side the food is still good for the hotel and the staff are very attentive. I would rate the rooms as 2 star and the rest 3 not a total 3 star as advertised. I will not be staying again as there is better value for money out there in today's market
Referb the rooms totally and this will help especially putting proper toilet roll in and not toilet squares really out dared

Look at the reviews below and it is clear that there is polarised opinion about the Livermead House. Are there faults - unquestionably, yes - but there are many positives and I try and come back each year. I always look forward to my visits and enjoy the hospitality and the service of hard-working and courteous staff.

Trying not to sound too pompous, I have travelled widely and stayed in my share of 5* hotels and know what to expect from them. The Livermead House offers something different. It is quirky and rejoices in being from a different age. Keep it up Mr Rew and colleagues and good luck with the improvements you are planning. Hopefully, I will see you next year.

Reviewed 31 March 2012

I arrived on a coach tour and we were greeted personally by the Manager and it was obvious from that moment that this hotel is geared to giving coach parties a really good experience, tea and biscuits were waiting for us in the lounge,while our cases were taken to our rooms. The dining room is impressive with chandeliers, heavy drapes and gilt framed mirrors,the four course dinner is silver service and there was a choice of six dishes for most of them, There were fresh flowers on the tables,and the staff were courteous, friendly and took a pride in their appearance. On the downside the fish was generally over cooked, and don't sit too near the piano as the pianist is a bit heavy handed. After dinner coffee is served in the spacious lounge which has beautiful sea views.
As some of your reviewers have noted, the bedrooms could be a bit more up to date, but they are comfortable, and the rates are very reasonable. I would rather stay in this friendly ambience than an impersonal chain hotel
