“Pretty much what I expected...”
Reviewed 22 May 2012 via mobile

I stayed in the Dovedale at short notice so I was pleased to secure a room. I didn't expect a great deal and the hotel delivered perfectly. I was greeted in the car park by a couple of sullen staff enjoying a cigarette (and they were well on the way to filling a huge pot with fag ends!) and after checking in was directed to a large room in the lofty heights of the building by a pleasant and helpful member of the reception staff. The room was clean, dated and benefitted from a powerful shower. The bar sold drinks and there was bacon for breakfast. Just what you'd expect for around £60.

I am originally from the area and to be honest I did not know what to expect but I must say both myself and my wife pleasantly surprised.
Priced very reasonably with breakfast included, the room and ensuite were 'used' but not dated, and extremely clean. The hotel offered excellent off road parking which which was easily accessed from the rear hotel. The staff were very friendly and happy to help.
Although we did not dine at the hotel friends local to the area advised of it's reputation for good food.
Sited just off Cleethorpes sea front the hotel is a hidden gem that we will use again in the future. Well done the Dovedale!

The hotel looks lovely on first impressions - reception and bar very light and modern. My room was tired, basic and disappointing. Breakfast lovely. Meals quite pricey but lovely. Updated rooms are a must for this hotel to do as they are nowhere near as nice as the modern reception/bar.

The hotel is very nice and very modern. Just a short walk to the beach. The bedrooms are very basic but still clean. Parking onsite but it is limited. Breakfast was simple but nice. Nothing special.

The hotel looks lovely on first impressions - reception and bar very light and modern. My room was tired and breakfast was basic and disappointing.
also reception not manned at night and i was there when a large group of men stayed and returned at about 11.30pm then continued to make very loud noise until the early hours - they were obviously having fun!!!
