    It had a jacuzzi, which was dated and the jets quite weak, but still nice. Good location close to the beach, but really went for the restuarants. You have to go to The Elephant (We dined in the restaurant upstairs not the brasserie) - fantastic food at good prices (£35 for 2 courses and mid-range wine for £23/bottle) and it has a michelin star - relaxed atomosphere, with tables far apart - a very enjoyable evening. Absolutely amazing food!

    hotel is dated, but cant really compain for £65/night incl breakfast. Was given a ground floor room near main street, which was a little noisy at times from passers-by. Also creeky floorboards from guests staying in room above. Partner found a hair in the cooked buffet breakfast so didnt eat.

  • Older travelers

    Location was good, but we alreay knew the area so knew that. Room was of a decent size if a little dated

    Thought the 'Garden room resturant' where breakfast was served was very depressing. Quality of the towels and complementary toiletries was poor. Would have been much more disappointed if we had paid the published tarriff, but cosidering waht we did pay was not a bad hotel

    Friendly Staff, Swimming Pool and Jacussi. Nice big familly room with an annex room for the children

    Excellent location, great food particularly in the inn@grosvenor, very friendly and helpful staff.

  • Couple

    The staff were really friendly and relaxed. The Inn at the Grosvenor, the pub/restaurant attached to the hotel was wonderful. Relaxing even when busy and the staff once again were excellent and happy to be there. At the hotel, the sauna was being repaired so we couldn't use it - would have been nice to know this when we called to enquire about booking but it didn't spoil anything in the end. The indoor pool was good... although could have been a touch warmer! There was a lovely lounge area with a small bar and lots of comfy seating where we were able to unwind before dinner. All in all the rooms, bathrooms and corridors look a bit in need of an update but that is to be expected in an old building.

    7.0

    The staff were very friendly and made you welcome. Location was great for shopping and night life.

    The hotel was very clean just in need of a make over. Also it was catering for over 60s not for the younger generation.

  • Couple
    7.0

    Pleasant and very good value. Very large and comfortable room. Well located and with free on-site parking.

    Breakfast was a little slow ad quite basic. The hotel had recently changed hands and the manager did not know the 'Wi-Fi' password so whilst it was available according to the network connection I was unable to access it - very frustrating. The indoor swimming pool was not heated, which proved challenging in Dec.

    rubbish nothing worked holes in roof buckets everywhere ... no tele working loads of stuff broken no entertainment

  • Group of friends

    location was good. breakfast was excellent.

    noise from traffic and heating.

  • Family with children

    the bedding was clean

    hotel is grubby and in need of refurbishment

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Location of the hotel, helpfulness of most of the staff, and with one exception the quality of the food.

    The hotel regularly ran out of stock items like mushrooms and fresh bread, and attempted to disguise stale bread by toasting it (toasted prawn sandwich!). The hotel appeared to lack a strong management, and took on committments that inpacted adversely on the overall standard of service provided.

  • Single
    5.0

    Very quiet

    Room service very slow and food poor quality, presentation and choice was not what it stated on the menu.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Brilliant breakfast service.

    Bedside draw had to be wedged to close!

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The staff are really friendly and helpfull. If you need something they have it sorted in minutes. Cant fault them.

    The outdoor pool was closed and had been all season. The shower didnt work so we had to try 3 rooms until we got a working shower but it was resolved quickly. The ovens weren't working and no vegetarian option was available on the first night - we are veggies! However, despite this it was a lovely stay and all issues were resolved as quickly as possible.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Staff were very helpfull and responsive to our needs. Hotel needs a spruce up and the rooms desperately need upgrading. Services good though

    For the money found the room a little disapointing however the rest of hotel and facilities were fine. The staff were very helpfull and responsive to our needs in caring for a young child.
