Very nice hotel. Very good food, bar prices are very expensive. Creaky floorboards but it is an old building. Rooms quite small but very clean and tidy. Nice Ballroom. £10 per day to park in the car park !!! Not far from the beach and the town.

Very impressed by the standard of accommodation, restaurant area and attentive staff. We went to the hotel a part of a group and had a lovely time. The beach is very close and easy to get to for a promenade walk.

We visited as part of a dance group over the weekend and for the price paid were very satisfied with the quality of the room and general character of the hotel. Reception was efficient and courteous, room quite spacious and clean although bathroom was right. Breakfast was either full English or the usual alternative selection. Two days before arriving we...

Just come home from an overnight stay at Durley Dean which is about a 15 minute stroll from the town centre. The hotel has a welcoming feel as you enter. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived so we had a drink in the bar while we waited. Our room was compact, tidy and comfortable. A reasonable sized bed...

Shame about the £10 parking fee spoilt the day, this has put me off from returning. However the afternoon tea was a good choice, fresh cut sandwiches and lovely cakes well presented, good service from the young man Attila
