We booked this as a fairly last minute deal - and were very happy with the hotel for the price we paid. As previous reviewers have commented - the rooms and hotel could do with a bit of a makeover. However, our room was large,warm and spotlessly clean. The car park is small, but in February this wasn't an issue...

I've rated this based on the price paid and the level of service provided. The rooms are a tad dated but everything else about the place was exceptional and the prices reflect the lack of redecoration. We weren't expecting very much due to the price but what a find. The rooms are very comfortable, very clean and have all the...

The hotel was clean and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. We are in the hotel bar every night and the good was exceptional. We had a beautiful sea view and we were visited everyday by a certain seagull who liked to tell us he was there. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I am looking forward...

Visiting family in the area. This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this hotel. In the last year. Always have a room on a higher floor with large sash windows over looking the bay. Yes, it could do with a lick of paint, but the friendly, helpful staff, views and comfortable lounges, more than make up for the...

Spent three nights Room only deal on the top floor in a spacious double room with a bath and nice views of the sea. Checking in was simple and staff were accommodating. Rooms are comfortable and relaxing with heating on all day and clean. Close to the Spa Complex and sea front after a 5 mins walk

“Wonderful overnight Stay” The Booking.com price that I found for this hotel was excellent. Also the view from my very comfortable hotel was beautiful. I didn't use the WiFi or have breakfast (through my own choice) The only issue that I experienced was a problem of Booking.com and not the hotel. When booking the hotel I was asked what my...

Just spent two nights at the lovely Esplanade Hotel. As some reviewers have mentioned it does need a bit of a update but was wonderfully clean, beds very comfy, stunning sea views and very accommodating staff. Would not hesitate to recommend to others as well as stay again!
