Went with Shearing's (who are a wonderful company) and the hotel was fine. A bit dated and old fashioned but on a coach tour we were out on trips every day so were not in the room very much at all. The food was fine, not fantastic but certainly edible. The staff in the restaurant were attentive and quick to...

Lovely place in nice weather and lovely coast walks and boat trips out to sea round the coast I'd go back, and it's near to lots of other nice places like the valley of the rocks and other sea side places, good food at the hotel & lots of fresh seafood places to eat out as well,

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the level seafront of this hugely popular Victorian seaside resort stands the welcoming Dilkhusa Grand Hotel. The hotel was originally a private house, bought by a Raj at the turn of the last century as a gift to his wife - Dilkhusa translates from Hindustani roughly as ‘House of the Happy Heart!’ The hotel overlooks the picturesque Runnymede gardens and is close to the Landmark theatre which attracts many national acts. It is also just a short walk from the bustling 10th-century harbour where Britain’s most famous living artist, Damien Hirst, owns a restaurant. The Dilkhusa has a well-appointed restaurant combining excellent hospitality and service. A spacious and comfortable entertainments suite provides the ideal setting in which to sit back and enjoy the acts at this friendly and sociable hotel. ... more   less
