Thank you for your recent review, I am not sure what more we can offer for breakfast as both the hot and cold segments are filled with a variety of delicious options. The rooms have been recently refurbished in a themed setting and this is what you are paying for, and thankfully we have had great feedback on them. We hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future.

This wasn’t a leisure stay so suited us fine . It was our first stay . The hotel is clean & spacious . The rooms are a mish mash of decor . It seemed like the most in need areas were redone & not badly at all ……but the cheap looking 1980s ceiling panels stayed. We requested a bright room when booking . We got a dark room with very little daylight looking into a roof : check out the pic ! Reception didn’t mention this when checking in . Breakfast was okay but the only coffee on offer was filter coffee . It was weak & horrible . I was refused an Americano which I would happily have paid for . I was sure this was only a 3 star hotel until I rechecked after our visit

Stayed here with my daughter on Friday night. Hotel location is great - overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Breakfast was good and service was efficient and friendly. Room was ok but a bit grubby - rust on the towel rail, broken bath handle, dirty shower curtain, etc. Also be prepared for loud country music from downstairs - so no sleeping before midnight! I felt that €140 night for a twin room was quite expensive.

Hotel position is great and so lovely to sit and eat breakfast and dinner looking at the sea. Our room was very good and cleaned daily. All areas of hotel are clean, tidy and comfortable. Vast majority of staff are friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome especially the staff in the bar. Breakfast was almost excellent with plenty of variety and only let down by rubber fried eggs. We did have a polite word with our server and every time we ordered eggs although unfortunately nothing changed. We only had dinner once in hotel restaurant. Staff professional and standard of food good. The only major negative for us was that you had to have your breakfast at a set time. I’m sure this is convenient for most people although not for us as we like to get up early and explore surrounding area’s and towns. We asked at reception if we could change our times and we’re told that times are allocated on a first come first served basis. Plus breakfast was too good to miss. Apart from this my review would have been excellent although we would most definitely return.

Thank you for your review and for taking the time to write your constructive feedback. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and I will pass on your comments to the relevant departments. Our policy for breakfast bookings arose from restrictions that was placed on us during COVID and we felt that it worked so well, we would continue doing so to ensure service delivery remained the same and it has. The fairest way to do so is on a "first come first serve basis" with bookings which as you say, suits the majority of people. I do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Allingham in the near future.

Loud music came from the bar downstairs. Couldn't sleep. When mentioned to staff at 10:50 pm and was told it was a 'standard' practice until 11:30. So I asked if I had to put up with it and the staff simply replied 'yes'. Unbelievably rude staff and bad management. Hugely disappointed and never go back!!

Thank you for your recent feedback, we are a live entertainment venue which we promote on all social media outlets. We also inform guests of this on confirmation letters and through all communication channels to ensure that they are aware of this prior to their stay. I apologize if you felt the staff member was rude however I am sure that this was not their intention.

stayed as a guest in this hotel, location is not too bad, could be better, food in restaurant but when i received the bill, i was shocked as i was charged €3 for a jug of mi-wadi. so if you are going here bring your own mi-wadi or just drink water.

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately our suppliers don't supply Mi-Wadi free to us however if you know of some that does, let us know and we can take some from their hands and pass it on to our customers.
