Thank you for the lovely review on our hotel! I will make sure that the staff get the lovely comment as well. The Kelway Hotel is multi-graded - meaning we have 3 star (standard) as well as 4 star (luxury) rooms. The 3 star standard rooms are definitely smaller than the 4 star luxury rooms. Glad you enjoyed your stay...

Stayed here for the first 3 days today of our holiday in PE. Hotel is clean, well positioned and everything needed for your stay. Breakfast was good and the restaurant served great food. We are here every evening of our stay. Highly recommended, a must stay.

I stayed in room 24. The room is small but clean during my stay. There was a feint red spot (not blood) on the carpet and it is obvious that attempts were made to clean it. The mattress was a bit lumpy and needed replacement or at least a turning. The bathroom is tiny and quite claustrophobic but serviceable. The...

We stayed in a 3 star room 2 years ago for 10 days from the UK. It had everything we needed: comfy bed, clean bathroom, fairly nice breakfast, etc. The stay was enjoyable enough to warrant a return booking - for 2 weeks- but this time in a 4 star, sea facing view. It was awful. The toilet was wall...
