This small hotel never disappoints you. It's a very well decorated hotel with lovely features. I love the lights. There is a mix of holiday let's and a self catering apartment which makes it an interesting place to visit. Rooms are beautifully decorated and the beds are comfortable. You are very near to the beautiful Ansteys Cove and amenities. Kents...

I booked two rooms at this hotel for myself and my Mother, for a 3 day break in the Bay. Anstey's Lea is typical of the large Victorian houses in the area - big doors, high ceilings with beautiful cornicing and an imposing entrance hall. My Mum's room, within the main house, was beautifully decorated, to an excellent standard with...

What a dreadful owner/manager. He has a mean, unwelcoming attitude and no manners at all, treated me with total disrespect. He has set timings for hot water and turns it off. He services the room only every other day as you see from his scrappy notices on every wall. No mention of this on booking website. In his rule book...

Me and my friend arrived to the hotel after a long journey. We got welcomed by a rude accountant who told us he emailed us that he had to put us into another hotel on the other side of town due to a long staying customer. I never had any email about this. He wasn't even apologetic and was very...

We stayed in one of the self catering apartments, it was AMAZING!! Everything was clean and tidy, the proprietor was friendly and helpful. The view from our bedroom was amazing. Both bedrooms were ensuite, tv's in the bedrooms and the lounge/diner, the kitchen area was more than adequate for what we needed, I cooked both in the evening and breakfast...
