Despite looking grand from the outside the hotel is being refurbished on the inside, and I made allowances for the worn stair carpets, dated furniture, and old wooden windows. The priority of a good hotel should be providing a decent bed to sleep, so i was disappointed that the first night of my stay was spent mostly awake on the...

Stopped for a night to see a show at the Spa, and chose the Esplanade due to its convenient location for the Spa. An unexpected bonus was the parking available free at the hotel. The staff were very friendly, the room clean and adequate, with a sea view, and the decor fine. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed...

Stayed here for five wonderful days last September* - just after school holidays aka first week of pensioner specials so the forest of walking sticks meandering slowly around made the hotel feel unfairly even older than it evidently actually is. Details like worn carpets in high traffic areas that have clearly been renewed at varying times leave an impressive collection...

Weekend with National Holidays. First single room I was given was dingy and smelt of smoke, so I requested a change and was given a corner room with two windows. Needed updating, very old furniture and decoration, but clean, especially the bathroom with heaps of hot water and a heated towel rail. The best part of my stay was the...

We stayed at this hotel with a coach party over Christmas 2016. Our overall view of the hotel is that it needs almost a complete refurbishment/update. The staff who work there in all departments are brilliant. They have a genuine interest and enjoyment of their jobs; nothing is too much trouble for them, particularly the restaurant staff. The food is...

Just arrived home after a two night stay at the esplanade, nice comfortable hotel quite old fashioned and in need of a face lift but nice enough clean and warm pleasant staff and bar not to expensive. Near to town centre but a steep climb back up. My only complaint would be that twice the door to our room was...

I stayed here for one night whilst on business in a single room. I paid £25 so wasn't expecting much. Firstly I need to say the staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful. The decor is very dated but some refurbishment was taking place. I had a lovely view from my room. The thing that let it down for me...
