Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is a brilliant hotel, such a warm feeling from you step in through the door. All the staff are lovely (how did you find so many hard working pleasant young students? ), the food is amazing, hotel is clean, rooms a good size and beds comfortable. We will definitely be back.

Went for something to eat with family as my parents go every year and say the food is amazing. Got into reception to see if there was any availability and my young son noticed a human faeces trail on the floor asking what it was. Had to report it to the staff at reception so they could clean it, to be honest I should have walked out then. Got our starters and there was hardly any fish in the chowder which I was told in previous years its normally great. Mains were ok nothing special, same with desserts. Never felt right when I got home and got woken up to my son with vomit and diarrhoea at 6am this morning not sure if it’s connected but €200 wasted and won’t be back.

I've stayed here many times and always found it fine for my needs - there's never been anything particularly good enough or bad enough to merit doing a review. But I had a few minor health issues going on this time and a man who I assume is the manager (grey suit, glasses) was so helpful and kind on a couple of occasions. He managed to sort out what I needed very quietly and without any drama which I really appreciated - it's the sort of hospitality and care that's so rare in the service industries these days. He really is an absolute gem and I hope his employers appreciate the positivity and goodwill he manages to leave with the customers.

Comfortable room and facilities within it. Chose to pay for an upgraded sea view room. Shower was great, spacious with rainfall shower. Bed was very comfortable and big. Room was plenty big. The only downside was only tea cups not mugs in the room. Could have also done with bottles of water in the room. Food was good for dinner and breakfast. Staff all friendly and helpful. We stayed over for music on our stay. Disappointing that it’s very hard to see the band from half the dance hall due to posts in the way as well as not being “allowed” to sit on the pathetic piece of what the “bouncer” called a dance floor at the back of the hall. There was a larger dance floor in front of the stage. What a waste of space at the back part of the hall for people wanting to “watch” a band. Perhaps the Allingham need to invest in updating that particular part of the hotel since it’s not changed from the 25 + years I had been going to see bands at previously.
