I am an Events Manager for Celebration Elation and had a hen party booked in for a stay at the hotel with a party of 13 in total. After reading the reviews on this site, I can honestly say I was not looking forward to it at and with this in mind I went up before the event to have...

Stayed for 2 nights, we were tempted to go home after 1. The bed was the most uncomfortable plank we've ever slept on. Even a mattress protector would have helped The bathroom was covered in black mildew, no plug in basin, vanity light didn't work. Windows covered in mildew as well, and dust and dirt behind bed. The hotel is...

Stayed for my birthday at the end of March, we had read the previous reviews and went with an open mind, the staff where fine. The room was at the top of the hotel and could see the beach and sea over the roof tops so quite nice room was ok, the decoration tastefully decorated, the finish a little rough...

Traveling a lot for my job, this appeared (from the website) to be a nice looking hotel, so I booked it. Now at £90 per night, I would expect something reasonable. The general area is nice, and depending on the room you get a sea view however, this is as good as the schooner gets. The entrance to the room...

We've just stayed at The Schooner Hotel for Easter Saturday and Sunday nights, 2014. Having been enticed by the 'haunted hotel' thing, we naturally didn't experience any spooky goings-on, but I wouldn't hold that against them. Our overall impression of the place was that The Schooner plays too much on this alleged paranormal stuff and doesn't pay enough attention to...

Left this hotel feeling awful. £90 for a dirty, medium sized room on a Friday night - I was drawn in by the novelty of staying in a haunted hotel and specifically booked room 28. My request was for this room only - the most haunted room. Greeted at the hotel reception to rude male staff 'there's a family of...

The schooner hotel holds a warm welcome for it's guests amid beautiful scenery. The beach just round the corner nice quiet street, lovely relaxing rooms and then it all changes at night during the ghost hunt. I was amazed. An experience not to be missed!!!!!!!

Funny old place, the Schooner; a stroll round the place quickly tells you it needs a fair few quid spending on it. The layout's right out of Harry Potter - corridors leading off corridors and no end of cul-de-sacs; it's a fantastic ramshackle heap with rooms dotted about haphazardly. Some of these rooms look pretty much derelict and suffer from...

Stayed at The Schooner last night as part of the ghost hunting nights with Spooky Nightz. We stayed in room 30 and I was pleasantly surprised having read past reviews on Trip Advisor. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was also tasty. We enjoyed the ghost hunting and there were a few funny goings on during the night....
