After reading the tripadvisor reviews we were apprehensive about our visit to the Wessex for a line dance weekend but we were very pleased with the hotel, the amenities and the staff.

Most of the furniture, bed and tv were new. The staff were helpful, pleasant and informative. The atmosphere was very welcoming in the reception and... More

No heating to bathroom or toilet, the bed had a huge ridge right down the centre.Breakfast served nearly cold with at times broken fried eggs. No wine glasses in the bar, I was once asked to go to the dining room and take... More

Spent a jazz weekend at the Wessex. Had, what I believe to be a refurbished room, which was sadly a letdown. The room was only single glazed and the venetian blind was broken. There was evidence of water ingress in the ceiling which could easily have been painted over in a short while. The tiling in the toilet was letdown... More

On arrival it looked very dated and shabby from the outside and didn't really improve once inside. The room was very cold and felt damp and there was no heating. The four poster bed had definitely seen some action, as it creaked on the slightest movement. No mattress protector, a basic of a good hotel. Bed linen and towels in... More

Stayed here two nights with the family as in this area there are not many choices and we had to stay in Street . Must commend the Staff ad while the hotel needs renovation they make it up with great smiles and always ready to assist. The hotel is comfortable and clean but itss just not my type of lodging
