Reviewed 13 September 2016

Great family run hotel. Just keep Jane informed of your wishes and a pleasant stay is guaranteed. The location was perfect as I was attending a Bridge Congress in the Winter Gardens, just across the road. My room, 3a was done with TLC and although small was good value. Have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: Any. Just give your preferences to Ms Manners

Thank you for speaking my thoughts....
Sorry, but I don't have the time to respond to the many reviews.... I feel my time is better spent communicating with the guests I have around me .... as most of you will know, I am a bit of a chatterbox!! I really enjoy the banter, the fun and laughter we share, the positive ideas that are exchanged, resulting in a relaxed, fun stay for most of my guests! No boxes to tick, no reports to write, just a positve/worthwhile friendly exchange! We all learn, we all have fun, and we all feel recharged to face the challenges of everyday life ....
So , please come and stay... but please communicate first... your wishes, your specific needs, so that my efforts are directed in the right direction for you !!! But most of all, bring a positve mind... it's infectious !

Thank You for reading ..

The reviews here are very extreme - either a shambles or quirky and friendly. The location is good, rooms are ok for the price point, so it really depends on what you want from a landlady. Waiting 2 hours to check in whilst you hear the mobile phone you are supposed to call ringing unattended nearby is either completely unacceptable or you think sometimes people forget that the best thing with mobile phones is that they are......mobile, ie you take them with you when you pop out to watch tennis. There is nothing average about this place but I could not decide what the real rating should be here.

The prices i charge do not allow for a constant receptionist.....apologies for leaving my mobile, so i could return within 2 mins.....but your friends did say they were waiting for you , and they knew where I was... watching the Tennis !!! It's why i live here, so i try to go over the road to watch it, play when i can ... It keeps me human !!Jane Manners

If you want a boring corporate hotel, don't come here. If however you want to enjoy yourself and want a welcoming and hospitable venue with good food and very friendly staff - come here! We'll be back!
Close to all amenities and theatre venues.

We arrived at 2pm as suggested on the booking but had to wait 25 mins to get into the hotel. This would not have been an issue except we had a very tight deadline to be at an important engagement. Jane was very clear it was our fault, not hers. However, it should be noted that after some exchange of words Jane did upgrade our room, for which we were grateful (and is the reason we gave a 2, not 1 rating).

In all, the room was large and acceptable - we spent our night and happily checked out as quickly as possible the next day.

Jane did try to mend the broken bridges but the difficult nature of her character will mean we won't be going back.

The prices I charge do not cover a full time receptionist...nor do i have sufficient rooms to warrent one ....
It is therefore important that you ring with your booking to request a specific time, if you have a deadline to meet... I only meet deadlines on request... otherwise we would be sitting there for hours waiting for guests to arrive ...

Thank You for staying Park View.. Just ring first next time to request you specific needs and we will do our best to meet them!

I really enjoyed my stay, I was here on a working venture as my company paid for the stay. I was very impressed with everything here, Jane our host was so nice she could not do enough to help.

I was given a with an en-suite with a very comfortable double bed. The room was very decorative you could see her passion for tennis. There was also a flatscreen tv with freeview channels.


All amenities were in great order.
I felt it was a home from home. very close to the promenade just 2 minutes walk away

One mornning I had slept in for work and Jane drove me to my job I cant rate highly enough.

Would gladly stay here again when I want a trip away in the summer with my girlfriend.

Room Tip: first floor can pick up wifi nice double room for couple
