A unique experience you'll want to repeat. Old world charm and a friendly welcome. Don't expect all mod cons but do expect to be surprised and delighted!

We love the Walpole Bay Hotel and Museum! It's so quirky and enjoyable. The walk from the room to the old Otis lift is an adventure itself! There's so much to see and due to the Covid19 arrangements there's a one way system around the corridor so you can see artifacts that you would miss if you took the shorter, direct, route to the lift. The room itself is like going through a time warp and walking into your Grandparents bedroom, with the period furniture-apart from the flat screen TV! The full English breakfast was excellent and the service was very good by the attentive staff. Also, the afternoon tea on the veranda is a great experience. Very filling and a lovely way to relax during the afternoon. Can't wait for our next visit!

A few years ago when I got married at Salmestone Grange, we booked the Walpole Bay for our wedding night with our friends. The views are stunning and the four poster bed truly romantic. The Museum is just a reflection of eccentrities and is truly a unique experience. Great cream teas too!

We visit each year in February for a special occasion for us, never disappointed, always welcomed and remembered! Still a family run hotel with museum exhibits all over the place, older people like us will probably recognise bits from our childhood! Can't beat the old Lift, the place has a Victorian feel about it but the rooms are lovely and warm and homely. Sunday dinner is always fantatsic and to have a pianist (Nic) playing through dinner creates a great atmosphere, we always stay the night so we can eat and drink then have a snooze after, brilliant! Weldone to all the staff and Jane, the owner always makes people welcome, weathered storm Ciara here, no problems.

Second stay here with our two small dogs. Much has been written about this hotel’s attractions elsewhere. For us there is always plenty of parking nearby. Had a superior room which was excellent. Breakfast first class. Staff very helpful and attentive. Weather was great this time and had a lovely walk on the beach, which is a stone’s throw away. Will certainly return.
