First the only negative, our room didn't have the nicest of views but not everyone can. The staff were excellent, attentive, polite and there when you wanted them. The room was nice enough, but for once for a hotel the bath was big. Big enough for me at 6'4" to enjoy. Plus it had spa jets. The shower in the...

Having spent a week with a party of all male bowlers, we were all extremely satisfied with the comfort, facilities excellent food and very obliging staff. A pleasant and scenic walk into town . The walk up the slope to return requires a fair degree of fitness.

We had to go over to empty my Uncles flat as he moved into a care home. The hotel was close to the home and the flat so was an ideal choice. Nice place, reminded me of my childhood staying in hotels in Scarborough. We only had breakfast and that was good. You could not serve yourself though with juice...

Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at the Red Lea. We have taken the decision to have full service at breakfast and dinner, we understand some guests do like the self service option, table service allows for quality of food and customer service.

We stayed for a night over the bank holiday. It wasn't a bad rate for £70 for 1 night and breakfast included. The one reason we booked here is because it has a pool so something to do when you get there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Always smiling and happy to answer any questions. The hotel is...

I stayed here recently to attend an AGM which was also held in the hotel. I was fortunate to have a huge room with a sea view. The bathroom was immaculate. The restaurant staff were very good and it was unusual to have waiter service at breakfast rather than a buffet but this was because they offered so much choice!...

We stayed over Easter, we had stayed here on 3 occasions when the hotel was owned by Mr and Mrs Lea. Our room on this visit was small, and drab. Previously our rooms had been better. We were part of a coach party, some of which had far larger rooms, it appears that there was no common denominator to our...
