Great location. Nice enough hotel. No lifts though. Friendly helpful staff. Bar shut before 9-00pm. No restaurant open either in the evening. Full English breakfast not brilliant. We were not told about this when we made the booking.

Hello David. Thank you for your review. Now it is off season and because of the currant pressures on the business we have had to make some hard choices and reducing the opening times of our restaurant is one of them. We are indeed a friendly bunch here at the hotel and we would like to think that our guests can ask us anything, so if they are not happy we can try to make things better. Kind regards. The Beach Hotel

We stayed here as part of a family reunion. Lesso learnt that Booking.Com do not transfer the names for each room so it's worth if booking multiple rooms to let the hotel know the names for each room. We had dinner in the restaurant the first night and the food was great - I had steak pie. The breakfast offer was really good. The room was amazing with fantastic sea view and whilst the hotel is on the main road we had a peaceful night even with the window open. A really lovely stay and the staff were fantastic. Well done (Great Wifi too!)

We had a friendly welcome, the room was ready early too. We were shown to our room which was Bossington Bay I think. It had sea views, very clean, comfortable and spacious, breakfast was great too. Only stayed 1 night but would prefer to of stayed the week rather than in butlins which was run down and dirty. Would stay again.

A great stay with friendly staff, our room was lovely and clean and had a lovely sea view and there was plenty of tea and coffee and we were given an ice bucket with water and fresh milk, perfectly located for town and the harbour. unfortunately the kitchen had a power outage so didn’t get a cooked breakfast but wasn’t the end of the world they were very apologetic ( this was totally out of their control) an excellent hotel and will definitely visit again and recommend

We had walked past this hotel a fair few times and thought it looked nice, so stayed there last weekend with some friends. We had a very nice stay - the rooms were large and very well equipped, the food (we only had breakfast each day) was excellent with a good choice, and the staff friendly and helpful. The location is great too. The only negative was that the showers in both rooms would not hold a constant temperature and needed adjusting constantly, but other than that we really liked the Beach hotel and will definitely stay there again when in Minehead.

Staff were helpful and very friendly. Rooms were large and had everything you need. Breakfast selection was good and very accommodating for anyone on diet restrictions. Location was very good especially as my room overlooked the sea front.

Arrived by public transport. There is a bus stop within easy walking distance. Beautifully situated hotel. Super easy to find. Warm welcome. Room was comfortable and well appointed. Good choice of hot beverage in the room including an ice bucket with fresh milk and water which were greatly appreciated. Side sea view which was nice, high ceilings and sash windows gave the room a real traditional sea side hotel feel. Close to the main high street, and bus stops either way. Breakfast was excellent. Pre ordered the night before. A great base to explore Minehead. Toiletries in the room were excellent quality.

Our experience at the Beach Hotel in Minehead was mixed. First, we have to say the young staff were all very friendly, cheerful and helpful. Our room was good - clean and comfortable - but it was cold, as the weather had changed for the worse, and there was no heating in the room as the heating system was turned off. We were told of two other guests who had complained their rooms were cold, but they had been given a standalone electric heater, and there were no others available. A pity there was no nice lounge to sit in - we sat at dining tables near the bar for a drink etc. We appreciate this is a training hotel for young people, so perhaps they cpuld be trrained not to bring main breakfast choice to the table before cereals are finished, and we were not asked when sitting down whether we would like some orange juice or toast, although it was brought to the table when we asked for it. Pity there was o fruit available at the breakfast table either. But the hotel has a good location, although its on-site car parking for guests is worefully inadequate, though we appreciate they can do nother about that.

Hello Mike. Thank you for your review and feedback and Glad to hear you had a comfortable stay with us. In response to some of your comments, in light of the currant energy crisis the use of electricity and gas has become very expensive so we have to be careful and vigilant on how we use it. We did experience a slight cold snap over your stay, and when this happens during mild months the mobile radiators are usually enough to make the guests comfortable, the hotel heating system is now fully on through out the hotel. Waste is also a factor, we try to keep food waste to a minimum, one of the reasons we like to take a pre order for breakfast, we do not offer a selection of fruit because not enough people have it and we end up throwing it away. We do, however, often have some fruit that the kitchen use in their restaurant and upon request we can grab some for you. Breakfast is also very busy with guest often coming down in the morning all at once so timing can be difficult, if we are too quick all you have to do is ask and we can keep your food nice and hot for you. It was nice meeting you and hope we can see you again. Happy regards. The Beach Hotel
