Staff was very helpful. Awesome bar open 24/7 for guests. Views and hotel location second to none. Rooms are a bit on the older, faded side but that's what gives it character. Nice central location just opposite sea life. Breakfast was again very enjoyable.

We called in for elevenses on Wednesday 12th April 2017. Young lady on reception gave us a friendly welcome. The hotel is nicely appointed and comfortable. We were promptly served with quality tea and coffee at a reasonable cost. Made a pleasant break from the amusement arcades.

We had enjoyed a week at the Nelson Hotel about six years ago (soon after it was refurbished and renamed) and had then resolved to return – which we did at the end of March 2017. The staff remain friendly and helpful - as we recalled from our previous visit. There are a few steps up to the front door,...

We booked 2 rooms - a single seaview for my mother in law and a double for my husband and I. Rooms nice and warm - unlike the seafront in February - with a full bath and nice bathroom. The breakfasts were also very good. When a kettle in the room would not work they replaced in within 5 minutes!...

I stayed last night, in a single room (204). I was welcomed and checked in by friendly and professional staff. My room had a lovely sea view, bathroom and shower en suite, a TV, and coffee/tea making facilities. It was a clean room, with a comfortable bed, and was warmly heated for the duration of my brief stay. For weekend...

This is aout the lowest quality hotel we have ever experienced. Our choice is now very much dependant on family room accommodation and the options are small in this region. This hoyel (and almost all the hotels along the promenade) are in desperate need of internal and external maintenance. Simple cleaning tasks are overlooked. I am not sure how this...
