A very warm a pleasant welcoming although as we are a same sex couple we felt that he looked down on us and he even double checked that we wanted a double room. On entering the room we immediately saw how basic and tired this small room was which became more apparent with the amount of dirt and durst. We...

Bristol house is nothing to write home about as such, it's tucked away on the back of one of the beach front roads opposite the multi-story car park and some of it is in need of a revamp but that's where the criticisms end. The owner who greeted me, Leon, was extremely welcoming and courteous, the room I stayed in,...

Very pleasant stay. Warm reception and good breakfast. Shared toilet and shower facilities. The only downside the hotel is situated right opposite a car park and coaches park outside with their engine running at certain times of the day which was irritating to say the least!

Stayed here the night before my wedding and had a lovely relaxing stay. Breakfast was lovely and we felt very welcome. It's really well located close to the beach, some very good pubs and the town too. The rooms were really clean and the beds very comfy.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Bristol Hotel and found the hosts to be very welcoming and accommodating. The en-suite rooms were clean and of a good size with TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Full English breakfast was served and was both hot and delicious with cereal and toast also available. A short 2 minute walk takes you straight...

We stayed one night and had a couple of small children with us. The hotellier went out of his way to make sure we felt welcome and comfortable. Although the decor is quite tired, the service more than makes up for it and there are lots of little things that make a real difference (genuine conversation, background music at breakfast...

For a cheap and cheerful B&B you can't really do better than The Bristol House... Breakfast is enough to keep you going until late afternoon (It really is large) You get a choice of cereals, Full English or a selection of things on toast etc... I'm staying for Five nights and only paid £100 for the stay... Yep that's £20...

I was really impressed with this B&B, we paid £150 for 3 nights which included breakfast, so cheap! The room was basic with dated decor but the en suite bathroom was a very good size and the shower was good and hot. But what made it a great stay was the location and the breakfast which was wonderful, great choice...
