My partner and myself have stayed in many hotels and this was the worse one ever. We booked the balcony suite for 4 nights, the Air con didnt work so was moved to another room on the same floor the next night which was good. The service was terrible. We waited 40 minutes for our breakfast to come to our room in which i had to chase up. We also had lunch as room service and again had to chase it up. We had to wait 20 mins just for some toast in the restaurant. It seems passing trade is more important than the guests. The bed in the first room we stayed in was 2 beds pushed together and was different heights and very uncomfy. We complained when we checked out and was told the manager would ring us when he got to the hotel in the afternoon to refund some money back. We still have not heard from him. Will never stay there again very disappointing especially when this was our first mini break away since lockdown

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback regarding your recent stay. Your original booking was for 2 nights from the 16th - 18th July and once you were checked in you extended your stay by a further 2 nights. As you say, unfortunately the air conditioning system malfunctioned in your room and we were unable to immediately rectify this. We did however, give you the keys for another suite as well as keeping your own suite in order that you could have a comfortable nights sleep. Unfortunately you did not use the 2nd suite. You were also sent a complimentary bottle of taittinger champagne as recognition of the malfunctioning air conditioning. You did however, take up our offer of a different sea view suite the next day. Room service was requested at the peak breakfast time and 40 minutes is our normal waiting time at the peak periods. All of our guests are important to us so it is disappointing to read that you felt the passing trade was more important. We noted that you praised the Head Chef when you ate in our restaurant. The beds in the suites are not 2 beds pushed together so again, this is very surprising to read. I have to say that your review is very disappointing considering everything the staff did to assist you while you stayed with us. It is also very surprising to see that you extended your stay with us even though you are saying that you will never stay with us again. Obviously we respect your decision.

First visit to this hotel. Good location and easy access to shopping and other local amenities. Looks out over the sea at the front. Limited free parking at the back but there is a car park at the front but it’s not to do with the hotel so it’s pay and display. Very good restaurant and over all friendly helpful staff. Nice outside terraces to sit for a drink or coffee at the front of hotel where you can take in the sea view. Only criticism would be there is nowhere to put your things in the bathroom. A shelf or small table near wash basin would be very helpful. Putting things on the floor tend to get swamped with water from the walk in shower. Others staying in similar grade rooms said exactly the same thing! We would go back.

Stayed here in glorious weather and was a great choice of beachfront property. Rooms were superb and had great views out over the estuary ( as did the fine terrace out front ! ) we also ate in the restaurant where the staff were double attentive . Our party all plumped for fish and chips which was as good as any you will find in a fish and chip shop here. It’s location was also a bonus being just five minutes from the seafront and pier. All downhill as well !! Apparently Rod Stewart stayed here when appearing at the Pavilion … Don’t let that put you off .. it’s really very nice and well worth a stay.. comes recommended ! Enjoy !

Arrived to be greeted by dominic on reception with the COLDEST and most UNWELCOMED greeting! Literally service with a SNARL!!! Room was the TEENY TINIEST shoe-box with absolutely NO SPACE to freely and comfortably walk around in the room. View of a filthy dirty car park; having booked a Sea-view!!!!! He also SHOVED me at “THE END OF THE ROW OF ROOMS”; and only people of a certain COLOUR would understand what that means; and for those who don’t, it’s like the ROSA PARKS “back of the bus scenario” UPON REQUEST he DECEITFULLY printed me a letter, AFTER I TOLD HIM I DO NOT TRUST WHAT HE’S DOING REGARDING CANCELLING MY ROOM by way of offering me a FULL REFUND; but to Hotel.com he sent them something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, saying “IF” I cancelled in time I’d get a refund!!!!! Do yourself a favour and stay SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

It is very disappointing to read this factually incorrect review. You booked a “basic double room” through hotels.com. You absolutely did not book a sea view room. You were allocated a basic double room which happened to be at the back of the hotel and you definitely were not shoved there. The suggestion that you make in your review regarding the Rosa Parks scenario is nothing short of offensive. The receptionist that you name in your review remained professional at all times and was not deceitful in printing a letter stating that you would receive a full refund. In fact, the full refund was processed last night and photographic evidence of the receipt was emailed to you this morning. I would like to also add that the Seven Hotel is a diverse organisation. This means that we recognise that each individual is unique and we recognise individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, sociology-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs or other ideologies.
