A great hotel from the moment we got there to the moment we left. We had an amazing view of the sea & the bedroom was amazing. Brilliant & very comfortable mattress. Me and my partner went there for our anniversary, they did every special request I asked for. Would definitely recommend it & can't wait to go back there...

Cost was £30 Inc breakfast. Room was clean. Bar was very poor with only a very small selection of cans/bottles served from the fridges. Function room was huge. Rooms have free WiFi even though they don't advertise this. Had the misfortune of arriving at 19.35, at this time no food is served... at all. Not what I was expecting after...

Stayed for 2 nights at the Marquis Hotel, between Christmas and New Year, as we have friends in Torquay whom we were visiting. The hotel is an impressive, small stately home type property, in a fantastic location, close to Torre Abbey and the seafront. The entrance hall and lounge were amazing, with a wide sweeping staircase and a lovely log...

Spent 4 nights over Christmas with a coach holiday. My room (109 on ground floor) was dreadful. Dirty carpet, marked/scuffed walls and dirty paint, mould around shower tray, a chair that was badly stained (urine?) and therefore unuusable, dirty kettle. Perhaps I was very unlucky - this room is nothing like the ones shown on the hotel site. Food was...

Looking for somewhere dog friendly, we got a double and single room for a little over a 100 quid, rooms were ok, beds a little uncomfortable. Staff were absolutely brilliant, and breakfast was good, better than the price suggested.

Location of hotel is only a few minutes walk into town. The room was clean and possibly in the middle of a refurb as there was no radiator in the bathroom hence being quite chilly!! Hotel staff are very friendly and the food was good too. Breakfast is buffet and normal selection of cereals, fruit and cooked. There is NO...

Purchased a Groupon deal, dinner, bed & breakfast for 2 with a glass of wine each for £59. Hotel was clean, lovely building in a great spot close to town. Communal areas could do with updating. Room was fine, no frills but completely adequate. Meal was nothing special but ok and was of the standard expected for the price we...

Norfolk, United Kingdom
kingston upon hull

why does the management comment always IM SORRY THIS IM SORRY THAT it so annoys me Get your act together Hotel if you want to remain open and get up dated nobody wants to stay in fusty old rooms with ancient old had been furniture creaky beds old trays with the condiments on. with the most horrible cups ever upgrade please it makes all the difference ,also old dirty full of hairs shower curtains walls paper thin. and least of all give the correct photos not air brushed ones which are not true just like all holiday brochures. I would more like to hear from Managers what you actually Have done as regards refurbish and what new has been added to the rooms and the Hotel itself on a regular update basis instead of hard working folk having to wait until they have spent / booked/ visited and got there/ and have to say Oh My God then its all too late . I have Not found 1 Hotel from the National Holiday Coaches which gets full 100% Good remarks I Quite understand their prices are cheapish but still its hard earned money and when I book any Hotel I want to enjoy and not find myself miserable because of lack of truthful comments and of how it really is Not how the Management want you to think it is. I have had 2 hell hole experiences and to be frank after complaints as I was there confrontation to the Manager he was in total denial of our complaint and yes they were truthful no point in lying. a 1 off how it was .....we had to stuff 2 full rolls of toilet paper in between the windows to stop the rain coming through and that was just starters. S o I am very keen to have the truth I am not wanting 5* but modernish up to date none broken showers creaky old beds and old bedding either which we got all from ???? thank you
