My partner booked two nights for us here a while back with a Groupon offer, and I was disappointed when I read some of the negative views of the hotel on this site. We arrived Friday evening and the receptionist was pleasant and efficient dealing with our arrival. We did not have the correct paperwork from Groupon but we were...

Booked a double room only to be given a twin room. When complained was told someone will come up to push the beds together! This is not what I booked! Plus the whole hotel is extremely hot with no air con, smells old and stale and has no free parking for guests! Ruined my anniversary.

I stayed at the Cavendish Hotel for the weekend. I was in a lovely big room with a beautiful view of the sea and the pier. The staff at the reception were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was tasty.

I only stayed overnight (as I have done in the past), but I heard two separate customers ask for fans in their bedrooms and we found that, although we could turn off the radiator in the bedroom, we couldn't switch off the towel rail, but it didn't affect us too much, as we just opened the windows. On the subject...

Arrived with my daughter and her two small girls and a friend for afternoon tea. Not the friendliest of staff. Tea....sandwiches, cakes, scone...were delivered to our table. I would expect the waiting staff to check that everything was ok ...but no ....it all just seemed too much of an effort for them.

Everything I thought of this hotel has been mentioned before in other reviews Uncomfortably hot bedroom, no air con, old decor, 1 lift which took ages when called All money seems to have been spent to make the reception and meeting rooms look nice, shame about the bedrooms Also car park was hard to find at 10pm - maybe some...

I stay at the cavendish often for work. It's pleasant enough and the staff are friendly the rooms could just do with some updating they are rather old fashioned and can tell have been used a lot. Breakfast is good.

Fab location, central and in the beach front. Own car park which was great if a little small so limited places available. Check in staff were friendly. Inital thoughts on our double room without a window were good. Clean and tidy room with a super king bed and a large bathroom as well. However it quickly became apparent that there...

Seduced by an attractive price, I decided to book the Cavendish for the night. Of course the catch was that I had a basement room with no windows which I didn't know about in advance. Although the lack of view was not a problem, two points to consider for the unwary are that the positive pressure ventilation system is very...

Where do I start? We parked in the hotel car park on arrival, as this seemed the most normal option. It wasn't until we'd paid an extra £4 for this on top of the room, that we found out it would've only cost £1 if we'd parked outside on the road. The reception staff on arrival were very off-hand, and...
