Part of the Christian guild group, I would recommend to anybody. Amazing grounds, beautiful land scape, well maintained. The hotel itself has lost none of its charm in over modernising with its music hall and grand staircase you feel like your stepping back into time. With the most polite caring staff, food cooked to a top restaurant standard all at...

A modernised Georgian house, lots of character winding passages and little staircases. Bedrooms are for sleeping, public rooms stately, fantastic music room and the 50 foot swimming pool is amazing. Breakfasts are excellent, and the atmosphere is very friendly. It is only 5 minutes from the town center and sea front, so no need to move the car from the...

We stayed at the Sidholme for a weekend in January 2017. The first impression of the hotel when we arrived was "Miss Marple", On entering, this period building which appeared to be spotlessly clean the first sight is the large hall and the main wooden staircase, all fully carpeted and feeling very welcoming and warm on this very cold day.The...

The location was good. The hotel is in serious need of a revamp, it's still stuck in the 80's. the bed was the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on, wafer thin pillows, a wafer thin mattress and a rickety old cheap pine bed frame are not what is expected in a hotel. The shower took 10 mins to get luke...

Room booked was definitely not deluxe in my opinion, heating not working, had to ask reception for a heater, central heating then came on! The pool was warm and surroundings lovely. Very quiet Hotel. Breakfast full English tasted as if every item cooked in old fat not the best
