- What's Included
Was looking forward to a lovely few days away with a friend,Room was far to small, bunk beds were comfortable and room clean,but unable to move around in the room. Bathroom clean but again tiny. Really far too small to be offered as a twin room. I was expecting a small room with the word cosy in the title but didn't think it was possible to pay for such a tiny room.Would be ideal as a single room or for children.Also had a flicking light so couldn't really use the lights with out getting s headache.This was tried to be sorted but after one was fixed the other light started, and that was after the maintenance guys had left,Very glad we only booked for two nights as I don't think I could have stayed much longer, it was nice weather outside but not too hot and room was very stuffy, window left open at all times, the little fan given helped but was the first thing you put on when you entered.Spa was beautifully set out but was set at a far too high temperature in the larger hydrotherapy pool. Dressing gown and slippers a lovely touch. The first night no swimming pool but luckily this was ready for the second day, and was lovely and cool. We felt very confined and hot in the relaxing areas though.Staff were lovely, spa and hotel. Breakfast was busy and a bit chaotic but worth it in the end.Please consider if you are booking this room as a twin room for adults as I must admit travel lodge around the corner might have been more suitable ( and half the price) wasn't spacious enough to be a relaxing room to come back too more like a place to sleep overnight only.
We had a nice room with a side sea view. This hotel has some nice touches like, free Sherry and Gin in the room! Our bed was enormous and extremely comfortable. We didn't use the spa facilities in the basement of the hotel ... preferring to be out in the sunshine, wandering the Lanes and walking the pier. We found our breakfast more than disappointing and didn't eat it, however the Management were genuinely upset that we weren't happy and did go out of their way to make amends.
Beautiful clean hotel. Spa fab. Staff friendly and helpful. However, our room was so small, no space to move. It was also unbearably hot. The tiny fan in the room put all its efforts into noise production rather than circulating the stuffy air! By the time 3 of us had used a hairdryer, our room could've been used as a sauna! The shower was also too small, anyone larger than average would not fit in!!
Great hotel. Good location and decor great. Staff were very good.Downsides which equate to 3 stars! Paid quite a lot for a room that was soooo hot was ridiculous no air conditioning and no fan. When paying £160 plus a night expect air conditioning as standard. Tried to call reception 3 times and no responses Opened windows to try and get air flow but was so noisy!We had to walk from lift upstairs with bags which was hard work and no offer of help.Breakfast was amazing and staff great.On check out wasn't asked re our stay was ok..... would I go back. Well if the rooms had ac and we could get to the room without an Olympic workout ha ha
We were lucky enough to grab a really good deal for a sea view corner suite and decided to book for 2 nights to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Having stayed at the building when it was The Belgrave Hotel and The Umi Hotel, I can confirm that The Harbour Hotel is a wonderful improvement!! From the second we walked through the doors we knew we were in for a treat. The staff on the reception desk were polite and very helpful. We couldn't check in straight away (arrived at 1pm) so they kept our luggage for us. We got back at 3pm and were greeted by the manager Matt who congratulated us on our anniversary. Unfortunately the lift was out of order but there was another lift we could use. Good job really as our room was on the 4th floor!! Room 402 was wonderful. The seating area, view and bath in the room were just breath-taking and very special. They bed was huge and so comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. The selection in the mini bar was vast and the coffee machine was a great touch. The whole room oozed luxury and everything was perfect.As a special treat for our anniversary, we found a little gift and drinks voucher were waiting for us. What a thoughtful touch.Having read precious reviews about the noise and how warm the rooms were, I was pleasantly surprised at how cool the room was with the air con on and we honestly couldn't hear any outside noise. This leads me to the conclusion that the Hotel have listened to the reviews and tried to rectify the noise levels from outside. The only noise that bothered us was the room above. It really does amaze me how some people have no respect for others-coming in at 1am and clomping around your room in shoes for 10 minutes is not very considerate!! Enough noise to wake us up but stopped quickly so can't complain too much.The spa was out of this world. So calming and relaxing. I had 2 treatments and they were wonderful. The pools and jacuzzis were perfect. The word 'grotto' was very apt-it was like a secret little hideaway. There are also rumours about a roof top pool so look forward to see if that will happen. The bar has a fantastic vibe and the espresso martini was sublime.We didn't want to say goodbye but already planning our next break......
