      Location on sea front

      Presentation of food and dinner menu in dining very poor - certainly need new toaster as takes ages to get toast and alot of wastage trying!

    • Single

      I have no complaints other than the fact that in my booking I did ask for a room with a sea view, This we did not get.

    • Older travelers

      Accomodated room with seaview as requested, assisted with luggage to room and additional towels etc. provided on request. Hotel quiet, everything I needed and nothing I didn't

      We enjoyed the Esplanade. The staff were always vey pleasant and helpful. The hotel also had a wealth of tourist information making it easy to find our way around. We will definitely return to the Esplanade!

      The food is excellant both evening meal and breakfast. The restaurant should be advertised.

      I stayed in room 110 and it is an old room that could do with modernisation. The bathroom especially. Although the view was beautiful. There are very few facilities at the hotel. The bar is poorly serviced.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      I loved the location

      The room where I stayed had a generator going all night so I did not get a wink of sleep so therefore was extremely dissapointed with that
