The rooms are very comfy and clean. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning. The location is great as it's very close to the town...

Stayed at the Dovedale Skegness for 7 nights in May 2015 from the 23rd to the 30th. The family room for 3 was a disgrace. They wanted 5p for extra T-bags/Coffee sachets and the food was terrible. Would never recommend or stay here again. Booked for myself, my son and grandson and the room only had supplies for 2 people....
