“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

WEestayed here for one night for our wedding anniversary. The hotel is lovely, beautiful stained glass windows. Our room faced the sea and towards The Isle of Wight...wonderful! The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the food was good, we had a meal in the restaurant in the evening and it was delicious. The breakfast had a good choice of cereals, croissants etc, and a freshly cooked breakfast. All in all, a good place to spend a weekend.

The beach house is a fantastic little place for a weekend away. Good food, very friendly staff and an incredibly charming building. We loved our room and throwing open the curtains to the morning sun over the sea with the needles in the distance was such a nice way to start the day. Thoroughly recommended

We took the chance and booked the last standard room. Was a little concerned that it would be small especially as we were travelling with a large dog but it was perfect - clean, a great size and tastefully decorated. I remember this hotel from when it was called Westover Hall and I have to say I was a little concerned when the new managers informed me that they are planning to move the bar to the lobby area as noise will surely travel up the listed wooden staircase to rooms are at present so quiet, so peaceful and great. Breakfast was everything we could ask for - well cooked, great selection of cereals and juices and staff that struck the right balance. We did not eat dinner as quite frankly the cheap looking menus really put us off so instead we walked into Milford, a short 5-10 minute walk and found a lovely pub to sit in. All in all I would recommend this hotel at the moment but it will be interesting to see what happens when they renovate.

Room Tip: Room 22 is a great standard room

I live close by to this restaurant and have visited twice now and can't believe I haven't been here before! The food is beautiful and is very reasonably priced for the standard the food is. I went here with my boyfriend for a meal and again with a larger crowd for my birthday and on both occasions have loved it! Would definitely recommend The Beach House for dinner and lunch!

Have eaten there twice now and have mixed feelings. The bar is covered in glasses which isn't the most attractive sight. The dining areas look welcoming but the tables are all very sticky. The service is rather random and not what I would have expected. The food is good but rather expensive compared to other places. Fair choice. The views of the sea take away from the dirty, dusty windows. Could do with a good clean.

We stayed here when it was the Westover & it had a fabulous fine dining restauarant which is sadly no more. Our room was spacious & clean but the bathroom needed some TLC. We didn't eat dinner here as it reminded us more of a chain style pub than a welcoming restaurant. breakfast was OK but a fairly limited choice & the staff seemed under pressure. It's basically Ok for a short stay but there are better options in the vicinity. We were atbthe front of the hotel & woken early by the bin men!
