“Adequate - just....”
Reviewed 19 August 2009

Annexe of nearby hotel where you check-in - staff were pleasant. Keypad doors to annexe and room. Dreadful rank smell once through front door of annexe - but room clean and adequate and not smelly. Bed as hard as a park bench so a poor night's sleep....which is after all the primary reason to book somewhere. All walls made of studding, not brick, and if anyone anywhere slammed a door, you heard it.
I was stuck looking for somewhere at the last minute in the tourist season and it was ok - but for £50 you'd be better in a decent b'n'b.

Reviewed 23 June 2005

I stayed in the 'Guest Lodge', which appears to be a converted upstairs office next door to the Beachfield Hotel (check in is through their reception, etc). The lodge is a non-corporate attempt at the new-style budget motels like F1 in France - eg. rather than some fully computerised system for check-in, I was given a keyfob with no key, but with labels giving the PIN codes for the front door, and my room. Unlike chain-motels where these are randomly generated for each stay, the Lodge had manual combination locks; I expect the codes aren't changed often, so I'd be wary of the security.

The whole Lodge (not the hotel that owns it) generally felt like an effort to expand by converting old offices into a hotel on the cheap - my room was about the size of a private office - just big enough for a reasonably comfortable double bed, with a tiny window opening onto a rooftop 'patio' at a height a kid outside could peer from outside-in (if open). The en-suite took a quarter of the "office's" space, and was newly fitted, modern and clean. Liquid soap/shower gel came from a wall dispenser.

I chose this place without research because it was the cheapest close to Lands End, where I was travelling for the day. The staff in reception next door, in our brief interaction, were helpful and friendly. It's location is right next to the Promenade, which may be handy.

For a good night's sleep, it was fine, but for visiting the area or staying a while, I wouldn't want to be here.
