Drakes is not a 5 star hotel and should not be judged as such. It is well located. The rooms are comfortable, if a little tired and the reception areas are small, but in three respects this boutique hotel is outstanding. The first is the people and the service they provide. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, they were a match for any 5 star hotel. The second is the food in the restaurant. The full English breakfast was perfect and the dinner we had was exceptional. From an amuse-bouche of beautifully flavoured tomato consomme, to giant scallops, summer truffle ravioli and cod loin - this has to be one of best restaurants on the south coast. And thirdly, the cocktail bar. What a wonderful surprise with a great list and super professional cocktail barman, which added an extra twist to a special weekend. My wife and I would strongly recommend Drakes and wouldn't hesitate to book again when next in the area.
