“Good weekend at The North Shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

We booked 3 rooms for two nights for the family last weekend (27th and 28th July 2012) and we were located all on the ground floor and it was like having our own suite.
Everything was good about the place, the rooms were good, the staff were very helpful and cheery the place is clean and the bar food was very good and reasonably prices, oh and the beer was scrumptious.
We all had a very pleasant stay and will definitely return.

I nearly forgot the beach is only about 50 yards from the hotel car park making it ideal to take my granddaughter to make sand castles, and they sell ice lollies etc in the golf shop which is a bonus.

This hotel is a great all rounder. The rooms are plenty big enough especially the family rooms. The breakfast is superb quality and a great choice.The rooms are clean and well equiped. The bar meals are very good quality and value. It is all rounded up by friendly staff and allthough we never played golf the coarse does look very good.

Room Tip: Family room has a seperate bedroom for children.

My husband and i stayed here on the 21st July 2012 along with our grand-daughter who is 4, the hotel is lovely and very quiet, the staff are very friendly and willing to help, our room had a king size bed and was very comfy and so were the pillows (actually found the company on the internet who sell them), the bathroom was sparkling clean, our breakfast was lovely :- cereal, toast, coffee, full english , fruit, cakes. The beach is right on the front of the hotel and is very clean, as beaches go that is, and quiet, as the hotel is situated near private homes, it also has a very large car park so your car is very safe. We will definately be staying here again.

We stayed here 22nd July on a golf break for £85 each DBB and two rounds of golf and the hotel package was very good value. Our room was not large but very bright and airy. The only downside was that there was a party on at the hotel and people seemed to wait just below our room for their lifts and it was a bit noisy until about 12.30am. Would probably only be a problem at weekends though. The food was excellent and all the staff were friendly. As far as the golf course is concerned it is a mixture of links and parkland and is certainly a challenge on some holes, especially in the wind. There is a walk through to the beach and the view is awesome! Overall hotel, golf and weather all good. Would recommend and will visit again.

We've seen the hotel advertised during our stays in Skegness but have never eaten here.
Called midweek on speck for a bar meal and the main course was hot, tasty and good value, however the desserts were poor ('bought in' pastry case filled with warm tinned cherries & a 'bought in' honeycomb gateau that had no taste). Bar staff & service were fine.

We decided to chance a booking for Sunday lunch on 1st July in the restaurant.

The restaurante looked lovely with clean,starched table linen & sparkly glasses.
Our waitress was very friendly & explained the carvery menu deals and the waiter did not batter an eyelid when we said we'd just like tap water to drink, in fact he offered ice & lemon with it.

Usual carvery set up of 3 joints sliced & served by the chef & help yourself to veg.
We had pork and turkey which were well cooked but sliced very thick (next time we'll ask for thinner slices !).
Would have been better if yorkies were homemade as they are like crispbreads but that's being a bit picky !
Veg - good selection and well cooked (not limp and soggy)

All the plates were returned empty to the kitchen - a good sign

Dessert this time was homemade, the apple pie & icecream and were delicious and shows what a good chef can do.

Staff and customer service was fab

We had 2 courses followed by coffee & mints in the lounge for £9.95 each which is fantastic value and we'll be back !
( there's not many cafes/restaurantes that you can say that about in Skeg)

Well done North Shore and I'm told the breakfasts are good too, just might get to sample one of those after a morning walk along the prom !!!

This is a friendly hotel and good value for money. You get what you pay for really. It served its purpose for Dad and I. Just a basic stay, clean and efficient. Thought the breakfast buffet was poor though. Two slices of cheese, 4 slices of ham and 6 basic supermarket brand yogurts . Seriously! They do serve a full breakfast as well though so didn't complain.

Thank you for your comments. I am pleased that your stay met your expectations. I have passed your comments about the breakfast buffet items onto our restaurant. However I do believe that you may have been to the buffet as it was being topped up. Also you missed off the large selection of cereals, fruit juices, fresh fruit and bowls of orange segments and fresh prunes.

We do hope to see you again at the BEST WESTERN North Shore Hotel in the near future.

Just home from a stock car racing weekend in Skegness. I checked in a little earlier than the hotel advised because I needed to drop off my bag and get to the stadium. The person on the desk accommodated my check in but would not allow me to get to my room until after 15.00. The room was comfortable enough but the water pressure in the shower could have been better. When checking out this morning, I mentioned to the receptionist that I would like to come back in September but believed the hotel to be full? She could have at least asked what the dates were and checked the reservations database. I would have booked there and then but maybe she did not want my business.

Room Tip: Don't check in early as you won't get your room.

Thank you for your comments. We are currently looking at the issue with the water pressure and hope to have this rectified soon. My reservation staff were under the impression you mentioned the first week of September to stay, which we are currently fully booked for the whole week, but we should have been more specific when asking. This issue has been sorted.

i hope you enjoyed the Stock Car Racing and we would very much like to see you again.
