Reviewed 16 June 2014

Booked a family room at this hotel for one night stay (2 adults, 2 children). Check in was easy and the desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. As the room wasn't going to be ready until the afternoon (which we had been informed at the time of booking) we were told we could park up and use the hotel facilities (bar, rest rooms etc) until our room was ready.

The room was clean and spacious with a large bathroom which is always a plus when having to sort out two young children. bed situation was also a bonus, thought it would be a double bed and bunkbeds for the kids (as this is done in other hotels as a space saver), this was not the case here, one double and two single beds which were suprisingly comfortable.

Had stated at the time of booking that it was my young sons birthday and would they be able to provide anything special, was informed that unfortunatly they only had an adult package (champagne & chocolates). However when the receipt was posted out they'd included a note and leaflets for attractions we might like to visit for our sons birthday which were close by, i though this was nice of them as they didn't have to do this.

Didn't have the evening meal, but following morning the breakfast was lovely with a good choice of hot and cold food. To top our stay off we were then suprised at breakfast time with a spaceship shaped birthday cake for our son, (which was home made) and the staff and guests all sang happy birthday to him, our son thought it was great, and my husband and i thought it was lovely that they had taken the time to make a cake for him.

All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel may not be as modern as the big chain hotels but it was very clean and we couldn't fault the service.

I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be retuning in the future. Thanks for a great stay!

Thank you for your review following your recent stay.

Ross and his team pride themselves on good levels of service and hospitality and I am genuinely delighted that you had a good time and more importantly your son had a memorable birthday!

The County has some lovely period features and due to the age of the property most of the rooms are very generous in their proportions and hopefully offers more character and personality than the bigger hotel chains.

Thank you again for sharing your experience at our Hotel and we hope to be able to accommodate you in the near future or next birthday getaway.

Kind regards

My fiancé and i decided to grab a bag and head off to the coast for the night. He booked this hotel at the last minute. We were pleasantly surprised. Parking was good, check in was easy and the room was clean and had everything you need. Shower was nice and hot too. Breakfast was really nice and staff were very attentive... Overall value for money.

My family (mum,dad and my 8 month old) decided to have a little mini break in Skegness. My dad booked the hotel so I wasn't expecting the ritz :) this hotel did not disappoint!!! I was in fits of giggles the whole stay. I felt like I was staying with Basil at Fawlty towers and this isn't a bad thing. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and ann Marie was great even to the point of wanting to help us with our travel cot. She made a lovely fuss off our daughter. The hotel is sooo dated but very clean and the decor just added to our stay. The rooms are adequate for what we wanted for a night. The place is quirky friendly and the location is fab. It was full of OAP's but again all made such a fuss of our daughter and we were not looking for a party hotel.
Pro's - quirky hotel, good value for money, friendly staff, clean, great location.

Cons - no baby changing units in toilets, quite a lot of music being played but this was 7pm bedtime. Felt like we were 2nd to coach party's as was told not to have breakfast until 9 as it would be to busy for the chef?

Overall - don't expect to be staying somewhere with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling it's a 1930's hotel and the decor is very in keeping with that era :) the hotel is clean it's a place to lay your head for a few nights that is minutes from the pier. I actually fell in love with skegvegas soething I didn't expect to happen!!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of our Hotel.

I’m delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay at The County.

The Hotel has some fabulous art deco period features and has bags of character, plus a great team of staff who work hard to offer good customer service.

Sorry you felt you came second to a coach party and assure you it was not intentional.

Your feedback is most important to us and will be passed onto Ross (aka Basil) to share with his team.

Thank you again for your review and hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

This is a wonderful hotel in Skegness. Ann Marie and the Assistant Manager are treasures and a credit to the company. I had a great room with a sea view, wonderful friendly check iand a very enjoyable evening meal. I slept pretty well and the only feedback is you need new mattresses as they are not supportive of the human frame. Having said that for £40 a night BBEM it was a pleasure to be in this fine old Bateman's Hotel...... well done Ross
