Philmore Guest House

Reviewed 22 August 2013

We stayed here for one night in desperation when we had already searched around other properties that were booked up.
Good points: location not bad near Peasholm Park and not far from sea.

Bad points: Small chintzy room with well worn furniture, faded pink towels etc.
Only room for one person to walk round the bed at a time.
Ensuite was terrible, extremely small,dingy cupboard with tiny, grotty shower
that took forever to warm up
Hosts were very cool and atmosphere bordering on unfriendly. Would only accept
cash payment.
Altogether not a pleasant holiday experience. This is 2013 not 1972 and we expect a certain minimum standard. We would not recommend this place and will certainly never return.

As a family we have been staying at The Philmore Hotel for many years. It is very conviently situated for the Peasholm Park area,open air theatre and cricket ground. It is a short walk to the sea front and a 15 minute walk into the town.

Mel and Nicky are friendly hosts who go out of their way to help visitors feel at home. The breakfasts are excellent and the stay at The Philmore Hotel is guaranteed to be excellent value for money.

We are sure to return.
