“An excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Very well presented hotel. (Inside and Outside) Booked a single room and got a double which had much more room. Very spacious en-suite and the complementary drinks in the room were very well received after a long journey.
Parking permits are provided free of charge, and I managed to park within a minutes walk of the door.
Cooked breakfast was excellent, highly recommended.
Whether you're looking for a business stopover or visiting the local scene this is definitely a high contender. With Britannia pier 2 minutes walk to the end of the road, this is a centrally located hotel and therefore is within walking distance to the beach. Illuminations are great.

I stayed here at the end of August with my husband and daughter to 2 nights. There were no family rooms left, but the hotel agreed to put an extra bed into a double room for us for £75 per night.

The hotel staff were very friendly, the hotel was clean and in good repair, well decorated, excellent location and the breakfast was great.

I would definately stay here again.

We booked for just one night on the internet, we were really pleased with the location, really close to shops and seafront
Room was very clean, a little claustraphobic, we were tucked away at the back of the hotel, presumably because we were only there one night, just one small window which we had to climb over bed to reach, but we had all we needed, it was ok.
The lift was challenging, was definitely an experience, not sure I felt that safe as it wobbled and jolted, but glad to say no mishaps! there was a very strange smell in the corridors..... we couldn't make up our minds if it was sewerage, damp, some weird joss sticks or the air freshners in situe throughout......
The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was self service and plentiful.
Would definitely stay here again, but just try not to think about the origin of the smell!

We spent a short break (Mon - Fri) in the Waverley at end of July. The hotel is ideally situated – a few minutes’ walk from the beach and main shopping area. Our room was v clean and nicely furnished. We were made to feel very welcome. The restaurant staff were very friendly and obliging. Would definitely return in the future.

The hotel is ideally located within a short walk to the main shopping street and Joyland. The streets are very busy for parking although you can get a parking permit from the hotel if you can find somewhere to park. There is live music in the evenings and a nice bar and lounge area. Breakfast is quite nice with cereal, toast and fried food, There is also coffee, tea, orange and apple juice. The lift is old and dreadful. There is a huge bump as soon as you press the button to go and stop and you can only fit two people in at a time. The bedrooms are adequate but not overly clean and the gulls are very big and keep you awake at night.

Room Tip: The family room is a great size, it has a king size and a double in the same room with plenty of roo...
