“Got what we paid for”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We stayed at the hadleigh gables recently. As we were on a budget we weren't expecting too much, and we weren't disapointed.
Parking is terrible, you have to leave your keys for staff to shuffle cars about. Ours is a bit old but some guests had new Jag! No too sure if there insured if they damage.
Beer from keg was poor so drank bottle beer at £3.20 a pop.
Staff wre ok, and to be fair tried their best.
Breakfast was at best moderate, with most of our party choosing to pay down the road on 2nd morning.
Bed was comfortable but had seagulls outside our window all night.
Would try somewhere else next time.

We arrived on a full coach tour for 4 nights.The manager was kind enough to let all of us in the hotel 3 hours earlier.We were all told to go the main room for our keys while all our bags were taken off the bus & taken to the hotel for us.We were then told a few at a time we could go to our rooms,maybe because there was only one lift.Pity the cleaners were not ready for us, we got to our room & it was not done & i think it was the head cleaner told us to get our belongings out so they could clean it.Instead of saying sorry but could you please leave the room until we clean it.
She was quite annoyed,maybe to the manager not us.The room was nice,food was average & bed was comfortable.there was entertainment for the older generation every night,which they really enjoyed. There was a free pool table which my son & daughter liked & a darts table.
The furniture in the building was ok & the building inside looked like it had been newly painted.The staff in the dinning area were excellent.The breakfast would of cost us every morning at least £40 a day,as a very generous amount to have.The dinner was just a basic dinner but ok.If you are vegetarian,i think you need to find out what they can give you before you book.
My only fault was there needs to be checks on the cleanliness eg mugs in room,toilets,someone just to go round with a sweeping brush & make sure cutlery,table ware ect are clean.We enjoyed out holiday there.for the price of the coach holiday £129 (149 single sup)with two day trips & transport,it was a bargin.Well done they tried very hard.

If you are a vegetarian do not stay at this hotel, the food was appalling and choices very limited.
If you are a vegan even worse, even though the last two days of my stay they did go to the supermarket and got something for me to eat which was the same meal two days on the trot
(they made an effort ).
Waiting staff at our table were excellent and made us feel welcomed.
This was a working holiday, if I was choosing for myself I would not stay there again.

When arriving early there are plenty of spaces, go out and come back in the evening and you end up having to park on the street, where charging starts at 8am. So not good getting up on a Saturday morning to try and find a road without restrictions. We were put in a standard room, no sea view although we should have requested this. Breakfast is hearty and service good. Not too happy about first come first serve on the parking. Bedroom was okay not homely or outstanding. Shower ran hot or cold mixer didn't appear to work, took bath instead. Pillows could do with changing as could see yellow stains.

on arriving we was met by the owner/manager who informed us were to park.
we was informed of our room number (12) level 2 in the lift.
the room itself was fairly spacious ( as big as our bedroom at home ) it was clean and well presented. tea/coffee tv. wifi all good. we had a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed.
in the morning we went down to breakfast, cereal pastries tea toast and full English breakfast. all nice. the dining room itself well presented with everything clean very helpful polite staff
we only booked one night here but overall found it very good,
yes it is a budget hotel ( we payed £42 per night ) but,,and its a big but. I have payed a lot more money, and found the accommodation smaller not as clean and less friendly. perhaps we was lucky ? would recommend to anyone and will stay there again
