“Bad to Good, Seagrove Hotel. to the ESPLANADE HOTEL”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

My wife and I arrived at the Seagrove Hotel on the 3rd July 2012 travelled with Stanley travel.
What a dump worst place we have ever been in, all the reviews about this place being filthy, worn out, and stuffy are true, even the week we spent there the food was rubbish, god I could go on and on about this tip, BUT AND THEIR IS A BUT , I pity you if you are going within the next month or so, but {yes another but} When we moved out on the 14th July workmen were already in renovating this hotel, entrance and the dining room had new floors, all beds and furniture was thrown outside plus the carpets, and they were skimming bedrooms, The new owner an oriental woman Elizabeth is her name is a real nice person, and if she gets some trained staff, and chef, and I am sure she will you will be going to a good hotel with a new name,

i sometimes pop back to trip advisor just to check see if things have improved at the seagrove.
but just reading recent reviews there has been no improvement....why travelstyle and other coach holiday companies still use this place is beyond me ;..
on our visit i think 80% of people on our coach said never again.,
but i see a little loyalty coming from the manager now and again.
BUT? does he think that all the reviews are inaccurate..
COME ON THEY CANT ALL BE WRONG,,,/?

stayed at the seagrove many times and while it is possible to find faults i have found it to be friendly comfortable and great value for money.If you require top quality accomadation stay in one of the more expensive places.If however you want cheap and cheerfull digs with good food great entertainment friendly staff and cheap bar prices the Seagrove ticks all the boxes.

been here before and yes run down hairs broken but managed to have one of the est laughs. stayed as a family of four and found the staff friendly and willing to help with us finding our way around. taking time out of their day to approach us and chat. enertainmemt from dean was great and such a lovely man dedicated to this hotel. despite some of the criticism of food poisoning we found the food good and the view from our 46 double room was amazing. such a great welcome and remembered us from the previous year. if youre going on a cheap visit to the spectacular island and willing for a laugh. go seagrove.. :) harriet jo john and ollie..soon to b islanders
