Run by Shearings, we went by car, very little parking yet most of people staying that week came by car NOT coach. If we wanted to go to a public parking it was a long walk away and very expensive. Have been to 2 other Shearings Hotel (Bournemouth and Scarborough) and been quite pleased at the economical price for full inclusive stay etc. Decided to stay 7 days this time, wished we had not. I know the weather was not too good despite it being first week in September, but the hotel was dirty, unkempt and the dinner meals were disgusting. We had a lovely Spanish waitress who was very apologetic but she was obviously embarrased about the meals. Entertainment was Ok if you like bingo for over 2 hours every night. Comedian was not funny, singer could not sing. Need I go on. We came home after 5 days and left to travel back overnight as it would be quicker. Coffee bar rarely open in the day so had to go out every day for coffee and found some lovely places to have cream teas. This hotel either needs a serious reburb or even better knock it down.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated on the level seafront of this hugely popular Victorian seaside resort stands the welcoming Dilkhusa Grand Hotel. The hotel was originally a private house, bought by a Raj at the turn of the last century as a gift to his wife - Dilkhusa translates from Hindustani roughly as ‘House of the Happy Heart!’ The hotel overlooks the picturesque Runnymede gardens and is close to the Landmark theatre which attracts many national acts. It is also just a short walk from the bustling 10th-century harbour where Britain’s most famous living artist, Damien Hirst, owns a restaurant. The Dilkhusa has a well-appointed restaurant combining excellent hospitality and service. A spacious and comfortable entertainments suite provides the ideal setting in which to sit back and enjoy the acts at this friendly and sociable hotel. ... more less
