just returned from a 5 day break at the Dilkhusa, a nice hotel, some rooms have been refurbished but not all. they only have one old fashioned lift, which needs replacing as it only holds 4 people, my disabled friend had to struggle down 3 flights of stairs which is not good. rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels, lots of hot water for the shower, the dining room is very short staffed, only 2 waiters to serve about 50 people,we were getting very angry as we had to wait a long time to be served,some days over an hour for breakfast!its in a good location close to the sea front and a steep walk uphill to the high street, not really a good location if you are unfit.Lots to do in the area,Barnstable with the old panniers market.plenty shops there.on the whole it was good value for money
- 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
