Reviewed 7 October 2012

We stayed in room 3 - a very small twin bedded room. The beds were very uncomfy and both made you feel like you were rolling out of them although the one by the window was worse. In the morning we tried to use the shower. There was a trickle of water that went from hot to cold and the shower controls were the other side of the shower curtain. I decided not to wash my hair as I would never have been able to get the soap out.

It was not all bad - it was clean and the breakfast was ok (although it would have been good to have had some fruit or yoghurt).

Room Tip: The other rooms may be ok but dont choose room 3.

We are so sorry you felt you had to make such negative comments regarding our guesthouse.
We have checked the beds and have contacted other guests who have used that room and they all agree that there was nothing wrong with them. They are actually recently new beds and are metal framed so we cant figure out how you say they roll to one side.
As for the shower. We admit that the water pressure around here is not very good but we fit showers that have adjustable heads on them and if you had adjusted the shower head you would have found that it is quite a powerful flow.
We are a 3 star guesthouse and offer a breakfast menu that is more than the requirements for such an establishment. We have stayed in 3 star guesthouse's that simply ask you if you want a full breakfast and put it in front of you. Our menu offers you an extensive choice such a full breakfast, eggs done anyway you want, cheese on toast, grapefruit, porridge and more.
We cannot possibly cater for each individual guests creature comforts such as a soft or firm mattress but we do ensure that what we do provide is of the highest standard.
Our previous 60+ reviews bear us out and are sure the next 60+ will too.

Yours disappointedly
The Berkeley

Thanks for reviewing our guesthouse conabdan. Everyone who stays in the higher floors comment on the views. Its nice to be able to see something other than just the sea.
We feel we are getting there seeing as we have only been the owners since 2010. Its taken a lot of hard work to get to where we are currently but there is still lots to do. Its a never ending job.
Also thanks for saying you will recommend us to your friends.
Hope to see you again.
Regards
The Berkeley crew.

A very last minute booking saw the B&B accommodating us for one night and also being very flexible above and beyond the call of service. After an evening at an event at Morecambe Winter Gardens, Mal & Co were brilliant. Room was spotless, warm and so comfortable. Communication fast.

They really couldn't do enough for us. We would book again. Breakfast was delicious. Recommended.

Hi Jo,
I still cant believe how fresh you looked at breakfast after only getting in at 4am. Hope the driver managed to stay awake going home.....
Dont forget to book as early as possible for next year because its reviews like yours that make people want to book in with us so rooms will hopefully, go fast.
Thanks.

Only stayed here one night but would have liked to stay longer and would highly recommend. Our room was fairly small but had everything we needed plus a wonderful see view, which was totally unexpected as we had booked last minute, plenty of storage and of course the most welcome tea and coffee facilities. The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Collette was very accommodating with my special diet and even phoned round the restaurants to check if they could accommodate my requirements. Couldn't fault our stay other than to say it wasn't long enough,

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8, lovely and bright, nice view but there was some traffic noise.

Thanks for reviewing us Chris.
As we are a Victorian terraced guesthouse, the rooms are never going to be massive unless we halve the occupancy levels. What we have, we try and make as comfortable as possible and glad you found it so.
The traffic noise we can do nothing about but again, this outweighs the benefit of having that wonderful view.
No problems with the restaurant advice. We only recommend places we eat in ourselves.
Hope to see you again.
Mal, Colette, Thomas and the staff.
