“Value for Money Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Just returned from a long weekend at this hotel. Entertainment was not up to par on the Friday night, but Sundays was ok. The Hotel itself was good value for money. Meals were tasty but nothing fantastic (main Chef was apparently on holiday), nice hot plates and ample choice. Room comfy, poor wifi signal. Bar staff, reception staff and dining room staff were all lovely, friendly and efficient. Coach trippers leaving early in the morning were very noisy slamming doors and shouting at 6.30am. Perhaps Management could remind those on a coach trip that there are other people in the hotel who do not have to rise quite so early.

Me and my Husband provided the entertainment for the guests on Friday night. First time at this hotel and we stayed overnight. We felt very comfortable and all of the staff were so friendly and accommodating - Janet is a really nice lady and her husband is very nice and we had a good chat and laugh. The reception staff, the bar staff and the overnight hotel porter were very friendly. The room was nice and clean and comfortable. We didn't stay for breakfast as we had to go off to another show but everyone looked happy and fulfilled coming up from the dining room and generally the atmosphere was great and everyone seemed to have enjoyed their week at the Anchor Head Hotel. Lovely views as well. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Thank you to Janet and all of her staff. xx

Room Tip: Sea view room was great but I am sure all rooms are equally as lovely!

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this Leisureplex Hotel , Although a bit dated , the room was clean , as was the Hotel in general , Breakfast and evening meals could not be faulted , staff very friendly , entertainment good although only provided on two nights . The Hotel , which has a great location overlooking the bay , is a fair walk from the town centre , but there is a bus stop handy. All in all a very pleasant stay .

Room Tip: when booking your holiday ask for a room with a sea view

We have always enjoyed holidays at the Leisureplex hotels but this one is really good. Clean and comfortable and the food was very good indeed, generous portions, hot and well cooked (even the plates were hot), exceptional for a 2* hotel. My husband found the steps into the hotel a bit of a bind with his stroller and I do prefer fitted under-sheets on the beds but this is nit-picking - I truly think this hotel deserves a third star.

Room Tip: Our room 116 was on the small side but perfectly adequate.

Stayed at the hotel end of April beginning of May. The room was spotless. Bathroom clean, shower brilliant. Bed very comfy. Dining staff pleasant. Breakfast tasty, good portion. Dinner, very nice. Entertainment not bad as it was the start of the season. It was a good walk along the prom to get to the town centre. Not good if your unable to walk far. All in all, I enjoyed it.

This was my first experience of a Leisureplex Hotel and it won't be the last, God willing. Just returned from a great value five-day break at the Anchor Head Hotel, which ticked all the boxes.

The Anchor Head is a large Georgian townhouse, full of character and surprisingly well-maintained for a building of its age. Every effort has been made to make the building as accessible as possible; all steps within the hotel have rails and there is a small lift to all floors.

Porter service of cases to and from our room was particularly appreciated; a little touch that made life much easier.

The steps to the front door and two steps down to the dining room from the stairs/lift make it unsuitable for wheelchair users but those able to walk a few steps with support should be OK.

We had Room 101, and after a few initial jokes about this, we were delighted with our walk in shower and clean, well -furnished and maintained room. Do make sure you ask at reception for a shower safety mat if allocated a room with a shower. The shower floor is textured but still very slippery; we missed seeing that the mats were available and bought one locally.

Staggered mealtimes meant that service was relatively quick and efficient; special thanks to our charming young table staff Andrew, Joely and Becky (?). Overall, the food was of a very good standard. Desserts and starters in particular were larger and more imaginatively served than in most hotels of this type. There is a wide choice at breakfast too with everything brought to the table.

Being used to lower drinks prices in the North East, the amounts charged for drinks were a bit of a shock, but a quick bit of local research revealed they were average for the area. At a fiver a glass, the house red and house white were thankfully very drinkable.

We were delighted by the entertainment on the final night of our stay. Singer Dan Droid has a tremendously versatile voice, covering all genres and eras ( but really excelling at musical theatre with a lovely 'Some Enchanted Evening'.) The bingo sessions were enjoyed by many, ditto the table quiz.

Travelling with Alfa Travel, we were really pleased with our inclusive excursions. No stops at mill or factory shops - unless you count picking up the coach at Cheddar's Cheese Factory outlet after being dropped off at the top of the (very pretty) village.
The guided bus tour of Bath with experienced Blue Badge Guide Val was a winner. Please don't miss this if it's offered to you. It really added to the enjoyment of a beautiful place.
Our tour driver Mally was simply the best; continually pointing out places of interest himself and choosing routes that added maximum sightseeing value to the trips out.
The overall experience has converted me to the Leisureplex chain as being far more suitable for my needs as a disabled person. Thanks to all staff for your efforts.
