For various reasons I ended up spending the night of my birthday in a hotel in Weston super Mare, so needed to book something fairly last-minute.
Liked the look of the Cabot Court and we weren't disappointed - once we'd recovered from the walk from the nearest public car park. The only real downside of this hotel was that lack of parking - there are nominally a few parking spaces at the rear, but it looks like they belong to the hotel next door, as does the hotel entrance actually which was a bit confusing (you don't enter the hotel via the main Wetherspoon's entrance). There isn't even any apparent drop-off point outside the hotel, so I couldn't even drop of my partner with our luggage - it all had to be dragged from the public car park which we eventually found.
The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming, so check-in was a breeze. She did worry us by pointing out that it was Saturday night, so they would be having live music until 2am in the pub downstairs, plus we could expect noisy drunk people outside after that! In the event, we had an uninterrupted night's sleep even though we slept with the window open.
This is a Grade 2 listed Regency building, and the room did not disappoint. Lovely comfortable bed, a sea view towards the pier and an en-suite in an excellent state. Our only disappointment was that we didn't have time to enjoy breakfast in the morning (not included in the price but you get a 20% off voucher) as we had to get back to the car park before our ticket expired. If you've eaten at a Weatherspoon's you'll know what to expect - not exactly haute cuisine, but reasonably priced and of a perfectly acceptable quality. Just one thing - wish they would charge a little bit more for their Lavazza cappuccino so they could afford to actually make it taste of coffee!
