“Sea View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Stayed in this seaside hotel on my way to Cornwall. The price ( £65 B&B for 2 with a sea view) was about right for what you get. It is a typical Seaside hotel built in Victorian times showing its age. The room was small but clean and the sheets too. The bathroom had a shower where you have to run around to get wet. We had dinner there in the evening for which you had to reserve a table, We did not reserve but they fitted us in . It is a hotel where everyone eats at the same time. The food was very good and the service very good too. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Be sure to get there early as it is on street parking.

I would rate this hotel, good. The hotel needs updating but the location, staff and facilities were very good.The food was adequate but plentiful.Iwas concerned after reading the reviews,but this is a 2 star hotel! and had no smells.

Room Tip: We had room 2.Small room and no bath but door out onto a terrace with fabulous views.

Have stayed at this hotel a few times, pleased to see new bed linen and towels.Room was clean but in need of updating.A great place to stay for views and convenience to town centre.
The public areas are very poor,in desperate need of updating, could be amazing with the views and lovely outside seating area. Breakfast was o.k.cooked breakfast was adequate.
Good value for money...which is why I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Request sea view ,but rooms on the road side are not noisy in my experience.

I was taken aback by the previous reviewer's crass and disparaging remarks ('old dears', stale urine and rats!) and hope my review will be regarded as objective. I stayed three days courtesy of Leisuretime (Cardiff) and, although I have some issues with the quality of the food, on the whole my stay was quite pleasant. My room, on ground level due to my disability was spacious with a decent double bed, plenty of bathroom space, a rather antique tv and the usual tea/coffee making facilites. It also had a glorious view of the Bristol Channel with Steep Holm an d Flat Holm visible in the distance. The Breakfasts were adequate whilst the main courses of the evening meals were disappointing. I felt the fish on the Friday night was rather soggy whilst the moussaka served on the Saturday evening. (served with side dishes of b oiled potatoes, swede and cauli!!) was barely edible. Also the waiting service on the Friday was painfully slow although I later learned that there were problems with the kitchen equipment. The lounge areas were quite convivial whilst the bar prices were reasonable. I have to say that the staff were friendly and helpful. Despite my comments about the food I would stay in the Daunceys Hotel again as, on the whole, it was a value-for-money experience

Room Tip: Room 10 on the ground level for its stunning views

If youre not on a coach trip with old dears avoid like the plague. The first thing i noticed was the smell. That old people and urine smell you get in retirement homes. The room was taller than wide, no double glazing, no remote for 10" tv, floor lino on the desk that was peeling, no wifi, paint and plaster peeling off the ceiling, woodchip wallpaper, no shower curtain or tiles so had to sit in bath, bathroom stank of smoke, balcony looked unsafe and didnt venture out. Worse than the worst student accommodation. No parking. Not very clean. rats seen aound building. Not happy. Never going back. Only plus were the reception staff. As ive said. Avoid, avoid, avoid!!!!

We stayed one night at this well located hotel on a Dinner BB basis. We found the staff very friendly and obliging. The food very good being well cooked and great variety, waiting at table too. The service was fast, efficient and friendly. The room was slightly dated but clean and well proportioned with lovely view over the sea and front. Overall we found Dauncey's to be great value and would stay again and recommend.

About average for a 2 star hotel. We only had 1 night with breakfast and evening meal on a weekend mystery trip. The evening meal was well cooked and hot but the breakfast was small, only luke warm and not appealing. Our room looked out onto the seafront a stones throw away. It was warm and well furnished, but the shower room had very mouldy tiled walls and had not been cleaned. There was toothpaste stains on the sink and a leak coming from the toilet. As it was only discovered at bedtime we didn't mention it until the next day. The staff were very pleasant and there was evening entertainment. This hotel is not for the less mobile as there is nothing in the close vicinity except a small corner shop. To get to the seafront is down a flight of steps, and the coach couldn't drop us off and pick us up outside the hotel because it is such a small access road.

Room Tip: The higher the better, as the entertainment can sound loud, and floorboards on the rooms above you c...
