I stayed at and reviewed this hotel about a year ago. As I said in a review concerning another hotel, if you want 5* luxury, pay for it. This is a 2* hotel and I love the place, quaint, unique, and full of surprises! My only complaint is the tv. Unfortunately, (as I am sure they already know), unlike the old analogue system, freeview does not take kindly to a handful of digital receivers supplying a signal to scores of old style televisions. I know it is expense, and I was told that Daunceys are slowly replacing the old sets. Unfortunately, my room was not one of these.
I don't know any names, but the breakfast staff made you feel special, very polite and helpful. I do however know the names of the two lads on reception. Dan was great. Very laid back and a good conversationalist. Andy was the night shift guy. Couldn't do enough, despite the fact that he was worn out by a neighbour keeping him awake during the day with his steel drums!
Hotels/Guest Houses/B&Bs are allowed to designate some of their bedrooms as designated smoking rooms. These are not public areas. Hotel bedrooms are classed as temporary residence for paying guests, and are exempt under the Health Act 2006. Not one hotel in Weston super Mare take advantage of this facility. There is just the one on the outskirts, Days Inn in Sedgemour. I am surprised that a large hotel like Daunceys do not have designated smoking bedrooms catering for the 20% of the adult population who would appreciate being able to enjoy a pipe, cigar or cigarette in their room. I have stayed in hotels which do, and they do a roaring trade.
