“Family atmosphere in busy hotel”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

I have organised a weekend event for a group of people for 6/7 years. This last weekend was for 42 people. As always we were looked after with the utmost care and consideration. The atmosphere in this hotel is always friendly and helpful. The decor in some of the rooms needs a little attention but somehow that adds to the charm of the hotel. We have already booked for next year would suggest that the hotel offers good value for money.
PS. The foods good too!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your constructive feedback, following your recent stay with us.

I was pleased to read your positive comments and have passed these on to Simon and his team who will be pleased to read them.

We know there are some areas and rooms which need upgrading within the hotel, however we pride ourselves on the level of service provided, which does help us to overcome this and your comments are certainly reflective of this.

Thank you once again

With Kind Regards

After getting married abroad we had a evening reception for friends and family here. A great room with use of the garden overlooking the bay with the staff being very helpful!
The manager, Simon got in drinks that we required and let us decorate the room how we wanted. The bar staff were very busy with all our guests and Andy the barman was very friendly and couldn't do more!

Our buffet too was perfect with great fish bites, chips, hot dogs and amazing chicken kebabs- everybody happy!!
The rooms for our guests were great value with full English in the morning!

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.

Although we only stayed for one night we will certainly return. We were made to feel very welcome. Everywhere was very clean and the breakfast was excellent. The staff were very pleasant and keen to be helpful. The view from our room was super looking over the bay. There was a balcony from the lounges where we could sit with a drink and watch the sun set. It was quiet and relaxing. Although the hotel does not have a car park it was easy to find some where very close. A lovely walk into town along the seafront too.

Coach Tour by a local company. Very good value for money, Hotel Staff very pleasant, Hotel Manager Simon always very helpful if a request was made it was dealt with quite efficiently and quickly. The food was very good, you had a very wide choice on the menu, The dining room staff were very efficient you were never kept waiting for your meal, which you chose at breakfast. Rooms were of a reasonable size with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. Would have no hesitation of visiting it again.

Room Tip: Room was on the ground floor with sea view room 8 very quiet

Good value as we booked through Booking.com. A bit dated but my parents enjoyed it. It attracts an older crowd who seem relaxed and comfortable in the comfortable bar and balcony. Breakfast was small but the staff were very friendly and helpful. We only stayed for one night on en route to Cornwall but it was a pleasant stay.
