“really friendly and welcoming staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

we stayed for two nights in the lord nelson suite it was comfortable and relaxing, it was our 2 daughters first experience of a hotel and the bar has been set very high by the friendly and welcoming staff.
we were caught in traffic and did not arrive til 23.30 and were still given an excellent welcome.

Ed, Barbara and staff made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing, Seafront and main highstreet were within easy walking distance being only a couple of minutes away. Room and en-suite were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was just right started the day off well. Thanks again to Ed, Barbara and stay and we will definately be back if possible.

Room Tip: The room that we stayed in was on the ground floor to the front of the Hotel with views of the seafr...

Stayed at the Pier View for 2 nights as part of a short weekend away with my partner.
I must say that the Pier View is a very nice Guesthouse at a fantastic location. Within walking distance to Adventure Island, the High Street and many many restaurants. The owners were very kind and helpfull. Breakfast was good and plentiful. We stayed in the Pier View Room, which is lovely. The window is quite small but has an amazing view and the beds are huge and comfy.
I would recommend this Guest House

Room Tip: The Pier View Room is right at the top of the house, so quite a bit of privacy just very steep stair...

Very pretty guesthouse and very well organized. The owners and staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful and we have visited twice and have enjoyed both stays a lot. I hope to go back next year too. You could not ask for a nicer and more comfortable place to stay.

Room Tip: I have stayed on the ground floor and the top floor but enjoyed both rooms. They were both of high...

This was my second stay here, my first being years back. I was pleased to find that Pier View was still clean and friendly. We (me and my wife Pernilla) checked in a few hours early, which wasn't the huge problem it can sometimes be at other places. The guy that took care of us was super friendly. The room itself was really nice, we stayed in the Sir William Heygate room at the back of the B&B and found it to be quiet and peaceful. We both had a really good nights sleep and didn't hear any noise from any of the other rooms despite the B&B being at full occupancy.
On the down side, the water pressure in the bathroom was terrible, so much so that I couldn't face having a shower in the morning. This is farly typical of old buildings in England though. But it could be fixed by installing a power shower. The breakfast room/lounge area was very sweet with great views across the estuary. The breakfast itself was above average for a B&B, fresh fruit, decent coffee etc. The croissants were a little soggy, rather than being crisp and some fresh yogurt rather than cartons would have been great. Otherwise everything was hunky dory and I've got no doubt that I will return here again in the near future.

Room Tip: If you want a really good view then grab a room at the front, which has a lovely view of the Thames...

A truly lovely guesthouse in a great location with an excellent sea view. The staff were really friendly and very welcoming. The continental breakfast had a vast selection and kept us full for the majority of the day. We will definitely stay here again without any hesitation.

I can highly recommend this hotel. Although we only stayed one night with them, we surely will be back on our next stop-over from belfast.
Very friendly owners, very clean and comfortable rooms. Superb breakfast with large variety. Loved it. Thank you.
