I have stayed many times at Dunkerley's and I can only speak as I find. Yes, it's all a little tired, but I don't think Ultra Modern and "minimalistic" would suit that type of quaint seaside run hotel. The staff and service were faultless which only goes to show that their training by the management must have been top-notch.
Each time I have dined there, the food has been wonderful, and surprisingly good for what you think would be old fashioned and 'stayed', since this is the image the hotel presents. The rooms are ok, some better than others, some have air-conditioning now which is a blessing. The bathrooms are ok too, although extremely small (where's my cat?)
My regular loo inspection gave the hotel a pretty grim 3 out of 10. The loos (in particular the ladies) are a very important part of going out to dinner and us girls like a little luxury in a modern area with hooks for handbags both inside and outside the cubicles, after all, we have to do our lippy and stuff surrounded with a dry area and space. So I would really like to see this area modernised. Think fluffy small hand towels, or soft paper ones, liquid soap, hand cream....
A welcome return each time I visit and if anyone says the food's expensive, remember, you get what you pay for. Quality, quality quality!
