We had a very enjoyable stay at the Walpole Bay Hotel, and I would recommend it. The glamour of the place makes you feel that you are staying somewhere very special. The original lift and the entrance hall are stunning. The rooms were clean, roomy and well presented. We had a little balcony and a lovely sea view. The breakfast was delicious.
The only areas for improvement would be the water pressure in our 3rd floor bedroom was very weak, the shower would barely wash the shampoo from my hair. Our friends who stayed on the 1st floor did not have this issue. The drinks on offer in the bar area could improve and be modernised, for example offering some local ales. These two things would not put me off staying again, it was a nice experience in a unique hotel, and relatively good value.
