I had booked a Shearings Hotel with my daughter and 2 very elderly relatives. We usually choose Shearings because in spite of being a little neglected, the staff are so patient with the idiosyncrasies of age. Unfortunately we had to change dates and therefore switch to a slightly more expensive hotel.
So glad we chose The Langstone Cliff, the hotel was clean and well maintained with pretty grounds and views to the sea. Staff were professional and helpful, even lending us a wheelchair for the duration of our stay. The facilities meant that there was plenty to do and in spite of working hard to look after our oldies, my daughter and I were able to relax a little. Families obviously love this hotel, there is plenty of space, a great soft play room, pools, gym, billiards, table tennis, hairdressers, spa therapy, tennis court and of course the beach. There were plenty of lounges to sit in, in spite of the hotel being full the atmosphere was relaxed.
The restaurant food was great, although service was very slow at times. I think next time I may choose bar meals, they looked good and there was plenty of choice.
Our rooms were modern, clean and well furnished. A refreshing change from hotels from a similar era.
The sea view balcony room was very relaxing although the toilet was not easy to access due to the opening of the bathroom door. Space was adequate. Our standard room was clean and comfortable with a tastefully updated bathroom. Due to the layout of the hotel there were several small flights of stairs dotted around, this will be a consideration for some. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful about wheelchair friendly routes around the hotel but I would advise asking for advice when booking.
All in all the hotel was great. It is clear from hotel literature that lots of thought goes into ensuring that all guests enjoy their stay. I would love to come back and confidently recommend this hotel to all types of visitors.
