2. the toast of the paid breakfast was old and mildewed

On arrival at the hotel you would assume it to have been standing derelict for the previous 10years. The rooms appear untouched and the breakfast experience was nothing short of awful.

Wendy Alone Stayed: Aug 14

Friendly staff but accomodation below standard

The staff were helpful and friendly. However the room smelt musty, towels were worn, windows were dirty and bathroom was run down and dirty. It was an overnight stay only. On arrival there was a BBQ running with loud music, and a karaoke evening event in the evening although neither caused any noise in the room.

When I mentioned the run down bathroom the staff told me they had only just taken over the hotel and it all takes time to upgrade. Read more

Likes?
Friendly and helpful staff.
Dislikes?
A run down bathroom where the toilet didn't flush properly and the seat was loose. The taps were old with parts missing. Tiles on the wall and floor grouting and paintwork on door stained.

very friendly helpful owner who aimed to please her guests

comfortable, adequate for what i needed. Was originally given a family room which was beautiful and very spacious however if was right above the smokers area outside and being it was a very hot night when i visited it was very noisy so i asked to be moved to a quieter room on the back which the lady kindly obliged. Apart from that everything was very nice. Read more

The worst hotel that I have ever stayed in with staff and owners who have no idea how to run a hotel

Hard to do without being very rude. Suffice to say that I recommend that you all go and stay in a good hotel to see how it should be done and employ someone with experience of hotel management because you will not survive otherwise and you certainly will never get any repeat business. Read more

A mediocre place to stay.

Stayed whilst on business. Staff were very friendly and engaging. 2 colleagues were disapointed with their rooms saying they were unclean. My room however was fabulous. Food took a long time to arrive and our request for early breakfast was overlooked and arrived at normal time. Read more

Likes?
I enjoyed the food and again the staff were very friendly and engaging. The weather was superb so it was nice to be able to enjoy the grounds around the hotel which were maintaned to a high standard.
Dislikes?
My colleagues complained to me about their food but I must admit mine was lovely. There was a lengthy delay in the foods arrival which was frustrating but this could possibly of been a one off.

Not what it used to be.

Have stayed here many times over the years. What was once a quality place to stay has now become a shadow of its former self. I believe that new owners have recently taken over and hope they can restore the place. The decor is now a little 'tired' and a full refurbishment is required.My room was spotlessly clean and comfortable though. There were not many people staying on the night of my visit, it seems as though the place is on its last legs. Read more

Weekend wedding stay

Stayed for two nights for a wedding, (June '12)
Hotel has the potential to be a grand style hotel but needs a lot of work to update rooms and to get more organized. People in the hotel bar seemed content to round up, (or down), the prices of drinks to suit the amount of change in the till. Hope that the proposed refurbishment happens sooner rather than later and they also introduce some proper staff to manage the place. Read more

Response

its a very old building almost 1830's has recently changed hands ,since then all the carpets , furniture has been changed , new 50 inches lcd tv 's and latest juke box have been introduced , some rooms and entire kitchen has been refurbished.also its still under refuribishment.where at this particular wedding the whole hotel was booked by the wedding guest ,some of who were locals and had discount cards were charged different prices,,the weekend breakfast is from 8-10am

Likes?
Beautiful location, lots to see and do in local area.
Dislikes?
Dirty/stained towels in room. Loose taps in bathroom. Breakfast served from 7 till 9am but chef forgot his keys and had to be let in by guest at 7:30. Lack of organization and professionalism.

Beautiful location, friendly staff, aged rooms.

Myself and two colleagues visited the area on business. We found the hotel via an internet search. It was a great location, Hythe is a very pretty area and the hotel had a very classic appearance. It was slightly dated but this added to the overall charm of the hotel. Read more

Likes?
The staff were very friendly and helpful, the mixed grill was excellent (could of done with a fried egg though) menu choice was adequate. Nice tidy bar area, easy to relax of an evening.
Dislikes?
Not very happy with the breakfast. Although the portion size was fab the overall quality of the meat was not good. glasses were dirty, no tea or coffee offered. room was dusty.

We booked a double room on the night before we went on a cruise. I also booked an evening meal. Everything was very good. The staff member for breakfast was excellent (young male) He was friendly, capable and welcoming.

Fine for a few nights if visiting area.

Was greeted with a warm welcome. Room was fine for what we required, some areas are a bit dated and may need a touch of renovating. Only disappointment was the hotel bar is open for non residents and it got very noisy going into early hours of morning. It didn't help our family room we requested was directly above the bar exit doors to the 'smoking area' so with windows having to be open as it was so hot, every conversation was heard. Read more

Likes?
The restaurant was great, food was wonderful and waiting staff were excellent.
Dislikes?
Bar being loud and open late to 'locals', room given made it impossible to ignore outside smokers and in the heat its uncomfortable not to have airconditioning or some kind of ventilation to keep cool

Good Afternoon Ms. Lander.
Thank you for your recent review on Evivo, we are very sorry to hear about the problems with your room during your stay with us. We are under new management, and all the bedrooms are being refurbished to a very high standard. We have put in new shower curtains and the issues with the window are being resolved, and the whole hotel is being repainted. We do hope you will give us another chance and come back to us once the hotel is at a higher standard.
Thanks
