Guest reviews for The Ellesmere Hotel

3 out of 5
Ha qui was amazing there and ready whatever time you have to check in. There are microwaves, irons and spare coffee on the lower ground floor which saves your life if your travelling with a little one and need to heat up their milk. The only problem was we slept on the top floor and the first night we had a lot of heavy rain and the window and wall was leaking. The room was comfortable and felt like home but it was a bit dusty. But overall it was a good stay but with a few amendments it could be excellent because they definitely deserve another star.

Nice hotel close to beach, centre and theatre

Pros: proximity to facilities and no stairs.
We only stayed one night as we were at the theatre. Nice area good pubs near by friendly staff and pleasant room with disabled access.

basic accommodation close to the beach

Pros: close to the beach, discounted parking nearby
Cons: the kettle could have been bigger, the lift could have been fixed (currently it doesn't stop at 2nd floor when going upstairs)
Location: very close to the beach
The hotel is close to the beach and the hotel offers discounted parking (£1 for 1 day, the normal charge is £1 for 1 hour between 8am-6pm). There's a lift, but for some strange reason it doesn't stop on the 2nd floor when going up (where my room was), so we had to go to the 3rd floor and carry the luggage downstairs. When going downstairs, it does stop at 2nd floor. The room itself is quite small and basic, with old-fashioned interior decoration and furniture. There's coffee/tea making facilities in the room, but the kettle is really small. I would suggest the hotel to change it to a bigger one, as it's the tiniest hotel kettle I've ever seen and you can only make 2 cups of tea out of it. Overall, it's a budget hotel close to the beach, which is sufficient for my needs.
