We stayed at The Walpole for 2 nights with our children ages 14 & 10. We absolutely loved the character at the hotel, with so much to take in. Rooms were clean and spacious with an adjoining room for the children. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We would definitely stay again.

You do go back in time with this hotel, but it was really nice and quite quaint. Amazing service, they were really attentive. The breakfast was really nice too. The hotel is a little walk from the main beachfront but we liked that as it gets you away from the busyness, it’s about a 10-15 mins walk away. Nice hotel, would recommend.

Hotel with strong period effect

Takes a little getting used to, but incorporates adequate facilities with a deliberately maintained early 20th. century style. So the narrow corridors and stairs one accepts as part of the period effect. Rooms decorated in the same style, but very comfortable. Breakfast excellent, and the staff attentive, friendly, and helpful.

Wonderful experience I wouldn't have missed it for

Cons: Nothing
It was like stepping back in time but with all the mod cons. The breakfast was very nice, a good choice. We ate the evening meal most days and I can only say I have not had better. The lady who runs it was so friendly and thoughtful as were all the staff. I could not praise it more highly. Well done Walpole Bay. See you again.
