Very limited parking at the hotel.
All spoiled by rude behaviour.
I don't like having to pre-order breakfast and having to order for a set time. I didn't appreciate the rude manner in which my door was knocked at dead on 9 am to call us to breakfast because we had booked it for 9 and were running a minute or 2 late. Nor did I appreciate the rude manner in which my door was knocked at 10am precisely and my keys taken off us on the day we were leaving. Incredibly rude and unprofessional. We felt unwelcome and awkward. These comments are not just me being pedantic, I notice that other reviews mention the same. I was so annoyed by this that I would never stay here again. The breakfast was basic, only orange juice which I can not drink and the sausage cheap. The cooked breakfast portions were very small.
Good location and it’s near to beach
Wardrobe was broken when we arrive and bathroom door not lock properly also shower hub not working properly.
Rosemary rang me immediately after I had left a message, prior to my stay with clear directions from the train station to the property. John cooked a fabulous breakfast and was extremely friendly. Lovely quiet location, yet only 5 minutes walk to the beach. I would highly recommend Lyndhurst House!
Perhaps there should have been some ‘in case of fire’ instructions in the room - should you remain in the room or jump out of the window, where should you congregate to, etc. These could be written on a sheet of A4 and placed in the room folder? Otherwise, my stay was perfect, thank you
Not a lot.
Arrived at the hotel thinking we had been there before...but we hadn't. Were shown the room (No9). First appearance was OK but that was it. The bed was uncomfortable and small and every time either of us moved, the headboard clattered against the wall. Tea and coffee was provided. The one biscuit that was there when we moved in was still there when we left. The shower was sub standard with the usual drawer across shower curtain, mixer tap wasn't easy to operate. The supplied shower /shampoo sachets had to contain the cheapest liquid you could buy, they shouldn't bother. The breakfast was adequate with a varied menu but everything was delivered and served in bowls. No regular sideboard with large bowls of grapefruit/cereal/yogurts/etc. Made you feel that you shouldn't ask for more. The cooked full English was fair and well presented. Tea/coffee was available and more was available if requested. There were two things that 'annoyed' us and other guests that we had spoken to. 1. There was nobody on site for long periods of the day, no reception, no staff available. When questioned we were told that there is a telephone number in the 'Red Book'. This excuse didn't appease us or any other of the guests. The main gripe was that there was a SRICT ORDER to vacate the premises by 10 O'clock sharp otherwise we would be booked another day. This definitely did not go down well with anybody. Breakfast was served between 8.30 and 9.30. Woe betide you if you are still in your room at 9.10 on your last day....you WILL get a knock on your door.
