    Beautiful views and comfy room

    The bath was absolutely stunning and the views of the sea were perfect. The room was clean and well presented and loved the touch of having goodies from the white company. The staff were extremely welcoming when we arrived and made sure we were happy with everything. The hotel itself is literally 5 minute walk away from the pier and all of the other attractions!

    Great stay at Drakes, highly recommended

    Great Stay at Drakes, very friendly staff and lovely service. The room had the wow factor with the sea views on a beautiful sunny day. Full English breakfast was ok, I would recommend to add a small fridge in the room specially in the summer when it’s really hot.

    Small room but great view

    Stunning view and friendly service! Size/layout of the room and of the balcony (we had the loft room with balcony) left a bit to be desired for the price, but I guess they justify it with the amazing view.

    Great service, nice room. Though we were downstairs and it was quite noisy outside due to traffic and rubbish collection from about 5AM. Bathroom was nice, but could have done with somewhere to hang towels

  • 6.0.Good

    It's a great location across from the beach and a 10-minute or so walk to the main shopping area. My room was cosy and I loved the wooden window openings - very quaint. Although the room was generally tidy, with some nice touches with tea and rock sweets, there was hair on my bed and in the bathroom which put me off. I ordered breakfast in my room, which is nice and free perk, but unfortunately it arrived 15 minutes late and the lady seemed pretty flustered when she arrived with the breakfast tray. I would have liked to have been given the choice of eggs with my breakfast and sadly there was only enough milk provided for my tea and not the cereal supplied. I was in a rush so didn't have the time to speak to anyone and request more milk. In conclusion, I would say it's a nice place to stay but I got the impression the service wasn't on its usual form.
