We have stayed at the Lauriston before and have always found it good value for money.
Room was tidy no phone, had troubl with tv remote gave us another which didn't work either.beds clean .
Room fine. Reception weak. Breakfast a disaster.
Waited 5 minutes at Reception, for a passing manager to check me in.
Bed comfortable. Room ok and nicely quiet. Breakfast busy. Tables either occupied or littered with uncleared breakfast remnants. Ignored by the only two Waiters for 3 - 4 minutes, before one clear place on table whose other 3 places were uncleared was pointed at and the waiter said, "you can sit there." 15 minutes later I left without anyone having come even close, to take an order.
Checking out I was asked about my stay and gave this report. The pleasant Receptionist apologized for my breakfast experience - as she took payment for my bed AND breakfast. My reduced rate of £69 was a bargain, even without breakfast, but services included/offered really should be delivered...even by not-for-profit businesses. My fault, for giving another seaside hotel a chance to show that they be good for a business traveller...invariably breakfast seems only to cater for holidaymakers who have lots of time to breakfast.
Good enough but room and decor a little tired
We stayed for 1 night on a wednesday.
Upon arrival hotel didnt look like the photos. Reception staff were friendly and polite. Our room was on the 2nd floor. It was clean and tidy but nothing special for £89 per night. Despite having double glazing you could hear quite abit of noise from outside. We went for breakfast and most of the tables were reserved. The staff were busy and didnt have the time to show you to a table. They didnt seem happy in their work. When we got our breakfast, we were told to mind the hot plates sadly the food was only luke warm. Seemed to have good facilities for blind people but we wouldnt stay again.
Room was nice and clean, bright and airy, the wallpaper was falling off on one wall.
The pillows on both beds could with being replaced as they were flat and gave no support, The full English breakfast was hot but was greasy. The hotel has a lift but only for one side if like myself you have back and hip problems stairs can agrivate the pain. Our room was on the left hand side and you had two flights of stairs to reach it.
We have stopped here before and the service was ace on the second visit.
Some of the younger staff didn't seem to know what to with the breakfast orders on the second morning there was a lack of communication. But the first night and the reception staff were brilliant. And very helpful . we will be stopping again as every. One there is so friendly
5th July, Corona Sunsets Festival
Booked this hotel for me and a mate as we were going to the Corona Sunsets festival.
On arrival the staff were very friendly & helpful. The hotel was very clean and a lovely place, breakfast was great and again the staff were really friendly. Top Hotel
very dog friendly
delighted to have found this hotel .
the location is on the seafront and dogs are permitted on the beach directly opposite.
we travelled with our two dogs - a beagle and a japanese chin - there were two dogs bowls in the room and a medium size dog bed with a lovely fleece cover on top. we travel with our own bowls and beds anyway but this is only the 3rd time in 20 years of being a dog owner that i have been provided with bowls/beds for my dogs. i was a bit hesitant re booking as it is a hotel run for lesser sighted guests and i was concerned they thought i was bringing two guide dogs - not at all . all dogs are welcome - working and non working. although there for 2 nights it was only on a b+b basis - breakfast was very good, haven't seen a choice like that for quite some time i.e. kippers or poached egg on smoked haddock. the rooms were a good size, clean and tidy, windows opened easily and wide too. only downside was lack of wi-fi, i got it in my room but my daughter didn't in hers, to be fair the hotel doesn't say it's available in bedrooms, only a lounge or two and tv room ( which was closed ). i would very happily stay again, and i have already told two dog owning local friends as to how dog friendly it is !
Exceeded our expectations.
Excellent location on sea front with a very pleasant garden.A big plus point has to be the free parking.Our room was spotless - not even any scale in the kettle .
The breakfast was lovely & the staff were very pleasant & helpful.Perhaps the decor might be a little dated but we would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel.
