Small double room but other than that very clean and newly decorated.
Botany Bay Hotel
A really lovely break at the Botany Bay Hotel.
Very comfortable room which was the superior room overlooking the sea with a juliette balcony. Exceptionally clean and very friendly reception staff. The breakfast was very good and we booked in advance our two evening meals which were delicious. Lovely surroundings on a cliff top and lots of places to visit.
I booked a family room via Laterooms.com, which described the room as a suite of two rooms both with sea views.
When we arrived we were told that none of the family rooms had sea view. We got an upgrade to the only suite in the hotel eventually and this was the only high note of the visit. Only one room had a sea view but the suite was roomy and charming. If you take this room, the sunrise was magical from the turret and well worth setting the alarm for. When I asked for the restaurant for dinner I was directed to a part of the bar lounge which had “table service”. We picked a table on the open air decking. The chap left us with menus but no wine list, and then promptly disappeared. Nobody came to the table for half an hour until I attracted the attention of the waitress (who could have done with a longer uniform shirt so that it is tucked in) who apparently did not think that it might be an idea to pay a visit to the decking area now and again. She took our order but still no wine list. When the food arrived, there was no cutlery on the table. The grilled fish was probably pan friend in a light batter. A parent came right up to the table to shout at her child who was playing in front of the hotel. The latter promptly approached and started to kick his ball against the wall on which the decking sat, and on which I was trying to have dinner. As to the problem with the booking, the hotel said that Laterooms mis-described the room. Laterooms said that there was in fact a sea view family room but the hotel should not have taken my booking because it had already been taken. It also said that the description of a room as a suite was also down to the hotel and the hotel has agreed to change it. Needless to say, this has not happened. The rooms are more accurately described in the hotel’s own website so the jury is still out as to where the blame lies. The hotel has a lot of potential because of its location and setting but it is being run like a seaside pub with rooms. It badly needs a catering manager to set proper standards of coking and for the waiting staff.
Beautifully furnished rooms.
Very clean. Lovely staff. We enjoyed our one night stay very much.
The Botany Bay Hotel
Hotel was lovely, really clean, food excellent, staff very helpful.
The whole place was perfect.
As soon as we walked in we were made very welcome by staff. Our room was beautiful with a beautiful room. A short walk away from different bays made the afternoons perfect for us. In the evening we had food in the bar and it was delicious food. We both had steak which was cooked to perfection. We couldn't of wished for a better night away from reality.
Botany Bay Hotel
My mother and I stayed at the Botany to attend a family funeral.
The Hotel had recently been refurbished to a high standard. We found the decor throughout delightful and the proximity to the sea with sea views great. Staff were friendly and on the ball. Breakfast was good and the service was efficient. At £60 per night for a single room it was definitely good value. Will stay again.
Bottany Bay Hotel, not all it seems.
I'm sure I booked a double, though found ourselves in a twin.
Room seemed ok.. Until the next morning. The floors are made of papier mache and the family in the room above seemed to want to come through them. That spoilt the whole night.
The shower also didn't work properly- lukewarm at best.
