    Good, friendly staff, nice location, clean hotel

    The breakfast was a bit overpriced for the selection.

    Superb

    We stayed at West Cliff Inn (opposite Durley Dean) and it was so bad we had to change. We found the Durley Dean really clean, the rooms were newly decorated - slightly small but we didnt pay a lot, lovely beds, great service and a really enjoyable stay. We would recommend that the Durley Dean changes the way they serve breakfast - maybe to menu and order with a waitress rather than buffet. We would recommend this hotel to stay - again the service was excellent - very friendly and helpful staff. Room Tip: Try and get a room on the 1st floor or above Stayed July 2011, travelled as a couple

    The leisure centre does need updating and a good clean but still enjoyed having a swim. The breakfast is not worth £8 - but was still ok.

    We came for the weekend with friends & to take in a show, found the whole experience relaxing friendly & food great,

    We did however find the bar drinks very expensive.

    Fabulous

    We were amazed at how quiet it was in our room, it was a Saturday and Sunday night, and we only heard some footsteps from the room above for a while- which meant that we slept extremely well.

    Only that the water tap would not run cold for teeth cleaning- it was warm, thus rather off-putting.

    Easy access to BIC sea front and town on site parking

    We paid for an upgrade to a superior room but the bath room was tiny and thetre was no "view".

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The staff were extremely helpful and the rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely.

    I didn't like the leisure suite as the sauna was not hot enough and the swimming pool area was cold and no jacuzzi.

    Good

    Having said below comments regarding starter, the carvery turkey and vegetables were delicious.

    Restaurant (starter) food felt pre-prepared on plate and not very inspiring, also fish on the menu already pre-cooked and left out as buffet.

    Good

    Reception staff & waiting staff very friendly.

    Rooms very small and far too hot.

    Fabulous

    This is our third stay at the Durley Dene. It is a very clean comfortable hotel. We will return!

    The hotel car park is rather small and it can be a struggle to find street parking close to the hotel, on this ocassion we did. Although we did not visit the sauna and pool on this ocassion previously we found that they were not as well kept as the rest of the hotel.

    The refurbished room and its touches of quality.

    The bar area needs modernising, its a little stuck in a 1970's moment
