Our 2018 Tour of the North ended here - two nights in Skegness, just for fun! However, we wanted to avoid staying in the centre of seaside guest houses and this hotel was perfect in that respect. We had a room on second floor, with the second set of stairs proving tricky to navigate with large suitcase. Room was clean and tidy with sufficient space to move. Bathroom was a bit tricky with a control which was not totally clear for separate over bath shower. Fortunately, a very helpful chap from Reception was able to help us out! A fan was provided as the heat was a bit much.
On the second night we ate in the hotel restaurant; it was first night of a new menu and a real treat. Staff were pleasant and helpful, without obsequiousness; food was utterly delicious. Chicken and ginger wontons, in particular, are highly recommended as starters.
In terms of location, it is walking distance from the main drag, but far enough away not to feel hemmed in. This end of the Parade is very much quieter and definitely worth investment to encourage those who might appreciate that quality. The access to second floor and slightly maze-like quality of the hotel reduces to four stars, otherwise excellent. less
