"First of all, I must apologise to the hotel and her staff that this review is very late. I was supposed to have been written the first time we visited the hotel but for some reason was overlooked. We had visited Bognor last December because we wanted to have a look around, but more specifically to visit Littlehampton. Although the hotel had been warm and welcoming and the staff lovely, the weather was unkind to us and we barely managed to get out of the door, it was so cold and windy. However, as it turned out, they were running a very special offer for the following March so we decided to rebook and try again. At a price of £244 for B&B for four nights for the two of us, it was impossible to resist. As it turns out this could be our last holiday for some time as it looks as though we might be incarcerated by the government for the next four months! On the Monday morning I dropped Jean off at her hairdressers for the weekly wash and blow dry whilst I went and filled the car with petrol. Once I had picked up “she who must be obeyed”, we were off. It was a lovely drive in glorious sunshine. We took our time and stopped for lunch at the Rownhams Services. The coffee and sandwiches from Costa went down well. From Poole it is a pleasant drive to Bognor, especially once one has left the M27 for the A27. We arrived a little before check-in time but as usual with Best Western hotels this was not a problem. We had been upgraded to one of their better rooms and we found it to be very much to our liking. Very comfortable beds, a large walk in shower and a lovely sea view. Once unpacked we went out again for a walk along the promenade. The sun was shining, the wind was not too bad and we were at peace with the world. Breakfast at the Beachcroft has been changed a little to make things safer during these problematic times. The tables have been rearranged so that every person has their 6ft of separation. The cereal and fruit buffet has been discontinued for obvious reasons and the breakfast “starters” are now served to order. Jean ordered the fresh fruit salad and I ordered the stewed fruit compote. Jean followed with the full English of fried egg, fried bread, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, beans, grilled ½ tomato and hash brown. I was just a little better as I had scrambled eggs and did not have the tomato or hash brown! The fruits were excellent. A nice mixture of fresh fruits in a large bowl were placed in front of Jean. In my bowl were poached apple, peach, apricot, pear and prunes. It was a huge portion but I managed to beat it. The cooked food was perfect. Eggs cooked just how we like them, fried bread crisp but not hard, a very tasty sausage and an excellent rasher of grilled bacon. A rack of brown toast and pots of tea and coffee completed our feast. The breakfasts each day, although we rang the changes with such things as kippers, poached eggs and vegetarian breakfast, were just as good. Well prepared and presented, generous proportions "
"Thankfully this break was booked before the madness that is now occurring.After following the brown tourist signs with the hotels name on and not expecting it to be at the end of a small cul-de-sac we knew immediately it was a good place to stay, Adjacent to the beach and promenade the fresh clean appearance and parking bays set out to the front giving ample space for even the largest 4x4. Enter into a clean and bright reception where Tom gave us a warm welcome and efficient service throughout our stay. A lovely clean bright room with an excellent large power shower en-suite albeit after quite a climb that would not be to everyone's liking. Dinner and breakfast gave us excellent choices with food cooked to perfection, care taken with presentation and hot food served on piping hot plates.(Always a good sign in my book). Restaurant staff were always attentive without fussing and Louis our ever present waiter was always on hand whenever required. Would certainly recommend this hotel to others and I just hope the business can pull through this plague that has beset us all as we definitely want to return."
"my brother who is living with MS and uses an electric wheelchair stayed here for 2 nights. The staff were so helpful from the initial call right through to check out! when I say the whole staff team I mean just,maintenance man measured doorways,reception showed me the room before booking and worked out how to move furniture to maximise space.Reception staff were so helpful when my brothers chair broke down finding numbers and generally supporting us special Thank you to Dominic who came to our rescue even before he knew we had booked a room there He came outside to assist us when the chair broke down up on the seafront and went above and beyond Thank you what a lovely team! Although the Hotel is not adapted for wheelchair users they helped us make the stay work a little adaptation would make it a perfect place."
