Customer Rating: Mrs Clements, Hayling Island We felt the rooms were very basic. The bath and shower combination was very dangerous.There were no instructions as to how to operate the shower and water was scalding.

Customer Rating: Ms Doyle, London Great value, for a pleasant room a short drive from some beautiful sites. The breakfast and other food we had at the pub was very ordinary, but can't complain given the price. Street parking near the hotel was challenging, but there's a multi-storey parking lot nearby that only cost us a few pounds to park overnight.

Customer Rating: Mrs Richards, Nottingham Room a little small, could do with coat of paint, thick dust behind bedside cabinets just need a little more care in the cleaning. Breakfasts excellent choice. Evening meals excellent choice. Car park not adequate for amount of rooms, first come gets a space, if not have to park in multi storey at end of road. No lift, so struggle to get up and down stairs if less able. Staff very helpful and friendly

Customer Rating: Mr Pearce, Brierley Hill

Customer Rating: Mrs Beverley, Cranbrook Everyone's experience is different so I don't make recommendations to friends and family unless we are very very impressed. Unfortunately the bathroom had a damp smell and the bed was hard. Otherwise was quiet after pub closed and no loud seagull noise so slept well into morning, albeit with an achy back. The breakfast was good and for a very old building they have lots of maintenance challenges. The rooms area bit dated like many hotels, the corridors and stairways definitely need redecorating. Pub had good atmosphere on Quiz night, which we enjoyed. Lots of pubs and restaurants around as in good position near the quay.

Customer Rating: Ms Jones, Oxon

Customer Rating: Miss Goldthorpe, Kettering The location of the Antelope is fantastic, really near the quay and in the heart of the old town, which is beautiful. Car parking is included, which was a real bonus, and we had a dog friendly room so we could take our dog with us. The staff were all lovely and made our stay a good one. We had an issue with a running toilet upon arrival, but this was resolved to our satisfaction when mentioned.
