My husband and I just wanted to get away from London on Valentine's day somewhere nice and quiet.The Liston hotel was just perfect place for us!We only stayed a night,but had a great time.Warm and friendly welcome by mrs Diane,absolutely spacious and very clean room,comfortable bed to have a good rest.The hotel has a lovely decor throughout that makes you feel home.
Location is just right,walking distance to the sea and a lovely restaurant to have a romantic meal near by!
All in all just great:)

Having been to this hotel earlier in the year and liked it so much, we decided to return for the New Year break with National Holidays. It was all and more than we could have expected. On arrival we were greeted by Diane who invited us into the bar where she served hot punch and hot mince pies. Here she greeted each guest and presented our room key. The room was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm, what more could one want.
All the meals were excellent, served piping hot. The evening entertainment was very good and the New Year's Eve presentation was excellent. Diane could not have done better!
Look forward to returning again.

Room tip: Upgrade for a superior with balcony. Excellent!

As a group going for a New Years break with National Express, we had researched previous reviews when we decided to stay at this hotel. The entertainment was good, although the New Year's Day entertainment was so good, that it should have had top billing for the New Year's Eve! Staffing was a little sparse, and meal service was not smooth. In the hotel, some rooms were not as warm as occupants would have wished, and other rooms need an upgrade in the furniture. The towels are ready for change, no longer fluffy, and notices on the firedoors to state which room numbers are through the doors is particularly necessary. The place is a bit of a rabbit warren, and many found it difficult to find their way to their room. The lift is slow to say the least. All in all, the family try hard, though.

Room tip: Room 22 was nice and warm. Room 24 nicely decorated.

Just returned from a lovely Christmas break at the Liston courtesy of National Holidays.Diana and her family presented Xmas as it should be. Hotel was tastefully decorated and clean.It was clear a lot of effort had been put to create a Chritmassy atmosphere in the old style which suited the clientele of a senior disposition some of whom return year on year. The food was good although not spectacular as onprevious visits but the seven course Xmas dinner made up for that.Entertainment was pretty average and would not have suited the all singing dancing brigade.For a nice traditional Christmas though we would find it hard to beat. A spcial thanks to Richard the driver who managed to get us home safely through horrendous weather conditions

Room tip: pay the extra supplement

Spent a fantastic Christmas at this wonderful family run hotel. The family could not do enough for you. We had a loose hande on the shower in our bathroom it was dealt with immediately. The food and entertainment was first class. The rooms and hotel were clean and welcoming. We will definately return!
