    Very good

    Excellent location, grand style to the building, good parking.

    The orange juice at breakfast was extremely weak and watery. Hoped that the mixed grill would have had some other vegetables than just one tomato

    Fabulous

    The family rooms were large and spacious as was the bathroom, ample space for 2 adults 2 kids sharing. Slightly more than basic bathroom and complimentary supplies which makes a nice change.

    The two single beds pushed together could have been workable as a double for couples however the bedding supplied and made up on the beds were done as singles rather than double bedding even though they were pushed together, so a little pointless but the beds were comfortable nevertheless.

    Stayed at Burlington for 5 nights;found staff very helpful.only 15 mins. Walk from town. Room very comfortable-but small ;unfortunally not a sea view-but no matter 2 minutes walk to see it! Didn't have breakfast thought it was rather 'pricey'; Very nice bar downstairs at average prices visited once- very quiet then suddenly besieged by a 'mature' group of individuals who were obviously enjoying themselves [very disciplined I might add] My wife and I were on 3rd floor but there were 2 lifts-unfortunately only 1 was in operation.Required bathmat which was supplied within minutes ;excellent shower and double- bed.

    Parking rather 'tight' in hotel but usually numerous spaces on roadside surrounding .

    The staff at the Burlington were very friendly throughout the stay. When we checked in it was all very quick and easy which is always good after a 500 mile drive. We also had our pet dog with us which was no problem for this hotel and they even left a water bowl out for him which is a nice touch. Rooms where of a very nice size for a 3 star. Maybe it was because we were in the end room but none the less we enjoyed the room.

    The food in the restaurent was not that great. The steak was very oily which i did not like.

    For a first visit the hotel was very good, just a stones throw to where I needed to be for the event that I was attending during that evening, quick and easy check in, great breakfast and a good room with an en-suite shower!

    They should have a price avalible which has breakfast included so you dont have to pay the extra up front on your arrival at the hotel.

    Very good

    The hotel itself is a wonderful large victorian building with a lovely bar area. It is in a great location very close to the Leas promenade and its panoramic view of the English channel.

    My only grumble was that the bed was hard and a rather old looking blanket provided instead of a quilt so I didn't have a good night's sleep.

    Exceptional

    The staff were excellent and the room was possibly the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Although a little dated in decor they did not detract from an enjoyible stay

    The decor was a little dated and the hotel could do with a bit of TLC

    Exceptional

    The hotel was full of character, clean and the food was excellent. The location was very good with lovely sea walks.

    No complaints at all

    Superb

    The staff at this hotel are particularly helpful, friendly and efficient. Also the waiters during meals are polite and attentitive. This will be the third time I have stayed in this hotel and would recommend it for location and excellant service.

    You sometimes have to wait for sometime to get served at the bar when the hotel is not busy.It is often deserted behind the bar and takes some time to get service even if you ask.

    Superb

    I particularly liked the 'traditional' feel of the Hotel which was welcoming, very well maintained and extremely spacious. It has a certain 'charm' that one doesn't feel very often - and I stay in various Hotels on a weekly basis.

    The hotel is good value if you can get a deal, like we did. The staff were helpful and the room although compact, was nice and clean.

    The placement of the hotel

    Non of the windows looked like they have been cleaned in 50 years. Staff did not know much about the area in terms of restaurants.
