The waitresses tried their best to be quiet and efficient at breakfast.The dining room is smart. The food was excellent and the room very clean. Parking is a bonus!
Great hotel Suberb food no negatives .
Though it was a single room with limited space, the room was actually well laid out, very nicely decorated and very clean. Most comfortable - very impressed. Off road parking was an added advantage.
Nice big room very clean and the food was very good and a lot of it
A bar would have been nice
Lovely comfortable hotel, spacious rooms, very convenient to beach, theatres and shopping area. Great hotel for a short stay.
Great location just set back a bit from the seafront. Lovely comfortable room. Friendly staff. Free wifi that worked well and was a decent speed.
close to the sea front
car park very tight
Cleanliness, good breakfast and lovely dining room. Close to the beach and shops. Friendly and helpful staff.
Clean,comfortable bed and room,bathroom ok,nice shower. The real plus was the car parking,nice to leave car and walk etc.
TV in the room number 12 a pain to get any stations,breakfast was the big let down cold toast warm tea and breakfast should have been hot,our fault we should have complained at the time,but other things on our minds.
Everything was fine. I even had an upgraded chair put in my room during my 5 day stay.
The basin was rather small, but otherwise nothing negative.
Bathroom facilities are cheap and in deep need of renovation
Very satisfied with our two night stay at The Sheldon for the air show. Excellent large double room with very comfy bed and clean bathroom with bath and shower. Breakfast each morning was first class with a good choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurts and fruit juice plus a pot of tea or cups of coffee. Then a full English breakfast was cooked to order which was delicious and set us up for the day. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely recommend The Sheldon to friends and family.
Nothing to not like!

poor staff poor breakfast poor decor
Getting TV to work
Clean rooms, great breakfast
Location a short walk from the railway station and an even shorter walk to the beach. The excellent breakfast, cooked to order. The friendly staff and pleasant family atmosphere.
The shower was very hard to regulate: I got into the stream of water having tested it with my hand, but when it suddenly got too hot there was nowhere to escape to, because the shower head was fixed. I balanced on the edge of the shower tray (with difficulty) while I tried to alter the heat of the water. This was very difficult, because the shower controls were counter-intuitive. I'm afraid a child would have got badly scalded. This is my only criticism, but one that might make me think again about booking here. Will ask for a different room in future and see if shower is better.
