Great Western Hotel Information


The Great Western Hotel is a detached Victorian villa, built in 1864. It stands in its own grounds with free onsite parking, a large garden with two pedestrian entrances from Sands Road. The car park is on belle view road, off sands road. This railway themed hotel is beautifully close to the sea and has a working 0-gage layout and other railway memorabilia throughout. The Victorian design means the rooms have lovely high ceilings and big windows to let in the sunlight and the building is full of character from the memorabilia and the cosy décor. We are situated in a fairly quiet neighbourhood, only minutes level walking distance to the harbour, beach and 5 minutes walk from the Rail / Steam trains, Local bus and National Express stations. The town centre is only a 5 minute walk away.
