Less than a minute’s walk from the seafront, the town centre and the Grand Pavilion make the Lorelei Hotel the perfect location; whether for a holiday, work related or even just a short break.
Not only a hotel, The Lorelei is a very busy pub open to nonresidents, with a range of different real ales and continental lagers you wouldn’t normally expect to find.
The building itself is around 100 years old and during the 1st World War, it was originally two separate buildings, with one half believed to be used as a hospice for the injured and dying soldiers.
Many years later, during the 1960’s, the two buildings were bought by a man named Ted James, an ex-pilot who decided to name the pub after the rocky headland on the River Rhine, where he first met his German wife. Legend says that a maiden named ‘the Lorelei’ lived on the rock and lured sailors to their death with her song!
It is now owned by Andy and Sue Flook and has been for the past 17 years with no brewery influence. They have transformed the old derelict building into a well-established business.
