“Absolute Bliss…”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago

3 days of Absolute Bliss, thanks to my wife of 21 years. We stayed in the Boudoir basement apartment and was perfect for all our needs. Bedroom was very large and cosy with a romantic bed, with lots of bounce…..!
The second room featured a day bed and facilities to make tea and coffee also TV and the radio playing welcomed you into the room which was a nice touch.
The bathroom was just right only down fall ways the plug did not hold water in bath for long.
And leading from the bathroom was a small courtyard which was a god sent as I am a smoker and there are not May hotels that allow smoking.
For a extra charge we had breakfast in bed and was delightful. Finally the staff where very helpfully, kind and considerate and greeted you with a smile with each encounter. Once’s again We would like to thank management and staff for there warm welcome and attention to detail, which allowed my wife & I to rekindle our love for one another. And of course we will be returning for a longer stay next time and have recommended the hotel to our family and friends who are planning a visit soon.

Lovely New review!


5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago

I booked a night in this hotel for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was wonderful and totally exceeded my expectations.

I had originally booked the Little Venice suite however received a call from Neil saying that unfortunately there was a problem with the shower which wasn’t able to be rectified by the time of our visit. He offered me the Renaissance suite along with another (cannot remember which one) instead and I went for Renaissance as the style was similar to Little Venice. I was quite disappointed as I picked the hotel solely for that room but Neil was very lovely on the phone and as I work in property I understand these kinds of things happen sometimes. He offered us complimentary breakfast in bed for the trouble so I tried not to worry.

From the outside it doesn’t look too glam or like there will be much behind the door(!) but as soon as we entered the reception I was bowled over. The décor was great and service wonderful, all so helpful and really willing to go the extra mile for customers.

Entering our room I was so pleased, it was spacious and beautiful. I had ordered balloons for on the bed and specially requested Happy Birthday balloons which they accommodated and it looked great. The bathroom was on the smaller side but very clean so no complaints really.

Overall we had a great stay, bed was super comfy and we made use of their DVD library (in the reception) and a few snacks from the mini bar – not too pricey. Breakfast was good and all the staff we came across were a delight.

Would absolutely recommend!

The Presidents of The United States of America at the Concord 2 on the 23rd of February


The Presidents of The United States of America (also known as PUSA) were formed in Seattle in the wake of the early nineties post-grunge era by childhood friends Chris Ballew (vocals, “basitar”) and Dave Dederer (“guitbass” and backing vocals), who were joined by drummer Jason Finn before their self-titled debut album hit double-platinum in 1994. 

Their style was a refreshing antidote to the grungy angst Seattle had become a byword for, consisting of short and humorous punk-rock songs, which proved popular with critics and audiences alike and earned the band two Grammy nominations.

PUSA’s enormously successful debut included such legendary hits as “Peaches”, “Lump” and “Kitty”, and was followed by worldwide tours and a second album “II” in 1996.  By the end of 1997 the band had split up, followed by a rarities album “Pure Frosting” and a farewell concert in 1998.  The band had a brief reunion in 2000 under the shortened moniker of “The Presidents” and third album “Freaked Out and Small”, followed by another longer hiatus.  

Two more albums followed (2004′s “Love Everybody” and 2008′s “These Are The Good Times People”) with Dederer’s replacement Andrew McKeag, and this tour will be a very rare chance to catch the band in the very intimate surroundings of Concorde2.

The Sea Spray Hotel is only 10-15mins walking distance from the Concorde 2 !

Reel Big Fish at The Concorde 2 on the 13th of February

Californian ska punk band Reel Big Fish may have gone through many transformations since its conception in 1992, but one thing is still guaranteed; these guys can put on a live show that will blow your mind. Best known for their 1997 hit “Sell Out“, the band shot into MTV mainstream alongside the likes of No Doubt and Sublime, and remained a major figure in the ska punk movement throughout the 90s. After releasing albums “Cheer Up!” (2002) and “We’re Not Happy ‘Til You’re Not Happy” (2005) on Jive Records, Reel Big Fish parted ways with the record company in January 2006. Since then the band have released material independently and continued to tour non-stop (playing over 250 shows a year all over the world), and still remaining an unquestionable force in the ska punk movement.

The first part will be Less Than Jake
