The Yelton Hotel now The White Rock Hotel where we have our SMART coffee meets. Lots of bands used to play here.

Matt Thomas… I went in there today for a cuppa Alan and was well impressed.I havent been in there since the Yelton!!!!!!

Andre Martin… But don’t expect to catch any of these buses, the 99route still runs, but not this vehicle. but the others in shot, I expect have long gone to those bus routes in the sky

Andy Qunta… Many good memories of the Yelton! Didn’t know it’s now the White Rock Hotel!

Jim Breeds… Wha!t? Even the 157 (later the 457) route has gone? I’ve stayed at the White Rock a few times in the last few years when in town. Very nice. But the Jenny Lind is cheaper and has real ale, so that’s usually where we stay now 🙂

John Storer… I was last down a couple of years back and needed a hotel fast. The only place with vacancies was The White Rock Hotel. Having never heard of it, I asked for directions and realised where they were located. “Didn’t that used to be The Yelton?” I enquired, with some trepidation. “Yes”, said the receptionist, “but its changed a lot since then”. And, indeed, it had! Really nice hotel, very comfy rooms, and one of the best hotel cooked breakfasts I’d had for a long time.

Jim Breeds… The breakfasts are legendary. I think they get a mention on trip advisor

Nigel Ford… Michael Notley owned the Yelton (his surname backwards) aswell as a farm out at Magham down

Eileen MacNaughtan… My mum and dad always wanted to stay at the yelton during the 1960s but couldn’t afford it. My husband and I booked in for a long weekend I think during the late 80s. We had a huge old dated room with a old bathroom, sea view on the first floor. Old fashioned luxury a glimpse of bygone days. We even parked in the car park at the rear and went in the back door.The dining room was large with old fashioned furniture. I’m glad I experienced this, in memory of my parent’s and the wonderful holidays they gave me. It was like stepping back in time.

Mick O’Dowd…Loved The Yelton with the live bands . There was also a great mix of “odd” people who seemed to be regulars. Great venue. Still is a nice venue for SMART

Peter Houghton… I used to work in the kitchens in the 70s and I remember they filmed a TV series using the kitchen. The people who owned it, their name was Notley
