        Arriving at the hotel I was impressed by the neatness of the grounds and clean, bright facade. The lobby area was elegant and new refurbished creating a really good first impression. The staff were friendly, polite and welcoming: It was the first time in a long time that I was greated by name in a hotel, even before i'd opened my mouth! The room was spacious with loads of storage, it was light and airy. Wifi is free with good connection speed and quality. The furnishings are basic but comfortable and the TV looked ancient but worked fine. All in all very positive. Lovely and quiet

        The room was large and bathroom too. We had plenty of space for 3 of us and we could fit baby's cot too. Very clean in the room. We had room behind main building,it is very comfortable for families with pushchairs because from the road can go direclty to the room,no stairs. It is nice hotel,good location. But they really need to improve customer service.

        Staff is useless, not friendly, customer service is very poor.i called to the hotel 2 days before to ask about baby's cot and ladie said that we have to bring our cot with us because hotel will not provide. When we came memb.of staff said that hotel provides cots.Then we could not find our room and asked for help, member of staff was pissed off , went to show us the room,lost her shoe on the way,came back to pick it up,just afwul!!! then at the end they wanted to charge us again for the car park, when we gave a key she didn't say anything nice like thank you for staying in our hotel.Heater didn't work. Didn't work internet. Swiming pool is nice and large but water a bit cold. You cannot take a shower naked because camera is looking at you.

        room spacious and clean

        thought we were staying in hotel but when arrived told we would be staying in a chalet around the back - but the accommodation was fine. Breakfast in hotel expensive and they never replaced items when they ran out. Bar in hotel closed quite early.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and always thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is in excellent location for both the sea front and the town centre. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and the breakfast is excellent. Would not hesitate to continue staying there when visiting Bournemouth.

      • Couple
        7.4

        Close to the beach, close to good restaurants, staff were helpful.

        The bed was two singles pushed together so the bed dipped in the middle. Not very comfortable.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

        Our room was a bit chilly even when we tried to turn up the radiator.

        8.2

        I was very impressed with the over all feel good feeling of this Hotel. The staff were very professional and the hotel was clean and well ran. I would stay there again.

        The rooms were slightly on the small side and the floor boards creaked a lot.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The staff were first-class. They gave the impression of actually enjoying their work, which was refreshing

        The washbasin in the bathroom was too small

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        We stayed as a large group including one elderly person and another person who was recovering from an accident and in a wheel chair. The staff could not have helped us more. We had rooms which were perfect for the two not so active people. Food was fantastic. Hotel within walking distance to shops and beach, perfect location.
