                        The heated swimming pool outside.

                        Family rooms are not comfortable in that the pull out sofa bed has very large springs that are not well padded and therefore 'bumpy' and the zed bed is very basic. The main king size bed was fine so that if you had 2 rooms that would be ok but expensive!The pool is old and cracked, and the filter does not work efficiently, but it is heated which is a big bonus with the British unpredictable weather!

                        Lovely views from our sea-view room. Breakfast was also lovely and staff very friendly.

                        We were "upgraded" - which was lovely, but on entering the room it was clear it had been used by someone before we got there - left over fruit on the table, opened water bottle, imprint of someone lying on the bed, hand towel used in the bathroom etc. We phoned reception and they did offer to move us but we were happy that they make the room good while we had dinner - which they did.

                        The young man on reception was very professional, helpful and informative. I had an upgrade on the room, which was very comfortable and of a high standard. I wouldn't hesitate booking this hotel again.

                        We stayed on Sat and Sun nights. Sat was excellent but on Sun the service was unacceptably slow and the food was not all good. Stale bread rolls for breakfast and tired uneatable lettuce garnish used. Very friendly staff though who made us most welcome.

                        The hotel and facilities were reasonable. The dinner and breakfast were good. The staff were polite and well turned out.

                        The hotel looks "tired" and needs refurbishment. The room layout could be better. For instance, a large armchair was positioned in front of the wardrobe doorsmaking access difficult. The lock on the bathroom door was missing. Access from the rear car park is via a side door, but the direction signs from this door to reception are inadequate. From reception to the car park side door there doesn't appear to be any signs. Even hotel staff we asked did not know the way to the carpark. I found this annoying and a reflection on poor management. The hotel was OK but only fair value for money and on that basis, I would not recommend it.

                        Very comfortable and spa was a big extra

                        The dinner meal had very few vegetables on the plate, minimalist. I prefer meat and plate full of vegetables.

                        Good location on sea front. Beautiful building lots of victorian features. Very good breakfast lots of variety. Effecient watier service. Very comfertable bed nice sitting area with table in room. Nice gardens and pool.

                        Drinks were a bit on the expensive side. Car park was difficult to find but reception soon assisted with accurate instructions. We were in the west wing which is on floor 1 1/2 which made it hard to find from lift when we arrived

                        Sheila on reception (petite, big red lips) Superb room 115, thank you.

                        Breakfast, it was very busy that morning so we are prepared to make allowances. However, the food was cold, staff slow and inefficient, and unforgivable - serving coffee and tea from the same pot. Tea infested coffee is disgusting.

                        The room was very large and comfortable and the bed very comfortable. The head receptionist was very pleasant and helpful, also the head waiter. The location was excellent for walking into Bournemouth town centre.

                        On our visit the hotel was being used as a wedding venue and a fortieth birthday party venue and a 50th wedding anniversary party venue on the Saturday evening, so staff were a little thin on the ground.

                        Once you know that the hotel has the facilities you want, is located where you want it and is the right price, then it's all down to the way your treated at the hotel. The staff at this hotel were magnificent: we needed an extra bed in one of the rooms for an extra guest: no problem. We had special dietary requests: no problem. We forgot to order breakfast one day: no problem. We needed two sunbeds around the pool; no problem. We wanted a fridge; no problem. Simply put, they were well-trained and the answer was always 'yes', before you had asked a question. The hotel was magnificently set out, looking a little like the inside of the Titanic, as my daughter said. There was a free car park: although we couldn't use the restaurants, everyone said that the food was delicious. The bars were well stocked and well-run. It was a five minute walk to the centre of town. In short, it is a great hotel and I thoroughly recommend it.

                        There is honestly nothing I can write here.

                        This was booked as a special celebration and the room and staff made it a very enjoyable visit. The hotel is in a great location, just far enough out of the main noise of town and the position is stunning as were the views from our room.
