  • The location is great, good value hotel in Bournemouth close to the sea and restaurants, reception has been recently refurbished and is impressive. Family rooms are available.

    Indoor decor was very dated and tired, the bedroom was also not adequately clean.

  • Great location in the town, large free car park and convenient for beach. Fantastic hotel for the price and excellent Venue. A good breakfast buffet style, staff really nice and receptionist friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, food was fresh and waitresses were lovely and made the dining experience a pleasure.

    Poor quality old furniture, also the attitude of the person on reception was unaceptable and rude, shower was very dated. The tea was disgusting can you make a bad cup of tea and gardens were poorly maintained.

  • The location is excellent and the car park is very good and spacious. Perfect hotel for family get together and the recption / lobby and bar area is clean and relatively modern. All of the staff could not have been more helpful, rooms are comfortable and fresh towels every day and top up of coffee. The breakfast is plentiful and varied.

    No views unfortunately and a 10 minute walk from the very busy bournmeouth sea front. The place is badly in need of a makeover and the bedrooms are tired and the bathroom need refurbishing. The maids work wonders for the untidy amongst us.
