Great venue for conference.Spacious, clean . Although internal areas well signposted I still managed to get lost on occasions. Poor lunches..not enough sandwiches nor variety when there were. Hot alternatives...tasteless. catering staff..most were cheerful and very apologetic..not their problem 're food supplies.

Large conference type building with all the usual facilities you would expect. Situated smack bang in the centre of Bournemouth, just 5 mins drive from railway station and 2 mins walk from seafront.

Mixed review from myself for various reasons. I am marking this one down due to catering, lack of due process and intermittent wifi. Very unorganised catering which was ill-prepared for short sharp large volumes of customers at coffee and lunches. Ran out of hot water after I waited 30 minutes for my coffee? All week ran out of healthier options... More

Brilliant concert venue both seated and standing. Visited first to see Whitesnake. Who we've seen in the distance at other venues, but here it's up close and personal, fab. We also saw Joe Bonamassa here! The bars and lay out is excellent.

Went here for an RCN congress and could not fault it. I found it large and clean and full of education and I loved it. I would come again and the toilets are clean and with elevators to floors its also designed tor all. You do have to take steps to get in and don't know therefore how it fares... More

Had a fantastic night here. I actually thought it was going to be a much larger venue than it was but the fact that it wasn't was great. made it a lot easier to see the front and gave it a great atmosphere
