Called in this morning for relaxing coffee. The bar area is grim. Dirt on the base of the bar could be scraped off with a knife. Tables are sticky and 'leather ' chairs revoltingly stained. We had to move to the wooden ones for cleanliness sake but the table was still sticky. Please buy some new trays for service- current... More

We stayed here in early may and will be going back next week. We personally think it is very good value for money and found the room very clean and the staff very helpful. I must say that it hadn't changed much since my last visit in 1974 but that only adds to it's charm!! Overall it is very good... More

Viewing this hotel from the outside is deceptive to say the least. Upon entering into the bar area changed our opinions immediately even more so when entering our room. The exterior looks tired and was definitely a hidden gem. Our room was plainly decorated with all the amenities you needed to make your stay pleasant,TV,Wi fi,hair dryer (hidden in a... More

The room had a lovely view of the sea....that is my only positive. The doors were ridiculous heavy with silly handles which meant by the time you managed to open them a draft from the poorly fitted windows blew it shut leaving a loud echoing slam. The dining area, a pub bar, stunk of dogs and the carpet was filthy... More

This was the first hotel we stayed at in England. The staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable and the breakfast which was included was fantastic. Just accross the road from the sea it was a pleasant place to stay at a reasonable rate.

We have just returned from spending 4 nights here and had a great time. The hotel is tired in places but is currently undergoing improvements. The manager Justin and his team work well as jacks of all trades, and master of most, (one day we came across someone cleaning the carpet and was later served breakfast by her and finally... More

First the positive, our room was great we had two windows, one overlooking the park to the side and one facing the beach. The bed was very comfortable and the furniture seemed to have been recently replaced. The windows need changing as two of the handles were snapped off and there seemed to be tissue stuffed into the corner of... More

we took elderly parents for a saturday lunch. I did know the place was a bit shabby as we live locally and had a drink here previously. However the location is great with lovely picture windows overlooking Bournemouth bay so thought we would give it a try. My mother and I both ordered smoked mackerel salad which you could have...
