We visited here over the bank holiday with our dog. The owners were very friendly and accommodating .We had a ground floor room with a modern shower and tea and coffee making facilities. Owners made sure we always managed to get a free parking place and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We enjoyed the cooked breakfast and local... More

The Hotel is very old and untended. The room we had (3 bed room) was on the ground floor and therefore it was very loud. We stayed there for 3 nights and the beds have never been made and no cleaning either. The breakfast room is in the cellar and not very comfortable. The breakfast was good and Miles and... More

The owners are very kind and welcoming. The rooms are clean and great. Our shower was a double enclosure and the... More

I stayed at this Hotel in July 2015 with my daughter her husband and my grandchildren, we had 2 rooms .a double and a family room. The rooms are very basic. There is some sort of generator humming away very loudly all night! It was very expensive too. The plush hotel opposite was cheaper. If your traveling to Bournemouth shop... More

Stayed for 4 nights with two other friends. We had a great time at this hotel and definitely coming back to this place whenever I'd come back to the south! Owners are really kind and will help you out when asked for. Rooms look good. The only small thing I found was that there is a lack of pressure on... More

Fantastic stay for me and my friends. Owners are amazing. Defo go back and stay here if I ever go back the Bournemouth. Didn't choose to have the breakfast because we knew we wouldn't be up it time. Didn't care what time we strolled in at.
