Stayed as husband thought it would be nicer than premier inn. Wrong! Room was on 4th floor and lift was working. Yeah ! Room had separate lounge with sofa bed and ironing board!. Wardrobe was in this room but long mirror was in the adjoining bedroom. This meant clothes had to be put on in lounge and then checked in... More

As if the location wasn't perfect enough, within walking distance to the Square, the Triangle, the park and the beach, the staff at the Park Central Hotel is outstanding. Everyone at the front desk was friendly and when we got back to the hotel after a long day out it was like coming home. Francesca was a particular standout. The... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Park Central hotel as we love Bournemouth, and needed a place to stay for the night. Bournemouth isnt a cheap place to stay, and we wanted to be on the waterfront so we were prepared to pay a high price. For one night in a Executive room it was only 140 pounds, which... More

After sharing a wonderful Birthday celebration here last year we thought we'd return again this year. We were delighted to enjoy yet another wonderful break. In fact this time we stayed an extra night too. This time we booked sea views, mainly to see the dawn sky, the soft light at sunrise, weather (clouds) allowing. Beautiful :) Perfect in all... More

We booked this as it was opposite the conference centre and above our favourite Bournemouth restaurant. Fortunately we booked a suite, I'm not sure how small normal rooms are, but this was adequate. The room was very clean and tidy, unusually the bed was also vomfortable, the pillow did smell though which was a little off putting, but as I... More

During our two previous trips to Bournemouth we stayed at another hotel, but after a dispute with the 'manager' who thought that being condescending and chauvinistic equalled good customer service, I decided to take my money and custom elsewhere. After reading the mixed reviews on here I decided to book primarily because of the location, being directly across the road... More

You have expectations when you book a 'luxury' four star hotel (their words). You cannot deny the hotel is in a good location - beyond that I struggle to see what was luxury about it. Check in was efficient and friendly, but it was downhill from there... The room was big but very, very basic. The layout was terrible, tv... More

My partner and I stayed here for his birthday. I booked it as it was rated 4 star hotel. The staff were excellent and upgraded us which I was very happy about. However the room was very basic and the bed was uncomfortable. The view was great though overlooking the sea. At breakfast again the staff were very friendly but... More
