We came here for a long weekend before Christmas. We were warmly welcomed and quickly shown to our room. Our room didn't have a bath so my partner went to reception and we were immediately moved with minimum of fuss. Room (308) was large and spotless with a pleasant sea view. Close to the beach and the town centre the... More

We had to go to Bournemouth for a couple of days and found a deal from Travelzoo for this hotel. We weren't sure what to expect, but were not disappointed. The hotel is lovely, superb location, spotlessly clean and exceptional staff. We inadvertantly left a bag of presents in our room when we left to go home, and when we... More

We were warmly welcomed and our registration was handled very professionally. We appreciated the upgrade to a sea view room on the fifth floor.The room itself... More

We stayed for two nights here to attend concerts across the road at the BIC and were very happy with the hotel. The room was excellent, very clean and breakfast was good - plenty of pastries etc and hot breakfast served to your table. We found the staff to be very friendly. The only slight issue might be that the... More

Excellent staff, very helpful as I was running late. Surprised it didn't cater for people returning after a night out at the BIC across the road, food finishes in the restaurant at 10pm and the sandwich menu is very poor, Breakfast OK. Disabled access is interesting, they have good ramps up to the front door on either side, but the... More

A warm welcome and upgraded room. The food and service was amazing. The only drawback was that there is no car park and you pay £7.50 to firstly, park, unload, then take the car to the car park across the road, walk back in the rain and do the reverse the following morning.

I have noted your comments regarding the Bournemouth International parking – unfortunately, we do not have the space onsite to accommodate a car park, aside from three separate disabled spaces for guests with a blue-badge.
