Enjoyed a great weekend here at the end of February. Reception kind and attentive, public rooms grand in a slightly old fashioned way. Breakfast was well laid out with a good choice. Set dinner was fine if a little restricted but we chose the fish which was excellent and puddings were particularly enjoyable. Rooms very comfortable. A great place, opposite... More

We stayed for two nights in a delightful sea view room. There was a balcony with wooden furniture - just perfect to sit and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine! Really comfy bed, well furnished (if getting a little shabby) and a huge bathroom with shower. The staff were excellent, unobtrusive but always available if needed.... More

Old fashioned charm and excellent service. The decor is Olde-Wolde Agatha Christie glamour. Breakfast was excellent and the service fabulous. Get a sea view if possible - the vista across the Solent is stunning. Very easy access to the beach and town centre.

I actually like this hotel, great location and the staff seemed really attentive. Car parking included and the breakfast was very nice with again good service.... however.... There really is no excuse for rusty shower curtain poles, rusty taps, towel rails hanging down looking like they will break at any minute and chipped and generally old looking furniture in the...

We recently stayed at the Hotel for three nights and had a wonderful time. The location is fantastic- overlooking the sea (our room had a sea view) and just a minutes walk from the cliff lift and the zig zag path to the fabulous beach. The town centre is about ten minutes away (walking)- close enough to get to but... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here last weekend for Valentines, and we definitely weren't disappointed! The hotel is like a really posh tardis, as it's massive on the inside with really grand decor. All the staff were really helpful and we checked in straight away, no hassle. Our room was really modern and spacious. We had a valentines meal the... More

Large clean room needs updating but ok. Staff behind reception not very friendly. Day one buffet breakfast not too bad but day two it was dried up and obviously been there for sometime. Disappointing for one of Bournemouth's prestigious hotels so not much of a treat.

When arriving at the hotel I was impressed to see the surroundind area, stunning location. The room was huge and had exceptional views but unfortunately the air con system did not cool down the room at all and left us awake at night struggling to go to sleep and drinking so much water to hydrate. We open the windows but... More
