Room was spotless, staff superb, food was ( bear in mind a Xmas party so rapid serving of a room of sixty people) hot - great better than most places, nice to eat , high quality and well presented. Went expecting the usual slop as per other previous places and now impressed. Well done!!

Stayed in a large room for 2 adults and 10 and 8 year old Awkward dimensions meant the 2 boys couldnt share the sofabed so a single in the main room was provided Some space saving hidden wall bunk beds could solve this Courteous reception staff that pre-empted noise from the function room so we were put on second floor....

Lovely hotel close to Bournemouth International Centre, beaches and town centre. Slight drawback might be parking as the carpark is shared with the Connaught Lodge (on the same site). The staff were very attentive - even remembering we'd asked for extra butter on the first day and bringing us some with the toast!

I booked a Christmas party at the hotel with 6 of my closest friends. We had a fantastic time! We booked 3 superior doubles and 1 single room - all of which were ready before the actual 3pm check in time. All were beautifully presented and everything was in working order - I even used the ipod dock and that... More

I have stayed in this hotel many many times. The rooms are fantastic, the food outstanding !a must place to stay if you can get a room, failing that just go for the food experience. It is close to the town centre and all amenities

Beautifully decorated hotel in a great location with free parking too! Staff are a credit to the hotel - friendly, attentive and obviously trained to a high standard.

Lovely rooms, friendly and attentive staff, reasonably priced food and drinks. Spa/gym facilities very good and not too busy during our stay. The hotel itself is situated within a short walk of the beaches and town centre and on a quiet side road.

Booked this hotel for a one-night stay as we were going to a show at the BIC. Wish we could have stayed longer! The room was very comfortable and clean with good bathroom facilities and lovely fluffy towels (which were actually big enough to call a bath towel). The spa had a good sized swimming pool with jacuzzi plus a... More
