My wife and I stayed here for a midweek break following a hectic Christmas period. After reading the reviews on trip advisor and seeing that it was rated number one in Bournemouth, we thought at the price quoted it was too good an opportunity to miss. And we weren't disappointed. What a fantastic hotel. Right from checking in we were... More

Beautiful, immaculate hotel with brilliant facilities (indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room), great location, excellent food and a warm and exceptionally friendly atmosphere. We stayed over the weekend and left feeling totally relaxed and very well cared for! Room (exec double) was lovely, very large and with nice "extras" like a nespresso coffee machine, wireless speakers and bottles of water... More

The hotel is perfectly situated for easy access to the town centre. We appreciated the reserved parking space (although the spaces are quite tight). On arrival, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Check-in was quick and easy. Our room was spacious, warm and comfortable and the presence of a Nespresso machine a particular treat. It was nice that the... More

we booked this hotel for 4 couples to stay for a 50th birthday weekend. It was close to the town center and the beach, so we were able to enjoy the hotel facilities and also venture out to the town. The spa was very nice, pool, jacuzzi, steam and sauna, even treated myself to a treatment too. The hotel staff... More

Really good hotel in every respect. The service from an abundant presence of staff is second to none, and service with a smile too. Breakfast is one of the best I have experienced in this country and again the service was excellent, nothing too much trouble. Exceptional cleanliness and decor helped to make this a terrific base for spending a... More

A very fine, recently refurbished, hotel let down only by the parsimonious car park. The meals are of a very high quality for a hotel with an excellent breakfast spread. It is worth noting that in addition to the "full English" the breakfast menu has several cooked, including one vegetarian, options for a small supplement.

Many thanks for your 5 star review Biker in spite of the parsimonious car park - not really true given we have 66 spaces which is more than the majority of the hotels in Bournemouth and they are free!!. Why not treat yourself to an executive room next time which guarantees you an allocated space if booked direct with the... More

Arrived early and room ready. Wow the tulip suite was great. We had a look round and the hotel was great. Had a meal later and I asked for my steak well done, it arrived blue with with blood running out when cut. I return it. The hotel management and waiter were top notch on customer service, thankyou.

My husband, myself and my 6yr old son stayed here with my parents for Christmas 2014. I can honestly say that it was the best Christmas that I have ever had! The staff were the friendliest I have ever known. They made so much fuss over my son and he is desperate to come back to the hotel he had... More
