Stayed here on a Monday and Tuesday. Room was lovely, quiet and well appointed. Wifi was excellent. Gym was reasonably well equipped. Pool was clean. Sauna and steamroom were nice and hot. Bar food was surprisingly excellent. Parking could be an issue - i would definitely book in advance. Really couldn't fault this place.

My wife and I spent a couple of nights here during a midweek break to Bournemouth, and were very impressed with the standard of the facilities, food and service. Although our (balcony) room was fairly small, with traditional dark furniture, it was well equipped and clean, with a comfortable bed. Downstairs the bar and restaurant areas were immaculate and the... More

Well, it has been hard at work this past twelve months and what a lovely surprise! We arrived Friday evening for a planned weekend event and have to say it was faultless.... More
