The staff were very helpful. Plenty of parking. Hotel was very busy. We did a deal including breakfast, and evening meal. We went with friends. We both opted to upgrade our deals to include Sea view rooms, well worth that little extra..Rooms were fine, great views in 358, were better than 359 due to bigger windows. Rooms were kept nice...

Having read some of the negative reviews for this hotel I really cannot understand what people are moaning about!! We have just returned for a 5 day break traveling with Just Go Holidays. From the moment we got on the coach everything was superb, especially the driver, Ian. We arrived at the hotel & was greeted by the manager. We... More

I stayed here as part of a work trip where we had taken over a few hotels along the seafront. A beautiful setting for any of the hotels and some beautiful photography opportunities early morning and late evening. The staff were incredibly friendly and really accommodating with any requests we had, calling us taxis and arranging extra tea & coffee... More

This hotel was clean and the location was ideal for our first trip to Bournemouth. We stayed two nights. Breakfast was very adequate and the garden room which was the restaurant would be a great space in the summer. A great weekend.

We have stayed in this hotel and their sister hotel The Cumberland for the last 5 years. The food was very good although all the meals are now buffet, Free WI-FI did work in the main areas but would not work in our bedroom, The rooms are very clean and the staff very friendly I would always stay there again

They had an excellent time. Food excellent and staff could not do enough for them. They had not stayed at the hotel before... More

We had a wonderful stay with excellent food in a very friendly atmosphere. The staff were so attentive, polite, cheerful with nothing being too much trouble. The managers were also constantly but very unobtrusively checking that everything was just right. Would highly recommend this hotel. There were 5 of us in our group and we all agreed what a great...
