Me and my partner and baby decided to spend the weekend in Bournemouth. We did a last minute booking which was fantastic value for money. The hotel has great character and our room was very big. All the staff were lovely, very welcoming and accommodating for our 6 month old. Dinner was fantastic. I regret not having a pudding now.... More

We stayed here for one night as we were seeing The Specials at the 02 in Boscombe. We were met by a very friendly receptionist and our room, 10, was OK. In fact it was huge, so big that I think they've struggled to know how to fill it; there was a double bed, two singles, a dressing table, a... More

Although the weather was pretty bad today, we sat in the cosy restaurant with a lovely sea view enjoying a lovely afternoon tea. The service was very good and the staff were very polite and we did not feel atall hurried. A relaxing way to spend the afternoon and very good value for money. The sandwich selection was good and...

Despite staying on one of the worst nights of the year so far we had an enjoyable time at the Cottonwood which was very comfortable and welcoming. Fortunately we were upgraded to a family room so we had plenty of space. The breakfast was good and plentiful and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent and... More

A trip for my daughters graduation from BU - the hotel is well located about 10 mins walk from BIC - everything was smooth and the breakfast (£extra) was very good indeed as was the service in the dining room. We would stay there again no problem.

We stayed here over the weekend and it was a lovely evening. Our room was at the front of the hotel looking out at the sea which was an amazing view. The staff were very friendly and very helpful when I left my keys in the hotel room.

I took my wife, my sister, niece and nephew here for a weekend break and the place was very nice. My wife loved the bright colours on the wall however it wasnt to my taste but hey! The rooms were clean and the showers could do with an overhaul but it functions well. The place had lots of character and... More

This hotel was very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant staff were friendly and the food was superb, the chef even made my an ice cream to order as I didnt fancy the puddings on the menu that day. The room was warm and quaint. However, during my stay i was above the restaurant so I could here the music being... More

Pleasant staff but building has seen better days. Completely eccentric decor; a riot of pink flock and gilt!! Good stay, great view. But then again, of you wanted bland you'll stay at a chain hotel . Breakfast was good and the hotel was clean.
