Beautiful location on top of the cliff, bright externally and spotless inside. Caring, helpful staff and stunning bar and dining area. The atmosphere was quiet but relaxed and comfortable. Bedroom furnishings appeared tired but perfectly clean and carefully set up for visitor. I would be happy to re-book.

We stayed at this hotel this weekend for the third time. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food was excellent and the service was good. Excellent buffet style breakfast with plenty of choice and good quality ingredients. Panoramic sea views so a room at the back is a must. Previous reviewer mentioned creaky floorboards, they do creak but... More

Perfect decor for a girly baby shower. Sandwiches, scones and cakes were all amazing. Waiting staff could've been a little more attentive with the tea and coffees but wasn't too much of a problem. Lovely afternoon. Would return for an afternoon tea as scones were incredible!

Stayed for several nights. Ate in the hotel a couple of times in the evening. Menu quite limited but the food was good. Waiter run completely off his feet, so the service was slow..very slow. Breakfast is a self service affair. It simply does not do to arrives when the restaurant opens....because not all the hot food is ready...but when... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel extremely welcome. The staff were polite, professional and couldn't do enough for us. Our room had a sea view, and was comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast was organised and had a huge variety for all tastes. We had an afternoon tea and it... More

My wife and I had a lovely weekend stay. Friendly staff, room spacious and comfortable with great views of the sea and Bournemouth Pier. I would recommend sampling the food too. We had an excellent Sunday roast (chicken).

A very very disappointing experience. Not to be repeated. As a group of 20 friends that dine every Christmas together and thought we give this place a try. Catalogue of errors, for which no responsibility was taken or real apology was forthcoming. Table layout completely ignored with result of an couple celebrating anniversary and staying in the hotel being seating... More

Stayed for three nights in beautiful room with towels changed everyday and tea/ coffee making facilities. The windows didn't shut completely and with weekend storms an ice cold wind came blowing in. Room was lovely warm and heated though. The bed was very hard and couldn't stay longer than the 3 nights. Friday evening we wanted to try the advertised... More

Stayed here Friday/Saturday night. Stayed in Rm 29 with sea view. The room was small but cosy. The only real disappointment was that sometimes hot water came out of both the sink taps. The water came out the shower came out hot and cold. The lift was a bit rickety. Do watch the doors they shut fast. The hot towel... More
