When we (me, my sister and my Mum who is 86 and uses a wheelchair) got there the desk told me that the room I had booked was not available. They finally found us 2 linked rooms on the... More

Room wasn't all that. Comfy bed, otherwise dirty. Dust and cobwebs everywhere. Cigarette butts all over the floor bathroom and main room. Showers hardly work. Mould all round the skirting and windows. Reception staff are rude to say the least. Couldn't give a flying monkeys about their customers. Finally, the food was horrendous. Fried eggs swimming in oil and crispy.... More

Half full of foreign student who also disliked the food. No staff to clean the tables. The place was like a building site, so many alterations needed doing it will... More

I recently spent two nights in this hotel along with my daughter and her friend and her daughter. We were in Bournemouth for the Future Cheer International competition, and booked the hotel based on the convenient distance to the beach, the 'free wifi' and the heated pool open from '7am - 10pm'. We arrived later than anticipated due to traffic... More
