This hotel was a short walk from the train & bus station, and an easy walk into the town. The hotel was comfortable and the price we paid was a bargain. The room was comfortable and clean. Could have done with larger towels and more pillows. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of it. Did not eat dinner, menu... More

I booked this hotel as it is near to the O2 Academy. The first room we were allocated was so tired and shabby, the paper was peeling off the wall, the carpet was threadbare and the personal toiletries had clearly been used already! My husband asked if there was any chance of changing rooms as in his words it was... More

They are dog friendly (as it was firework night I asked on arrival if they had a quiet room facing inwards and they changed me immediately with no fuss. They... More

I had honestly thought Fawlty Towers was played out in Torquay but it was here in Bournemouth. It all started at check-in when the receptionist demanded full payment for the weekend in advance which as a regular traveller I had not come across this before. I raised an objection but told this was hotel policy! We were allocated room 259... More
