We stayed here for one night only. We had to come down to Bournemouth in a hurry as my father had had a stroke and was in Bournemouth hospital, after a very stressful and upsetting visit to the hospital, we checked into the hotel and the room was horrid the wall paper was coming off the wall in one place...

Very small room with no plugs that worked. Dirty bathroom and paper thin walls. Wouldn't stay again but was ok for one night. It is old, shabby and smells like an old woman's moth balled warderobe. Dirty carpets and awful hard beds. Left before breakfast.

On the second last day of our visit me and my boyfriend walked out to our car to see it had been broken into. The window has been smashed in and they have stolen stuff of value inside the car!! Very upset with this, the manager was completely useless and couldn't do anything. Told us to just call the police,... More

Beds clean and comfortable, food self service and plenty of it. Staff helpful. It could do with general upkeep, but you get what you pay for. No evening entertainment or bingo and was farther out of Bournemouth than we expected. Quite a walk to sea front, we were part of a coach group and the coach parking was very difficult.... More

We booked this last minute as we decided to pop to Bournemouth for the evening. It was pretty much the cheapest hotel we could find so didn't expect too much, but it was bearable. The bed was uncomfortable and the room was almost clean. It's such a nice location, it's a shame they can't make more of the place.

This place is simply awful. I took my 11 year old daughter for a treat and the first room given (room 121) was disgusting, ALL the wallpaper was peeling, there was mould around the window, 2 holes in the ceiling and dirty water marks surrounding them (we were on the top floor). We were moved to another room (161) which... More

I spent three glorious nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed myself. My room was a very good size with a comfy double bed and a single bed even though I was a single occupier at the time. The bathroom was clean and bright and the shower area within the bath worked really well. I have mobility problems so the... More

This budget hotel needs updating. Our 1st room had battered furniture and broken bath panel. We asked to be moved. No problem and new room was much better but with tired furniture and decor. The hotel in general could do with a good clean - eg lampshades and skirting boards needed a good wash/dusting. Did not eat at hotel as... More
