Quite a pleasant hotel near to the beach.however,the whole hotel needs a good redecorating. It is shabby from the steps to the bedroom. Within my first half hour there, I witnessed an elderly guest demanding to speak to the duty manager in person after being fobbed off by the receptionist with a grievance for

Booked this hotel without realising it was a Brittania chain. Tired old and dirty throughout the hotel. Lift not working for the 3 days we stayed. Cash machine always broken. Windows in room just about hanging on(would hate to stay when cold). Shower had about as much umpth as an ants fart. Pool is usable but nothing special once you've... More

Was given this hotel as an alternative as we I had booked the Royal Bath but they had overbooked 4 rooms! (as told to us by booking.com). It looks like its still stuck in the 70's from the outside and this is exactly the same inside. The service from reception was poor and I was overlooked with other guest coming... More

This is a Brittania hotel which in my experience is a budget hotel chain charging reasonable prices for rooms that could do with updating. We booked this hotel as we were going with our 3.5month old daughter and we wanted to take her swimming while we were away. The room was functional but was crying out for an update, the... More

Stayed here for one night with friends, overpriced for what was essentially a large tatty cupboard. Staff didn't seem too eager to help when we pointed out they had made a mistake with our booking. We didn't dare brave the pool so cannot comment on that front. If you just wanted a place to get your head down this would... More

This hotel was brave enough to accomodate stag parties, and to be honest, managed this very well without it imposing on other guests. Staff were courteous irrespective of the dress and costume of some of the visiting clientel and provided a comfortable atmosphere. A good breakfast was also provided to nullify the effects of over exertion the night before. Good... More

On arrival told we didn't have a booking - then they found it (think it was a language barrier thing). Room was tired - although the bathroom was clean (although marks along the edge of the bath and one odd tile, where a repair had been made). Damp stains along one wall. See photo of corridor skylight! We only went... More

I visited a month ago with my partner whilst staying in Bournemouth overnight. The hotel is very nicely located (A very short walk to the beach, and about a nice 8 minute walk from town with a few nice bars just around the corner) The 4 staff members we met over our stay were all very friendly and we were...

My partner and I stayed here just for one night as we were attending a wedding and needed somewhere to stay. We didn't spend much time in the hotel, basically only came back there to sleep. Our room was a good size and from what I saw it was very clean. The decour was nothing to write home about, but... More
