We booked through a national travel company offering hotel and tickets for Riverdance at Bournemouth. We did not know which hotel until about a week prior to the trip. First impression was not good with the entrance steps and surround littered with cigarette butts. Our room was ready at 3 as promised and was adequate with very comfortable beds. In... More

I must admit I was not looking forward to staying in this hotel, but it was part of a dance package. I actively explored booking into another hotel following the tripadvisor reviews and a visit last year in a truly appalling room. Luckily I didn't. My husband and I received a warm, friendly and slightly cheeky welcome from the receptionist... More

The receptionist(s), one was the duty manager, just gave us our rooms cards with no 'good evening' or 'welcome'... More
