Positives: - Location great for all amenities - Staff pleasant and helpful Negatives: - We stayed in room 7. The room strangely felt damp and made all of our clothes feel damp too. It may be due to the room having a door directly to the outside, but still felt strange. - The shower dripped so we had to keep... More

Receptionist polite and helpful. that's the positives out of the way. Dated interior, guessing early 80's at best. woodchip on walls painted magnolia, white bedroomed furniture that I always wanted as a child in the late 70's with pink draylon stools.We kept our socks on as the carpet looked dodgy. An intercom on the wall Hi de hi style, obviously... More

Stayed here for one night with a group of friends on our annual cycle trip. Good rooms, very good breakfast and excellent central location. The group were very happy with the stay and the best part were the superb cycle storage containers in the front car park- the best I have seen on any tour. A highly recommended hotel if... More

We had a very friendly greeting upon arrival by a lovely receptionist. Managed to get a parking space although it was a bit tight. We knew our room would be small but it had a lovely comfy bed, plenty of storage place and a fabulous shower! The bed was made every day plus clean towels ( even though I had... More

We booked this hotel based on its proximity to the BIC. We have booked lots of hotels over the years who have said they are within walking distance of the BIC this one genuinely was. The staff were really helpful breakfast was great. The showers need some attention power on the second floor wasn't great. Free carparking and really flexible... More

For the price of the room, it was poor value for money. The room was extremely outdated, with an uncomfortable bed. The decor was in need of urgent updating, curtains were foul. The public areas uncared for and unwelcoming, we chose to cut our holiday short! To summarise, an over priced hotel in urgent need of attention and investment.

My only request is to get rid of the potato type vegetarian sausages and get Quorn sausages much more meatier texture and taste as... More

We booked this hotel for the location situated in the gardens in the centre of Bournemouth. The room was small but adequate although the ensuite would not be suitable for anyone with a disability or on large side. The 1 hour breakfast allocation does not permit a leisurely lie in. But on the plus side the food was fresh and... More
