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 The room was extremely outdated, with an uncomfortable bed.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

My daughter and 4 year old grandson stayed here for 2 nights and had a fantastic time, gardens a little bit noisy late at nights but apart from that perfect. The hotel is very well situated so walking to beach or shops is easy. Staff very friendly and always smiling . Fantastic place to stay Mick S

Our room was tiny, bathroom door opens into the bed, as a tall guy I found it quite claustrophobic. Stayed with friends who booked at the same time and paid the same price but got a room twice the size (we were room 13- avoid it). No Wifi Not much choice for breakfast, can't vary what's included and its only... More

Thank you for making my parents stay with you so enjoyable. They loved the food, breakfast and evening meal as well as the sandwiches at lunchtime. The view out over the park from the bar lounge was idyllic. Perfect location for two senior people to get out and about from for their week stay. Christchurch, Poole and Swanage all accessible!...

Stayed here just one night for a trip to the theatre, but wish it was more! We had a small double, which was indeed small and had a slightly odd shower room setup, but all perfectly adequate and comfortable and clean. The staff really couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming - it was the first time I left my... More

Thanks for this review, we are probably one of the most convenient hotels for the BIC, and we’re pleased to know that our staff were able to help with your requests. So glad you were able to enjoy time away from your baby – always so difficult the first time. More
