This hotel is a complete joke. We were not given the room that we paid for. Staff were rude and unhelpful. The hotel is badly managed, the place is chaotic. There was no hot water. The hotel felt unsafe. The rooms are dirty and unclean. Drinks are watered down. You have to pay for parking and wifi. Avoid!

Upon arrival, we were asked to pay £5 to park in the hotel car park. Nobody showed us to our room, which was barely large enough to swing a cat. The decor is hugely dated and the facilities basic; the bed had definitely seen better days too. Breakfast was an extra £11.95 so we opted for the Wetherspoons down the... More

A lovely stay in Bournemouth. The weather was not the best but the hotel was nice and clean. The breakfast was very good. I did not stay in the evening for a meal as I met some friend so cannot comment on the restaurant.

The mattress was very uncomfortable. The room was extremely hot (top floor room on a hot weekend in July). There was no fan or any movement of air even with the windows open. The front of the hotel is very noisy and it was hard to sleep. Whilst the bathroom was clean, the shower was very weak. The breakfast was... More

I chose this hotel as it is advertised disable friendly, but I had the following issues with this establishment. Lift to small to fit wheelchair, which had to be left in lobby and room would also not fit wheelchair.

We were 3 men on a night out, and chose this hotel for the location, after paying nearly £300 for the one room for a night we thought this would be a great hotel, and thought we would have a pucker room, how wrong we were, we were totally ripped off, the room was dirty, the bathroom was mouldy and...

We stayed here for two days as a party of 18 on a stag weekend. We have to say the Hotel Staff were very friendly and they accomodated everything we needed and supplied good food and had the bar open whenever we needed it! They even opened up the main function room for us to watch the 100" TV Screen... More

We have just checked out today having stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. After booking without reading any reviews initially, then reading the reviews, post booking we nearly had a panic attack and started to look for alternative places to stay, such were some of the terrible reviews! We are not prudes, a couple in our fifties, realistic enough... More

We are currently staying at this hotel, and have no complaints. It is basic but it was a very reasonable room rate. The staff have all been exceptionally polite. Havent used the restaurant orhad breakfast here, so cant comment on that. Location wise is excellent. We have been lucky with parking so far and have always found a space when... More
