we had booked 2 x twin rooms and 1 x single room for 2 nights and 1 double room for saturday night 11 months previously but on arrival (28/08/2014) as we booked in the 2 staff behind the desk who kept talking to themselves in an Indian language so that we were unable to understand them, which I think was...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights for around £220. The people there were very helpful and friendly, the food prices were reasonable (and from what we had, delicious), and our room was wonderful with no serious faults in it. It's also awesome how close it is to the beach. The only minor (probably even petty) thing that... More

Don't really know where to start on this hotel. We were met on arrival and told to sit in the bar until we could be dealt with. When the paper work arrived we were told sign here here and here and there is a £5.00 parking charge if you want to leave your car in the car park. Hmmm £100... More

Wasn't expecting much after reading the reviews but still booked a family room. A lovely stay at and very close to the beach. Staff were friendly and management was very accommodating. Room was adequate for a family room. We all felt that we were looked after very well. Breakfast was good. We had dinner in the restaurant and were very... More

Located a short walk from the main beach and pier it was a very handy location. The staff upon arrival were great. I had booked through a hotels.com, no issues and everything was very easy. Parking did cost £10 for the weekend but that was a fraction of what it costs elsewhere in Bournemouth to park that close to the... More

So, as most of the reviews for this place are pretty negative we really weren't expecting too much but were somehow still disappointed! We arrived just after 6pm on a Saturday evening to find only one very narrow parking space left which we just about managed to squeeze our average sized car in to. We then paid the £5 for... More

My daughter and I stayed for 1 night. I had read the reviews so knew it was going to be a palace. It's easy to find and a great position for the pier and the shops. It would be less busy is it was not where it was. We had to pay a fiver to park which was ok. The... More

I concurr with the other remarks. You won't get what you paid for even if they have the room you paid for available - they even have the nerve to try and charge you more for what you paid for on the day. The owner/manager should be ashamed of how this place is run. Kamal on reception is especially rude... More

My husband and i first came here at the end of September 2013 as a spontaneous last minute plan to stay in Bournemouth after a night out inatead of driving home. We didn't want much, just a place to crash and get ready. I booked last minute on booking.com. The hotel reception is pretty old skool and everything appears to... More
