We booked at short notice with lots of special needs and the staff were very helpful and friendly on the phone sorting us out - great to speak to real people not agencies who don't know the place. There was no fuss about the children being messy and disorganised and when things were not right they were fixed immediately. Everything... More

Just spent 2 weeks at this lovely friendly hotel. My daughter and I had a superior twin room which was spacious and had a fridge and ceiling fan - just the thing to cope with the hot weather. From the management down the staff are all very helpful and always there to help if needed. Meals were well presented and... More

After getting a great deal for a 4 day break, we weren't expecting too much, but the hotel is fantastic! Literally 3 minutes away from Bournemouth station and a very easy 15 min walk to the town centre and beach, which was beautiful! The staff were incredibly friendly and the bar and restaurant were brilliant! The bar is cheaper to... More

Used booking.com to book the hotel - which was very easy. %20 VAT is a big surprise, adds a 3 day-2 night stay to £ 300. Added a note "clean, quiet room" to my booking, and this was made true. The location is not that close to beach and city centre. The maps do not show the distance right. You... More

Pretty good value. It's about a 5 minute walk from the station. Taxi to the pier costs £6.80. It has a lounge bar, a restaurant and a few other rooms which looked like function rooms. It also has a gym, a swimming pool with jacuzzi. The decor was a bit 1980s, however, and needs some work. Staff were friendly.

Booked on a whim at a reasonable price last minute. Reasonable room and good food. Spoilt somewhat by a very hot towel rail - I still have a burn mark 4 days later. A lot of noise from a generator or air con outside my room window. Ceiling fan was excellent.

I had a really enjoyable stay last weekend at the Elstead. The staff made us feel very welcome and we were treated as special guests. They were always on hand to help and would actually take the time to ask what we had planned during our stay and when we returned they would ask us how it went. The room... More

Was nice enough for one night but room quite small and ceiling fan no where near the bed so pretty pointless on a hot stuffy night. Also got woken up early by knocking on the door to see if we had left so they could clean the room. Booked through last minute.com as a secret hotel but now regret it... More
