We were a little iffy about booking here because the description said it only had a bath and we like showers, but wee needed a room in a hurry for a family funeral i had to attend and... More

Stayed with friends for New Year.Excellent value for money and it surpassed my expectations. The staff made the whole time a relaxing experience undertaking their duties with quiet efficiency. I have stayed in hotels in the centre paying more for very indifferent service. It's about a 20 min walk to the BIC and there's free parking at the hotel. The... More

We decided to give this hotel a try for the christmas period, the reviews seemed good so off we went. The hotel is obviously geared up for the older clientele which is the category we come into. I must say the staff and fellow guests were very friendly, food good, the breakfast could have been a bit hotter but very... More

From the moment we inquired about booking a room to the moment we left to come home, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. After booking, my wife had a fall which limited her mobility and Heather (the head receptionist) shuffled rooms around to ensure we had easy access to the lift as well as a larger room to easy...

Dear BazzaHUK Thank you for your splendid review and I hope you are making a speedy recovery after your fall.

Stayed here when I was in Bournemouth for work. The room itself was small but the bed was comfortable. In your price, you can avail of the facilities which include a pool, gym and sauna. The jacuzzi was cold but it was relaxing nonetheless. I stayed here to avail of the bed and it was warm and comfortable.

What a great way to see in the New Year. The staff were lovely and the food excellent. We had a band on new Year's Eve and a fantastic disco on New Year's day. It was outstanding value for money. They had plenty of single rooms with no supplement. The nearest I can get to a complaint is that the... More
