Lovely hotel. Big rooms (booked executive double) lovely and clean. Breakfast is very good but the bar food is amazing and fantastic value for money. Good location as not right near beach so nice and quiet but good bus routes into the town.

I found the room rate was very reasonable, every memberof staff was kind and caring, especially Judith, Jigger and Aga... More

We stayed Friday and Saturday night for a weekend trip to Bournemouth. The location is OK just a short walk to the sea front and town centre. The hotel has parking front and rear. From check-in through to check-out we found the staff were all very friendly and helpful. We stayed on a B&B basis and had an evening meal... More

Good indoor pool and gym facilities. Rooms (we had asked for and received adjacent rooms -a single and a double). They had all the facilities... More
