A bit apprehensive after reading reviews saying it is dated and the pool area is not great but we were not disappointed. It is a little dated but more traditional really. Staff all lovely. Our room (203) had an extra bed (we... More

Stayed at Elstead for four nights Mid August. Hotel is just 5 minutes walk from Railway and Coach Station. However, it's a 20 minute walk to the beach, via very posh tree lined streets on the East Cliff. Heather on reception was both charming and efficient and I occupied room before due check in time - such a bonus. Room... More

The hotel is situated in a run down area of Bournemouth. Plus side it's close to the train station. The hotel itself is clean and tidy but rather old fashioned. Staff are fantastic. Really friendly and very helpful. I wouldn't be happy if I booked it for a spa weekend. I was here for a week on business. And it's... More
