Booked a couple of days away during the end of the week to catch up with friends that live locally and we all decided to have a drink in the hotel bar, the entertainment was a male singer with such a dry sense of humour he managed to liven up a very mature room full of people. Our room was... More

Hotel staff are very helpful and friendly, especially at breakfast and dinner, the service and attentiveness was exceptional. The hotel could do with some major refurbishment especially the lounge and the family room which is stuck in the 1970s. The décor and the furniture placed in unconventional positions and the top bunk bed safety rail was very loose and my... More

Very friendly staff and lovely room. Bathroom and furniture is painted an odd shade of salmon and cream but it was in good condition, spacious and felt clean. We didn't eat in the downstairs resturaunt as it felt like it was aimed at a slightly older or family based groups and we were a young couple so ate at the... More

Arrived early for the Air Festival, looked after our luggage and allowed us to park in the very busy car park. After checking in the room was quite modern at the back of the hotel. The rest of our family had booked a very dated room at the front with a sea view and that was very dated and tired... More

I invited friends to join me in a Corporate box for the 2015 Bournemouth Airshow. After dealing with Hana Smith to make my reservation I was confident we would have a great day. We were not disappointed, The private room on the 4th floor of the Hotel is what I would say is the best view of the flights. You... More

Lovely hotel in a prime location. It was really nice to be able to enjoy the view looking out to the ocean from the room. This is a big and busy hotel but a comfortable stay, a great nights sleep and good breakfast.

The room was small and furniture looked dated, but pretty clean; our room was facing the back so there was some noise from deliveries on Saturday morning. Also there was no WIFI reception in our room. The good points 1) friendly staff, 2) breakfast and 3) location near beach.

I was part of a group of 20 friends that booked a Corporate Box at the hotel for the final day of the airshow. Our room was on the first floor and had a large outdoor area with amazing panoramic sea views, from the Isle of Wight round to the Purbecks. The hotel's location (central between Bournemouth and Boscombe piers)... More

My Family and I (9) Booked a Table with an excellent view of the Air Show, the Buffet provided was excellent and Pimms on arrival, plus a Glass of English Wine. The Staff and Manager were attentive and nothing was too much trouble, we shall certainly book again next year.

Nice hotel in a great location just a short walk from the centre. We stayed in a penthouse room which was highly over priced, the beds were the most uncomfortable beds we have ever stayed in, along with the thin pillows that were so uncomfortable we had to go and buy some pillows the next day. Also we had no... More
