Been staying here every July for 3 years,would have returned again but unfortunately prices have increased too much so won't be staying this year, nice Place, good service but beds uncomfortable. Nice breakfast although only ever used it on the last day of stay as we were always out very early in the morning

We are disappointed to hear that we won't be seeing you again this year. I'm sorry you think our prices are now too high, I am surprised because we haven't really increased prices very much for the past 4 years. Our rating of 4.5/5 for value on Trip Advisor suggests that for most guests we are getting the price right,... More

Ideally situated for the BIC, very reasonably priced and felt that we got great value. Liked the modern cafe style dining room and thoroughly enjoyed the Full English breakfast. ..would definitely use again.

This is a great place, ideal if you are in Bournemouth to watch a show. It has parking facilities and the place is spotless. The hosts give great advice and very welcoming. The breakfast in the morning cannot be faulted. Thank you for another great stay.
