I spent four nights at the Hotel. The room was clean and tidy with en suite facilities. I had a pleasant sleep and a lovely breakfast each morning and had a relaxing time on the beach and doing leisurely things you usually do on a holiday. The staff are very helpful and do a great job. What a lovely find... More

The shower was freezing throughout the stay, though we did hear that the room above ours was on the other hand scorching and was not usable. We had to seek out family in order to have a shower....

A group of 9 ladies staying at the safari bistro for 1 night. A bit of a god send as many places researched for stays in Bournemouth only offered 2 nights stays as a minimum. Didn't expect much for price paid. Plus points: car parking on site, friendly staff, nice patio/garden area for summer drinks, nice dining area/ breakfast &... More

The carpet was worn through, the shower was filthy and not just recent mould, there was a long term general mould build up. There was a sign saying do not open window, which... More

The owners couldnt have been any more accommodating for our hen do party of 10 girls. Really friendly and... More
