Plenty of food served at breakfast and dinner. Good restaurant service. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good easy walk down into town but a stiff walk back. I had just had a replacement knee so I used the hill to build up my muscles. Good Wi-Fi in the lounge. The sun shone into the lounge in the morning.I was on... More

We visited because they were running a murder mystery weekend so this may turn into a duel review. The first thing that is noticeable is that the building itself is old so it is quite quirky both inside and out. So one of the charms is the creaky stairs and floorboards and the old fashioned lift. Having said that the... More

Me & my partner booked this hotel last minute as we were in Bournemouth for the day & wasn't planning on staying over night. It was on £16pp, so we didn't expect much, but we only wanted somewhere to sleep for the night. It was better then expected, the welcome was friendly & the room was pretty standard. Had a... More

Many thanks for your interesting review. We do remember you from your picture. Obviously wanting to pay such a low price meant you were not going to get one of our superior rooms, and shortly after checking in you went out for the night. It seems that the taxi driver wouldn't even take £10 for you fare from just down... More

I would highly recomend this hotel to any family looking for accommodation in Bournemouth. Me and my 3 year old daughter had booked in for 1 night on Thursday but loved it so much stayed an extra night too. Lovely clean hotel, lovely area close to the beach so ideal for families carrying buckets and spades to the beach !!... More

Stayed in this hotel for a weekend break. On the hotel details it states amble parking but there was a shortage & the spaces were very narrow - couldn't hardly get out of my car easily. Checked in to a double room and had to repay as the payment I made online did not count ! Room was a double... More

I just got back from a wonderful 5 day group trip to Bournemouth. The hotel was really great. Having a bad back problem I asked the manager for a room with a bath and got one without any problems. This was the second time I stayed there but this time I spent more time "indoors". All the staff was so... More
