WE booked this hotel as a last resort, during a very hot spell of weather and all our usual hotels were full. We were pleasantly surprised with the staff, bar/lounge area and breakfast. the only thing was that the room was small and overfurnished meaning that you had to clamber over a chair to go from bed to bathroom.

We stayed for one night July 20th this year. Found the room to be clean and spacious. Overpriced for one night but it is the height of the season. Evening meal was basic so would prefer to go out. Staff very very pleasant. The owner a bit abrupt. The young lady who was on Monday night was a pleasure behind... More

We paid £155 for a so called family room. We were shocked at the damp dingy basement room with a 1970's bunkbed rammed in the corner. We we were offered a refund but could not find another hotel with availability (shock there)so decided to get on with it and not spend any time in the room. By morning it was... More

This hotel is nice but has a couple of issues that would not be difficult to put right. The room was clean and quite spacious , although the shower room was a bit of a squeeze . Also breakfast is served for only one hour 8.30. - 9.30. which made things a bit of a rush in the morning .... More

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
