We have just returned from a two night stay, Friday and Saturday night, and whilst the hotel was nice, and provided a great location, I would not chose to stay there again. We pre-warned the hotel we would be arriving late, as we were travelling some distance, and that was fine. I wish they had pre-warned us that they have... More

The hotel is well positioned (about 5 mins for beach or town) and was good value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially the waitresses in the restaurant. Our room, although not the biggest we have stayed in, had all we needed and was clean and quiet. The only down side was the half board menu offered... More

Really enjoyed our two night stay, with evening meal on first night. We were in room 101, noise was only an issue if the window was open. We stayed Monday and Tuesday, definately wouldn't want to be there at the weekend. I can imagine the bar/nightclub would be quite noisy Nice size room, with a massive bathroom. Pillows were rubbish... More

We arrived at about 1030 am, which we knew was before the check-in time. However, the staff were shocked we had arrived before 3 pm exactly, and did not seem able to cope with the situation. There was not a secure luggage storage area available, and the staff were not particularly nice when we requested it be stored in the... More

I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Excellent position to start with. However more importantly the hotel is spotless, the staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. I sadly was ill on one of the nights, and asked at reception if it was possible for a couple of slices of toast in our room, no problem... More

We stayed here for just one night in July, and were impressed all round with the hotel. I would give it a 5 star but on the basis of just one night it's hard to do that as we weren't there long enough and didn't use all the facilities. The receptionists were pleasant and professional; the room was really nice,... More

Excellent hotel , brilliant club next door and in hotel it's self . Friendly staff and breakfast was just what you need after a few cocktails night before . All site seeing attractions were near to hotel and beach was a stones throw away. Already thinking about Xmas time again .

Myself and my boyfried stayed here for just 1 night mid week in August. We arrived at the hotel around 3pm (parked in their free car park at the hotel which is fab) had a lovely welcome and went up to our room. We had only booked a standard double room (which included breakfast) and that was absolutley perfect for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as we were going to watch lee Evans, hotel itself is a bit dated but still very nice. Reception were very helpful with any questions and you can charge your food and drink in next door bar to the room. Reason I have given a low rating is as we were only there for two... More

Stayed for a week while on a trip with a soccer/football team. Older hotel with a very good breakfast and clean well maintained rooms. Location was fantastic as you can get to everything in Bournemouth while being out of the middle of the night life. Not a modern place but well kept and a definite place to visit should I... More
