This hotel is located almost opposite the Bournemouth International Conference Centre. Although a little dated in decor and furnishings, it is comfortable, very clean and quiet. The Breakfast was good, and the staff seemed obligingly helpful. Good base if you're involved in a conference opposite and aren't looking for swimming pools, jacuzzis, etc.

Great location for a night out as it's so close to bars and clubs (Bar So is attached) and the breakfast was good (and ran till a suitably late 10.30 on Sunday, so if you're out late you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn) but there is obviously a fair bit of noise in the morning... More

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. It is an old hotel so does not have air con in bedroom (it was hot weather then) but the room was a reasonable size. Very conveniently situated almost opposite Bournemouth International Centre and close to beach, shops, restaurants etc. We enjoyed the breakfasts. The staff were helpful and friendly

We arrived for a three night break and found our room on third floor to be very small but the bathroom was very large and lovely. We were told that we had been put there as hotel can be noisy on Friday nights from nightclub. The duty manager,however relocated us to Room 211 on second floor which was much larger... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during the Whitsun week. What a lovely break we had. The hotel is in the perfect location just 200 yards from the beach and opposite the BIC, we were on the 2nd floor and the room was fantastic, spotlessly clean with a superb shower in the en-suite.

Booked a 2 night midweek break during Easter school holiday through Travelzoo. Great value at £35 per person per night, incl full breakfast and fixed menu 3 course dinner. Very good location, opposite BIC, 5 minutes walk from pier/beach, lower gardens and town centre. Tricky entrance to car park, immediately by hotel front door and off a quite busy roundabout.... More
