This was our first time staying at the hotel at Christmas and it was well worth it; we will visit again at this time of year. We could only stay 2 nights but we were made to feel very welcome. The food was of a high standard, especially the Christmas meal. The hotel is in an excellent position for all... More

So glad you enjoyed the Bournemouth festivities – we think Bournemouth is a fantastic place to be at this time of the year. We’re sorry the bed was a problem for you. Some of our beds are designed to be used as either 2 singles or one double, but none of them should have collapsed – we’ve passed that on... More

We booked this trip as a mini holiday for us and a treat for my husbands mum who is partially sighted, needs to use oxygen and has difficulty walking very far. The rooms were on the ground floor and next to one another just as we requested. They were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff were great and nothing... More

The staff were lovely and would always help, but i'm afraid that the hotel itself the floor boards are so creaky, the cleaners are noisy when you're trying to sleep in the morning, you can hear everybody slamming their doors at night and you can hear them talking in the corridor s night and morning , there is also building...

Thanks for your positive comments about our staff. The hotel is old and creaky, but we’re surprised that the housekeepers were noisy – they will be disappointed to hear that, they’re a professional team with very high standards. We were not aware of any major building work in the area, and if your room is too noisy, please let us... More

We booked a four day 'Turkey and Tinsel' break for the first time this year. As we were not part of an organised group we were somewhat hesitant - but we needn't have worried at all. We cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the quality of service we received. The hotel is Edwardian in style and not ultra-modern,... More

Second visit to this lovely hotel.

Bournemouth is very festive at this time of the year, and we are so lucky to have the outdoor ice-rink, the Gardens of Light and the Christmas market at the bottom of our garden. Come back and visit us in the summer when all the summer fun is happening in the Gardens. More
