Another fantastic new years party arranged and expertly executed by our hosts. The company was fantastic, the food excellent and the drinks very reasonably priced. The entertainment was as ever appropriate for the year end celebration with a gala dinner and a glass of bubbly at midnight. Afternoon tea and cakes is a quaint but very pleasing touch to a... More

The food, friendly service and attention to detail could not be faulted. A choice of two comfortable lounges in which to relax after a brisk walk along the seafront. I would recommend this hotel without reservation.

I have yet to find a friendlier, nicer, more relaxing place to stay. I joined friends here for a New Year break. The food was excellent. The entertainment may not be to everyone's liking but the atmosphere was great and fun. Drinks very reasonably priced. A major bonus is the fantastic location. The hotel overlooks the gardens and is minutes... More

Thank you for your balanced review. We are pleased that the service and the food met with your approval. We have listened to your comments and are investigating the issues you raised. The good news is new carpets have already been ordered for some of the public areas. The front door issue is a tricky one, and keys can be... More

This hotel has its own car park and is easily accessible. The central location is perfect for the BIC, Light Garden and Ice Rink. The room we had was small but clean and perfectly adequate for all the needs of any traveller. The food was well prepared and plentiful. As the hotel advertises, it specialises in groups, in particular, bowling... More

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

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 are sorry you found the room too noisy; please let us know in future and we will move you if possible.... More
