Even though the hotel is currently undergoing refurbishment, it was still lovely. The staff were very friendly & helpful, the room we had was small but enough for our needs & the breakfast, cooked to order, was delicious. Situated about 10 minutes walk from the seafront, it is perfectly located and once completed, will be perfect for a stay in... More

Never heard of this hotel before but was impressed with what it was offering. Was unsure when I arrived and saw scaffolding outside and even worse when there was work going on inside. I didn't need to worry. Yes they were working inside but if my room was anything to go by then it will be worth it. The room... More

The Receptionist was charming and warned us that there was a Dinner dance finishing at midnight. We were not fazed as we were booked out for the evening anyway (try Thai Koh Tapas but book early!) We had Room... More

The Hotel is ideally located on the East Cliff of Bournemouth, only a short walk into the town centre. The staff were lovely and helpful. Especially Robert on the bar who kept us supplied. The decor of the bar and the breakfast hall is lovely. The breakfast food is great value and a good selection. The garden is very chill... More
