Our room was king size deluxe and it was very clean and tidy, staff are cheerful and polite, the building work didnt bother us at all, and the breakfast buffet is lovely...... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and although I was delighted to hear that you enjoyed so many aspects of your stay it seemed to be slightly spoilt by some inconsiderate neighbours? Because of the time your husband complained the Receptionist would have had to wait for the Night Porter to be present downstairs so she... More

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights in a deluxe superior room. Not sure what the difference would've been between standard and superior. Especially seeing as the beds felt like 2 separates pushed together. Duvet was open at the end and didn't feel like much effort had gone into bed making. House keeping weren't discreet. Bathroom towels were tiny... More

Stayed in this hotel for the Bournemouth Airshow. Wasn't sure what to expect, but on arrival and all through our stay the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable. Even though there are major refurbishments going on in the hotel it didn't spoil our stay. The breakfasts are really good with plenty of choice. Fresh... More

Make sure that you stop in one of the re furbished rooms, the photos are a little misleading as a new Contempary Hotel. I stopped in an old room which was very tired and frankly very tatty. Also workman outside were very noisy shouting to each other in some foreign tongue. Staff very pleasant and helpful

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your patience during our refurbishment. As we still have 10 rooms to refurbish we have tried to make it as clear as possible on the booking sites by differentiating between standard rooms and deluxe rooms and the price is also reflected because we are aware the standard rooms...

A quick visit to Bournemouth, so only stayed one night. A lovely hotel with very friendly staff, a very nice twin room and a great breakfast to start the day, so what else do you need. Would recommend and will use again in the future.
