12 of us just stayed here on my hen weekend 21st-23rd August. Couldn't fault the hotel....our rooms were very clean, Chrissie and the other lady (sorry not sure of her name, but she made us all breakfast) was very friendly and didn't bother us & we could do as we pleased. We all had our own room key. Would defiantly... More

11 of us stayed for a stag weekend. Greated on arrival and had to pay £20 deposit for parking permit to park outside hotel. 1 of us had to leave card details for any damage or lost keys but if you don't plan on causing damage what's the problem?? Hotel was clean and tidy, good shower, fridge and kettle in... More

A nice hotel in a good location for rail station, beaches and town centre. Good road connections too. Very warm welcome to the hotel. Got given keys and explained where things are in the hotel, given a parking pass (deposit of £20) for roadside parking of which there's plenty even in the evening. The rooms were basic, but nicely arranged.... More

Thank you for your review, All carpets throughout the Hotel were cleaned about4 weeks ago. Not sure what room you were in but we are in the process of checking all the feature walls in all rooms, the rest of the walls are painted white so we can paint over when we can no longer just wipe the dirt off....

I was away this weekend and I had a manager on duty, who had an emergency and was why she was 30 minutes late to see these guys in. She had an horrendous weekend with this group. The front door was kicked in and then the Bedroom door was also kicked in, by a guy that could not hold his... More

BLUF: Cheap accommodation, well maintained, perfect for groups In organising a stag-do, I was told by numerous companies I would struggle to find accommodation in Bournemouth, epecially for two nights. Having initially been told this hotel was full, management called me back to inform I could have spaces. Despite having to change the number of people staying on numerous occasions,... More

We booked this hotel through a stag weekend website so didn't really research it. We had 9 people in 3 rooms... I'd like to add we are not rowdy lads and would like to think we are generally polite!

We had three groups this weekend. The larger group have put a review the day BEFORE you of how they enjoyed themselves and couldn't say enough of how well they were treated, and how nice the Hotel was, so I am amazed at the difference of opinions? I greeted three of you on arrival in which you told me that... More
