Where to start well we were greeted by the daughter of the owners and asked to wait in what can only be described as a cold, cramed and uninviting reception area little did I know this was the common trend for our 2 day stay. On being shown our room it felt quite cold so I preceded to attempt to... More

We haven't been back for a few years but the facilities are much improved. Wonderful welcome from the very good hosts and family. Made to feel very welcome. Spotlessly clean, very quiet and the food is superb!. Such a wonderful 'tuck away' behind the main road but only a few minutes walk to lovely beaches and a stroll into Bournemouth.... More

Very warm welcome at this family run setting, tucked in neatly behind the big corporate hotels on the main cliff top road. As a consequence, it's positioned in a quiet, peaceful and a semi residential road not subject to the litter and general detritus that unfortunately seems to mark every main thoroughfare in what used to be an immaculate seaside...

The hotel is very well situated in a quiet road just back from the sea front. An easy walk to the centre of Bournemouth and all the attractions. The exterior is a little 'weathered' and the lounge/dining room in need of a little tlc. The bedrooms and bathrooms look newly decorated so I'm sure work is ongoing. Period features with... More

Thankyou for taking the time to leave us a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The exterior has now been repainted and so no longer looks weathered.In fact, when the sun shines it is very bright indeed.

When you arrive the hotel looks like it could do with some attention to the exterior but don't let that put you off - the owners have clearly been focussing on the interior and have done a good job of updating what must be a difficult hotel to work on with all its character. We had a warm welcome from... More

Thanks for your review and constructive comments. Hopefully, now we have given some attention to the exterior and had it all painted, it will look even more welcoming. But as you rightly said, we had concentrated on the inside first. We have taken note of your 'storage in the bathroom' comment and will see what we can do there. You... More

Very surprised by the looks from outside, then the massive welcome from the lovely owners. Comfortable family room well placed to the beach, local shops and restaurants. We were made to feel special with conversation and kindness. Great breakfast!!

This hotel is in a lovely quiet road but only 5 mins away from the beach, we had a very large room which was clean comfy and a large screen tv, the flats opposite had flood lights on all night but thankfully the curtains were very heavy and didn't let any light through, the bathroom was large with a roll...

Bournemouth is fast becoming overcrowded with Stag parties and hen nights so this little hotel away from the madding crowds is a quaint little number!
