Went here for breakfast recently and was really pleased we did. The menu was a little limited, but very reasonably priced. The food was good, tasty, hot and arrived without too much delay. Nice décor and relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend a visit.

This was our 5th visit. We like it so much we came for Christmas 2014 and were not disappointed. We have a superb time every visit. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly which belies a hard working team who provide a polished, professional service whilst making you feel relaxed and more like a friend than a customer. The decor... More

Surprisingly unique hotel offering more than your standard service. From the moment I called to make the booking I knew we were going to be looked after and be able to switch off. The bedrooms are brilliantly well thought out with gorgeous amenities, great beds, amazing service - nothings too much trouble (breakfast till 1130am!), and, a fab restaurant serving... More

Nothing to fault at all. Didn't stay in the hotel but went several times for drinks and once for a meal. The atmosphere is lovely - this is the best place in Boscombe (OK, not difficult I suppose...). The staff are very efficient and polite and you can't help but have a good time in there. Very good food -... More

I can be a demanding visitor to any establishment and I am happy to complain and let then know if there is anything wrong but nope, nothing wrong here! The laid back ethos is clearly reflected through-out the hotel but with-out it being detrimental to the standards. From arranging the booking to checking out the staff were very friendly and...

The write up seemed too good to be true for this hotel. However, I can honestly say it lived up to its description. All hotel staff were young, friendly and committed to making sure our stay was a happy one. We ate in the restaurant and the food was lovely. The full English breakfast was one of the nicest I've...

Tremendous. We are four friends, each of us think we're younger than we are really! We ate here on Friday night last week. Great fun. Service excellent. Food good. Wine good value. Music perhaps a bit noisy for anyone not young at heart.

We stayed here for two nights as part of my best friends wedding. The hotel is perfectly located away from the hustle and bustle of town but close enough to walk to the beach in 5 minutes and into Bournemouth in around 20-30minutes. Our room was wonderful - well appointed with high quality furniture and luxury toiletries. The shower was... More

I was treated to a lovely weekend away in Bournemouth. My boyfriend surprised me and I couldn't have been more satisfied with his choice, the boutique hotel is cool, trendy and has a really laid back feel. We were welcomed by Mark who was extremely helpful and friendly towards us. Our room was amazing, clean, had fab interior and bed... More

We stayed for one night. 3 business travellers in 3 rooms who couldn't book the normal corporate type hotels that we would normally stay in. We found a little gem to be honest. Not in the nicest area of town but on walking into the hotel and through the decking area we knew we were in a well kept and... More
