This hotel is very tired. The receptionist wasn't happy in her work and it showed. There is a reason why this hotel takes full payment on check in it is as no1 would pay full price on departure. We found the outside space ok the non heated pool freezing and was most dis appointed as we spent £70 on a... More

Booked this hotel on-line with a discounted £56 per person per night for a double room (paid £142 for 2 night with fees and tax). Very nice hotel. Nice outdoor pool (not heated). Interior decoration was good even though outside of hotel could have done with a lick of paint and the signage lighting was out. Had room 315 which... More

The hotel is in a good location on East Cliff with both Bournemouth town centre and Boscombe within walking distance Our room was bright and clean and overlooked the sea althought the furniture and carpets were a little worn and dated. The staff were smart... More

The receptionist was very helpful and told us that she could get us a lovely room with a view for £110 . On entering the lift we began to worry it's... More

My wife and I enjoyed a day at this hotel watching the airshow on Sunday with both my father and step mother. The Hotel was very nice and well run but my father is in a wheelchair and when it came to taking him to the bathroom I was horribly disappointed. We entered the hotel via a badly pitted concrete...

We booked the Ocean View hotel at the last minute for the four days of the Bournemouth Air Festival after another hotel in Bournemouth had badly let us down. We were delighted that we did. From start to finish all of the staff were pleasant, personable and naturally helpful. They got us a room with a view, enabled us to... More

The level of service was exemplary, the staff whilst almost exclusively of foreign extraction, were smartly presented and attentive at all times. What spoiled my stay over three days was the lack of attention to detail in the cleaning. It all has a tired look and whilst the buffet breakfast was varied enough it would disappoint those who insist on... More

Booked a disabled room, sea view, for our Anniversary for 4 nights in early August. We were a bit worried driving down about parking the car having read some of the reviews, but we needn’t had worried as upon arrival as I was looking for a vacate spot when a member of the hotel staff showed us to a reserved...

The views are amazing and the pool was cold, but clean. Breakfast was good and an issue with noisy guests keeping us awake through the night was dealt with well. The wifi is non-existant and the shower is rubbish, but these were really the only downsides.
