I was looking forward to a nice break away, but the hotel is not what it seems! Do not recommend!!! Carpets are disgusting, walls are marked & mouldy, the sink was cracked, the toilet didn't flush, the water just trickled out the tap(bad plumbing, there was a kink in the pipe) my room stank of smoke as everyone smokes out...

We went in, saw and left. The walls are fullof humidity, the carpet full of stains, the beds were crammed together, there was no room for the bags. Yes, it is near the Bournemouth Pier, but nothing more. You can buy 3 hours of pool usage in the nearby Marriott for 5 pounds. That's not too bad. I am happy... More

Stayed here with a group for a stag-do, the hotel was full and it seemed to mainly be other stag and hen groups there too. The rooms were basic, single beds very close together, but comfortable enough and suitable for crashing out after an evening in the town, shower and wc facilities were fine. Decor a little tired but everything... More

Stayed here with my partner for 1 night, £40 for the room for both of us. Lovely nights sleep apart from hearing the snoring next door, walls are quiet thin. You have tea and coffee facilities in your room and a nice sized TV :) Shower really nice, would come back again, although it looks old inside its still a... More

Having read some of the reviews on trip advisor I was initially worried about my stay at the fairmount hotel, however I was pleasantly surprised, although the carpets have seen better days I found the staff to be very helpful and the room was clean. The bathroom was nice and we had TV and coffee making facility's. It was also... More

This is cheap and cheerful ... Hugely under invested in and somewhere you don't take your socks off . The room was very poor indeed and was obviously an old smokers room . The state of the carpets and general cleanliness was shocking . Still could I expect anything else for £30 a night ... A good lesson learnt

Clean, welcoming, quiet and good location. What you see is what you get at really good prices. Bar So down the road and a chip shop. My calves are meatier too now because of the hill leading to the hotel. A genuinely happy customer. Avoid Russell court hotel btw

Quite simply, it's so terrible you'll be laughing about the experience for months. Beds actually ok comfort wise but small. Otherwise rooms are so basic I wonder if it doubles as a homeless shelter. Rooms are small and dirty though bathroom was ok and shower was hot. If you're on a particularly cheap stag or hen weekend then it's the... More

If you have just arrived in a container from Africa this may seem like a good option. Everyone else - this is a last resort. It isn't a hotel it's a hostel. Have you seen the film? Locals hire out rooms for a night. The beds are comfy but exceedingly narrow, and I found bloodstains on my mattress. Food was... More
