Stayed at the hotel saturday and sunday with my boyfriend and it was lovely. The staff were very friendly, the sea view room was perfect, clean and with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was a little small however, it was ideal for a little weekend getaway. The decor of the hotel is slightly old fashioned however, it does add character... More

With a perfect panoramic view of the sea from the bay window, arrival at the hotel heralded an outstanding stay in this typically English holiday resort. The light and airy room was just perfect for our requirements complemented by the bijou bathroom and shower which demonstrated just what can be achieved when an elegant seafront villa is converted into a...

Me and my boyfriend visited last month for one night and paid more for a sea view room. Bedroom size was more or less OK, with nice view, but to go in the bathroom you open a sliding door and enter in a wardrobe size room with no ventilation... Found some hair in the sheets and just waited for the... More

The staff were helpful, friendly and lovely. The hotel location is amazing, just few steps to the beach. The sea view from our room and the hotel garden was stunning. The room was very clean and the breakfast was fine. In brief, it was enjoyable experience and I highly recommend this hotel for Bournemouth visitors.

Perfect location for Bournemouth centre and sea front. We were at union conference at the BIC and it was just a short walk. My room had an unbeatable sea view and was great to wake up too. Staff were all very friendly and breakfast & dinner were fantastic.

Stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip and we had a great time. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. The choice of food is excellent and well presented. Lewis who helps run the bar will always try and accommodate your every need. Will definitely stay again.

Just spent a long weekend here and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Great family run hotel with friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and fantastic views looking out over the channel. Decor a little dated but no complaints about anything at all. Great choices for breakfast with great food. Thanks for your hospitality.

A lovely hotel, perfectly situated. The views from our room were lovely and with the windows open there was a beautiful sound of the sea. It can be a little noisy in the morning but nothing too much, just noise of people getting up and moving around the hotel etc. I am sure this depends what room you are in... More

My husband and I were able to book 2 nights here for the May bank holiday a week before. We were happy with the price considering how late we left it to book. The hotel itself is 20 minutes walk from the centre of the city. I would avoid if you aren't able to walk up hills. The staff are... More
