Very friendly staff, and very pleasant hotel, family run, and the very opposite of the corporate behemoth which fill most of our cities.

Room clean and adequately furnished with a lovely view over the gardens... More

A family run hotel with excellant staff, the room service was spotless cleaned everyday, everyone so friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and generally a very homely atmosphere. Beautiful gardens and situated in an ideal spot with wonderful views of Bournemouth Bay with beautiful beaches.. Value for money and would definately go back
