Room was large and very clean. En-suite was small and a little old fashion but it was clean and very useable. Food was fantastic. Hot and... More

We had a marvellous eight nights, lovely room with two lovely armchairs. Attentive staff and beautiful sea views. A few problems with parking.but ably sorted out by John. Food lovely and plentiful. Bathroom could do with a little updating.

A lovely, clean hotel in a pleasant location - just far enough out of town to avoid the noise and bustle of a holiday resort but close enough to give good access to it, and a very pleasant walk there along either the cliff top or promenade path. A very good breakfast, served quickly and with that increasing rare British... More

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.
