This hotel was built at the turn of the century, so please don't complain about it needing a re vamp. That is an insult. Some one said it needed freshening up, it is like many hotels it takes a bit of time and effort to keep up. Who ever you are you will be glad to know that they are... More

As usual the bed was comfortable the room was clean, the staff were very good and the breakfast was excellent but the en suite was the smallest I have ever seen - hats off to the plumber that managed to fit a bathroom into such a small space.

Stayed here for two nights in January and was very disapponted. A hotel in desperate need of improvement. Tatty in every area and aside from location little to enjoy. Staff try hard but look as weary as the building itself. Having used an excellent Best Western in Bournemouth I booked expecting the same standard here. Sadly, as different as chalk... More
