The beach being made up of all size of pebbles and dirty coloured grit, no way to make sand castles or the like, the sea very rough even when the sun was out, dodgy undertow, and very windy,...

I returned from a one week stay at this hotel last month. The location is excellent, being on the promenade at the quieter end of the seafront. It has a relatively narrow sea frontage so that many, if not all, rooms whilst having a balcony do not enjoy a good sea-view and many face a narrow side-street so, if a... More

This is a lovely friendly hotel in a stunning location right on the sea front with fantastic views of the sea and the mountains. (They have English TV in Bournemouth)! Saga don't have 'rooms'. It's what's available on arrival unless you have a special request which the hotel staff will bend over backwards to try and accommodate.....The swimming pool is... More

Saga rooms are a good size but the balconies are small, no fridge( unless through medical reasons you need one) and most have only a shower over bath and they have... More

This is a very nice Hotel and we had a lovely spacious room with good sea view and small outside swimming pool. On our visit the hotel was virtually full to capacity and that is why I want to be careful with the review. I can only put it down to the fact of the above that on a number... More

Stayed there for 3 weeks with Saga. Room was good, but satellite TV had few English speaking channels. So if in room generally good but could be slow at peak times. Hotel is really busy with Spanish Oaps at weekend. Rooms could be noisy because of the lovely atrium and sometimes didn't get done till afternoon but we'll kept overall.... More

Where to start. There are so many things that can be done well. It's unfortunate that this hotel can do any of them. Rooms. Small, cat swinging small. Still never mind if the weather is decent, something the hotel has no control over, praise be for that small mercy. When we got to the hotel someone mentioned that there had... More
