“Excellent Hotel, trek from the car park though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Family and I stayed here for a couple of nights recently. The rooms are very clean and so large the 32 inch TV seemed small from the bed !!

We also had a room with a balcony on the 4th floor with a beautiful view of the pier and beach.

Breakfast was excellent - we have 3 under 16s that ate for free with us paying the GBP8.25 for an adult - GBP16.50 for all of us to eat as much as we wanted including tea/ coffee and fruit juice !!

Staff were also excellent.

Only let down for me was the trek from the car park down steps with suitcases. Otherwise would have been 5 stars.

Room Tip: Higher floors and on the front for a balcony and view of the sea/ pier

We always stay at this Premier Inn as it is so central to the Bournemouth shopping area and the beach and restaurants. Although you have to pay for the car parking (albeit subsidised,) its easy to leave the car although it is a bit of a trek through to reception. We always manage to get a 'balcony' room and it is always extremely spacious and clean and we have eaten in the Restaurant at night and it was as good as any of the other restaurants serving the same sort of food. Sometimes it gets very busy when booking in but the Receptionists are usually very helpful. It is a great hotel particularly for a short break.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are very spacious and give a wonderful view of the sea.

just got back from a hen weekend in Bournemouth and 6 of us stayed here and we loved it! rooms were spacious, great views, staff friendly and happy to help breakfast was delicious and buffet was replenished frequently!

Having stayed in other hotels in Bournemouth and seen the other hotel that the rest of the hens were staying in I would without a doubt come straight back to this hotel! great value, great hotel!

We are never disappointed in the rooms at a premier inn, this was no exception. We had a great comfortable clean room with a sea view.

However the breakfast was average, mushrooms watery, sausages were over seasoned for my taste.

What was worse however was the bathroom smell throughout the whole of the reception.

Would return in the hope that the smell has been sorted.

Very central location with a nice setting of a bar and restaurant. Quite unusual furbishments. Our room was on the top floor with a roof terrace and a view over all of Bournemouth and the beach.
The interior was modern and a spectacular bathroom. All was well equipped and the staff pleasant. The hotel restaurant can get quite busy. It is a very pleasant Premier Inn in a good location. Would recommend it!

Overall the hotel was great, enjoyed a 2 night break for 2 adults & 2 children. Our room had a balcony, excellent views of the seafront. The room was spacious (not the normal corporate decor/size - retained previous owners look/feel), even though we had 2 extra beds, clean and comfortable. Cleanliness was very good. One of the spare beds had a broken leg and this was resolved very quickly. Staff were very friendly throughout, service was excellent. Parking had to be paid for, thought it was a little expensive even after the discount. There was a very bad smell in the lobby, was being dealt with we were told. Breakfast was good, with a great choice but a little expensive. I would definately recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Family room had balcony

Have never been disappointed in a Premier Inn. Cleanliness counts tons with me - and this Inn is great. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant has an exceptionally varied menu and steaks are cooked to perfection - the wine list is good too and the prices are very reasonable. The "meal deal" is worth every penny - £22 for 3 courses - each course has 4 selections from which to choose PLUS full English breakfast is given for the following day FREE (Only with the "Meal Deal" - wow!! What value!!). This hotel is opposite the Pavilion Theatre which has all the BIG names performing. I had not been to Bournemouth before - but I will be returning as it is a great resort. The Gardens opposite are beautiful and have a woodland part (complete with ducks!) meandering though the gardens. This Premier Inn is in a very desirable location. It would be ideal for solo travellers, groups and family. I'll be back there soon!!!
