“Go April”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

No, not the time of year but the very helpful and cheerful receptionist. In truth all of the staff were great, but April was memorable. The hotel itself was perfectly located, just a few minutes walk from the beach, with restaurants such as Wagamama, Prezzo and Chimichanga literally a few steps from the front door. The decor was fantastic. You really can't do much better than this in Bournemouth

This hotel makes great efforts to make life easy for those who are unable to walk. There is a lift into the hotel from street level, a lift to the Manhattan Bar and most important of all a "roll in shower" in the bathroom. Why is it that there is always a shower over the bath - ludicrous! There is always room for improvement but this is one of the most thought about layouts for the disabled that we have come across - great!

Having read all the reviews, it seemed that a sea view was imperative. So I requested one not long after booking.
It didn't start well. We were directed to the muliti storey car park behind the hotel. It was chaos and there with no chance of getting a space. Luckily we found a space in the Pavilion car park opposite the hotel. £12 for 24 hours. Then our room had to be one of the smallest in any Premier Inn with a rotten view over a roof. As we were in Bournemouth for the first time, seeing Hall and Oates at BIC- a birthday treat for my husband- I was rather disappointed. So I did something I had never done before- complained about the room. Wow that worked. In no time at all we had a room on the 9th floor with a small balcony and a fantastic view over the beach and pier. Not only that but we had a sitting room area and a walk in double shower! With breakfast the total cost was £79. Add to this friendly, helpful staff , a five minute walk to BIC and in the opposite direction the Russell -Coates Gallery and we really could not have had a better hotel.
The stay nearly ended on a sour note when we discovered a parking ticket on the car. The voice recognition systen I called from mobile had "heard" the wrong registration number. I did change it when I noticed the error on checking the text but in that short time the ticket had been issued. Again a quick phone call solved the problem and the fine was cancelled.

Expected a budget hotel but got so much more. Good decor, helpful staff and quality breakfast, all on top of a great night's sleep and location perfect for enjoying Bournemouth's nightlife. Only downside was slight mould in top right corner of shower and TV which was parallel to bed so we had to look sideways to watch it! A bit strange but overall didn't detract from a great hotel experience.

I have been using this hotel for long time. Fair price for a good location. Happy hour buy 1 get 1 free is good. Some rooms has super ocean view seeing the pier, fantastic. Internet connection outside of the room is disaster. Furniture in room a bit worn out but overall very clean.

Stayed at this hotel last weekend (10/7/14 - 14/7/14), and had a great time. Room was lovely, staff were very efficient and friendly (especially Avril (hope I'm remembering correctly) on the front desk). We have already booked again for next visit.

Only gripe I have and its not with the hotel staff etc is the cost. At £494 for a 4 night stay this is definitely not a budget hotel, and I have booked again, as I have mentioned, purely because of the location.

I recently went here with my girlfriend for a few nights. The hotel is really clean, bathroom and room very clean as well. And not just basic, nice design, nothing too flashy, but it didn't feel like a budget hotel. Only not a 5 as my window didn't shut properly, so it wasn't perfect.

On the whole, the hotel had everything we needed as well as polite staff who could speak multiple languages. Very impressed.

Room Tip: Just ask for a sea facing room
