“Nice pub but could do with a lick of paint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Very helpful staff at accommodation and nice bar. Room was okay but found a yellow stain on bed plus room was left open all day by room maid so all our stuff could have been stolen. Nice breakfast .Bed very springy

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

This has a traditional pub atmosphere with two seperate bar areas, their public bar area offers pool, darts and two flat screen televisions, showing Sky sports while their second bar is a quieter, comfortable restaurant area with an open fire place and relaxing atmosphere; it can also double up as a private function area for buffets, birthday parties and get together s. The Dean Park Inn is situated on the A347 roughly 1/2 a mile outside of Bournemouth town centre.We found that the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed one night and it was obvious that Wadsworth will need to seriously think of refurbishing the hotel. The whole place is tired looking and needs tender loving care. The rooms are small. The breakfast was suburb and the service 1st class. This hotel is very convenient for both the beach and the town centre being a short bus ride away or you can walk it in about 20mins. We would stay again.

Room Tip: Try not to get a front room as the pub is situated on a very busy crossroad.

My husband and I stayed at the Dean Park Inn for one night, we were welcome warmly by all the staff, the room was not the Ritz, but it was quiet clean and very tidy perfect place to lay your head after a party. Breakfast was first class. We would definately stay there again. Thank you Staff of Dean Park INN

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 8 and it was quiet for us.

A really great find. Having had to flee our original choice we were so happy to find this place with such a warm welcome. The room was clean and comfortable and adequate for a short stay. The food was excellent and very reasonable. We returned from an evening out and had a drink in the bar which had a lovely atmosphere yet was quiet enough to sleep over. Breakfast offered a fantastic choice, the full breakfast being huge and delicious. We were able to walk into the city in 10-15 minutes then return by taxi for £5.00 later that night. I would fully recommend this inn.

"Average" could have been "good" if only the bed had been more comfortable. A pity really because everthing else was acceptable with good staff, food and a lively bar with all of the things that you need for a pleasant stay.
Plenty of car park space and a short walk into Bouremouth centre.
I did speak to the manager about the bed and so I hope that things are now better, but I can only report on my own experience.

Room Tip: Avoid room No 12 unless there's a new mattress.
