My partner and I decided to go to Bournemouth last minute so had trouble booking into a hotel. After going through several and looking them up on Trip Advisor we decided this had the best reviews out of what was left. We could only get a twin room which was a little disappointing as it was a romantic get away but neverthless we booked it. I would advise however anyone booking a twin room to steer clear of room 41, which is where we were!
There was plenty of parking at the hotel and check in was easy. We stayed two nights and found that the ladies on reception were both friendly and welcoming, as for the rest of the staff I cannot comment as didnt really see any of them. I cannot comment on the food as did not have it, although to get to our room we had to walk through the dining hall and to a door which led to the fire escape and there was our room. I didnt see the dining hall busy at any of the times we walked through.
The room itself was basic but clean, although it did feel that we were in a broom cupboard out the back and didnt feel part of the hotel! I think this is the room they use as a last resort! However it was quiet so no complaints about noise from traffic or other guests, in fact I think we only saw other guests when we went to the bar! The bathroom was clean but the toilet didnt flush very well.
Overall it is a basic hotel but clean and welcoming. I would recommend staying at this hotel as it is close to the beach and bars and restaurants. I'm not sure whether it is value for money as have stayed at better hotels for around the same price.
