We stayed here last night when we made a surprise (and long overdue) overnight visit to see our daughter who is at uni in Bournemouth.
We got the last room available and I was impressed with the price but a little worried as my previous forays into trying to book hotels in Bournemouth generally ended with them being too expensive for an overnight stay.
When we got there there was a little confusion (which never fully got understood or resolved) with the receptionist - who was very nice. She couldn't quite grasp that we were staying in a double and our youngest was going to occupy the spare bed in a friends (who was already there) room and that our oldest lived elsewhere in Bournemouth and was visiting.
That all aside all the staff were very nice and hospitable.
The room (room 10) was big and clean. Perhaps a little tired to what we are used to but certainly more than good value for the money. The flat screen tv's that are boasted in the rooms are computer monitor size - so for the visually challenged may be a chore - but other than that we couldn't find anything to complain about. Not that we were looking!
I had a more than reasonable night's sleep - which is something for me in hotels - as the bed was very comfortable.
We had Sunday lunch there before coming home and I really must say that for the price it was extremely good value and quality. The restaurant was packed but the service was fast without being too rushed and the food excellent.
We'll definitely stay there agin.
