Just returned from our annual weekend here, we had a sea view room (which cost's extra) on the second floor, from which the view is partly obscured by some very large trees, you only get a side sea view looking towards the west beach, and over Russell Coates Museum which is opposite the hotel.
The room itself is quite comfortable with a 26in flat screen tv, free safe, iron & board, large bed,etc etc, a fully tiled bathroom but not much shelf space, but we found the room a little on the cold side, which did not trouble us to much, but others may find it too cold, as other reviews have already mentioned, there is a large car park to the rear of the hotel some of which is under cover,
Now for the meals, breakfast is of buffet style with everything is available tea,coffee,toast, cereals,eggs,bacon, etc etc,
Now for the evening meals you get a choice of three main dishes, but the downfall here is that the vegetables are limited to one dish between THREE people, ( we don't know if this is common practice) but you find that there is only FIVE very small roast potatoes, so this means that two people can have TWO and one is left with ONE, I now supect that the management is now going to reply to this and say that we shoiuld have asked for more, but where are the brains of the staff to let this happen in the first place?
The hotel is a short walk downhill to all of the attractions that Bournemouth has to offer, we found the reception,restaurant, and bar staff all very helpful
Would we return the answer to this is yes
