I was a bit reluctant booking a hotel for over £100 in Bournemouth because there are so many to choose from you don't really want to pay London prices. However, when you look at what we got for the price it was actually very good.
We had free access to the spa which we used on the Saturday afternoon for a good few hours. It's only quite small and there were quite a few people in there, but it didn't stop us enjoying relaxing for a few hours in the pool and various rooms. The spa staff were very friendly and helpful. There is also a bigger swimming pool and gym which we didn't use on this occasion.
The room was very clean, reasonably modern and had a decent bathroom. There was free wifi in the room which was very fast (better than most hotels I've stayed in!) and all the little extras like biscuits and toiletries provided. We were on the first floor and didn't hear a sound from other residents.
There was a little bit of a queue when checking out on the Sunday, but we were seen quickly and efficiently. They had a free phone in reception to book a taxi which came within a couple of minutes.
Overall I'd say if you have chance to use the facilities this is really good value for money, if you just want somewhere to land at the end of a night out you can probably find a decent 3* a bit cheaper nearby.
Location wise I can't really comment because we were visiting friends so didn't need to go into Bournemouth itself, however we walked home along a main road that led to this hotel quite late at night and felt safe. I think it's quite near the beach and not too far from the town too.
