We checked in at 1pm on a Saturday, rooms were ready and we unpacked. The reception staff were a bit offhand but we were all in good spirits so it didn't matter. We took a map of the town and headed out. On our return we decided to take advantage of the hotels dinner offer of children eat free before 6.30pm, the restaurant manager was very accommodating and got us a nice table for the 7 of us. He recommened a dish for my vegetarian friend and had a little joke with the children. We did wait some time for our main course but the restaurant manager apologies and told us it would be a further 10 mins, which it was. The dining room was very busy with a coach tour! The meal was fine and afterwards the children went to play in the soft play area while we enjoyed a few drinks in the very spacious seating area.
We went down to breakfast and was greeted by the same restaurant manager who remembered there were 7 of us and found us a table together. Breakfast was great and set us up for the day.
My friends rooms was right next door to the lift and was quite noisy with a very uncorfotable bed so she asked to move, this was arranged without hesitation. She packed her bags and we went out for the day, upon our return all of their things had been moved to the new room which was in a much better location.
The rooms were clean and spacious with a large bathroom and toiletries and lots of towels, the room maids were very helpful in providing more milk and tea/coffee.
The hotel itself is very tired and worn but for what we paid you couldn't ask for more, we had a fantastic stay in Bournemouth and would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again.
