The hotel is located 5 mins walk from the pier and about 5-15 from a vast selection of restaurants and bars. It is on a hill and its quite a steep walk back up from the beach.
The hotel itself provides free parking, a definite plus for Bournemouth, and free wifi. It is clean, bright and airy with large, if sparsely, furnished rooms. The bathroom is a wet room design so can be a bit soggy underfoot. The room has a good aircon that is quiet enough that it can be left on overnight.
Breakfast is very good with a decent range of hot and cold food on the self serve buffet. The buffet is topped up regularly so no overdone eggs or cardboard bacon. We decided to eat in the restaurant on one night and the quality of the meal greatly exceeded our expectations much better than some of the more well known chains.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
Over all great value for money and we will definitely return on our next visit.
