“short break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Very nice hotel, lovely clean room and bathroom with lots of lovely towels. Hotel at top of a hill so not good if you struggle with walking. Cooked breakfast on the small size only one slice of bacon and one sausage.

Visited this hotel with 2 sisters for a long weekend break during the beginning of August 2014.
The rooms are spacious and clean. Excellent breakfast cooked by Michael. The hotel staff were polite and helpful. Would return.

We stayed there for a night ,first my impression is choking (very outdated carpet,decor ,facilities,tiny reception and bar ,lounge reminds me of the John Wayne Western movies).
Our family room is really poorly designed and small for three of us(a tired double bed and sofa bed for my daughter who has refused to sleep on ),it took us a while to adjust the water as it is either too hot or freezing cold and the noise inside the bathroom is annoying ). Dining room was in the basement and was another chocking surprise it can not even be qualified as basic, really need updating and crying for it. The clientele is mostly old and old gen. Please do not even think taking your partner for a romantic stay
What really puzzles me is : how the AA has rated it as a 3star hotel (the AA inspector was either drunk or made him to drink to death for him to come up with this rate )
AA you really got me on this one. This should be just a B&B no more.
I will not recommend it to anyone, please ,please stay away

A short walk takes you to the cliff top, and then 10 min easy walk to pier or a few minutes down steps to clean sandy beach, beachside cafes and restaurant. Any requests (a noise issue, housekeeping, directions, parking) and the staff provided solutions. So friendly and cheerful - a real asset. Breakfasts fine and even a little special eg scrambled egg and smoked salmon, quality natural yoghurt, nicely spiced poached apricots. A fair room for the reasonable price.

Room Tip: Room 8 had Aircon unit noise outside (for the kitchen?) but this was turned off at night

This was a reasonably priced hotel within the Best Western Group. Away from centre of Bournemouth but within walking distance albeit uphill. Few minutes walk to the cliff gave panoramic views. Rooms pleasant and quiet. Small bar. Dinners although now advertised were reasonable and as it was out of season okay. Staff were extremely kind and helpful.
