We arrived approx 11.45 friday morning to ensure we had a parking space in front of hotel,timing it for when guests had checked out.room was ready for 2.15.room 301 was huge with a very large bed,setee in the room,massive bathroom and fantastic view down to Boscombe pier and the sea.we walked regularly down through the lovely mature gardens to the seafront and a lovely half hour walk into bournemouth.we also walked the opposite way as weather was so beautiful admiring all the beach huts on the sea front.we used outdoor pool twice and the water temp was glorious.gym was small and a little shabby but even though we didnt use it the indoor pool looked very inviting.dinner in the rest was very good and we had the 2 courses fror £14.95 each.breakfast was buffet which is usual these days but food was kept hot.the only thing we found a little strange was having to go and help ourselves to tea and coffee.drinks were reasonably priced at 4.50 for glasses of prossecco,1.50 diet coke and we had some fantastic strawberry mojiitos for 7.50 each.
public rooms ie reception,bar and rest were all very modern but the grand staircase carpet was threadbare in quite a few places.what a shame!there was a real mixture of ages with lots of families as good facilities for the little ones,quiet places in the lovely gardens for the mature custs to sit and we in our later forties felt v comfortable.we would return.
