“Comfortable and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This hotel is located almost opposite the Bournemouth International Conference Centre. Although a little dated in decor and furnishings, it is comfortable, very clean and quiet. The Breakfast was good, and the staff seemed obligingly helpful. Good base if you're involved in a conference opposite and aren't looking for swimming pools, jacuzzis, etc.

Room Tip: I had Room 115 which was very quiet - view out the back

Great location for a night out as it's so close to bars and clubs (Bar So is attached) and the breakfast was good (and ran till a suitably late 10.30 on Sunday, so if you're out late you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn) but there is obviously a fair bit of noise in the morning about as it's a famous hen do/stag do location.
He issue with the hotel is the lack of air con and windows which don't stay open- we had to shove a chair in ours to keep it open just to get some air. Thankfully when we asked reception they gave us a fan but obviously having a fan on all night is noisy. This is the one draw back to an otherwise lovely hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. It is an old hotel so does not have air con in bedroom (it was hot weather then) but the room was a reasonable size. Very conveniently situated almost opposite Bournemouth International Centre and close to beach, shops, restaurants etc. We enjoyed the breakfasts. The staff were helpful and friendly

Room Tip: We had room 207 - no air con but not too noisy (we didn't stay Friday or Saturday though)

We arrived for a three night break and found our room on third floor to be very small but the bathroom was very large and lovely. We were told that we had been put there as hotel can be noisy on Friday nights from nightclub. The duty manager,however relocated us to Room 211 on second floor which was much larger and very comfy,no noise. He offered assistance to move us which we declined. His helpfullness was noted and we very satisfied. The breakfast was fantastic and served by friendly staff. I would like to add that all staff in all areas made our break a very enjoyable one. Thanks to all concered.

Room Tip: Choose 211

Stayed here many a times with and without the children and always Superb. Great family room (206) clean, big and comfortable. Big Lcd tv, lovely bathroom and plenty of tea and coffee. Friendly and good service by all staff, free parking and great location. 1812 and Bar So on site which helps complete your stay. Good deals to be had so I read on here for one night stay breakfast and 3 course dinner so be returning shorty as its our anniversary soon. Kids at Grandparents! Thank you all once again.
