We stayed in the ground floor pier family suite which was lovely and spacious . Lovely clean linen , comfy beds and well appointed bathroom. Downside was in very hot weather no a/c or room fridge though a fan was provided. The pool though dated and a little tired was wonderfully warm , and the hotel itself is just across from the beach . Free parking and free ice cream and juice for under 12s was an added bonus. We paid £304 for 2 nights B and B for 2 adults and a child which for August in Central Bournemouth in a 4star hotel was great value. Breakfast lovely and evening meal good value at £22 for 3 courses. Evening food service was a little haphazard ...ie on the first night our first choice of wine was unavailable and the replacement finally arrived as we finished our main courses, and the next night there was a shortage of menus so they were whisked away before ordering and we had to remember what we wanted when the waiter finally came to take the order. .....plus we were told dishes were unavailable to then find they weren't when ordering with a different waiter. Small inconveniences and overall a great value stay , we will need to return to the area and will have no hesitation in rebooking.
