We booked this hotel as we were going to a gig at the BIC. The main reason for the choice was the location.
The hotel is undergoing some redecoration, but it extremely tired and very outdated. It looks like something from Fawlty Towers from the 70s!
The staff were very helpful, and the breakfast was good, but as I stay in hotels all week I feel I am more than qualified to say that I thought that £60 was about three times too much.
I'm sure the hotel will be better when finished, but with so many options in Bournemouth I wont be staying again.
