My wife and I went for a 3 night break over the bank holiday weekend to Hotel Piccadilly. First impressions were poor as we checked in and the receptionist was incredibly rude, didn't even tell us where our room was or when breakfast was, and then didn't offer any help with the bags.
The room was a double but very small with only just enough space at either side of the bed to walk down. Room got very hot at night but when the window was opened the traffic noise was too loud. So we were stuck in a catch 22. The bath was dirty when we arrived with hairs in at and the bathroom carpet was mouldy on the edges.
The food at meals was pretty poor. The food was bland and concentrated more on larger portions than quality. One night my wife had pasta with blue cheese and spinach, which basically consisted of some over cooked watery pasta and some oil drizzled on top. We sent it back and got something else. Service was alright but a bit abrupt at times. Plus the restaurant seemed to shut about 7:30pm for some strange reason.
Overall the hotel caters alright to its older dancing clientele but didn't really seem to care about younger guests like ourselves. Wouldn't go back at all, there's lots of other better places to stay in Bournemouth.
