“It fulfills all the needs of anyone going to the BIC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

It ticks all the boxes, clean room, big bed, shower works satisfactorily , breakfast fine & a free car park! It's very handy for the BIC & the beach is only about 5 minutes away. Staff friendly, yes it's a bit of a warren but most of these Hotels are. Downside? Not a lot, Shampoo would have been nice in the Bathroom & the biggest gripe is the Lighting fitting in the Bathroom is too small (room 207) & not bright enough! All in all , fine & the Restaurant down stairs very good. Thanks for a nice stay.

Room Tip: Use the restaurant downstairs it's fine.

Stayed for 2 days. Pleasant greeting at reception. Clean and pleasantly appointed room, comfortable mattress, and quiet location. All staff at the hotel were friendly and made you feel welcome. Lovely view over the park, and ideally situated for the town and the beach. Would definitely return to this hotel. Breakfast selection was excellent, waffles, full English, every time of egg dish possible, eggs Benedict, florentine etc.

Stayed February 2014

Having experienced a superb breakfast at the Lampeter when staying at another hotel in Bournemouth last year, decided this time when going to the BIC to book a nights stay at the hotel as well. The room was lovely and clean, efficient shower and toilet and for an over 60, a comfortable bed with no bad back in the morning! Found the food very good and extremely convenient in bad weather to be able to eat in the hotel in a very stylish restaurant area.
Coming from a very quiet home was surprised at how quiet the hotel was and in the morning only noticed birds singing! Perhaps that could be different high season but the overall ambience of the hotel was peaceful. Also of course two minutes walk from the BIC and free car parking. Would definitely visit again and highly recommend.

Stayed for one night to accomodate a visit to BIC. Hotel has been further improved since last visit with further decorating etc.
Staff as usual extremely helpful and friendly.
Ate in the Hotel and found food was very good and reasonably priced.
Room was overlooking the gardens and was of a good size, very clean and bright with TV, tea/coffee making etc.
Another very pleasant stay at a location which really cannot be beaten for shops, gardens, beach, pier and theatres.
Have already booked a further short stay for later in the year

Room Tip: All rooms that we have used in the past have been pleasant, however, we prefer those looking out ove...

A good value hotel with free parking on site. All the staff are very welcoming & friendly. Our twin room was very clean and nicely furnished. The location is fantastic, just a short stroll to the BIC Centre. Downstairs is a great coffee bar and restaurant which has lovely views across Bournemouth gardens. You can walk through the gardens straight into the town centre and all the shops. Only negative point was the mattress had seen better days and was uncomfortable. Would stay again though.

Perfectly adequate hotel in all respects and an absolute bargain considering its location just 3 minutes from the seafront. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Although travelling solo, I was allocated a 'small double' room which was, indeed, small, but perfectly adequate for a short stay.

A night club fairly nearby was just a little noisy for a very light sleeper like myself, but had I shut the windows, there wouldn't have been an issue.

Other than a cooked breakfast, which was good, I didn't use the restaurant. The bar was comfy and not over priced.

The hotel never seases to achieve high standards, The two young girls on reception so full of personality, the restaurant got to be the best in Bournmouth for there fish menu. We have been traveling down to Bournmouth for 45yrs and consider ourselves to be well informed on whats available in the Town, Poole & Boscombe. Thanks again Roger in the Bar Restaurant. J & L Cullen.

Room Tip: Sea & Park views.
