The hotel is clean and very tidy, but this is not a 4 star hotel we have stayed in many hotels around the world and i have to say the bed in the room was the worst bed ever, the room was very nice and a great view, it was not worth the price we paid you learn by your... More

Central is the word here as you are close to everything you need. Buses are right outside the door, including the big red tour bus.The beach across the road and big name shops just around the corner albeit on a rather steep road. Lovely hotel close to beach. We have never stayed in a hotel where the rooms were SO... More

My hubby and I stayed here for 4 nights for a long weekend away. The location is probably the best thing about this hotel considering we went to Bournemouth to be close to the beach. Literally a 5 min walk away. The decor is nice and room a good size. We liked how you don't walk straight into the room... More

A very good stay, we felt welcome and the staff were excellent. Our room was upgraded which was very welcome and items that I had left behind were mailed to me immediately, arriving at my home the very next day. The hotel is very conveniently located, close to the beach, and I liked the sturdy furniture! Breakfasts were excellent too.

So close to the beach so no need to pack massive bags for the whole day because it's so quick to pop back to grab something like suncream. There were lots of nice restaurants near by and lots of things to keep you entertained such as the aquarium next to the pair and the mini golf course in the park.... More

Very friendly staff that makes you feel welcome. I had a spacious room (501) on top floor, but the roof is sloped, so watch your head! Overlooks back of hotel. Bathroom did not have a shower (probably because of the sloped roof) only bath and hand shower. There are about 3 steps down from the entrance to the room where... More

This was our second stay at the hotel and we had our favourite 'signature' room (407 - highly recommended) overlooking Bournemouth pier and beach. Spotlessly clean and some nice extras such as a tower fan, mini fridge, coffee machine , quality biscuits, bottled water and fruit teas as well. Very helpful and friendly staff.
