Stayed here at very short notice. Booking and reception very easy, friendly, helpful staff, free parking and free WiFi. Very nice room with balcony and everything you needed for a comfortable stay. We ate in the restaurant in the evening as the hotel is a good 20 minute walk into the centre of town (but close to the coast). The...

Just come back after a 3 night stay. Had a brilliant time, staff are very friendly and accommodating. We had a sea view room and would recommend this when booking. Food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and of excellent quality. Best hotel in Bournemouth if you are looking for peaceful break.

We treated our selves to a chocolate afternoon tea. It was beautiful. The room and the lay out of the table was lovely. There was a lot of choice, various chocolates, cheese cakes and puddings, including crepes and waffles. Two big beautiful chocolate fountains, along with various sweets in a large champagne glass. The staff were friendly and a raffle...

Four of us stayed here for 3 nights - what a treat. The hotel is situated above the East Overcliffe, with plenty of free onsite parking. The views from the seaview room are superb, with the Isle of Wight in one direction across to Sandbanks and Old Harry Rocks to the other. The greeting at Reception was super-friendly and welcoming...

I LOVED this place!!! If an American truly desires to experience all that is glorious in England, this is the place to stay! Do yourself a favor, and enjoy their traditional tea with sandwiches and light desserts.

We stayed overnight during the Bournemouth Airshow and the staff were absolutely fabulous. The decor is lavish and fun, if a little OTT, and the rooms comfortable and clean. The only thing that was a shame was the entertainment laid on when it rained one day - it was way too loud, meaning we were unable to speak to each...

Just a few yards from the shore and situated on a quiet lane it is perfect for a quiet holiday / weekend. We were on a football weekend and it's about 40 mins walk to the ground. The staff and hotel are first class - we couldn't fault anything.
