We stayed for 3 night in the hotel. We were able to take our dog with us which was nice for us. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a little on the small side, but had everything we needed, including a balcony and sea view. We were a little disappointed that the pool was too cold...

we stayed on one of the apartments in the 1/2 term October 2016. The apartment we were issued was on the 2nd floor and had views over the outdoor pool area. The apartment itself was clean and had everything we needed, although not a problem the cooker was a little dated and the windows a little old looking but overall...

We had a lovely comfortable, quiet sea view room. As it was just after New Year the restaurant was very quiet which we enjoyed. The service was good and the meal was very good although we didn't receive our vegetables until half way through our main course. There was a good reason for this which the management had no hesitation...

There are some cafes and toilets along the 20 minute walk into Bournemouth and the pier. The room was very clean and had a...

We had a four night break new year 16/17.We had an apartment which although very good was not ideal for the hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your thoughts. I am sorry to hear that the event was not to your taste.
