4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Room for 2 with breakfast for 2 nights which was really good deal. We enjoyed very, only mattress was hard and you could feel metal parts of it. Staff really helpful and polite. Maybe view wasn't on sea site but probably we booked too late. Shame that we have only one day good weather.

Situated on the beachfront and within walking distance of Bournemouth pier, the location couldn't be any better. A very friendly and professional welcome at reception and an explanation of the facilities, including a gym and a number of swimming pools. The room we stayed in was very small and basic but fairly clean and comfortable. For the price paid it... More

A very well positioned hotel near the beach, walking distance of the pier and town, a bus service hourly outside the hotel. Room was small and dated but clean, bathroom small but adequate needed updating. Food was good and staff very good.

The double bedroom was tiny. A small double bed with an awful mattress and thin pillows. I paid £260 for 2 nights. A complete ripoff. The car park was full. The staff did not order my papers. Hopeless.

I assume like many of Trip Advisor readers you digest information from several reviews of the hotel combining both the good and the bad before finally making your decision. This is because everyone is different, were all individuals with different tastes as the saying goes “One man’s meat is another man’s poison”. So I will give you an unbiased review... More
