Reasonable hotel for the night I stayed there and for the price I paid. I didn't get to use the spa but it looked OK. Parking was a real squeeze. The refundable deposit was a bit of a shock, not a usual thing for the hotels I normally use and I must have missed it in the "small print" !... More

I'm a hotel snob! Having worked for 2 major hotel groups I know about hotels and service. This hotel was questionable at first (bc it's a bit dates) BUT in the end it delivered and exceeded my expectations. Front desk was outstanding! The woman who checked us in was on top of everything including remembering the names of guests as... More

My wife and I have regularly stayed at this Hotel for some 15 years and have always given it a good report until now. We recently spent three nights there and discovered that a change of ownership had resulted in a lowering of standards. These range from minor such as limiting the number of coffee pods in the bedrooms to... More

Thank you for your comments, a little surprised although we had a change of ownership 15 months ago all of the management structure and key employees have remained the same. Apologise for the lift being out of service on day one whilst being serviced (45mins), 6 coffee pods replenished each day, did you asked at reception for any more? The... More

We felt welcome as soon as we entered the hotel. Friendly staff throughout our stay from reception through to bar and waiting staff. Comfortable and well laid out room which was very spacious and clean. Although we had been unable to book a sea view and the view was not great this was not a problem. This is obviously an... More

Recently stayed here for the Bournemouth air festival. Hotel is very nice, nicely decorated. The staff were very friendly. I found that the corridors were very narrow and you would struggle to get two people past each other in places. Breakfast didn't start till 8 on the Sunday, and was busy from the start. Due to the hotels central location,... More

We stayed here in June, the hotel itself is lovely and situated in a great position near the Arena and beach. Our room was lovely, nice and big, clean and nice extra touches with toiletries and tea coffee etc. The breakfast was good, a good variety of food. The only criticism is the staff and service. Tea and coffee were... More

Stayed with my sister for 2 nights. Reception are very welcoming and helpful. We were given a ground floor room (603) to start with which would have been ideal for my elderly sister had it not had a flight of steps up into the room, (very quirky and the only one like it in the hotel). The lovely lady on... More

Lovely location and great view over the seafront and gardens. All of the staff were helpful and friendly. The compact double room was as described but as there was no A/C it was rather warm. A sheet instead of a duvet could have helped to solve this problem in a very hot spell of weather. The self service breakfast was... More

We visited this hotel for the first time. Normally we either stay at the Royal Bath or rent a place. But seeing as it was only for a weekend it ticked all the boxes. Very clean and well presented Hotel, be it a little old in places. The new modern bar/ restaurant which is attached to the hotel has fabulous... More
