Stayed for one week on a coach tour at this hotel. Phoned ahead previously to request ground floor room and was given one with no problem. A lovely room with a double and single bed so quite large. Lovely decor and curtains and very clean. A little bit old fashioned but no complaints. Breakfast and dinner very good with good... More

First the staff were all excellent and nothing was too much problem. Hotel is in a good position near to the cliffs, there is limited parking in front of the hotel. The hotel itself is a little dated. The room was adequate with no frills. Unfortunately in ours the toilet seat was loose and the bed had seen better days... More

If you are looking for something special this hotel is certainly not for you. It is very old fashioned and the lfit is so antiquated it's crazy, only 1 lift taking only 3 people at a time with no luggage with them for the 3 floors. Food is quite good though no complaints there . It is very basic but... More

Staff and service were fantastic, the food was nice and the people working there could not be more accommodating and helpful. insuring we were 100% satisfied. It was a 2 minute drive from the centre of Bournemouth, so easily walkable. Only downside was the rooms could probably do with updating.

Enjoyable stay in Bournemouth. Hotel not the most modern, but clean reasonable rooms and good value. Great location as a few minutes from the seafront. Limited parking onsite and in streets around. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel bar good place for some reasonably priced drinks before heading out for the evening.

Ok, so it's not The Ritz, but for the price you pay, it's excellent value for money; you can expect to pay twice as much for hotels in the same area. The staff are friendly & the owner is jolly nice too! Perfectly positioned for the beach & the shops, both within 5 minutes walk. Overall Fab!

Stayed for 2 nights over the weekend. Located just minutes from the gardens and beach, ten minute walk to town. All the staff were super friendly and go out of their way to help. Room was large with a massive bed (two singles together) I slept better than at home! Slightly dated and very compact bathroom but perfectly adequate and... More
