I booked a room in this hotel for one night, I was working so all I wanted was a cheap room in a hotel with Wi Fi in the room. When I arrived and looked up at the white edifice it reminded me of a 1970's ice cream parlour, when they used to use the render to look like snow!... More

Given the huge choice of low cost hotels in Bournemouth, this must rate as one of the best. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to the Lower Gardens, pier, BIC, beaches and The Triangle. Parking is limited at the hotel, but found a space with no problem. Good choice of budget and quality/fine dining restaurants within walking distance.... More

The Food was very good and the rooms very good and clean. All sorts of rooms. Very Central to Town Center and Bus stops too all close Towns. And close to Pier. Nice walk's down the sea front and a nice little train if you don't want to walk back.

Have just had a weekend break at this lovely traditional hotel with my daughter and grandson. The location is second to none, with lovely views over the gardens, and just a short walk into the town or down to the beach and the pier. There is a footpath at the back of the hotel which leads straight into the gardens,... More

What a lovely review, thank you so much for taking the time! You’re right, the walk through the gardens is prettier, but the footpath is not much longer. Our maintenance man will be pleased to get a mention, and we hope your car got you home safely. More

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and go back there because of the service, food and location. The service is excellent with the staff doing everything they can to make your holiday a happy one. The food is very good and we have always had a clean room and bed.
