My wife and I stayed for two nights and enjoyed the experience. We were delighted by our very large sea view room which had a sizeable bathroom. Staff were helpful and pleasant and hotel in good condition - clean and good decorative state. Dining room is very large and rather quaint - probably not much changed in 50 years but... More

I will be staying in Bournemouth weekly for the next two years so over the past few weeks I've tried out 4 hotels. This is my favourite to date so I'm going to use it regularly. I had a lovely bright and large room with a splendid sea view. No complaints at all. Nice bar downstairs with a patio area... More

Stopped here and was pleasantly surprised that my standard room had been upgraded to a suite! This means they clearly did not know who I am!!! That is nice! Along with nice decor in room, very comfy bed and free no need to register wi-fi that reached 7.2 Mbps. Well done Hallmark. Staff very pleasant, even to a grumpy person... More

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel as a last minute get away on 'late luxury'. There was absolutely nothing luxury about this hotel. The food was diabolical verging on inedible: we had dinner in the hotel which consisted of a completely tasteless and overcooked food. Breakfast was worse- raw sausages, raw black pudding.. The hotel in general is run... More

We stayed at the hotel on the 14th/15th September. Very friendly and helpful staff on the reception and we were allocated sea view rooms. We (14 guys) ate in the restaurant on the first night and whilst the menu was not extensive, we were very happy with the selection and the quality of the food cooked. Breakfast was acceptable, however... More

Well sited hotel, stayed in Rm 110 and found the room quite large and clean but tired and was in need of decorating (loose wallpaper, flaking paint). The food was well cooked but comparing it to other hotels in the near vicinity that we have stayed in found the menu somewhat lacking. We found that the odd few members of... More

Great location for the centre of Bournemouth. A short 10 minute walk. Car parking is available at a charge of £10 a night. Staff were excellent.
