Our room which was supposedly an upgrade (paid by us) was rather shabby. The furniture was very old fashioned similar to post war utility. The finishing in the bathroom were bad and the shower was very hard turn on. The tea tray was very limited not even a biscuit The breakfast was mainly cold, bacon looked like it had there...

We had a great stay, the staff were at all times friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate and good quality. Our evening meals were splendid with an excellent choice of wines and great service.

Stayed for two nights bed and breakfast in superior double room. The room was well furnished with a very clean modern bathroom with walk in shower. The bed was large and comfortable. Fresh towels were provided daily. The buffet style breakfast was excellent quality. Car park charge is £10 per 24 hours which is cheap for Bournemouth.

We had a very comfortable and well appointed, clean room which was serviced properly on a daily basis. The staff were most professional, welcoming and efficient. Ideal location between the seafront and the centre of town - perfect.

Hotel was ok overall but same as a previous review from jackred61 we paid £40 for a room upgrade and although the room was a reasonable size the ensuite was the smallest I have ever seen, so we felt this cannot be a superior room, this was disappointing and as usual we did not complain, but we would not return...

Nice clean rooms, staff very friendly and food good for a large hotel. Have only given three stars as although they have their own car park they charge £10 per 24 hours for guests, hence it was easy to get a space! There is parking all around the hotel, that is if you can find a space! And that was...

Used a buyagift voucher and upgraded to a superior room. Room was large and bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Only one thing of concern. The car parking game. £10 charge for 24 hours, but unless you left car in car park they couldn't guarantee you a space on...

On booking this hotel, I was advised that they only had superior rooms available for my chosen dates. I accepted this as I do quite often upgrade particularly when booking short breaks. On our arrival I was asked to pay £40 upgrade fee which I duly did. However on entering our room I was quite surprised as from memory of...
