My partner and I stayed at the hotel for two nights in July as we were guests at a friend's wedding. The location really is ideal, being able to walk down to the beach or to the town in less than ten minutes. We booked for their smallest room but received a free upgrade which was gratefully received, and we... More

outdated rabbit warren, only one small lift for guests & housekeeping. We had a double room with ensuite very claustrophobic and hot. We could not walk past the end of the bed without knocking the wall mounted TV. We have been travelling around the UK for 6 weeks including 12 days in London and this was the most expensive establishment... More

Hotel is only average couldn't really recommend. The bedroom was very small with twin beds and also far too warm even in March. Very dated and shabby. As for car parking it was awful. Tiny car park for hotel so never any room. Off road parking non existent and being disabled not ideal.

Spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel with my mum and my dog. We had a nice big corner room which was clean light and quiet. Hotel is 5 minutes walk to the dog friendly beach and a park with woods just 2 minutes walk. Highly recommend this hotel if you want a short break and don't want to leave... More

Would not recommend this hotel at all....for a start the reception staff were very rude, especially a lady called Gabriella who seemed to of been having a bad day and maybe should have stayed at home because she certainly didn't have the competence to deal with the general public we were told by the lady manager on duty that Gabriella...

We've visited this hotel before and were pleasantly surprised, this time however things were quite different. First off, whereas last time we stayed in one of the hotels larger rooms thanks to us being upgraded, this time we were in a standard double and even with a fan on and the window opened, it was still like a sauna in...

Given a tiny room and had to upgrade. Service poor, no-one seemed able to take responsibility to respond to concerns. Upgrade room was very good but advice to travellers is choose a bigger room up front. Bournemouth hotels maybe take customers for granted. Difficult to park at hotel and nearby - car park is small and fills quick. Decor a... More
