Stayed at this hotel for a birthday party being held there. The twin room with balcony was fantastic. Clean tidy with plenty of towels. Tea and coffee well stocked. Could not fault the room in any way. Next morning there was full english breakfast with cereals yoghurt sand fruits. The food was as always, fantastic. The staff are very attentive.... More

This hotel is a gem, great service, friendly welcome, beautiful bedrooms (we stayed in superior double with balcony) and a party buffet and venue with lovely garden area to spill out into and enjoy the evening sun. Have been a guest at previous functions and this occasion was for me, as always top class service and hospitality. Our room was... More

Don't whatever you do stay in room 30. We checked in and told the owner about the smell of smoke, she said she would spray air freshener which I'm sure she did. However despite the window being left open for 6 HOURs whilst we were at a wedding reception it was still smelly when we got back. I am asthmatic,... More

I am extremely sorry about the room smelling of smoke we are a smoke free hotel and there is a sign on all doors to that effect. I was as upset as you were to find somebody had been smoking in one of my bedrooms. I could not move you as the hotel was full. I did spray the room... More

Booked this hotel very last minute for my daughter's university visit after being unable to find a room at anywhere in central Bournemouth. The hotel is in a great location, just a few minutes walk to a lovely beach and a short drive into the town centre. Parking is a bit limited but plenty in the streets around if the... More

We stayed for just 1 night here and didn't eat in tge restaurant, so I can't comment on the food. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and had no problems checking in. The room is perhaps a little tired with peeling wallpaper but to us this really didn't matter as we were looking for somewhere that was good value,... More

We ended up in Bournemouth on our first wedding anniversary and wanted to ensure that we had reservations at good restaurants lined up for the duration of our stay, naturally we 'Trip Advisored' the fine dining options for the local area and Gilby's always seemed to rate highly. We booked in and were lucky to find that our stay coincided... More

Can't praise this hotel highly enough. We were here for 5 days in April with National Coach Holidays and this hotel has to be their best one yet. Friendly and helpful staff. Food is restaurant quality, ordered evening meal at breakfast and vice versa to cut down on waiting time at table and waste in kitchen. Our room was very... More

Just returned from a National Holiday break. 2nd year in succession. Hotel is brilliant, staff excellent and helpful. Food is excellent especially as you pre order from the menu and is served plated. Family run. Gardens exquisite. All in all a truly wonderful stay.

My room had a balcony with a back view, but still it was lovely to be able to sit out with my coffee in the morning. Shower AMAZING!!! Only downside to... More
