“So not what you'd expect”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

What a beautiful hotel. Shame on all the others for making their hotels stinky. This is cheap hotel considering, and a tremendous find might I add. A grand yet modern take on Art Deco inside, and clean and comfortable to boot. Just what 1930's hotels should have been like on the day they opened. Avoid all the tired old big hotels and go for this classy joint.

Stayed July 2014

I have to say after a terrible experince of where I had orginially booked .. Decided to go see if this hotel was available... Fully booked suddenly whilst at reception a booking came available on line.. The receptionst Samatha was so helpful,polite and welcoming... From the whole duration she made our stay feel 5 star.. Truly a hotel I would recommend for location, customer service, it's clean. And worth every penny... Thank you Sam for being a superstar x

Stayed here for a stag weekend. First of, this is a great location not far from the beach and walking distance to all the main bars.

The customer service here is very good and all the staff we encountered were extremely welcoming and positive. The rooms are spacious, freshly decorated and yes the beds are comfortable. Wifi is good - worth getting as general 3G coverage throughout Bournemouth is very poor - but a shame it couldn't be free.

On the downside, parking is restricted to a public car park opposite which costs £12.50 for 24-hours and no offer of refund from the hotel.

Whilst you maybe able to live with that you may feel different with the breakfast. Again a great welcome as you enter but the quality of the food makes the £6 charge grossly expensive. I've had breakfasts all round the world and never tasted sausages this horrible. The bacon was as hard and brittle as I've ever seen other when I've left it under my grill for 15-mins, while the beans just tasted cheap. All very disappointing so a visit to McD's for an egg McMuffin on the second morning was worryingly comforting.

Therefore book the hotel but think before parking and don't go for the breakfast.

As for Bournemouth on hen/ stag do's be warned that most bars don't like accepting any large same-sex groups so where you can go will be largely restricted.

Room Tip: If going for beach facing the views are nice but be warned of the late night noise.

have stayed at the premier several times and found it very enjoyable have just returned for what i thought would be alovely weekend how dissapointing to say the least we were given our room it was atiny box with an awful view of industrial tin boxes we complained and were given another room small and claustrophobic and then relised we were next to a stag party which kept us awake until 4am in the morning we were eventually moved again to anice room but as we were only staying for 2 nights what a joke and it was my wedding anniversary we wont be returning again

Room Tip: always check when booking what facilities you room has

No, not the time of year but the very helpful and cheerful receptionist. In truth all of the staff were great, but April was memorable. The hotel itself was perfectly located, just a few minutes walk from the beach, with restaurants such as Wagamama, Prezzo and Chimichanga literally a few steps from the front door. The decor was fantastic. You really can't do much better than this in Bournemouth

This hotel makes great efforts to make life easy for those who are unable to walk. There is a lift into the hotel from street level, a lift to the Manhattan Bar and most important of all a "roll in shower" in the bathroom. Why is it that there is always a shower over the bath - ludicrous! There is always room for improvement but this is one of the most thought about layouts for the disabled that we have come across - great!
