Val greeted us at the door with a big smile, after showing us the breakfast room we were taken to our room which was on the ground floor. Although the room didn't have an ensuite, we had our own bathroom just down the hall, which was not a problem. The building is old but the room was clean, the bed was king size and very comfortable. There was a flat screen tv with built in DVD player and a good range of DVD's available as well as several board games. The premises is licenced and the breakfast room became a bar area for visitors in the evening.
5 minutes walk to Boscombe pier and a further mile to Bournemouth jetty.
What this hotel lacked in modernisation was more than made up by the friendly and helpful assistance given by Val. Would recommend this for anyone looking for budget accommodation.
