“Back again, and will be back whenever I need to stay in Bournemouth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Had to go back again after my first experience and it was even better this time around.

Was lucky enough to be upgraded and had a superb view of the beach.

Hotel was better than I remembered, and everything was faultless from check in to check out. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Very well appointed room and the bed was incredibly comfy.

Stayed for a show at the BIC which is just opposite. So nice to just roll out of there and up a few steps, into a lift and into a comfortable bed.

Will happily use again and I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone.

Last minute booking. Friendly and professional welcome. Upgraded to a very spacious sea view room. Can't fault t his hotel in any way. We put our breakfast order out to be served in our room the next morning. For some reason it was not delivered, but when I phoned reception they sorted it out and breakfast was delivered within 15 minutes with no extra charge. So I don't really see this as a negative. Will recommend this hotel without a doubt. 2 minute walk to seafront, nice restaurants and clubs all within 10/15 minute walk and town centre about 15 minute walk. Also opposite BIC which is very handy as well.

Myself and partner spent an idyllic weekend in this fantastic boutique hotel in Bournemouth. The staff were really friendly and could not do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. We must single out the awesome Jason, the night manager. He was totally informed on what was going on locally, and spent considerable time listening to the sort of entertainment we liked. He advised on a local production that made our weekend. When my partner spoke to Jason in the early hours of the morning he whipped up a fantastic ham and cheese sandwich complete with side salad. All done with a happy cheerful smile. Jason you are a credit to the hotel. Totally recommend this hotel, and if you need a late night snack Jason is there.

We stayed in one of the seaview rooms at this hotel and it was perfect - very spacious with a separate seeting are and a very comfy bed! There was a high standard of cleanliness throughout and our room was light and airy. Will definately use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Would definately recommend a seaview room and the top floor was very quiet.

When we arrived the hotel staff were very friendly. We stayed in room 501 at the hotel, lovely sized room at the top of the hotel with everything you need and lovely views. The hotel is right opposite the Bournemouth International Centre and such a nice feeling knowing that you haven't got a long journey after a gig. The breakfast in the morning was ample with cereals, yoghurt, fruit, pastries, cheese and meats, followed by freshly cooked to order food such as salmon and eggs how you want them, full English or vegetarian breakfast, I'm also a coffee snob and the coffee is gorgeous, thank-you for making our evening extra special, will definitely be coming back.

We booked the Park Central last minute, & got one of their family rooms. It was very spacious & couldn't be faulted. The sea view was exceptional, & the location is close to all Bournemouth has to offer.
We only used the restaurant for breakfast, but did have a drink in the bar, with Malibu & cola @ £5-20 a go, we never hung around the bar for long :( Overall a very nice hotel, & we would stay again.
