My fiancé and I went here to look at the hotel as a possible wedding venue. Whilst we waited for the wedding coordinator, we were offered a drink. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful. I asked if they had soya milk, and the bar lady did her upmost to find out for me, sadly they did not. Which I think they should have. The surroundings and decor of the hotel are beautiful. Lovely bright colours but all bought together with pretty accessories. The only problem was the reception area is quite dark and small.
When Sarah came to greet us, she was well presented, friendly and very helpful. We discussed what we would like for our wedding and she listened and took into consideration what we wanted, talked through everything and explained prices well and clearly. We were given a tour of the wedding rooms, to say they're beautiful is very apt. Big and well lit, and the reception room has its own bar and is bright and spacious. After our tour, we sat back down and were given a price for what we wanted for our day. It is very reasonable indeed.
Afterwards we decided to eat there, to try the food. The menu is small not to much to chose from, which I prefer as to much choice is daunting. The food was well priced, and was served quickly. It was lovely, well presented and good portion.
The view of Bournemouth beach is fantastic, and the garden out the front could do with some TLC but still decent.
We were so impressed, we have chosen to have our wedding here and am very much looking forward to it!!
