Check in very professional and car parking very easy in their underground car park.
Had a special offer with dinner this on both nights was excellent food as well as table service.
The breakfast topping up by staff was not very quick but adequate.
Location has to be one of the best for town centre shops.
Bar staff service was carried out quickly and well even though one of the nights was busy.
We had room 215 with roll top bath and flat screen tv and extra wide bed.
I think some lighting by the wardrobe area would have been good but that's nit picking.
All in all a good couple of days in a well run hotel.
Would highly recommend staying here if an offer is on.

An excellent hotel in a great location for the town centre. Very friendly staff, quiet room (309), excellent food at dinner but variable at breakfast for some unknown reason. Would certainly visit again if thesame winter deal was offered.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back on higher floors a better bet for quietness

Hotel in an excellent position and styleish design. Comfortable rooms. Very friendly and efficient staff. Excellent food. Half price sparkling wine Friday evenings. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

I'm staying on business for 3 weeks and was given the impression this was a grand hotel. It's a shame because it is in a great location in the centre of town.
My first night was unsettled, twin beds pushed together as a double no great.
I reported that my room was cold that night and asked for an extra blanket in my room as the heating seemed faulty, arrived back later that day and neither the heating was fixed or a blanket in my room, back to reception and a blanket and electric heater was provided. Breakfast selection is okay but the English is not up to much.
I'm also glad I'm not paying for parking at £13 a night it's not cheap. The corridor floors squeak and moan as you travel through the hotel and the room needs some TLC. Lastly the tv channels are limited and not even the usual freeview stuff.
Given a choice I would try somewhere else next time.

Excellent service ,in a central location.Food and room are all you would expect and more from thid prestigoud hotel.Have no doubts this is good and you wont be dissapointed.

Room Tip: Check your room is not next or opposite the boiler room.Can be a little annoying at night

I booked a family room (2 adults, 2 kids) at this hotel for New Year's Eve 2012. We just wanted a room for the night with a plan to grab an early dinner with the kids and our expectations were not particularly high as we already knew that the hotel was heavily booked with people attending a gala NYE dinner/dance. From the moment that we arrived the staff, whilst rushed off their feet with preparing for the evening event, were attentive, friendly and great with the kids. We settled in quickly into a comfortable and spacious room, made use of the pool and spa bath facilities and then, hungry, headed down for some dinner. Unfortunately the hotel could not provide us with food on this evening, but as I said, we knew about the gala dinner in advance so no real problem...although it would have been nice to have been told at the point of booking that dinner would not be available, even in the bar. We headed out into what was a less busy Bournemouth town centre than expected (easy to find a restaurant with space - Zizzi in this case - even on NYE) and upon return to the hotel they were again all over us with welcomes, joking with the kids etc and invited us to join the midnight celebrations even though we were not part of the gala dinner package (we were, of course, all fast asleep by midnight but it was a nice offer!). Breakfast the following morning was excellent and upon check out, an offer to leave our car in the hotel car park until we were ready to return to London was a nice touch that finished off a very nice short stay which was everything that we expected, given the busy time that we were there. This place is totally family friendly and is easy to recommend. If using the pool save yourself time by getting the access code to the pool BEFORE going to the pool and be careful of how deep the pool is - it is a small pool with a very steep gradient half way along down to 2 metres.
