Firstly, I’d like to say what a great little hotel this is... great deal for 2 nights with bed and breakfast, clean 3 star hotel with nice welcoming staff and good location for our stay in Bournemouth.
We really enjoyed the breakfast which had several hot options (I always go for the full English) and a good choice of cereals, fruit and fresh juices etc... lovely start to the day!
The staff were great and helped to find a parking space and also arrange taxis when required. The hotel itself was also very clean and the rooms were smart and comfy with a good bed and decent shower (over the bath) which helps, one thing I hate is when hotels/B&Bs have poor showers!
The only downside with the hotel was the creaking floorboards from the room above, it was really bad and meant that we had an interrupted sleep both nights and early morning. We were in room 1 which was on the ground floor and if we were to stay again we would certainly avoid this room, the noise felt like someone was going to come through and end up on the bed!
When I spoke to the staff about this after the first night they did mention that they were willing to move us and understood our frustrations and recommendations that someone should look into this before guest start to complain. We have stayed in other hotels in Bournemouth and sadly creaking floorboards and noisy pipes seem to be a common occurrence... hopefully the Montague will take note of this and address the issue to ensure that guest can sleep soundly..
Other than the creaks, thanks for a great stay!
