Myself, Husband and Daughter stayed at the Savoy on a Shearings break 17 -21Feb 2014. We
looked at different reviews and decided to give it a go, affording ourselves the luxury of a room upgrade from Standard to Standard Plus, meaning the room had been refurbished.
The Savoy was lovely,the staff were warm, friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble. My husband has mobility issues and uses a stick and unfortunately I was on crutches due to a knee/ankle injury sustained on the 10th Feb. I hired a mobility scooter for my husband prior to arrival and then hired a second for myself. These were stored effortlessly in reception for recharging every night. Our rooms were absolutely beautiful and clean, our double 103 (near to the lift) and daughters single 105. Brand new carpets, deluxe orthopaedic mattresses on the beds, lovely duvets and linen, flat screen tv's, tea/coffee facilities freely replenished. Nice furniture, spotlessly clean bathroom with endless fluffy, soft white towels and toiletries if you required them.
The restaurant was wonderful with waiter service, breakfast was good quality fruit juices, different cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, toast,Tetley's Tea and Egbert Douwe coffee followed by a menu offering full English Breakfast, eggs boiled, poached, scrambled or fried, Vegetarian Breakfast, ham and eggs, kippers, salmon and scrambled eggs. On our table there was individual jams, marmalades, honey and butter/spreads all branded names.
Dinner in the evening once again beautifully served and lots of choices, warm rolls, soups, fish, meat, vegetarian choice, chef signature dish, steamed vegetables, salad and a nice filling dessert or something lighter, delicious 3 course meal in all not forgetting tea/coffee and wine if desired. All the public rooms and toilets were clean airy and warm, very pleasant surroundings. Each evening there was entertainment and we were able to buy drinks at the bar which was reasonably priced. Also the Brasserie served huge wedges of delicious cake with tea or coffee for £3.75, unfortunately not for me, too full from breakfast. Outside the Garden Restaurant there is a lovely terrace with seating and it's lit in the evening. We were able to sit out during the day due to the extremely clement weather for February. As I've already said we did look at reviews and also we checked Food Safety Agency or Scores on the Doors site, rates hospitality businesses for food, hygiene and conditions, scores ranging from 1 the lowest, to 5 the highest. Savoy scores 5, rightly so, they have in my opinion earned it. Bournemouth is beautiful, Savoy was the icing on the cake, I have recommended it to my family and friends and would definitely return there.
