We stayed here on a Groupon deal. I don't know why but I had low expectations.. However, the room (we upgraded to a sea view) in the West Wing was very good. Very clean bathroom. There were a few old stains on the carpet and the wallpaper was peeling a little by the windows, but I was happy with the room.
It was also VERY hot in there. We turned off the radiator immediately and opened the windows.
The TV was big and had a good picture, comfy bed.
Breakfast was buffet, with additional items available to order - poached free range eggs (expertly done), boiled eggs, kippers, poached smoked haddock, veggie sausages.
They didn't have soya milk but the waitress said she would have it the following morning if we were there another night.
There was a funny little old-fashioned walkway through added on buildings to get to the pool etc which my husband used and said was warm.
Walk down through the gardens to get to Boscombe beach - remember the PIN code for the gate.
Overall, we had a lovely night away and the sun shone on the front. Even better.
