The hotel is perfectly fine if you are happy with a slightly upmarket Premier Inn /Travelodge experience at the company’s expense but if you want a holiday experience you might want to look for somewhere a bit closer to Bournemouth.
In particular, with respect to the website wording:-
“Where life’s a beach” – the beach (and life) is 3-4 miles away.
“You’ll love to be beside the seaside at Bournemouth Village” – you might if this were true but you might instead love to be beside the Hospital, Tesco 24 hour megastore and the rest of the business park.
“Learn to surf” – in the indoor pool maybe?
“Catch some rays” – admittedly the sun does occasionally shine on the outside tables which are in the car park.
“Dine al fresco in beachfront cafes” – just a short taxi ride away, £14 each way.
“When the sun goes down head for cocktails in the town’s vibrant nightspots” - just a short taxi ride away, £14 each way.
To sum up, nothing much wrong with this hotel if you are a business customer.
