Booked a two night break through Shearings following an advert in the Daily Mail. This included breakfast and dinner. This hotel is in great need of refurbishment. It is difficult to believe that in the 21st century hotels of this tired 70's style are still in business. I suppose you could say it is good value for money. But I think that would depend on what you value. If you are looking for clean and tidy rooms with comfortable furnishings, then this is not good value for money. The carpet throughout the hotel is very dirty except in the bar and entertainment area. This looked to be replaced and tidy. The bed in our room is not very comfortable, and the shower hose is covered in black mould. All furniture is MFI. The ceiling plaster in the toilet/shower is crumbling away. The walls in the room are cracked and in need of repair. The decor very sad with mismatched furnishings.
The food is good value and the service is excellent. The hotel receptionist is helpful. And the entertainment is excellent. The location is very good, a short stroll to the beach and a lovely flat walk to the pier and into town.
Needless to say it does not have Wifi connection.
I can only comment on the accomodation in Room 114, but I would not recommend a stay here. There must be more modern and up to date, clean and tidy accomodation in Bournemouth that would be of equal good value.
