“Can't beat all-inclusive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2009

First impressions where good, but hotel does look a bit tired. but clean and tidy.

Arrived and booked into room straight away, staff polite. Use stairs don't bother with lift.

Room clean and tidy, with plenty of tea & coffee. Bathroom does need updating.

All-inclusive was first class, considering the money we paid, it was very good value.

All dining room staff quick and polite, Food was very good, with plenty of choice.

Entertainment at night was good with quizes, bingo, dancing and a different cabaret every night. And minehost Amanda was first class very dry and funny, very quick witted. And gave us a good laugh with plenty of banter.

Location good at East Cliff, 20 min walk into Bournemouth.

This was our first visit to a Sherings hotel, and would certainly go again on a Mon-Fri break. Plus I would say all guests were very friendly and met some good company.

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.

Went to this Hotel with Shearings on an All-inclusive. Very clean hotel.Food excellant. Entertainment first class. All the staff helpfull, only drawback I could say would be the distance into Bournmouth, although there is a good bus service. Also the lift is so small not a pleasant ride! Beware of the water it is VERY hot!

room 109 is apparantly notorious for not having adequate running cold water in the tiny handwash basin and a manager said everyone in this room complains but it is regulations!!!. with no proper plug or plug hole the scalding hot water drains straight away and god help you if you don't realise that the water in the mixer cold tap is hot!!! pointing out that the water in bath and overhead shower is as should be, I was told that disabled people cannot access them and so that is alright. how is someone disabled expected to wash in a non water retaining sink with no adequate cold water supply. There is no toilet seat back and therefore nowhere for someone who needs to sit to dress. I didn't think to hike the chair from the bedroom in. Beds were not made properly but this was rectified immediately. Front of house foreign staff need more training in customer handling, not being rude, inconsiderate, disinterested in guests, adjectives fail me. On asking reception staff using a mobile phone on the first floor, to move so I could help someone to their room, I was told to practically carry someone over painting cloths on the floor and push past the paint cans and painter. the pots were outside the first floor rooms all week. the cloths were totally unnecessary to be completely covering the whole length of a long corridor with two fire doors, and only one painter. Paint cans were piled up outside the same room doors for three days. one resident of room 105 had a nasty surprise when someone walked into her room and she was in a state of undress. other nearby yale keys fit the doors. The floor in the dining room was also not cleaned after the evening meal and at breakfast you had to be sure not to look down or you could be put off your breakfast. Apart from these problems it was a lovely , clean hotel. other staff were nice and food selection and presentation excellent,except for me being shown up in the dining room when asking about food products to which I am seriously allergic. But I am Yorkshire and will not be put down that easily. Will I go with shearings again? I dont know. May I say the coach drivers were all wonderfu,l and made the holiday, as they did a lot for us in the hotel as well on the tours.

Hotel was very good. Only real faults were the lift which has been mentioned ,I have seen bigger dumb waiters.The blue chairs in the lounge should be replaced or covered.
The entertainment was OK , but the Impressionest could do with updating his jokes and not putting the elderly down so much
I would like to thank our waitress (Olga) who made meal times a pleasure nothing was to much for and always with a smile.
The holiday was spoilt by going to the joining point and having to wait 2 hours ,much of the time we was stood up ,as the place is to small for the number fo people using it .
Coming back the M1 was supposed to be closed and our driver was given wrong info which meant we ended up 9 hours on the coach the we had a further journey from the joining point
