This hotel is right in the centre of Bournemouth convenient for just about everything. It could maybe do with a bit of TLC in places but its a good hotel with friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast staff are especially good and work really well together and the food is good. Rooms are really clean and the beds are really comfy. We had room 201 which showed signs of aging but suited us fine. Dont expect a quiet stay though as the area is a popular clubbing part of the town. We are 70 and it didn't bother us as we are night hawks but there is a constant disco thud from next door most of the day until 2am. Secure gated parking is a real bonus, its extra but well worth it. Would def stay here again.

Very dated hotel - glad I went mid-week as the bar below looks like it would be very noisy. Not impressed with the £8 per night parking when I filtered for hotels with parking - thought that was included.

Not the best place needs a huge update!
We walked in the room and it stank of smoke like someone had been smoking in the room, the window wouldn’t open so we couldn’t get any clean air through the room. We call reception to ask if we could get the window open and they said it doesn’t but you have a fan in your room. The fan on highest blowing no air. So it was very hot for a room of 4 people. The only good thing is the beds were comfy. Majorly needs an update and a good airing out.
