    Bournemouth break

    Great location, reception staff where really helpful and great service in the bar. Rooms could do with a little more attention to clean sheets and maybe remove the torn net curtains.

    Great location

    Really nice stay, rooms are spacious although a little dated but nice and clean. Staff friendly, a great breakfast served by happy smiling staff. There is a nice bar and terrace as well as a more lively bar/club. There was live music both nights we stayed. The hotel is 5 minutes from beachfront/pier and 30 minute walk to the railway station. Bars and restaurants are also in easy walking distance. Highly recommended.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The staff were not welcoming, and didn’t give adequate information regarding booking dinner reservations. The restaurant was fully booked on Monday night and they couldn’t accommodate us as paying Hotel guests nor could they provide room service, even though we had 2 small children. We therefore had to go to a local supermarket to feed the children that night. The rooms were not cleaned daily, bins were not even emptied daily nor tea stock/cups etc replenished unless you asked. Parking was not available on site which we weren’t aware off until after we’d paid and booked.
