Small and friendly establishment, clean with wonderful views of the sea. A little too far from Bournemouth centre but would stay here again.

Average over priced
Thought was a little expensive for a room above a pub . Very basic met my needs but was extremly busy and the steaks were over cooked but this was resolved but duty manager who was very helpful . Check in was not great stood in middle of bar till someone was free and then was quite a lengthy check in . 2 flights of stairs to my room . View over back kitchen area . For £99 thought abit over priced stayed better .

Room is very compact and far too hot in the evening with only a tiny window to open making a good nights sleep impossible. Room was clean but found a used condom in the bin. No hot water for a shower on last day. Very friendly helpful staff
