Eventually got checked in &...

Went for a spa day package with a party of 5 people. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, could spend all day in the pool, sauna and steam room while waiting for your treatment. Staff were so friendly and very knowledgeable and skilled at the treatments, made you feel very comfortable, the whole day was so relaxing. Would definitely go back again...

We had a back shoulder and massage with a 2 course lunch included. The massage, by Laura, was superb. The spa facilities were good, not excellent, steam spa, sauna, jacuzzi and...

We had a Standard Twin room for two nights, which was perfect for our needs and was very clean. The swimming pool and spa facilities are outstanding and you could end up spending your whole time in Bournemouth with a towel around you! You are spoiled for choice when it comes to eating - the Brasserie provides excellent informal dining...

We chose this hotel for a short break over Easter purely on the basis that it had a Spa and previous reviews were good. I must say that firstly all the staff we came across were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was situated a short walk from the beach and within walking distance to the Town centre. It was...

I made an unconfirmed booking, which was waiting on information regarding disability provision for my mother. I was told a credit card was necessary to reserve the room and I would receive more information from the hotel, which would enable me to confirm. I was specifically told that no money would be taken from my card until this confirmation was...

We had a great time at the hotel, our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The swimming pool/spa facilities were also excellent. All staff seemed very friendly, professional and keen to help if needed. The hotel was in a brilliant location for both the BIC (for a concert we were attending) and Bournemouth town centre, and we found both of...
