Stayed for 4 nights in a superior room. Warm welcome by Andrew upon arrival, good explanation regarding COVID/breakfast arrangements. The room was huge, big comfy bed and modern bathroom. Spotlessly clean. Nice touches with little pots of team/coffee sugar and fresh milk in a bottle. Understandably, the room was unable to be cleaned during out stay and we were informed of this from the outset. No problem. Great selection of hot and cold breakfast food, with the option of cooked to order from the menu. Excellent. A big plus for me was being able to have a gluten free hot breakfast as I am a coeliac. Set us up for the day, very tasty and good portion size. Great location, free parking, friendly and helpful host. The only reason we've not given 5 stars is that we felt the hotel needs some refurbishment and is a little tired in places, but given the current circumstances we live with this is a minor issue compared to the plus points. I'm sure that, given time for this, it will be an absolute gem. We will be back.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. Andrew was very welcoming on our arrival and nothing was too much trouble for the staff at breakfast the following morning. The hotel was in an ideal location for us with the pier being no more than a 5 minute walk away, and also with lots of variety of restaurants and bars within a 10 minute walk. With the current covid situations, check in was made really easy and they've taken good precautions by allocating times for breakfast to make sure all guests aren't in the same room at once. On site parking was an added bonus! We would definitely re book if we travelled to Bournemouth again! I'm sure in the current climate many businesses have struggled and i'd rather pay my money to support a smaller run place with owners that clearly care about guest satisfaction and that take price in their hotel. We had a lovely time!

The only good thing to say about this hotel is the bed was very comfortable, apart from that there is nothing good to say. Having been assigned a slot for breakfast on both mornings of our stay, we found ourselves waiting nearly an hour on both mornings before being served. The service was very poor with no interest in us as customers and the response from the owner was "you can't get the staff"! No apologies were offered or explanation given. The food provided was sub-standard and did not meet the expectations from other reviews given here.

It is very disappointing to receive a review like this one. If you found the food to be sub-standard, then you should have raised this at the time so we can understand what the problem is, and we could have tried to rectify it. We regularly get plaudits for the quality of our breakfasts (as well as for the comfort of our beds) so I am not sure what went wrong here. I must pick you up on your comment about waiting for nearly an hour on both mornings. (On your first day, I happened to walk into the dining room before the guests with the slot after you had arrived. So the maximum wait would have been 15 minutes.) I noticed that there was no waitress in there, so immediately approached each table and checked if they were ok. (not sure how this gives the impression that i have no interest in you as customers ??) I can only apologize that you got the impression that we had no interest in you as a customer, all the other reviews on here apart from yours prove that this is not the case,

This was a lovely hotel with Andrew being very helpful and welcoming, ensuring all social distancing was maintained. Breakfasts were ample and well cooked, and the room was quiet. Guests were left alone while encouraged to seek help if they needed to. I have already booked my next trip.

Had a one night stay at this hotel and it was a pleasant experience. They had great measures in place for the current situation and so felt safe. The location was great, one road back from the seafront, so a 2 minute walk to the sea view and a lovely 10-15 walk along the promenade to the pier and centre. And best of all dog friendly! Would highly recommend.
