Lovely hotel. Staff made it such a wonderful stay and were extremely helpful and kind!! The front is slightly dated but don't let that put you off as the inside is immaculate and well kept. The rooms are cleaned well every day which was good for us as we were quite messy and sandy each day. Really close to the...

I booked here after researching on trip advisor. I'd never been to Bournemouth & I only booked a couple of weeks before my visit (I guess by that late stage all the better hotels were already booked up, it being during the summer holidays). The hotel looks OK as you drive towards it but the front entrance is a huge...

Booked the family room for 5 of us (room 22 ) at the last minute for a mini trip to sandbank. The interior decor is clean and modern with dark walls. The bedroom is spacious with one double bed and 2 single beds. Modern shower. The 3 young kids found lots of places to hide and seek in that bedroom....

Fantastic hotel clean and modern. Family room was of an adequate size. It was nice and quiet even though we were surrounded by hotels. Only down side was its more like a 15 minute walk to the beach. Apart from that it was in a good location and would recommend.
