We stayed here over Easter weekend as we were going to a party 5 mins walk away. A friend booked it and when I checked the reviews on TA I was bracing myself for a rough and ready B&B with typical stag / hen type goings on!
We arrived in the reception (which is actually in the bar showing football on big screens), the bar lady / receptionist was very friendly and polite and pointed us the right direction then a friendly cleaner told us where out room was.
I was pleasantly surprised with the room. It was a decent size for a budget hotel in a popular destination and everything was in working order and clean etc. The bed was big and comfortable.
We came back from our party at about 3.30am and if there were any stags/hens they must have passed out by now because it was nice and quiet! I would recommend taking an eye mask as the blinds let in the light in the morning.
We had a good breakfast of eggs / bacon etc, coffee juice and again the waiter was polite and friendly.
I would recommend this hotel is you need a budget base in Bournemouth.
