This is not the average Premier hotel. It is a refurbished art deco hotel, with balconies to some rooms. We had a sea view room, with wall to wall windows. The room also contained a wardrobe and drawers (although the furniture had seen better days)! The bathroom was tastefully recently refurbished, although on the small side.
We had the meal deal on four nights - the food quality and quantity was excellent, and very good value. However, the service at dinner was rather slow if there were more than a dozen customers.
We found all the staff to be polite, helpful and friendly. I wouldn't like to mention names, as it depended who was on duty at any particular time.
Car parking charges seem high around Bournemouth. The multi storey car park at the back of the hotel has a lift which takes you into the hotel reception area at a cost of £10 per 24 hours.
The hotel is very well placed for most amenities - the pier, the beach, the gardens, the cinema and the buses were all only a few minutes away, and the Pavilion theatre is just over the road.
The downside to our stay was the fact that for the six days we were there only one of the two lifts was working. As there are 8 floors to the hotel there were constant queues at the lift, which meant a long wait to go up or down, or a long trek using the stairs.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.
