On arrival we were greeted by Val who was expecting us. She made us feel really welcome and settled us in our room very quickly. The room was massive and had great decoration, all with a beach theme. There were two large armchairs, large bed and a desk area which had the tea and coffee on it. There was a small en-suite too, so we had everything we needed.
The tea and coffee tray was well stocked and even came with cafetieres (with special coffee pouches). A good selection of toiletries were provided too.
The only improvement we could suggest for the room would be to have a proper door to the ensuite. There was a sliding door in place which didn't offer 100% privacy.
Breakfast was made for us to order and was extensive! There was a choice of cereal and fresh fruit as well as the hot option and unlimited toast! The cooked breakfast things we had were very tasty and had good quality ingredients.
It had a great location, and is easily walkable to the beach and town centre. There is plenty of parking along the road or a small car park is available at the back.
If we visit Bournemouth again we would definitely return here. A great find, and great value for money.
