Arrived at the hotel and was greeted by the receptionist / manager.
I travel on business a lot and of course all my hotels are prebooked before I arrive by my office.
I was in fear that I would not have been able to stay as I did not have the card originally booked and paid for even though I had all the confirmation emails etc.
This has never happened in my whole time travelling around for work.
Eventually after whipping out documents with my work address on I was allowed to stay.
I was also advised that if I was going out it would be best to be back before 12am as I would have been locked out over night- not that I had any intention of staying out past 11 on a Thursday night but feel these terms should be stipulated when booking as I have been to Bournemouth before and would of been severely dissapointed if I had time restrictions whilst on holiday.
Room was pokey and small and the blind kept bashing against the radiator every time the bed moved.
Shower fluctuated in temperature and also pressure making the experience very uncomfortable.
Used condom on roof outside window
Have asked my office to never book over night stays here again.
