Just returned from our 'last minute' one night stay at The Wyvern Hotel which we only booked the night before. What a gem! We received a very warm welcome from Vicky & Dave who supplied us with drinks and biscuits within 5 mins of us arriving. Although we had no special requests we got the feeling that nothing would have been too much trouble for them.
Our room was comfortable and clean and quiet even though it was located on the ground floor.
There was a generous supply of items on the tea tray in our room (most hotels usually only give you enough milk for 2 cups and we could have had 8!). Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice!
It was a short 10min walk down to Boscombe beach which which had beautiful golden sands. There is also a Harvester restaurant where we went for our evening meal.
Bournemouth Town was approx. 1.5miles up the coast.
Just three really really minor negative points (just because I'm a bit of a compulsive obsessive)... The poor goldfish in reception could do with a cleaner, bigger tank and, there was a vase of flowers on the reception desk that were well past their prime (probably better to have no flowers at all rather than a bunch of dead ones!). Last thing. just me being anal but it's a bugbear of mine ... a piece of paper is provided in the room for you to use at your will .... it has the heading 'Wyvern Stationary'. It's StationEry.
All in all - A lovely place with lovely people. Would definately recommend.
