We are just about to check out, and to think we nearly never came because my wife read the negative reviews on here and wanted to give it a miss but I talked her round saying take all reviews on here with a pinch of salt and take a balanced view. So glad she did because we have had a fab weekend ( and timed it well coz it's bucketing down today (bank hol Monday) but we are only travelling home. The hotel is what it says it is, 3* our room was basic but spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel and yes it's in need of a revamp in the stairways etc but I was pleasantly surprised by the public areas as the reception and bar area were very nice. Staff were very helpful and check in was very quick. I booked this hotel as it's pet friendly as we like to take our dog away with us and for £135 for us & £15 for Bonnie. That is a bargain for bank hol weekend in Bournemouth close to the sea (5 min walk if turn past the Hop in pub and take the cable car down). We visited Sandbanks (which is beautiful) swanage & corfe castle all quite close and we visited Stonehenge on the journey down from Wales on Saturday. Would I stay again? If bringing the dog yes but if just 2 of us would stay in something a little grander but if you are looking for just a base like we were then you can't go wrong staying here
