We stayed at this hotel because we were attending a Wedding in Bournemouth and it was fairly close to the venue. We found the hotel to be very good indeed. On arrival the car park was pretty much full, probably due to the fact that the airshow was on. However one of the managers offered for us to use the disabled parking as long as we were prepared to move the car if someone needed the disabled space. The room was lovely. Not the biggest room I have ever stayed in but certain adequate. However the fact that the room had a balcony totally took away any problem with the size of the room. We sat on the balcony to have drinks and were lucky enough to see the Red Arrows, so all in all it was perfect.
The room was very clean to a standard you don't often see in hotels. The location is good and we were able to walk to find a restaurant for dinner, although I believe the restaurant at the hotel is also very good. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We would definitely stay at this hotel again when we are in Bournemouth.
