This hotel benefited from a gym and swimming pool, which is great when working away. Breakfast was pretty good also - the adjoining restaurant had good reviews, but didn't have a Chance to sample this.

Located centrally within walking distance of the city centre. The rooms were clean, perhaps a little small, but well appointed nonetheless.

Would return when in Bournemouth again.

Lovely clean rooms, helpful friendly staff, brilliant breakfast. Great location for town,beach or BIC. Already booked a return visit. Used their leisure suite whilst we were there and had a treatment; which was fabulous.

A brilliantly run hotel where the staff are hugely attentive and helpful.
Very good restaurant though breakfast fruit offering could be better .If you do not eat prunes or grapefruit bit limited .Melon/Fruit salad for example and dinner menu get get a bit repetitive Bar areas a bit cold and some rooms can be noisy with thinnish walls

Many thanks for the "Great Place" review Castlewatcher. Do try Blakes on your next visit - the menu has three items rotated on a daily basis but there is also the Brasserie with an extensive "every day" menu.

Best wishes for Christmas and 2014

What a find ! So convenient for shops and sea front . The hotel is very comfortable the breakfast was great with a lot of choice . The hotel looks as if it has very recently had a face lift and is very clean and modern. The one thing that stood out for us , was the great staff who were so attentive to make our stay the best we have ever had in bournemouth. You can eat in the very good hotel restaurant but there are also several others around for a change, in particular a small Italian around the corner called Amalfi fantastic !

Good hotel.

Smallish car park but as arrived at 1pm for 3pm check in, did park no problem. In the morning my car was blocked in due to double parking, went to reception and they had the car keys and was moved by a member of staff straight away. I thought a good way to handle a car park when full.

10 minute walk to BICC.

Spa/pool very good and you are given towels at the Spa reception so no need to bring your own. Pool, jacuzzi, steam and sauna room.

Breakfast fine, as expected. Very friendly staff.

Was a bit noisy on the Saturday night as parties but music was turned off at midnight. I would be wary if a light sleeper, maybe check before booking if events on.

Room tidy, clean, shower (no bath), TV, coffee/tea facilities.

I would add not the kind of place to have stag parties.

All in all, a very good stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at front over look bar/events room so best avoid unless going to a party/wedding.

Thank you for your "Good Hotel" review James and pleased to read you enjoyed your stay with us. December in Bournemouth is Christmas party month so restaurants and hotels in particular are busy at weekends - just to confirm your point we do not entertain stag and hen parties.

Best wishes for Christmas and 2014
