Stayed Monday - Thurs, very good hotel, friendly and approachable staff, the bedroom staff did a great job making up the room (thank you) the breakfast was very good, well presented and more importantly Hot. Would certainly stay again when in the area, one little negative was the lack of car parking facilities, that said the 3 days we were there we got a spot.

Short break for my wife’s birthday, weather was good so able to see Bournemouth kat it’s best. This is a good hotel, quiet location but only a short walk to the beach and the park. Food was good, service was friendly and efficient. Didn’t have time to try the spa facilities but they did look very good. Would recommend this hotel to couples needing to “recharge” the batteries, nice relaxing break.

Thank you for your review MastG. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the cliff top and there is a choice of the zigzap steps or a lift which takes you straight to the beachfront. Our car parks is one of the largest in Bournemouth and unlike most of our competitors is still free of charge to our guests. I hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back again soon.

As the title indicates we have stayed many times before, some times 3 or 4 days others like this one for the night. We were going to a concert at the BIC on the Sunday so ate out on this occasion but can recommend Blakes or Brasserie for their food offering. Breakfast is a good choice and when busy as it was Sunday am there is overflow seating in the Brasserie. A lot of people use the Spa so dont be surprised to see them sitting in the Brasserie in their dressing gown sipping Prosecco at lunchtime! We will return at some stage Im sure.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony to give you the option of sitting out.
