I have to start by saying that my personal experience of this hotel was good. The breakfast was great, the hotel was well decorated, bar area is stylish with jazz fusion background music, and my room was well set out, clean and comfortable. The hotel could do with some minor work to the exterior, but the location is perfect, just a few steps from the beach and local amenities. There are only a few niggles that I have to mention, such as twice the bedding had a few dirt patches, the wifi signal in my room was shocking all week, and the lift doesn't feel the safest when more than two people enter. Overall though the weeks stay was good and I would definitely stay here again when I am next in Bournemouth.
However, I was here on business with a couple of colleagues who's experience was not as good as mine. It appears that some of the rooms, including my own, have had a major facelift, leaving the rest very outdated, and in some cases, should not be available. One of these rooms had a broken electric heated radiator that was very dangerous, the other had a strong smell of mould and the windows were so full of condensation that it was impossible to see out of. These rooms were small, very dirty, in desperate need of a revamp, and as stated in one case, quite dangerous.
To summarise, all I can really say is that this hotel is good value for money, in a great location and everything I look for when travelling on business. I would advise that you go for a room on either the first or second floor however as you may feel you have pulled the short straw!
