I have to say that I was a little speculative about the hotel purely based on some of the reviews on trip advisor, I was however very pleasantly surprised. We stayed two nights in a double room with a sea view and booked via lastminute.com. We got a great deal and I must say that the hotel was great but I would never pay the base price of I think the nights we stayed which would have been £200 per night.
We stayed in room 17, which was actually 2 twins pushed together, but not really that big a deal because it was comfy and meant more room. The room was a good size, the sea view was a nice bonus. I believe that the hotel was exactly as described and looked like the photos that are online. The restaurant was great value for money and quaint. The place was what I would describe as quite qwerky and had some nice character.
I saw some reviews of the place being too cold which is not the case, in fact we had to have the window open at some points because even after turning off the radiator it was too warm.
The only negatives that I could really be picky about is because it is quite an old place.. the floor boards from the room above kept squeaking, the walls were also quite thin (suggest being on the 2nd floor of you are a soft sleeper) we could hear someone snoring during the night!
All in all I would definitely go back again, I really enjoyed Bournemouth and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
We paid £166 for 2 nights for future reference.
