“Sister's 50th Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

My sister had a booked a function room for a 50th Birthday meal. The hotel were very accommodating and reserved parking for 4 x 4 as to tall for the underground parking.

Meal was excellent and service was great. My sister had a lovely time. I stayed overnight in one of their double rooms. The room was lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable. The only down side was a very noisy stag party had booked in and had the rooms next to and opposite mine. When they arrived back at 1.30 am and 3.30 am shouting, singing and banging about made a very disturbed sleep. However, when I explained to the hotel, they refunded my parking and apologised. I understand these circumstances cannot be helped. Did not stop me enjoying the splendor of the hotel and the fabulous breakfast in the morning. Would definiately recommend a stay there. Staff are so polite and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Commercial Road would be quieter. This is busy at night due to the nightclubs, bars...

Absolutely wonderful,we treated my mum and a family friend on Sunday Afternoon to a scrummy tea and the scones hot out of the oven with a very good portion of clotted cream. Staff were great nothing was to much trouble, changed sandwiches (we don't like smoked salmon) different drinks for all, checked on to make sure we were happy, will look forward to going again.

We have stayed here on numerous occasions, The Deluxe rooms are superb, the staff caring and helpful if you have any requests & the food very good .
The location just perfect, leave your car underneath in the hotel car park & it is just a one minute stroll to the Town center...........only sad part is that you pay £13.00 per night for the privilege.
but we will be back.

Room Tip: deluxe are better than the executive

Booked this hotel for a girlie weekend away and we were not disappointed. Our room was spacious, clean and had a wonderful covered balcony, which we took full advantage of as it was the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine. The staff were fantastic - very friendly, helpful, polite and attentive. We ate dinner and breakfast in the hotel and have no complaints about either as the food was tasty and plentiful. The location of this hotel is great for shopping and the beach. Would have no hesitation about returning to this hotel and hope to do so in the near future.

Stayed at the hotel 9th - 11th May found the hotel quite shabby for a 4 star rating, small bar area (had trouble booking drinks to our room bill), room shower had no pressure at all, hence showering very difficult. 1 small lift to all rooms meant waiting several minutes, underground car park nightly rates very expensive & no other parking options available other than public car park 100 meters away. On the occasion we stayed both nights were rather windy and the bedroom windows rattle in the wind. On the plus side staff were quite friendly, food good especially the breakfast, & very central to all amenities of Bournemouth.
