“An old time favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Visited this hotel for a few years on the weekend before Xmas with around 20 family members. Always good value for money, clean, friendly and great food. We hadn't been back for some 19 years due to family coming along. Then around 4 years ago we returned with our youngest daughter and her boyfriend. It was just the same ! Refurbished but still clean, friendly, value for money and great food. Since then we have bed. Going at least on e a year for a few days at Easter and in October. A few times the whole family have gone. Caters for all ages !

Room Tip: Sea view with balcony !

We stayed here for one night in October as we were going to see Jake Bugg at the BIC, we payed £90 for a triple room, room only rate. The hotel staff seem very good and the swimming pool and spa pool were great, the sauna didn't seem to work though, but it was no big deal. The room was a nice size on floor 2 but very near the lift, which meant during the night every time the lift was called you could hear the annoying pinging sound. The other problems were the creaking floorboards ,which even woke my deep sleeping husband up, anytime anyone walked along the corridor they would creak away loudly. The night we stayed it rained very heavily and in our bathroom there was a skylight and even with the door shut it was an awful noise as the rain hammered down,I have slept in quieter caravans. Then through poor layout another room had their bathroom next to the wall where our bed was ,waking me up when they ran water, I will admit I am a light sleeper but this was to much. I didn't complain but I would not want to stay again

Room Tip: Don't stay on floor 2 or near the lift

Hotel was clean staff friendly but hotel is lacking in quality of the food offered as there is little or no selection for example soup was the same for both day with no other variety on offer, rooms were hot and very small outside pool although not in use was very dirty and the area looked like it has not been maintained for some considerable time, AS a senior manager if my staff were booked in to the hotel I would be disappointed with the conditions of the hotel,

Room Tip: There are many better hotel if you use the websites and the quality of the food would be better in o...

Stayed at this hotel for two nights in October. Got a great price through late rooms which included breakfast. The breakfast was great it had all you needed, including full English,fruit and cereal. My kids went in the indoor pool and free towels were provided. We were able to take our dog which was great and the room had four beds and was very clean and tidy. The location is great just 5 minutes walk to the beach. You can walk to Bournemouth which takes about 25 minutes. Look forward to going back soon.

very friendly helpful staff,apart from the tall blonde barmaid who was more interested in chatting to her friends !! The room was a really good size,with large wardrobe space and plenty of quality wooden hangers.Breakfast was a bit of adissapointment.
Would definitely return as overall it was good

We stayed at the weekend for my mother in laws 80th birthday and had a great time. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. We ate in a private room which was decorated beautifully. The soup was great but the beef a bit tough & dry.
It was decorated and upgraded from the last time we stayed. The games room and pool are great for the kids.
We will return.

I have stayed at this hotel 5 times within the past couple of years and it's been consistently good. it's a warm, friendly place, totally geared up to children and families during the summer holidays but sophisticated and suitable for all types of guests throughout the year. The rooms are very comfortable, nicely decorated with a high standard of furniture and beds. There's an inside and outside pool and it's only a few minutes walk to the lovely beach at Alum Chine. The restaurant is beautiful, up high and overlooking the sea, with excellent food. I liked it so much the first time I stayed that I've just kept going back.

Room Tip: The hotel has up to 4 bedded rooms and some have balconies, overlooking the sea. All the rooms I ha...
