Stayed in this Hotel for one night when visiting Bournemouth to see a show at the BIC. We wanted a hotel within walking distance of the venue and we weren't disappointed - took us about an 8 minute stroll although, like many seaside towns, the route is hilly!
We checked in easily enough (however, I did think they couldn't find our booking at first). I mentioned that we were parked in the car park and was asked to enter our car reg into the database so that we didn't receive a ticket. Not many hotels in Bournemouth have free car parks so this was one advantage.
The room was ideal for our needs - perhaps a little tired but we didn't really care. The bathroom was efficient and the water in the bathroom was lovely and hot. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and, although not really required, the A/C was efficient (we were there on the stormiest few days of the year!!). Our 2nd floor room faced the busy main road but you would not know it - the sound proofing was excellent!
On return from the BIC, the bar was still open and soon filled up with other people who had been to see the show. Some people had food which needed to be charged to your room after 10.30. Bar prices on a par with a good pub! Tea and coffee available in the room.
Breakfast was included in the tariff and was plentiful - I would say better than other hotel chains where you have to pay extra! Coffee was delicious and plenty of choice of hot and cold dishes.
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a one or two night visit to Bournemouth.
