Reviewed 9 June 2012

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.

We stayed for two days in early June. Room was functional but the bathroom was good with a great shower.
It did remind me of having college dinners but it was ok.
Slightly over priced for what you get but I guess it was jubilee weekend.

Walking down hill to the beach is lovely, however the walk back at the end of the day can be pretty hard, the downside of a seaside town, I am glad you enjoyed the hotel and your stay.

Stayed one night, clean room, good shower but lacks any atmosphere, bit like a slightly upmarket travel lodge.
Breakfast ok, shortage of staff so tables in need of clearing, one very hard working waitress doing almost everything. Very large hotel and impersonal really.

Our hotel can sometimes seem impersonal if there isnt anyone in our hub area to give it the atmosphere which most people enjoy and I am sorry you had this experience.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my teenage daughter recently on a coach trip to Monkey World. Room was clean and comfortable. Air con was a blessing as the weather got really warm. Beds were comfy and a good size. Bathroom was a good size with a very good walk in shower and towels were soft and fluffy (just how I like them). Hair dryer, iron and ironing board are in the room along with a kettle and tea/coffee etc. Not a lot of hanging space or drawer space so only good for a short stay but they do offer same day laundry facilities at reasonable prices (price list is in the room). Staff were polite, friendly and helpful and the overall atmosphere of the hotel was nice. The hot/cold all you can eat buffet breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choice. As I was on a package with a coach company our evening meal was included but we were very disappointed with the quality of the food and chose not eat there on the second night. I would stay there again but I would be wary of the evening meal if I were on a package again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights for the Bank Holiday weekend. The hotel was good value and is in an excellent location, within walking distance of the beach and the town centre.

Our room was large and spacious, with tea and coffee making facilities. The room itself was immaculate, and the large double bed was very comfortable.

The bathroom was also immaculate, with plenty of towels provided.

We did not eat breakfast at the hotel but we did order room service one evening which arrived promptly and was really tasty.

There is plenty of free parking which is really useful.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here in june 2010 and loved it. It was a simple hotel but had everything we needed including air con and the room
And bathroom was spotless! Loved the walk in shower and the water pressure was great. Really comfy bed and we were made to feel very welcome. The breakfast was included in the price so we took full advantage! There was so much and all if it was great! We werent far from anything and parking was easy too! Would stay here again for sure!
