“A good weekend break”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

9 Redhatter friends spent a lovely weekend at this hotel. Staff were great. Bedroom was comfortable and so were lounge areas and gardens. Walked to town and beach about 10 - 15 minutes. Would stay again,

Stayed for 1 night in the Lodge building next door, good size comfy bed. Good breakfast nice choice of different foods. Fairly small Spa and gym which was underground, fairly busy which was a put off. Overall would recommend this place for short stays, any longer would be bored in the hotel. Professional staff very efficient.

This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing time away, it is beautifully decorated with modern bedrooms, spa and pool. But what makes this hotel so excellent is the wonderful service of the staff from reception to Peter at the breakfast bar, very professional and delightful, an asset to the hotel. I cant wait for my next visit to Bournemouth and I will surely be telling my family, friends and work colleagues about my memorable experience, Thank you.

What we liked most about this hotel was the staff and especially the staff in the breakfast room, they were so nice, so efficient and so helpful. Nothing seemed to be any trouble for them and we looked forward every morning to sit down and have breakfast. (Also the other members of the staff were very nice but we did not have so much contact with them!) The food of the breakfast was delicious and especially the hot buffe.
The room in the lodge was rather average and the beds were a bit firm for our tast. The room was perfectly clean. When we asked for an extra pillow and a better fan in the room (there was something wrong with the first fan) it was immediately seen to.
The location of the hotel is very good with walking distance to the beach and to the centre of the town.

i absolotely love this place as......
The food is splendid ,dinner, lunch and breakfast. Breakfast offers you the simple home breakfasts aswell as fruit, yogurt , great drinks, the full english and loads more.The town is great as you can sleep in the room, have breakfast, maybe have a dip in the pool and then pop into town. You could go to the beach/pier, the cinema, the shops and loads more.The pool is lovely as theres a great jucusi, steam room and sauna. Theres also spa treatments which are lovely.The fitness suite is terrific.The rooms are clean and well looked after which is really great. the only thing I would improve is the no diving rue in the pool as its good fun

Room Tip: I had a famly room with aq bunk bed and a double bed. Lovely.

We stayed here as a family, two double rooms and a twin room, celebrating Anniversary's and Birthday. The rooms were spotless and extremely comfortable. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Breakfast was fabulous, providing everything we needed included a gluten free alternative with no bother at all. The gym had quite old equipment compared to what we are used to at home but not a problem, the pool was enjoyable but a bit cold! The location is perfect for walking to the beach and to the town centre. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We had three rooms in three different locations of the lodge, none of which were noisy or caused pro...

Thank you very much Carnivale for your "Excellent" review and delighted all the celebrations were such a success - hopefully we'll see you all again next year. Apologies about the pool which is normally kept at 29.5C - I don't know what the problem was but it's all ok now!!
