Stayed here for the weekend of the Bournemouth Air Show and incredibly impressed with the hotel and its lovely staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them ... from sorting out a parking space for us as almost full due to it being the air show weekend (and allowing us to leave our car there the next day after we'd checked out), to putting our little boy's milk in their own fridge and ice packs in their freezer ... the 3 girls we dealt with on reception were amazing, so friendly and helpful. The bar area was lovely and cosy, with huge leather sofas and chairs, perfect for a relaxing drink after a busy day. The rooms we had (19 and 20) were quite large and very comfortable, amazing soft beds and spotlessly clean with large bathrooms (some other reviews state that the rooms and bathrooms were very small, however I can only comment on 19 and 20 as didn't see any others). The hotel is perfectly located for walking down to the beach which less than a 5-10 min walk, and another 5-10 mins to the pier and Oceanarium. Be advised that it's all downhill on the way there, therefore uphill on the way back, but we came back via the Lower Gardens and walked the road way which meant just one short (but steep) hill, and then the rest was flat, so much easier bearing in mind we had elderly parents and a heavy pushchair! Breakfast was good (the only tiny negative I'd have was that the scrambled eggs were like rubber and not made from fresh eggs, rather powdered egg I think), but the rest of the selection was fine and perfectly adequate. We're definitely booking for the Air Show again next year and will probably stay for 2 nights rather than just the one ... would definitely recommend!
