“Great Week's Holiday.”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

We were made comfortable and well looked after, by pleasant and willing staff. The food at dinner was first-rate by Bournemouth standards, and breakfast was more than adequate. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to our friends. I would just advise them when booking to inquire about room size; we were rather squashed in ours, though I understand most of the rooms are quite spacious. I would have liked to see some better hand-grips for shower-in-bath users.

Room Tip: Make sure you know the room size

The welcome was friendly, the hospitality superb and the bed was so good I slept right through breakfast! Recommended.
Did not see the swimming pool or fitness centre, as the hotel was a base to explore the Dorset coast and National Trust properties in the area.

Room Tip: Sea view, worth it.

never been to bournemouth before and although knew the hotel was near the front, didnt realise how near and the lovely public gardens adjacent. nice surprise.
Was a bit annoyed to get woken before 9am on the Sunday morning due to activity on the sea front (loud speakers) but that wasnt the hotel's doing. Sea view room was far enough back from main road not to be bothered with traffic noise.
location - excellent for conference centre, beach, town
service - Charles in the restaurant for our breakfast and evening meal is excellent and very efficient. Noticeable (slight) drop in service when he wasnt there (asking for something and waitresses forgetting/not bringing at all, breakfast items running out or low but nothing major)
food - good dining and quality
rooms - nice size, sea view, clean
weather - hot and sunny from Sat to Thursday, then a bit of rain on friday but was going then.
would have been nice to have had pool on site but you cant have everything.
Would definitely stay again - all of us (was with party of 10)

Location:

I did not realise on booking this hotel that it was so close to the conference centre.It is literally across the road and very handy for the beach too.
Just behind it is a park and after that is the city centre.

Property

Though an old building it looked recently renovated and furnished well.
There are few parking spaces in front with first come basis. There is on ongoing work in front of the hotel.

Reception
Friendly and helpful staff
Not a big area.But I suspect this is the case with many other hotels in this area which are built long time ago.

Room
I got a sea view room for an extra few pounds which was worth it.Though there is no full view of the sea which is obstructed slightly by some buildings.There is no balcony but a full length window with table and chair close to it nearly made up for that.
There is no air conditioning and a small fan is provided which during summer with not much breeze might be a problem.Room size is good.Toilets are clean and spacious.

Food
Only had breakfast there but it was good with table service and a welcoming host.
There is a bar which was well stocked and appeared to be of good standard.

Leisure
No pool.I am not sure about a gym.


All in all,a nice hotel.
If I am visiting Bournemouth again especially for a conference,I will be staying here

Room Tip: Go for the sea view room.It is worth it.

This hotel is well-run with friendly and attentive staff. I do however think that guests should be warned when a conference is going to have a loud band playing until one o'clock in the morning. I think that other guests should be accommodated on higher floors and/or be given a discount.

Room Tip: Ask if there is a conference or other large group booked who will be having a late night dance when...

Stayed here for a conference over at BIC. The room was fantastic even though it looked out over the back yard/kitchens. Room was very comfortable. Had to change room for the last night due to booking, 2nd room was also lovely however the shower over flowed nearly to the door and you had to fiddle with the ballcock to stop the toilet from flushing. Even so would still stay there again.
