We stayed from the 14th Feb until the 16th. We had booked a double room with a sea view. On arrival the hotel looked decent and fairly clean, but with the weather we had had that week maybe it was a bit more dishevelled than normal. On being allocated our room we got into the lift which can not accommodate more than 2 people without getting to close. The room had a sea view and could see the pier however water was leaking thro the window onto the floor where towels had been place to soak up said water. After being shown several other rooms of lesser standard or offered our money back to try another hotel we stuck it out, with more towels in case.
The rooms are basic and in need of updating but were (apart from window, which was down to severe weather conditions), clean and comfortable.
The food that was served we ate in the bar was nice and have no complaints and Juan the barman looked after us very well. Breakfast was served in the restaurant, buffet style and was acceptable the first morning we had almost finished our breakfast before tea and toast arrived.
Overall a clean hotel in excellent position right by the sea front and would be worth putting on your short list for a stay in Bournemouth. Would we stay there again, only possibly but that is more to do with the amount of hotels to chose from in that area and change is good as.
