Just returned home after a delightful 3 day stay at this hotel which should be classed as a 4 star not three . Having travelled all over the world my wife and I were a little apprehensive about booking this special offer DBB stay through Travel zoo and on arrival as has been mentioned before on Trip advisor the outside of the hotel looks rather run down but once you enter the lobby things change for the better . The staff and management set the tone for what is a very well run hotel which offers exceptional service , good clean rooms ,good food and a great location . Special mention should made of the way the manager on duty on our arrival Martin Taylor answered all our queries with charm and efficiency and Alex the restaurant and duty manager used his 25 years of experience in the trade by providing a well run and efficient restaurant service . The standard dinner menu was a little restrictive particularly for someone who is a non red meat eater but both my wife and I were informed that we could either eat from the bar menu or have the chef prepare a special meal at no extra charge . The Hotel which was originally built in the 1870's and the first Hotel in Boscome is a perfect location for access via it's delightful garden to the new beach complex which includes a new surf machine ( being repaired during our visit ) and it is possible to walk for up to 5 miles along the beach to Bournemouth or Sandbanks in the west and Christchurch in the east .
We will definitely be visiting this hotel again and would highly recommend the hotel not only as a holiday location for people of all ages but also for business travellers and conferences. Although we did not use any of the spa facilities the hotel offers a swimming pool both outdoors and indoors , a sauna , and fully set up exercise room .
