“A Week Away From Home”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Travelling alone for a week is bad enough, however when arriving at the hotel the staff we so helpful, i was made to feel very welcome from the minute i walked in through the door until the day i checked out.

The room was clean and tidy and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities, and free wifi everywhere no just in some areas like most hotels.

Great breakfast, secure parking facilities and 5 minutes walk to the town what else could you want from a hotel.

Will be staying again soon.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room always clean and tidy.

We headed to Bournemouth, for a gig at the BIC, this hotel is just over the road. The rooms are very clean, and comfortable. With tea and coffee making facilities. They have a cocktail bar and restaurant within the hotel, and minutes from the main town, secure parking, we could see the Sea from our room, would defiantly stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor, room 305, and could see the Sea.

I love this hotel... Great vibe, great bar, great rooms and the staff give a warm welcome. Breakfast is always excellent and will accommodate individual tastes just ask. The bar is super Kool with the best cocktail menu money can buy. So if you need a pad to stay on business or pleasure then drop in to this place, if you stay on a weekday then you can pop down stairs for salsa lessons in the hotel club ... Awesome

What more can I say, for a night or two in Bournemouth this is perfect. Great spot, free parking - as public parking is going to be expensive from 1st January, and a fab breakfast. Check in always really good and rooms clean, tidy with comfortable beds. Always look forward to coming here and have done for the last seven years or so.

Stayed for two nights to be near conference centre which is directly opposite.
Hotel itself was clean but quite tired looking. Modern bar and entrance contrasts with dated bedrooms and very dated bathrooms.
Staff very friendly.
Bar closed early for a hotel with only a very limited night porterage service available.

My husband and I stayed here during the weekend towards the end of October when the bad weather was forecast. The receptionist suggested that we move down from the third floor so that we would be comfortable incase of bad weather.

We stayed in a bigger room on the first floor .. Great! This attitude was reflected in the whole ethos of the hotel... everyone was most pleasant and the breakfasts were excellent with lots of choice.
Once the car was in the car park we left it there and enjoyed our stay even though the weather was not ideal. We would definately stay there again.
