Excellent central location, clean, tidy and well stocked rooms. Parking, Wi-Fi and well presented good choice of breakfast all included at no extra cost. Business stay but would use for pleasure, can't fault it.

We arrived for a three night break and found our room on third floor to be very small but the bathroom was very large and lovely. We were told that we had been put there as hotel can be noisy on Friday nights from nightclub. The duty manager,however relocated us to Room 211 on second floor which was much larger and very comfy,no noise. He offered assistance to move us which we declined. His helpfullness was noted and we very satisfied. The breakfast was fantastic and served by friendly staff. I would like to add that all staff in all areas made our break a very enjoyable one. Thanks to all concered.

Room Tip: Choose 211

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during the Whitsun week. What a lovely break we had. The hotel is in the perfect location just 200 yards from the beach and opposite the BIC, we were on the 2nd floor and the room was fantastic, spotlessly clean with a superb shower in the en-suite. Breakfast, continental or full English (which was freshly cooked to order) set you up for the day. Tommy and his colleagues in the restaurant certainly looked after us during breakfast. Indeed all the staff were helpful and delightful during our stay. The hotel has the added bonus of a free car park, however please note the entrance is slightly tricky off a roundabout but we managed without any issues. Free wi-fi is also provided.

There is a night club attached to the hotel but it never caused us any issues at all during our stay. For evening meals we tended to eat out, there is a Witherspoons pub located 200 yards up towards town which was ok (cheap and cheerful), we also ate in Harry Ramsdens down by the beach which was superb. Other than that there are plenty of place close by to eat out.

The bottom line is would we stay here again ! you bet.

stayed here for one night on 27th may (half term) we paid 65 pound for the night which included breakfast. our room was on the first floor 115 very large room with queen size bed and extra single bed. the room was very clean and bed was comfy, water for bath very hot, being an old hotel its all red and dark wood which does look nice . my only negative is the hotel has very creaky floors especially our bedroom but it is a very old hotel and I suppose that can only be expected,. breakfast was very good and cooked to order there was also good choice of cereal, pastries fruit juices and yoghurts with tea and toast brought to your table. all staff at the hotel where very friendly and helpful, free parking which is a little tight to get into car park. but they even let you keep your car in there past your checkout time which was a big bonus as we wanted to enjoy bournemouth for a few more hours,its location is amazing opposite the BIC, 5 mins walk from palidium and 5 mins from the beach and pier we would defitnely stay here again.

Booked a 2 night midweek break during Easter school holiday through Travelzoo. Great value at £35 per person per night, incl full breakfast and fixed menu 3 course dinner. Very good location, opposite BIC, 5 minutes walk from pier/beach, lower gardens and town centre.
Tricky entrance to car park, immediately by hotel front door and off a quite busy roundabout. Free car parking a definite plus for central Bournemouth. Our 1st floor room was comfortable, clean and plenty big enough for 3. Room facilities all worked well. Hotel had plenty of character, being Victorian, lots of dark wood panelling, impressive staircase, stained glass windows, etc.
Breakfast good, continental items plus full English cooked to order. Dinner was OK, although portions quite small and main course lacked usual vegetables. Extra £3 for a small portion of veg and drinks were relatively expensive too. However not a major problem considering good value of overall deal.
Used small fitness room, which was OK. Staff were all helpful and service was good.
Would recommend, especially at the price we paid.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear, away from busy road, bar and main car park, likely to be quieter
