Stayed here with the other half for a short break at the end of July. The hotel itself was only a short walk from the pier and the beach...probably about a 10-15 minute walk...although be careful of the busy roads in Bournemouth! Room was comfortable and although there was a function on when we stayed we did not hear any noise. Breakfast good....plenty of selection, full english, pasties, cereal etc and the staff were particularly friendly at breakfast.
All in all would stay here again should we re-visit Bournemouth in the future.
Just a couple of tips about the town of Bournemouth....it's a lovely place but you will need to book in advance for most restaurants! We did not know this and constantly got turned away from places....not a problem for us... but could be a problem for families with small children!
