We were forced to book a last minute overnight stay in Bournemouth and we didn't want to spend silly money when we were there for such a short stay and out before 7am in the morning. I wasn't very optimistic and just hoped for clean. What we got was a very warm welcome from a team of young staff (a lot I suspect were students from the university). They were enthusiastic and helpful and quite at odds with the very average surroundings. The bar facilities were made available at all times and, although we didn't use the facility, it seemed well attended by others if a little over bright (more ambient lighting perhaps???) They couldn't guarantee the parking but were full of helpful alternative parking advice.
The beds were clean and comfortable, the room clean and the towels clean but a bit threadbare. The bathroom not so clean and the shower curtain was trailing in the bath and a bit of a trip hazard.
The room was very hot but the window did open which is more than we have experienced in more expensive establishments. I did see someone asking for a fan in the Reception and this was produced with a smile by the staff so there was that option.
So, only down points were ....... the door paint work which was very close to the toilet had some very ominous brown stains and the plug in the sink could have done with some serious bleaching. Also, the kettle was black on the outside! A wipe with a cloth would have made all the difference.
However, we paid such a small sum for the room I think it was excellent value for money and I am sure if I had brought these problems out to the staff they would have dealt with them with a smile.
Oh, they also arranged for breakfast to be laid on extra early as they knew most of the guests would have to be out before 8 am for the function!
