I stayed here on a Saturday and Sunday night with my husband while attending a family funeral in Bournemouth.
We stayed in a standard double. The bed was comfortable and they came with amenities you'd expect - tv, hair dryer, iron etc. the room was fine, if a little dated in decor, the sofa for example had a few stains on it.
I do think however for what we paid (£60 per room per night) that the other amenities in the hotel meant this was excellent value for a Bournemouth break. The pool and leisure facilities were first rate, there's a Starbucks on site and also the hotel bar was good too. We ate in both of these and enjoyed the food, drinks prices were reasonable for a hotel.
We only attempted breakfast on the Sunday morning, I think we must've timed it wrong and hit peak time so it was incredibly busy and the food quality suffered due to this.
I must add that I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff - in particular a maid who helped me into my room on the 4th floor when I couldn't get my key to work.
Location-wise there was lots of parking and it is easy to find given it's directly opposite the a&e department of the hospital - follow the hospital signs. (I did think the fact this was the view from our room slightly unfortunate given the reason we were staying in the area.)
