Fancied a trip with the family down to the Bournemouth Coast, so we took our chances on the Ocean View.
Family room was booked for two nights and upon arrival we were met by the very friendly and accommodating staff. Parked our wagon in the small car park and headed to the room.
The lift was straight out of a 1960's spy movie, much to the delight of Junior. The room on the third floor was decent size but with a TV smaller than a laptop monitor. Never mind, we're not in town to watch the half a dozen channels it has. Our double bed was actually two singles put together and was actually very comfortable. Floor was creaky, wallpaper needed a bit of attention but it all added to the charm.
The view however was superb. Clear, uninterrupted vista of the horizon.
Junior was taken by the small but adequate outdoor pool which was being used by a number of families making the most of the fading sun.
If it wasn't for a wedding in the hotel next door on the first night, it would have been extremely quiet. Good nights sleep by all parties!
Breakfast time and the fare on offer was just what the doctor didn't order! Proper full English buffet for the hard core but a decent continental selection for those lacking conviction.
Overall, we had a great break and left the Ocean View relaxed and rejuvenated.
