I paid £85 for bed and breakfast, and consider it to be very poor value for money. The interior is shabby , and the bedrooms small and in need of refurbishment. The dining room is big and impersonal, and quite scruffy. Breakfast is poor. The bacon tasted very strange, and tinned fruit was served. We had to park in a car park a few minutes away, as the hotel car park is very small, and had to pay £3 for the privilege. TVs in the room are very old fashioned with only a few channels. I am used to staying in Holiday Inn hotels (in this price bracket) , which are not exactly full of character, but at least have new interiors up to date TVs and good quality breakfasts.
One final thing, I tried three times to call reception, and was kept waiting for several minutes. In the end I had to hang up and try several times more.
The one good thing to say is that the hotel is in quite a good location. The sea front is a couple of minutes away and there are a number of restaurants in walking distance, essential in Bournemouth as parking is such nightmare.
