“Good for the money”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

Arrived last night at the hotel for an overnight stop ahead of a meeting with work.

For £19.50 what more can you expect? The room was clean and tidy and the service was great on arrival.

Other visitors are quite loud throughout the night but I suppose the hotel can't stop that.

Overall a pleasant stay and worth the money.

I stayed at this hotel as part of my hen night in Bournemouth. After reading other reviews on trip advisor I was really worried but when I arrived I pleasantly surprised!
The room was clean and spacious and had everything that we needed. We were only using it for somewhere to get ready and then sleep so it was perfect for our needs.
The location is also good as is not too far a walk from everything. Breakfast was included and we were given vouchers as this was at a pub around the corner. The breakfast was actually really nice!
Would reccomend staying here if you just need a cheap room to stay in.

I only stayed here overnight and booked the room through laterooms.com.
I have to say I wasn't expecting much as I paid so little but the room was lovely. The hotel is a dated and the carpets could do with a bit of a shampoo but you can overlook that as the room was clean and the bed very comfy.
The hotel owner/manager? was really nice. Friendly and happy to help.
Give it a whirl.. see what you think x

I stayed at this so called hotel with my family. If I had not paid upfront before being handed the key I would have driven to another hotel whatever the cost. On opening the door of our room it was so small the carpet was filthy, the plug socket near the table lamp was hanging off the wall. In the bathroom the toilet seat was hanging off and we were provided with one towel that bearly fitted round your body. The toilet window didnt even shut so there was a safety issue at night and during the day. At night it was rowdy as people were laughing and shouting at the top of their voices and banging doors. Overall I have to say I was glad to get out of there and come home.

Room Tip: I cannot see there being one

7 of us booked a room for one night for a work night out, after reading tripadvisor comments we were all a bit worried about the night but we were massively impressed with everything exactly what you pay for! Would defiantly return... Infact we are already planning it!!

I stayed in this hotel last night and found it not be as bad as I expected. Yes it's not amazing but for the price you can't go wrong. Convenient location, Powerful shower, Comfy bed, Spacious, tea and coffee making facilities and hd tv. Cheap and cheerful! The stains on the carpet are not too much to grumble about. If you want a cheap trip to the seaside it's perfect! Also free parking is within walking distance.

The pictures are of how the place once looked MANY, MANY years ago. Room 6 made smaller with use of petition wall for Room 5. Filthy carpets, ill-fitting curtains (no nets or blinds), no blinds on bathroom window (slightly frosted glass, but you are still visable from the outside).
Apart from two single beds imitating a double bed and a single bed (two feet away) pushed up against the bay window and a small table for kettle and cups, none of the advertised furnishings existed.

Bar was constantly used as a laundry room (steam pressing sheets).

Advert implies price is Bed & Breakfast per room. Confirmation email says food not included. Payment demanded on arrival.

Room Tip: Unless you are backpacking, this ?Hotel/B&B/??????? is ok. Booked through Booking.com, on infor...
