National coach holidays use this hotel as one of three in bournemouth. The hotel is a family run hotel, with comfortable rooms.The food is excellent. We enjoyed the holiday. The downside is this hotel is out of the way in Boscombe.You can get a land train (£2.20 each way ) from Boscombe pier along the lower cliff road (very senic) between 10 and 5 during the day (for those more energetic walkers a 20min strole along the sea front gets you into bournemouth and theres a cliff lift akin to Scarborough,s at the Bournemouth end. Beware those who are not too good walking as its a steep hill from the hotel down to Boscombe pier.For those with bus passes or not a 7min flat walk to Boscombe shopping centre gets you a regular bus service. Entertainment in the hotel is low key with nothing on a wednesday night.. Bournemouth is a top class resort. Hope this is useful to you NH coach trippers!
