Surprised by the previous review. I stayed here with my husband and friends, we had no complaints. We were actually pleasantly surprised by the size and cleanliness of our room for what we paid and the ensuite also a good size. Was nice to see they provide shampoo, coffee and biscuits as don't even get this at some more expensive hotels.
We stayed at the front of the hotel so could here a bit of traffic noise. nothing too bad, our friends stayed at the back which was nice and quiet.
We got the train down which was conveniently outside the hotel and they have a car park that our friends used. It's in a good location between Poole and Bournemouth so we could easily get into Bournemouth town centre one night and drove to Sandbanks beach the following morning.
We booked breakfast for both days, glad we did as it was very good.
This is a small hotel that I would recommend. If you are expecting an immaculate hotel then go to one of the chains, if you just want a clean room at a good price then come here.
