Pleasant Hotel within walking distance of Town.

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Location: Close to the Beach and Restaurants in Town.
The staff were friendly and the room was clean and tidy. Everything was within walking distance from the Hotel and only a short Taxi ride to the Train/Bus Station. Being an old style Hotel it had floor boards that squeaked every time someone walked past my room but other than this I enjoyed my stay. Even without air-conditioning I did not find it to hot at night in summer but it was uncomfortable during the day.

Bournemouth

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: Restaurant was very good and they had a nice separate more casual lounge and bar area.
Location: The hotel is right off the sea so easy walking to the boardwalk and the ocean.
Very nice hotel right of the sea. Stayed one night and enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Great location and the hotel is very secure.

My only criticism is that climate control only existed in the reception area. The room itself was a big hot, even with the windows open. The description needs to be changed on the hotels.com site as it is misleading.

Location was good, close to both town and beach

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Breakfast was ok. Room wasn't too small. There was a bath. Pretty much what I'd expected.
Location: Pub called Inferno nearby has really good, sensibly priced food. Try the burger and sweet potato fries. Avoid the nearby slummy karaoke pub.
Location was good, close to both town and beach and to my conference venue.

Warm service and friendly staff

The hotel has a nice old world charm to it. Warm service and friendly staff. Overall I would rate it 7/10 as it could do better with renovation specially the creaky flooring.

Good location, close to centre & beside East Cliff

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Car parking on site, valuable from a security perspective. Quite location with lively action down town if you want it.Plenty of down town restauraunts
Cons: Very small lift/ elevator can be a challenge. Control for shower unit in bathroom was a mystery in itself.
Location: Already covered & commented upon.
Staff, from reception to management, extremely helpful. Good value breakfast. Clean room.
