Creaky but clean.

A typical slightly dated Bournemouth seafront hotel but spotlessly clean throughout & very attentive staff.

Not what it seems from the outside

Posted Oct 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is well past time for a refurbishment, alternatively knocking down and starting again!! The room was small with a bed that complained when you looked at it, the bathroom was almost clean and tidy, the exception being the rusty soap holder. Overall not worth the price we paid, better find a b&b for better service and comfort

Good hotel on the seafront, with an outdoor pool.

Posted Aug 26, 2013
Pros: Location - on the seafront. Quiet location - not in the centre of town so nice and quiet at night.
Cons: Very minor - sink in the bathroom had a glass shelf about 6 inches above it, which made it almost un-usable, and lights over bed too near to head.
Location: Nice location half way between Bournemouth and Boscombe, and overlooking the seafront. Bus passes front door.
The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We had been given a lovely room with a sea view. Buffet breakfast was very good with a good choice of fruit, cereal and full English breakfast. There is a lift which was helpful for my elderly father. The hotel is clean, and our bathroom had a walk-in/sit down shower, which again is good for an elderly or disabled person. We liked the location - on the seafront, and just far enough out of Bournemouth centre as to be nice and quiet at night - about a 15 minute walk. Actually half way between Bournemouth and Boscombe piers. We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel and would use it again.

Nice location, dated facility

Posted Aug 21, 2013
Overall this hotel was OK, but I couldn't say I loved it. The people were really nice, and I really enjoyed the sunny, ocean view porch/lounge area. It was in a nice quiet area. However the room was a bit disappointing: small and really needed a good makeover. The carpet and furnishings were rather old in the room. There was no bath, only a very small shower that was a bit awkward to get in and out of. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the boardwalk area and city center, but only 5 minutes to an elevator that goes down to the beach. There was free parking. The rooms we had would not have been suitable for anyone who is disabled. It was not directly reached with the lift and one could not avoid climbing stairs, plus there was a wierd little staircase between the room and the en suite bathroom. So I suggest that anyone booking there make a mention of the fact if they are unable to climb stairs.

Overall hotel was good but wasn't suitable for summer. The room was very hot in there afternoon when I missed room cooling system terribly. Also, there was big party till mid-night so I could not sleep properly.

Great Location with Great service

Posted Jul 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very clean room with a great view. All the staff very helpful and friendly. It is also worth saying that they are very hard working staff. When we booked the hotel we did not realise how good it would be. We will definetly be revisiting it was great value for money.
