Nice hotel at the beach

Posted Dec 10, 2017
Indoor/ outdoor pools and spa, short walk to centre , close to beach. Shower was not brilliant, if you are used to power shower, could not fault staff, couldn't do enough for you. Plenty of parking Breakfast, buffet style, plenty of choice

Good hotel and location

Posted Dec 4, 2017
Pros: It seemed to be well run and as we were there a little ahead of Christmas they had their decoration up which were very tastefully done.
Cons: One broken blind in our bathroom and no remote control; for the TV
Location: Did not experience any as we were there to be with friends.
We had a pleasant two night stay in December. Hotel was well heated and comfortable. We did not have time to use any of the facilities. Breakfast was very good if a little expensive. We had no other meals in the hotel.

Very smart hotel, close to town centre and beach.

Posted Oct 8, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness and friendly staff.
Cons: I did not appreciate being charged to park my car in the hotel car-park.
Location: Sea, town BIC and the Pavilion Theatre all within walking distance.
Booked one of their refurbished rooms (they are 104, 204 and 304) for three nights in September 2017. Very pleasant with a sea view. I requested in advance to have a small fridge placed in the room. This was done and the fridge was there when we arrived. The bar staff were very friendly and the restaurant food was excellent and the staff matched that.

Excellent location. Used to be a first class hotel

Posted Sep 26, 2017
Pros: Location,
Cons: See above.
Bathroom in need of refit. Hand basin not functioning properly,shower head fell off ,poor water pressure. Menu choice in dining room very poor . (4 Star Hotel with burgers on dinner menu ) ? Dining room understaffed. We waited 20 minutes before order was taken,a further 10 mins for wine service, and another 10 mins for delivery of meal. It gives me no pleasure in criticiseing, what used to be our favourite Bournemouth hotel.

It would be good to have a mini bar in the room to put cold drinks in. My only criticism was about the loos that didn't flush properly and were stuffed With paper! Staff were very helpful and polite. Nice atoms sphere
