Very convenient hotel for visiting our friends.

Posted Mar 23, 2017
Pros: Near to sea and beach for our walks along cliffs and promenade for morning coffees at excellent Durley Chine Café. Very comfortable lounge areas
Cons: Washbasin, shower and bath taps in our room were difficult to operate. Floodlight on adjacent flat roof was extremely bright.
Location: Excellent location for beach, shops, walks and visiting friends locally which was the intention of our short break at your hotel.
An enjoyable short stay at a well run hotel with extremely welcoming and friendly staff. Very good menu choice for enjoyable evening meal. Self service breakfast was also very satisfactory.

Nice Hotel close to the BIC

Posted Mar 19, 2017
Pros: Comfortable and good access to town and the Bic
Cons: Some of the fittings in the room need to improved. The bath was chipped and the shower leaked. It did not spray from the rose but around the edge.
Location: Good access to the town, beach and Boscombe.
A comfortable room. Easy distance from town centre and the BIC for the gig that we were attending. Facilities provided a comfortable stay and a warm welcome from staff.

Lovely hotel with very little wrong

Posted Mar 6, 2017
If I had to be picky the toast wasn't great at breakfast but the rest was great. Also the windows where quite hard to open and had a little mold on one. Otherwise the room was great, very big and comfortable and the bathroom was good too with a bath and shower. Would definitely stay again
