Great place, the room was very clean, great view. Lovely staff, all very friendly and helpful. We used the bar in the evening and that was good. Our only issue was with the cooked breakfast, which unfortunately was not hot and had been reheated, so over cooked, continental choices and the coffee where great. Would definitely staff here again.

Ideally placed hotel for the beach, Bournemouth Conference Centre and the town. Clean, good sized rooms and very helpful staff. Ample parking across the road. The hotel is a stones throw from walks along the beach and five minutes to gardens and town. Breakfasts were good with plenty of choice and our evening meal was first class. There are plenty...

Room was clean reasonably appointed. The check in staff were pleasant and an upgrade to executive room was very welcome. The term executive is over used particularly in this case rooms too small, bathroom fittings minimalistic, tv poor quality. Breakfast was a farce, food rushed the scrambled egg was more rehydrated than cordon bleu given the restaurant is one of...
