We stayed for a gig down the road, and the location was pretty good for this (and shopping). The staff were super friendly and helpful. The room was decorated in a really old fashioned/out dated way, with marks all over the walls and rubbish under the bed. The shower didn't seem super clean and as I turned the shower on,... More

I booked a small double room for a mid week night so I could go out with work and not worry about travelling 35 miles home on public transport. I only checked trip advisor after booking and was a little concerned by the reviews I read. The room was cheap, probably the cheapest in Bournemouth and to my surprise exceeded... More

Seen some negative comments but thought worth a risk as very good price. Paid £50 for 5 people for 1 night, so £10 each. Room was comfortable clean and beds comfortable even the bunks. Bathroom a little dated but plenty of hot water. Warm welcome and large towels. Well worth the price and a great location close to the town... More

It cannot be called a hotel, it's more like a hostel. We stayed in room 3 and it stunk of paint, the shower room was tiny, the toilet was crammed into a little corner with access being very limited. The flush didn't work properly. The shower control was fitted incorrectly. As soon as you enter tgrough the front door the... More

I cannot believe that I didn't check any reviews before I booked. This establishment is truly the worst I have ever stayed in. The location is the only good point. Offensive smell in entrance hall. No soap. Cold water in shower. No communal facilities. No food. Squeaky floor. No hand towels. Save your money. I cannot believe this place was... More

I needed some short term accommodation that was very cheap. I was expecting the out dated decor, the windows and doors not being the best and even the tiny ensuite. The ensuite was small and had carpet. The carpet smelt of stale old urine and when it got a bit humid from the shower it was really offensive. The shower... More

Never again what a dreadful place, the smell, the decor, just everything. Shower was so dirty could not use, windows did not shut, toilet seat was broken, wardrobe was falling apart. Would not even send my enermies here it was that bad.
