From the moment we arrived we were treated exceptionally by all the staff, never before have I stayed in a hotel that every member of staff were above and beyond every expectation. The hotel is full of character, very clean, our room was very spacious for myself and my daughters, as it was a Birthday treat, it was very clean...

Greeted by charming staff and that welcome continued throughout our visit. Set meal in the restaurant (part of an overnight package) was exceptionally good for the price. As was breakfast the next day (at which smoked haddock and poached egg was an option for a change). It is an old hotel but the main areas have been revamped. We liked...

Stayed on a Saturday night in a superior room. The hotel has free parking on site and is located opposite the Bournemouth International Centre, close to the pier/ beach and shopping centre. The decor in the hotel is a little dated, however, the staff in reception, restaurant and bars were all very friendly and very helpful which makes up for...

Excellent service, good accomodation, fantastic quality food although the evening meals menu was a little limited so had same dish on two nights. Good parking, lovely walks just round the corner in the park. Free internet but you had to sign up to Facebook (or similiar other) in order to connect.

We were upgraded to a executive room which was nice but I would dread to think what the standard rooms are like because the upgrade wasn't worth it, spa bath is tiny and the shower didn't work properly, bed was comfy but the bedding was crap, the bed moved around, I wouldn't stay here again. Thanks to the receptionist for...

Its a long time since I stayed at a hotel with such welcoming, friendly, helpful courteous staff that impressed me more than anything else. The food was very good although my sister in law who was over from South Africa found the menu a bit repetitive. We had a lovely room and the housekeeping excellent too. Some small niggles but...

We decided last minute to stay here whilst visiting local family. After spending the afternoon in the restaurant we decided to enjoy more cocktails and stay overnight as it was a Bank holiday. The staff in the restaurant were excellent - the food was delicious and very reasonably priced (generous portions which were well presented). The restaurant manager was very...

All the staff were extremely helpful and the location (less than 3 minutes from sea front) was ideal for early morning or late evening stroll. It was also close to town. It had a reasonable bar on site

From the moment we arrived everything was as it should be. Sarah on reception was very welcoming and always smiling. Our room was large and spotlessly clean as was the ensuite. The food was varied and indeed delicious served by great staff and nothing too much trouble. We will go back and recommend this hotel to all.
