I am a regular visitor to the area. I have stayed in many hotels, usually 4 star. Came across this on on Groupon, gave it ago and were so impressed returned a month later for 3 nights. This is not one of Bournemouth's tired old hotels and deserves an extra star! The rooms are spacious and well heated. The coffee...

The hotel is well located for the town centre. The standard double rooms are small and dated. The ensuite is dated. Corridors are dated. The bar area was nice but the Italian lager was very flat indeed. The pool is compact but an unexpected addition given the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was ok, eggs and mushrooms rather greasy but...

Me and my partner just got back from this hotel. Had a wonderful weekend to somewhere we'd never been before. Considering we're in our early 20's this hotel was still rather perfect for our weekend away. With a lovely restaurant, friendly team and a nice swimming pool with sauna too. Our bedroom was equipped with everything you need, a kettle...

My husband and I thought this hotel was lovely. I got a deal for two nights B&B and then paid £20 to upgrade to a superior room. Was gorgeous! Bed was enormous, room was lovely and spacious with a couch too. Bathroom was compact but beautifully clean and shower was lovely. We used the swimming pool and stream room, which...
