            excellent place made my partner both welcome stay longer next time

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Comfortable room, very good breakfast, and evening meals were quite acceptable. Staff were very friendly & helpful.

            Rather expensive at £7.50 per night for our small dog.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the sunshine looking out to sea. The hotel was only a 5 min walk down to the glorious bournemouth beaches. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, and overall it was good value for money. A very enjoyable weekend was had by us all.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The staff were excellent especially the serving staff in the restaurant. The food served was also of a very high standard.

            The room was a little small and cramped although clean. The bar staff could have been more friendly in contrast to the servicing staff.

            9.6

            was very peaceful and the baqlcony had a beautiful view overlooking the water being able to see the needles at the end of the isle of whight! was a great stay and enjoyed myself with my boyfriend also the swimming pool and sauna are a thumbs up!

            the cleaners should knock before entering as we were busy

          • Couple
            10.0

            Everything, had a lovely time and the staff were wonderful.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Close enough to the sea and bus routes.

          • Couple
            9.2

            Comfortable. Friendly Staff. Good Food. Excellent Facilities. Very good value for money we paid.

            The whole experience was going wonderful until 0640 hrs in the morning when the fire alarm went off. We reported to the fire point expecting someone to be taking a roll call in accordance with instructions in the room. What did we find - nothing! After a while we went to reception - what did we find - Nothing! Eventually an elderly night porter comes and tells us it is a false alarm and we could go back to bed. Dads Army/Faulty Towers comes to mind - Don't panic!!!! Some fire training is recommended for all staff.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Very friendly staff, we had a nice room with a big balcony and seaview. Short distance from the beach.

            Not an easy access to city centre without a car (half an hour walk), buses doesnt run very often. Big bed but with a hard mattresses.

          • Older travelers
            4.2

            the location, the friendly staff

            There was alot of dusty atmosphere in the room as we were sneezing and itchy inside but all cleared as we came out. The changing and shower rooms in the swimming pool was far from each other. Not good choice for vegetarian menu and the chef was not helpful. Very costly for what we got

          • Family with children
            6.6

            It was away from the city centre. Clean and tidy room. Nice breakfast.

            The room was very small for 2 adults and a cot and very noisy in the evening.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            The room was spotless, the staff were very polite, the pool was nice and the breakfast was great. Its just a short walk from the beautiful beach and lovely restaurant overlooking the sea. Our room had a balcony and you could see the sea, which was lovely.

            Our only issue was the size of the room, we booked a family room. Actually it was just a standard size room with 3 beds in a row. There also wasnt much character to the room (due to space). Also, the hotel advertsed entertainment in the evening (which we werent expecting so not a huge issue) but the entertainment cancelled last minute and that was a shame for lots of the guests. But the good things far outweighed the bad.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Location near beach. Pleasant attitude of staff. Cleanliness of room service. Indoor swimming pool.

            Quality of breakfast was not maintained during whole breakfast period ie food sometimes seemed to become congealed, coffee not refreshed. Poor TV reception led to frequent loss of picture and sound.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The people were very nice,the hotel had a nice feeling to it also, myself and my wife enjoyed the two days we were there.
