Hotel with lots of facilities
This hotel is facility packed, it has a gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, bar, conference rooms and so on. The lounge complete with fire is a particularly nice feature. The staff are all very warm, friendly and provide a great service and the rooms are very comfortable. The location is a short walk from either Bournemouth town centre or Boscombe.

Mixed feelings
Good: food, friendly staff, clean. I would recommend an executive room, as our basic room was small but adequate. The hotel needs a facelift, then it could easily be 4 star.

Family mini break
Perfect for what we needed, a little tired around the edges, but decent well equipped room and fab buffet breakfast. Thought the pool was a tad cold for a hotel ‘floaty’ pool, but we enjoyed it all the same. Easy walking distance to either Bournemouth or Boscombe and plenty of parking. Friendly helpful staff.

Service second to none. Real value for money!
I had the most wonderful stay. The hotel is a bit outdated, but that is part of it's charm. Very clean rooms! Restaurant spotless. Staff very friendly. Sue at reception a gem. Housekeeping ladies seem to love their job and the hotel which is beautiful. They take great care and pride in what they do. The breakfast was wonderful. Good quality products and the manager provides a high quality and standard of service. Used the bar late at night and very friendly guy served me. He provided help choosing drinks and knew his stuff. The man who checked me in was very professional and gave me a map of the area and taxi number. The only negative comment I have was the shower had absolutely no power, it was a struggle. But could revert to bath so it wasn't all gloom. Also should add that I got a complimentary late check out. I will return.

New Year break
Great staff and good service, food and room and comfortable bed. Slightly dated and could do with bit of an update on decor, the pool and spa very dated and tired and showers there grim. But that aside, a good value friendly and spacious place
