ok but
the room itself was clean and modern very small but ok for one i found the bed although was a good size but too high as i have arthritis in back and hips and only 5ft3 found it very difficult to get in getting out was ok as i could slide out also the pillows were very lumpy and hard so didnt sleep well also the floor boards in the corridor are very creaky so i was disturbed when people walked by . the staff are all very pleasant
rosemary, gb2 night trip
Very good 8,0
It was generally very good some areas a bit tired our room 322 was beautiful couldn’t fault it
Susan, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8,0
Pleasant stay in a top town.
Used the hotel because it was round the corner from where my mates were staying. We were down to see City place Bournemouth. My room was small but functional. Breakfast was very good. Convenient location. Oldish hotel which some people might think k needs to be refurbished but I thought it was quirky.

Exceptional 10,0
Great stay
Much much better than a star.
genevieve, gb3 night trip
Good 6,0
Good for a short stay, but any longer ....
Hotel is in a good location close to the beach, although its a steep hill down to the sea. Has its own small car park (£10 / 24 hrs). It does get very busy, has does the side roads. So parking can be an issue. We opted for the larger standard room. You couldn't swing a cat. I'd hate to think what it was like in the compact rooms. It has a lovely small indoor swimming pool, with a sauna & gym. I wouldn't recommend more than a one night stay unless it was in the lager rooms.
