    Perfect

    Very nice location by the sea, bus stop in front of the house, 10 minutes walk to the centre. Very friendly staff, spacious and clean room and bathroom.

    Spartan breakfast buffet, not appropriate for a 4 star accommodation. Large bright dining room, but due to the furnishings there is uncomfortable ambience that does not invite you to linger.

    The hotel is really very nice. Nice staff, all very clean and comfortable. All in all, I found it a bit expensive....

    see above about the price

    we got an upgrade to a room with a sea view, very nice and big room, thank you!

    Breakfast and restaurant were very good. The room was very spacious and comfortable, with a beautiful view. The bathroom was rather small and not well equipped. There were no toothbrush jars, no way to turn anything off. The bath towels can certainly be used more than 1 time, but there was no opportunity to hang them up.

    Perfect

    Very nice room with XXL bed. Well-kept shower bath, great restaurant. The best is the location! The peer's right across the street. Many restaurants in the surrounding area. 11GBP for the multi-storey car park are well invested.

    There's nothing to get mad about here!

    Nice

    Top location with view to the pier. The room was big.

    The furniture was worn out, as if it hadn't been changed since 1990. The windows were dirty and the shower didn't work properly. The cooking was good, but everything else left something to be desired. Packed muesli with yoghurt or Gouda & ham with toast.

    Perfect

    The bed was the most comfortable I have found in any hotels I have visited!. The breakfast was lovely. It was the perfect location for our daughter's graduation. the car parking was also a bonus and well worth the money.

    The inability to gain entry to the room until 3.00 but this was only a minor inconvenience

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    The position was good and the breakfast was one of the best! The staff at breakfast were also excellent and very helpful.

    The only thing was the time restriction on the fixed menu on a Friday night.

    Perfect

    A lovely hotel, very central for Bournemouth. Excellent staff both in the hotel and the restaurant. We will certainly be visiting again.

    Shower wasn't very hot but that is our only "complaint"

    Location so near the conferance centre

    Perfect

    Location - wonderful room with sea view

    Bar very expensive even by hotel standards - shame there was no fish option on breakfast menu - given it was a fish restaurant! - and no real lounge area to sit in

  • 8.2
    Great

    Ideal siting for the Conference Centre. Good full English breakfast - your review stated only continental.

    No lounge facilities. Tiny bar area. Bedroom really uncomfortably hot for the entire time of our stay. There was no heating on and we used the fan in the room continuously. Would not advise staying here in the summer. Smell of cooked food throughout the hotel.

    Great

    Hotel and restaurant staffs were excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Room was spacey with very nice sea-view. Loved it!

    The bathroom was not of the best design so it was a bit of uncomfortable use, especially the door.. Please try using it yourself and you will see..

    Perfect

    The staff were very friendly and polite and extremely helpful

    just one minor moan was that at breakfast they forgot our eggs and when we asked for more toast they also forgot

  • 8.8
    Great

    The service was excellent and the food was unbelieveable for the price (I had the set menu).

    I felt the rooms though comfortable are a little stark, a few more warm colours and home comforts might be good
