            • Single
              5.0

              Is it legal to add a mystery 2 pound charge, which the receptionist can only explain as 'admin' and apparently appears in the small print after you have booked (and can't cancel)?

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Friendly young lady on reception. We stayed in room 100 . the window was stuck closed so she offered us a fan which was appreciated as room was very warm. Breakfast was good. We went down at 9.00 half hour before breakfast finishes. Still plenty to choose from .

              We stayed in a budget room as only a one nighter. Room look. Would sted a bit drab and tired. Bet very comfy tho. Would def stay again

            • Single
              5.4

              not much really , it was a room for the night, staff were okay, breakfast was okay,

              poor quality hotel, everything needs a refurb, But my main grumble is they now charge £2.00 surchurge when paying by card, so i won't be staying again , on principle

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Really comfortable bed, well equipped shower room. quiet room, close to town eg shops/restaurants/bars, good choice at buffet breakfast. For a last minute booking it was good value and clean and comfortable. Plenty of parking.

              Very small room, more a single than a double. Curtains looked tatty only because maintenance not kept up on replacing curtain rings on pole and not hanging curtains properly. Couldnt light up bathroom mirror. Very tiny sink and super narrow space in bathroom. Terrible teabags. No saucers just tiny cups. Exit tokens were not given out by staff or even mentioned at any time which was inconvenient as on first confused attempt at leaving car park reception had be to revisited. The serving utensils got super hot under lights at buffet breakfast shame same couldnt be said of coffee in insulated flasks though.

            • Group of friends
              3.8

              The hotel was horrible! The rooms were not clean and the stuff unfriendly. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

              1. Staff at reception took a very long time to answer the phone. When they did, they were very unfriendly, especially the night porter (who refused to bring a bottle of water upstairs because most customers are typically drunk - the water was for a pregnant friend!) 2. Housekeeping took 1 HOUR to bring the iron to the room by which time we were late for the event for which we came to Bournemouth in the first place. 3. The room was not clean! When my dress fell off the shelve in the wardrobe it was covered in dust once it touched the base of the wardrobe.

              7.0

              Ithought the hotel was good and the food was excellent

              Ithought that the bar closed very early not usual in most hotels

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Staff where friendly, breakfast was good.

              The room its self in is need of updating, I.E. rooms need painting/ and a new look for the wall paper as what was on their was falling off with damp patches and the front window had on the side had what looked like duck tape on it. But don't let this put you of as I am sure that this will all soon be sorted out.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Good cheap hotel. Basic room but very clean & great for the price. Breakfast was also good.

              Shower in room wasn't working correctly, pressure was rubbish.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              For £25 per room, everything, except...

              ...The heating was on all night.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Staff were friendly and helpful. The smellies in the bathroom were a nice touch as was the tea and coffee

              Felt the general hotel was dated and could do with modernization, sink in bedroom cracked, no double glazing just generally felt dated and in need of modernization, for the money I expected it to be better than it was. Also the menu for the evening needs looking at particularly the fish / veggie option

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Lovely staff, decent room, quiet and nice view overlooking the gardens at the front.

              The food wasn't gourmet by any stretch of the imagination, but the evening meal was reasonably priced (£5 for children, £11 for adults) and the kids enjoyed the all you can eat buffet style.

            • Couple
              4.6

              Having booked a double room, we turned up at the hotel and was told we had to stay in two single rooms (not exactly the best way to spend a romantic weekend) so after asking how this happened, we were shown to room 32. No windows, no air con, just two low powered fans which took the hotel ages to find. After getting hardly any sleep due to the intense heat in the room, breakfast was also poor, tasted cheap and greasy! We were very disappointed!

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Location near to beach and town. Staff pleasant but at times short in number. Prices competitive. Food good.

              Dining room at times disorganised. Things would run out and were often not replaced until you asked. Tea and coffee facilities were a joke. A £3 per day charge for the car park was not appreciated.

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              Quite a late check-in (15.00) which the hotel stuck rigidly to. On finally getting to a very basic room, some simple checks in ensuring the room was ready for guests were overlooked: No toilet roll / no towels etc. Took three phone calls to housekeeping / reception to get them. Considering there is little else to prepare in the rooms, quite poor customer service delivery.

              Cheap Parking Breakfast included

              Dated Too hot Not enough surface space to put things.
