Good value hotel well with good facilitiesRoom was comfortable but small. Spa facilities were great. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Short 5 minute downhill walk to the beach. About 30 minute stroll to Bournemouth. Shame buses don't run after about 7pm. Really enjoyed the stay.

Very smart hotel, close to town centre and beach. Booked one of their refurbished rooms (they are 104, 204 and 304) for three nights in September 2017. Very pleasant with a sea view. I requested in advance to have a small fridge placed in the room. This was done and the fridge was there when we arrived. The bar staff were very friendly and the restaurant ...

Convenient for beach and Town, walking.The " view" from our room looked down on the roof of a function room and the external wall of the rear bedrooms - would have preferred to at least have the option of upgrading to a sea view. Parking was a problem until resolved by a very helpful Duty Manager.
