    Good

    Value for money. Good breakfast.

    Not enough parking, had to park on the road. Bar prices were high.

    Superb

    Comfortable, made to feel welcome. The staff are all polite, helpful and happy to talk to everyone nothing to much trouble. We have used the hotel before and always feel relaxed there regardless of how long our stay is.

    Both female receptionists could not do enough to help us. All staff very nice and helpful.

    Superb

    We chose this Hotel for it`s location for the event we were visiting,but particularly for it`s price and the fact we could take our little dog. The staff were excellent and provided very well for our needs and we would certainly go there again as we regularly visit Bournemouth.

    My only criticism was the shower in our bathroom was a bit weedy ( no pressure ) and the bracket loose. I should have said something on checking out but as our stay all in all was very good it did`nt seem important at the time.

    On-site parking was really useful. Good bar facilities, helpful staff and excellent location

    Shame the outdoor pool wasnt open and if the rate included breakfast that would have been a nice touch

    Unless you have a seaview room all other rooms appear to overlook the extraction fan, as was ours (351). The fan starts at 06.30hrs and does not switch off until dinner is finished. We were unable to change the room.Dinner is £25.00 per person not £15.00 as shown on the booking form. Breakfast was good as was breakfast staff. The two adjacent hotels, recently refurbished, are a better buy.

    Superb

    The view from our hotel room was excellent and it sits in a very nice location. The bed in the room was very comfy

    Parking facilities not that great but if you had to park on the road as we did, if you had sea view at least you could see your car

    Parking was very limited. My husband had a flat pint and the grumpy bar man was reluctant to change it!

    Fabulous

    Being told on arrival that the restuarant was closed and having to dine next door at sister hotel. Not treated as would of liked, treated like a outsider. Could of made other arrangements to eat out.

    Exceptional

    Very kind and accommodating reception staff, moved my room from 4th floor to 1st floor as I felt more comfortable being as near to the ground as possible. Bar staff very friendly and took time time to give a potted history of all three hotels in the group Lovely breakfast, large varity of hot and cold menu to choose from and very pleasent waiter. Brilliant hotel, looking forward to returning ......and pet friendly an added facility on offer

    Nothing...except the fog that I woke up to and couldnt see over the bay.....still that is out of our control!!!!!

    Good

    pool near bournemouth

    Clicked on twin room option during booking process. Found out that unless I specifically requested then twin was not actually guaranteed when i got to the hotel. Staff said it happens a lot - is the booking process properly setup? Thought breakfast was included - found out it was extra.

    Very good

    freindly helpful staff , treated with courtesy at all times . Excellent sea view . all communal areas well maintained and clean . Might use a different wallpaper hanger and decorator in bedroom , but all in all more than adequate all round . A nice bonus is the different feel to each of the three hotel buildings to which you have access during your stay .

    there genuinely isnt much to dislike , unless you expect the Hilton , in which case go there instead and pay the price ! this does pretty well for reasonable rates.
