Disappointed

Don't get me wrong for £69.00 I was not expecting the Ritz but that sort of price for 1 night just for the room I would at least expect it to have been cleaned i.e. it wasn't hoovered the bath was dirty and the bed was so hard that neither my partner or myself had hardly any sleep.

Coach Groups Hotel

As a solo traveller disrupted by Clipper to Guernsey stayed in UK a further night at this strange hotel. Herding instincts run high, odd schedules on reception, fabric and structure interiorly needs paint and decoration, style and design forgettable, an open window the cooling system in the bedroom. In the middle of frustrations found myself in hysterical laughter at the bizarre nature of this place.

Basic 2 star not 3 star

You would not want to stay here for a special occasion. If all you need is a room for the night its fine. Did not eat at the hotel as the general standards of Hygiene I felt to be lacking, towels placed outside the rooms on the floor, pool had green slime where you place your hand when turning in the pool, mould in the bathrooms. Went to the pub for meals.

Where Do I Start....

Expectation were not high realizing that we booked a budget break however... The room we were given on our first night, although a double, was awful. It was so small that the bed, no headboard,was pushed up against the wall on two sides so one person had to climb over the other or crawl in from the bottom. The other side had about a foots width to get through but the TV (only 5 channels) blocked the bottom end of the bed on that side. We were able to upgrade the next day to a bigger room which was well worth the money. The parking situation is horrendous although you have to pay £3 per night you will more than likely have to park at other hotels and walk back and what took the cake is that there were no available parking spaces there either. When complained they offered to refund the parking charge which really is not a solution at all because where would you park anyway? When we told the receptionist that it is not an acceptable solution she shrugged her shoulders held up her hand in a stop gesture and walked off. After about 5 minutes the duty manager appeared and said to just park in the entrance and if somebody needs to get in or out they would call us to move the car...??? Seriously?? Plus point it was only a 5 minute stroll from the seafront.

Very good

We got half price rooms as compensation from their sister hotel the Roundhouse. We was given a nice room, clean and tidy...old CRT tv but it worked. Food was good, both breakfast and dinner! Staff were friendly.......we enjoyed our stay. If you have a blue badge park on the opposite side of the rod outside the hotel, it's free! Would recommend highly if you like cheap and cheerful.

Great value!

Having read a lot of the reviews (good and bad), I was curious as to how the hotel was going to be. The location is great and within walking distance to Bournemouth town center. The lobby is pleasant and the staff very helpful. The elevators are very small, just enough for 2 people. The rooms are clean, light and airy. Plenty of extra pillows if you look in the closet. The value of this hotel is with the extra's. The free breakfast is great. Some of the other reviewers complained about it, but I didn't experience any of their issues (one complained about breakfast ending at 10am...? C'mon!). The only issue I did see was the dis-organisation. The dining room is very big and the staff they have work extremely hard to keep food items on the buffet line while clearing tables. They seem to clear tables piece by piece, instead of clearing one table and moving on to the next, leaving guests looking for somewhere to sit. I think a manager in the dining room to keep things running smoothly would be a good idea. Other than that, the food is very good, with plenty of selection. The hotel staff are superb. Most of them are Eastern European, but that's most hotels here and there was never a language issue. They're also very friendly and helpful. They had nightly entertainment while I was there and the bar did seem to have an "old people's home" feel to it, with 50-60 older guests watching the show. But then again, these type of caberet singers never did attract the young crowd. Parking seemed to be a small issue too. I parked on an adjacent street, which was only 2-3 pounds a day. Overall, it's a very good hotel. I would recommend it to anyone. And for $83 a night, you definitely can't beat the price.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Plenty of dining options a short (less than 10 mins) walk from the hotel in Bournemouth town center and it's outlying streets. 2 or 3 nightclubs in the area too, if you're into nightclubs.

Don't go on a Saturday night if you want a good sleep

This hotel was adequate enought but if you want a quiet night do not expect it on a Saturday. The hotel was full of people on stag and hen nights and was noisy. We didn't stay with young children but some people had done. The foul language of some of guests was something I wouldn't have wanted my children to have to listen to at 4am!
