We stayed for one night midweek at a very fair price. We were greeted at reception by a young lady with a smile on her face who was really helpful. We arrived about 2 hours early for check in, but the room was ready so we were given the keys. The room was small but quite adequate, lovely shower room,...

We stayed here when going for a show at the Bournemouth International Centre and the location was great - just a 20 minute walk into town and off the main road so it's nice and quiet. Room prices were reasonable (we did stay midweek) but the decor of the room were given was disappointing and although there were tea facilities...

Reasonably priced, clean. The sea view was fantastic!! Close enough to the town centre to walk if you want to. Facilities at the neighbouring hotels available as there is no indoor pool at this one. Didn't have time to use the spa facilities.....next time

Fantastic stay, booked through one of the voucher groups, staff were great, facilities were clean and the food and drink were to a high standard. Sea view room was great no issues with cleanliness. Well worth exploring the other hotels as they are part of the same group. Flawless break away. Thank you

Stayed here recently for one night. For £40 a night it was a bargain! Looks like they have just had a refurb so all looks really nice and room was very comfortable, really enjoyable staff. Only negative would be the bar- its beer needs to be colder!

We couldn't get into this Hotel with our Groupon voucher for the dates we required as the Hotel was very busy, The food in the restaurant was very very good, the service was also extremely good and we enjoyed the view of the partygoers in their fancy dress

Found this on booking.com was a bit unsure as it's fairly new, but we had a lovely stay. Took us about 15 minutes to walk to the town centre from the hotel so it was nice to be a little out of the way but close enough to get into town without needing a taxi. The room was lovely and...

Overall our double room, two night stay, on the 3rd floor with a sea view, was just what my mum and I needed. I felt very comfortable and welcomed staying there.
