We stayed there on the 10 & 11 May on a cheap Travelzoo mid-week break deal and were obviously not expecting more than a basic room. However, when we arrived we found they had upgraded us to a superior room, which was excellent and quiet, being on the seaward side. All the staff we came into contact with were extremely...

This was our second stay here booking through Travelzoo great value for money the evening meals were very good as was the breakfast. The room was a large family room looking towards the sea it had some creaky floor boards but it is an old building so gave it some old world charm.

We have a great deal at this hotel with Travelzoo. We stayed just one night as we live quite local. The hotel has a nice bar ajoining one side and a nightclub on the other (open at weekends). It's right opposite the BIC concert hall and the beach and the park. Perfect location. It even has parking. That was a...

All members of staff were very friendly and always extremely helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble. I had a single room which was truly superb it was...

This is an old building, and my room and bathroom were on the verge of needing some updating (e.g. window didn't open properly, a wobbly tap and a loo that didn't flush easily), however the bed was comfortable and the standards of cleanliness are good. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, and the location is good.

Greeted by charming staff and that welcome continued throughout our visit. Set meal in the restaurant (part of an overnight package) was exceptionally good for the price. As was breakfast the next day (at which smoked haddock and poached egg was an option for a change). It is an old hotel but the main areas have been revamped. We liked...

Stayed on a Saturday night in a superior room. The hotel has free parking on site and is located opposite the Bournemouth International Centre, close to the pier/ beach and shopping centre.
