Worst Hotel I've stayed in
My wife & I stayed here for the Bournemouth airshow, we arrived at the hotel at 15:00 an hour after check-in time. We were told that the room was still not ready as they were short staffed, we decided to get something to eat on the beach front and returned at 17:00. This time the room was ready, we payed for the room which including over-night parking was £90. As soon as we started walking up the stairs we started getting the feeling our stay was not going to be the best. Very dark staircase, dirty carpets and curtains closed which made it feel more like a hostel than anything else. We finally got to our room which to start with was tiny, none of the furniture matched, the carpets again were stained and not fitted correctly which create uneven flooring. The only plug socket I found was broken with exposed wires which also meant the side light did not work. As we were going out for the evening I decided to go into the ensuite, which had a shower base covered in mould, it had what I can only explain as spillage marks on the base as well. We decided not to shower that evening as it was too dirty and freshened up instead. When we arrived back later that night we went straight to bed but then noticed a huge stain on the bed matress and as there was no protector it showed through the sheets, so my wife decided to lay a towel down on the bed to protect us. Once we were laying down trying to sleep we noticed the door to our room kept banging everytime someone walked past or up the stairs so had to wedge another towel under the door to prevent this from happening. When we woke in the morning we both woke in a lot of pain to our backs where the bed was so uncomfortable and with pillows thinner than pancakes. Again we quickly freshened up and went to check out, we decided not to eat breakfast as we were too scared to. The airshow was great, just a shame the hotel ruined the weekend and ours backs. This hotel wouldn't even be appropriate for a stag weekend, I highly recommend you do not stay here and is definitely not worth the £90 per night their charging.

Air show weekend
Perfectly placed for Air Show, friendly & helpful staff. Room missing a bedside light and glass/plastic cup in bathroom - double bed too small so had to use extra bed in room, otherwise fine, although there was a stag party - bit noisy early hours morning coming in. But they enjoyed themselves, and we had a great weekend.

Will come back
We did have a few issues, such as only 1 socket but staff could not have been more helpful. Asked for extra milk, ice etc and only too pleased to help, Room could have done with a small dressing table and mirror and bathroom a shelf but all was good. Within very short walking distance of town and loads of good restaurants just over the road.

Avoid
Dirty room, made the mistake of looking at the mattress! Noisy and had to keep window shut so like being in a sauna. Place looked tired and in need of a good clean.

very basic TLC needed
A very basic hotel needs updating and repairs. Room decent size but no frills just basic one downside was the quality of the sausages at breakfast very cheap ones we did not bother to have breakfast on second morning. Cannot fault the staff all of whom were really good and helpful. Would not stay in winter as there is not any central heating.
