A good experience
The Hotel was in a handy location and as parking was included we left the car and hopped on the buses which ran right past the door.
The room was large and quiet. Lots of choice for breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room was very disappointing as the bed was very hard, additionally there was a generator/air conditioning unit outside of the room which kept coming on overnight. These 2 facts led to a very disturbed night's sleep. Outside of the room were old matresses and beds which did not give a good impression of the hotel, which to be honest was in need of redecorating throughout. The breakfast was reasonable but luke warm rather than hot.
Very friendly,polite and helpful staff.
Our room was very large and roomy. It had a fridge which was very useful. Towels changed everyday. Lovely hot water at all times.
In general a pleasant stay but a couple negatives for us.
Our room was a very good size with shower and bath ensuite.
The décor was a little tired but it was clean. The staff were friendly, polite, efficient and professional. Our room was, in the main, quiet being at the rear of the hotel with the exception of the seagulls which were very noisy sometimes during the early hours and our last night was disturbed until past 1.00am by a dance with a live band being held in the hotel which we could hear even with our windows closed and cotton wool in our ears.
And our main gripe was the fact that despite being advertised as 'Non Smoking throughout' we regularly had to pass by smokers on the steps up to the main entrance which was unpleasant and the smoke also drifted into the main entrance hallway and the steps were at times littered with cigarette ends. Not a good impression.
Excellent service by Late Rooms. Still waitibg to hear from Hotel.
Genuine mistake in booking the room for the day we were booking and not for the following evening.
Couldn't cancel as it was 6.30 in the evening... no one at reservations at the hotel available.... Late Rooms tried to contact on our behalf. On the day we arrived the Manager was not available to speak with Late Rooms... the Receptionist could not help us as the Reservations team had left.... we still do not know if we have had to pay for two nights for what was a genuine mistake which we tried to correct as soon as the confirmation came through. Disappointed with the hotel.... not with Late Rooms. Staff at Hotel during our visit were very pleasant and helpful, breakfast first class.
Worn around the edges
Very tired and dated.
Bathroom light had not worked for ages, better places to stay for the price. Saving grace bar staff very friendly and efficient.
Excellent Value For Money
Really enjoyed our stay at the Wessex.
The hotel is a little tired and would benefit from a lick of paint but this is reflected in the price and is excellent value for money. The breakfast is great and the hotel has good facilities and parking. The location is ideal for the town and the beach. We will certainly stay here again.
Lovely relaxing stay
A lovely relaxing friendly hotel situated perfectly in the West Cliff area of Bournemouth, the town centre is a 15 min walk via the pleasant stroll along the cliffs.
The leisure centre has good sized indoor and outdoor pools a very pleasant stay.
Was an okay visit but could do with a major refurb.
Outdated furniture and the interior throughtout the hotel could do with improvement. Floorboards were creeky in the hall ways and a very strong smell of chlorine in the room. The bath was dirty and the tiles looked like it has seen better days. The outside needs to have a lick of paint which first impressions aee important. Although the reception looked very nice and staff where friendly enough.
