Spring Stay

The hotel was part of Oceana which had two other hotels, which we knew of, next door.

They had a spa and swimming pool. We didn't use the spa, but did use the pool when we were informed that there was a jacuzzi available. However, there wasn't. The only thing we could see was an area which the jacuzzi used to be in. The pool itself was fairly decent, but the area was dilapidated and the water had a layer of something (which we assumed was skin). It made us want out of the pool fairly quickly.

The service was fairly good. They attempted to resolve any issue we had promptly. The general staff were more helpful than the management, though. Our lights kept going out and we were told it was something we were plugging in to the sockets - I didn't know we weren't allowed to use the sockets. One manager was abrupt by telling us they sorted the problem while we were out (which is fair because they probably did), but when we came back, the lights still weren't working. Our WiFi was very sketchy too. It worked fine downstairs in the lobby, but up on the fourth floor was where we struggled to connect. We tried using all the devices we had, but it never seemed to identify the connection. The staff clearly didn't believe us when we told them so, but we were lucky to have our data at hand.

The breakfast was lovely, and the staff were friendly. Bedroom was in a decent state, although it could do with updating in certain areas.

This was an excellent value stay as part of a business trip to Bournemouth. Great room and breakfast

What a super find.

Delightful location with views and a fab pool and bar area for that post business moment. Fine customer service and care. Everything you need to enjoy a stay. Excellent hotel would use again!
