Business stay

Stay in Bournemouth a lot, usual hotel was fully booked, very good hotel great views, slightly dated, but very good value for money considering time of year (winter) free on site parking and WiFI unlike other hotels who sting you for that when you check in, would stay again

Absolutely amazing.

Defiantly recommend to anyone, the staff were very friendly and went above and beyond there duty to make our stay as pleasant as they could. The bar was closed one night and we asked at reception if we could get a drink..m the receptionist called through to someone to have us served and allowed us to relax in the bar whilste we finished our drinks. The view from our room was beautiful overlooking the pool and the sea as you looked out. Extremely comfy bed that provided a great nights sleep. All in all it was a fantastic hotel to stay in, will definitely be returning and would reccomend it to anybody looking for a relaxing stay at Bournemouth.

Great value

Staff very friendly and helpful.

Not too many restaurants near by but the food at the sister restaurant was lovely. Well worth the money big family room. Will stay again

Get what you pay for

Slightly disappointed that breakfast was in the hotel next door meaning we had to go out on the road to get there, if I would have known I would have booked next door.

In all the hotel is okay not lavish but then you get what you pay for. letters blown off the name making it the cean hotel when I arrived. very close to the beach great for a night away although I wouldn't be booking again just for the simple fact that's it's very run down.

Short break in Bournemouth

The hotel room was basic, clean but a bit tired.

Staff were great. Shame the bar was closed but we could use the bar in the sister hotel next door.

A Lovely Stay

We had a great room with a fantastic sea view.

The only point we can mention was some localised wear and tear/water damage to the bathroom floor. Nothing major - we had a lovely stay.

Perfect for a low-budget trip

The staff were friendly, the hotel nice and clean, and at £40 for the night I certainly can't complain.

A two minute walk from the beach and 10 minutes into town. My only gripe is that our room seemed to be below some sort of staff area as we got a good 2 hours of heavy walking and creaky floorboards above us very early in the morning.

Family friendly hotel

Excellent customer services , specially in the canteen.

But the room needs to be decorated. It is also a bit smelly. Shower is not powerful. It might be a bit noisy for rooms at the rear side, which is the entrance and car park area. Others are fine.
