spent 3 rainy August nights here. Good pool area. Hotel owned pub next door with reasonable food. Good breakfast and attentive service. Hotel not quite in centre but easy links via bus and land train stops outside, also cliff lift right opposisite. Our room at rear uninspiring but clean and spacious. Good in hotel restaurants seemed a little expensive and no choice for kids, but overall would stay again and beach/ town restaurants 6-7 minute steep walk down the hill.
Bournemouth tries hard with good gardens, activities and fireworks through the Summer.
Great stay, friendly staff and perfect location close to the beach. The breakfast was excellent! The only downside (and I'm being very picky) is that the view from our room was of the car park, which had a skip full of old hotel furniture in it.
Will definitely be going back.
Impressive hotel with grand façade situated opposite Bournemouth’s pier, beach and conference centre, 120 meters from the …More
We stayed in a standard room which was a good size and the beds were comfortable, but it was very dated and seemed dark. Could have done with redecorating. There was a lot of noise from the road outside which kept us awake at night and woke us up early. Towels were very small. Expensive for what it was.
Voted “the happiest place in the UK” in a 2007 poll, Bournemouth is a rapidly growing coastal resort town, with 11 km of sandy beaches. A vibrant town center, picturesque gardens, and sightseeing cruises from Bournemouth Pier add to its appeal. Robert Louis Stevenson wrote The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde here, and the town figures prominently in many of Thomas Hardy’s classic novels.
