Small and friendly establishment, clean with wonderful views of the sea. A little too far from Bournemouth centre but would stay here again.

Average over priced
Thought was a little expensive for a room above a pub . Very basic met my needs but was extremly busy and the steaks were over cooked but this was resolved but duty manager who was very helpful . Check in was not great stood in middle of bar till someone was free and then was quite a lengthy check in . 2 flights of stairs to my room . View over back kitchen area . For £99 thought abit over priced stayed better .

Nice place to stay, very peaceful.
Great stay, all the colleagues were lovely. Especially the lady behind the bar. She was superb. The manager was very understanding and really made me feel welcome during my stay.
