Overnight stay in Bournemouth booked on basis of previous reviews. Host friendly and welcoming on arrival. Unfortunately room did not meet same expections. First thing we noticed was a broken dirty plastic bucket that was being used as a bin. Then we saw the fridge, which we thought was a nice touch - if it has been clean enough to...

This is a lovely little hotel. I stayed with my family and the owners were very hospitable and amenable to our requirements. Personally I always prefer the hotel linen to be white, as white keeps no dirty secrets!! Our room was spotlessly clean with perfectly white linen on very comfy beds. Next time we need a place to stay in...

The male host, wasn't offered a name was sarcastic and abrupt, the female host was borderline aggressive. Neither were welcoming or hospitable. Wifi was the absolute minimum you could get, the breakfast was the nastiest meal I have ever had the misfortune of ingesting. Room was ok, bed was ok, shower performance was like the hosts.. lacklustre. TV was big,...

The rooms were basic but clean and bright. The location was excellent for access to the town and BIC. The proprietor was keen to be helpful. They certainly went the extra mile for me. Food was cooked to taste and good portion size. Parking is limited but again the proprietor helped ensure sufficient was available. The hotel is situated on...
