My wife had booked the Park Central for a one night birthday stay and we were not disappointed. The greeting and genuine friendliness of the staff was excellent. We had booked one of the signature room which was lovely and despite the bar being closed had accommodated our request for Champagne on arrival in our room. The room was clean,...

Even though kitchens & restaurant closed everything was done to ensure a good service! Continental breakfast hampers each morning, this was still an enjoyable break.Staff excellent nothing to much trouble always willing to assist. Rooms very good, not too noisy even though renovation work was ongoing.

Great place, the room was very clean, great view. Lovely staff, all very friendly and helpful. We used the bar in the evening and that was good. Our only issue was with the cooked breakfast, which unfortunately was not hot and had been reheated, so over cooked, continental choices and the coffee where great. Would definitely staff here again.

Ideally placed hotel for the beach, Bournemouth Conference Centre and the town. Clean, good sized rooms and very helpful staff. Ample parking across the road. The hotel is a stones throw from walks along the beach and five minutes to gardens and town. Breakfasts were good with plenty of choice and our evening meal was first class. There are plenty...
