Awful experience no sleep due to a elephant in room above to early hours of morning then from 4am squeak squeak squeak.Also person on phone to early hours of the morning. Also car doors slamming early hours of the morning.The walls are very thin and floors squeak so much.The first floor above the bar so noisy.Work so hard just get a night away it was awful .The manager seemed nice but just said I will try find out who it is but I'm sure he will.My advice maybe room on top floor is best otherwise set of earplugs in the bottom rooms.Worse experience for ages a complete nightmare.

We received a warm welcome at this traditional seaside hotel. Ample free parking provided which was fantastic. Lovely quiet room. We made use of the gym, swimming pool Jacuzzi and sauna which was a real treat. Shame we had to restrict our time to an hour because of covid restrictions. The staff couldn't do enough to assist the guests to ensure a great stay. Only downside was no restaurant only the pub side was open. Although I think the menu being offered might have been better than we thought. We went out for dinner.

Very friendly staff who helped with any query we had. Only 10 mins walk from the beach and central to many restaurants Swimming pool, steam and sauna rooms are a bonus especially for the price paid. Good size, comfy room with tea and coffee and a small fridge. Cleanest hotel bathroom I've seen for a while!

Takes about ten minutes to walk inn to Bournemouth from this hotel so it’s perfect. We stayed for two nights In a family room. Rooms are basic- no tea and coffee in the rooms because of Covid but the staff will make you a tray and you can enjoy in the lounge or your room. We used the swimming pool and gym you just booked your slot the night before. We had a few drinks in the bar one evening, bottle of wine was fine and reasonable. Hotel felt Covid safe and clean. We didn’t have breakfast this time as we were out early exploring but it looked a good set up
