Stayed here with some friends while visiting Bournemouth. They don't book rooms for more than 2 so as there were 3 of us one of us had to sleep in a single room. Have to say the rooms are very dated and the bathroom facilities left something to be desired. Room was clean though and the guy on reception was...

After booking very late we were pleasantly suprised, parked just outside no issue. Friendly warm welcome. Room was clean and comfortable, with hot shower, Hotel was pretty full with a coach party but suprisingly quiet and peaceful. Well stocked bar reasonable prices, we did not try the food. Definetly stay here again.

The average age of the guests were probably in their 'later years' so found them to be very interesting which added to our enjoyment. The staff were so helpful and friendly nothing seemed to be too much trouble, not that I had any ! We took our dog and fund the location to be ideal for morning walkies. The food...

Great welcome, great value for money! Pleasant staff and front of house. Room was very comfortable, a bit dated but good for the money. Food was adequate, could improve with a little more home cooking. Enjoyed the Turkey and Tinsel festivities with friends and even managed to get a few of the other guests up to enjoy themselves. Thank you...

Was apprehensive about staying at this hotel ! Having read some pretty horrible comments. Travelled with members of the railway club NOV7th had four days here. The theme Tinsel & Turkey. Hotel and rooms clean. Staff very obliging Food very good Entertainment (2nights) also good. Since the new management took over it would appear to be well worth staying here!...

My sister and I accompanied my elderly mother and partner to the Ullswater photo for a Murder Mystery Weekend. The hotel is typical of the area, basic but adequate. It's very well located; an easy stroll down to the beautiful coastal cliffside walk, or to the great town centre or park, and a big bonus was that I could take...

A warm welcome when we arrived in our rooms in minutes. The hotel is Edwardian with some of the original features apt for a Murder Mystery! The food is good and the hotel clean and tidy.
