The venue itself is super. Quirky decor, heated seats outside, live music, busy but not overcrowded. Unfortunately, mister heavily tattooed, ponytailed barman seemed to think he was far too important to actually want to do his job. He was surly & unfriendly; when I ordered some food, I made the mistake of asking if there were any sauces, to which...

We went to this hotel for a weekend break having found it on a 2 night deal. Upon arrival we were greeted and told our room was almost ready but in fairness we were 3 hours early. When we got to our room to find it decorated very tastefully and comfortably, lovely spacious en-suite with a very good shower over...

Most friendly and enthusiastic welcome from Charlotte when we arrived. Very comfortable room with excellent en-suite featuring the most powerful shower and luxury toiletries. They also went the extra mile with the in room tea and coffee facilities.. My partner and I were most impressed with an excellent 5 star breakfast served by friendly and efficient staff. We also enjoyed...

Peaceful environment - we were there on a Monday to Wednesday. Superb dinner and breakfast. Fantastic cocktails with great chat. Staff unfailingly friendly and relaxed. I've given 4 stars as its not super slick...

Nearly two years since we last stayed here and pleased to report absolutely no drop in quality. Ideal location to crash after a gig at Bournemouth O2 Academy. Room comfortable and well equipped, staff friendly and efficient. So relaxing sitting in the enclosed terrace during a rainstorm, enjoying the individually heated seats. All meals amazing, the British Non-Nachos are a...

The room we had was beautiful & comfortable. The only problem was that it is at the front of the hotel where the smokers come out & we couldn't have our window open because of the noise. We were also there on the live music night which doesn't finish until 11 so if you want to be asleep early, maybe...

We went for dinner at Urban Beach last night and the food, service and atmosphere were exceptional! There were meant to be 12 in our party but due to unforeseen circumstances there ended up being only 3 of us. Nothing was too much trouble and we ended up being seated on a nicer cosier table. All of the staff were...
