We have stayed here before and although I believe there has been a change in management, the hotel still seems much as it always has been - slightly old-fashioned but clean and comfortable. We find the location good, as we like to walk and don't mind the steep slopes - we can go either to Boscombe or Bournemouth centre, or down to the sea front.
The room was comfortable, if in need of a small repairs; the food was excellent but the service was rather slow and the serving staff, who were all charming, seemed to find it hard to cope with a large party. The indoor pool was beautifully warm to bathe in, but the surrounding needed a few repairs.
This is how it is - it could be a lovely hotel, but there are 'buts' in every category. It needs a number of 'tweaks' to raise it's profile , so overall at the moment it can only be 'average'.
