    The location

    It was far too hot - we could not regulate the heating and towel rail. Unfortunately the windows did not open properly either.The hotel definitely is not environmentally friendly

The staff were all very nice and friendly, The swimming and spa complex was excellent and very clean. The breakfast buffet was really good plenty of choice. All the staff did their best to make our stay memorable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Very good

    A typically classic british seaside hotel, perfectly located at the beach, close to the pier and to the city center an park. The indoor pool (free to use) at the beach side is very nice, and I also apreciated the presense of the other leisure facilitie, like gym, sauna and steam bath; (altough all of them a little (too) small.

    The breakfast is relatively expensive, and the decoration of the rooms, especially of the bathrooms, is a little (too) old dated. The service was less than expected, and also the cleanliness of the leisure facilities was very poor; dress room and showers were really dirty and unhygenic, and also the sauna's (bad smell) and spa were not so tidy as expected.

    The superior room was absolutely wonderful, the views and the convenience for the garden and beach were first rate. The Gym was also excellent and the staff very helpful.

    The view from the bedroom window and the distant sound of the waves breaking on the shore.

    the hotel is outdated and very, very tired. Shabby without the chic.The swimming pool was not heated - we were advised it was faulty but others said it hasn't been heated for ages.

    We like the polite staff and relaxing ambience of the hotel

    Very disapointed at the pool being out of action,so missed out on the hours of liesure time we normaly spend at the hotel,when complained to duty manager,was informed "it was a added BONUS"when booking

    Very good

    The hotel was well located overlooking the beach and seafront, and the staff were very helpful.

    The single room was not air conditioned and the windows could only be opened a couple of inches as a result it was uncomfortable sleeping as it was to warm in the room, also noisy in the main corridor outside the room until the middle of the night.

    Good

    Friendly hotel staff, good quality food, there is car park and very good location

    A double room was very small and narrow, there was not an air conditioner system, minibar did not work and it was empty, an old passenger's lift did work very loud, so we did hear it every time if someone used it!

    The position, room over looking the sea, breakfast.

    The bar service was appalling. The staff are untrained, unmotivated and unmanaged.

    Guest rating

    It is in easy walking distance of both the beach and the town so was very conveniently placed. Kerry on Reception was an excellent staff member who oversaw our room change.

    The accommodation and furnishing in the rooms and the public areas are shabby and in desperate need of refurbishment. The chairs in the public lounge are grubby. Most of the staff were poorly trained and unable to cope with the numbers of guests at the hotel. Breakfast was chaotic with tables being cleared before guests had finished, food being delivered to the wrong tables and in one instance, eggs were given then removed with the waitress saying ' Oh they aren't yours!'. It took fifteen minutes to be served at the bar and on another occasion the drink I ordered was kept in the 'other' bar and had to be retrieved from there. Wine not chilled. Management was chaotic. This is a hotel in crisis.

    Superb

    Wonderful location overlooking the sea. This is a Bournemouth landmark and has seen better days. But it is still gracious and relaxing.Staff friendly and professional.

    Should be a five star hotel and would be if money was spent. In the meantime ,it is ideal for a quality break in grand surroundings, but lower your expectations and you won't be disappointed.

    Really lovelly room, good selection of food at breakfast, and handy for bus network for days out. Beach only 10 mins easy walk from hotel.

    Room was a bit too hot, could'nt have window open at night due to traffic noise as my room fronted onto main road. Only small gripe though, as the double glazing did good job of deadning the traffic noise.
