A beautiful Edwardian hotel with bags of character and charm and lovely staff. We stayed in a premier Deluxe room which was huge and had its own balcony with separate eating and seating areas. King size comfy bed, large flat screen tv, fridge, hairdryer, iron and everything we needed including a generous hospitality tray. A large bathroom with a beautiful big deep bath, overhead shower and plenty of hot water - best bath I've had in years! We really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi and had both all to ourselves on the Friday evening. The buffet breakfast was good and tasty. The staff were friendly helpful and informative and a credit to the hotel. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back!
Good hotel, nice surroundings and central. Room was clean and pleasant. Door key failed every time I left the room, but hotel staff really helpful - especially Miguel :) Overall had a good trip and would stay again (although probably not in room 2!)
I really love this hotel and having family in Bournemouth means we stay in Bournemouth quite often and I nearly always make sure I’m staying at this hotel. It oozes class and the staff are always really friendly and the food good. It is also in a great location. This time however I noticed a few things that need looking at with a fresh pair of eyes. Our bed was really uncomfortable. We made reception aware of this and within 2 hours a brand new bed was in place. No complaints on how this was handled but should it have been like this in the first place? Also, there was no mattress protector. I was just on a thin sheet on the mattress. The swimming pool area is always a winner, cosy and great for kids and the water is always warm, however the chairs looked grubby, there was some dirt around the jacuzzi. The sheer fact that the clock was showing the wrong time showed to me that this area is not reviewed very regularly. All in all I’m still in love with this hotel, however I just think there seems too much to do and not enough people to go around and do what’s needed. Parking I think is very steep but you make that choice beforehand so you park knowing you’ll be charged. If you like the oldy worldy feel then this is the hotel for you. It has a lovely feeling to it but I could be tempted to look around which is a shame.
