Me and my partner stayed for the weekend and it was great service as soon as we walked in. The location is close to everything you need in Bournemouth, the only thing I would say is if you don’t like loud music, at the weekend they have the clubs downstairs open and if you wished for a quiet night in, you won’t get it here! Honestly didn’t bother us anyways but in case it does, best to check first at their rules which they do mention! Such a clean room too really spotless!

Lovely hotel. Very nice staff. Only reason I have the location a 4 star was that the music from the nightclub can be heard from the room until around 3am (on the Friday night) caused us disrupted sleep but would still visit again.
