In early December there are so many hotels in Bournemouth to choose from that we decided to book through Travelzoo and having stayed in hundreds of usually four star hotels in the UK, and beyond, we were pleasantly surprised by the Park Central Hotel. It is located 100 yards from the coast with partial sea views from our room and within easy walking distance to the shops (unfortunately). The reception area is small but quite suitable for the number of bedrooms the hotel has to offer, and is staffed by very pleasant and helpful receptionists portraying a welcoming smile.
Our room was on the second floor but with a hotel lift it isn't a problem. The room was very comfortable, with a large comforfortable bed, separate clothing area, desk/business area, and an ensuite with shower and bath. The room was spotlessly clean and relaxing, although some guests may be slightly perturbed with the close proximity of the main road. However, this wasn't a problem for us with the good soundproofing double glazing. The restaurant and bar are well worth a visit too.
Is there a negative? Well, only if you arrive by car, as the hotel has a few reserved parking spaces at the car park opposite (£11.00 for overnight parking) which are totally inadequate for a medium sized car, or larger. With my car door pressed firmly against the next car I struggled to gain access to my car.
Would we stay again? Yes but would need alternative car parking.
Date of stay: December 2018

Recovering after surgery I found the hotel ideally situated for the gardens, pier and main beach, I was delighted to have a sea view in a very comfortable room and enjoyed eating in the Crab restaurant. The staff were cheerful and helpful. Having been to several hotels in Bournemouth this is certainly my favourite and I would come again.

This was our third visit to the hotel and as on our previous visits we were not disappointed, especially with the complimentary room upgrade.
The hotel has a great location to be able to walk within a few minutes to the beach/pier, gardens and the town centre.
All the staff are very welcoming and happy to give assistance where needed. Breakfast was good with hot and cold choices. An added bonus is that the hotel offer the option of parking at the BIC.

Located right opposite the BIC, which is great if going to a show. Everything was of a reasonable standard. Very good breakfast. Parking in the BIC car park organised by the hotel. Very helpful and pleasant staff.

They were very flexible with us but I think it depends how busy the hotel is. Parking is from midday for 24 hours.
