Recently stayed at this hotel. Location is fantastic, a nice stroll through the park to the shops and made nicer with the markets etc. Staff at hotel were incredibly friendly and attentive, nothing too much trouble. The room was basic but ok, thought he view was not great at all for us. The shower in the room was great, nice...

We booked this venue as it was opposite the BIC and we had tickets to see the Lightning Seeds and Madness. The greeting upon arrival was very good and it was nice to see people really engaging with customers. We booked a sea view and room 310 is perfect for that. The rooms are huge and have everything you need....

A night away because we were attending a show at the BIC, it was the perfect location with easy pre booked parking opposite the hotel. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful and we were delighted to be upgraded to a lovely large sea view room. Great bed, lots of hot water, comfortable well organised room layout. We enjoyed supper...

The good: A nice hotel, friendly staff, well located especially for the BIC. Not far from bars and restaurants. Room was comfortable with a separate sitting room. The bad: I thought the giant key fob thing died in the 90s but apparently not! A bit inconvenient. Breakfast finished at half 9 which after an evening out was about an hour...

This is a friendly, comfortable hotel in an excellent position opposite the Bournemouth International Centre and close to the town centre and the seafront. Allocated car parking is in the multi storey car park opposite the hotel at a reasonable extra charge. The in-house 'Crab Restaurant' menu offers a wide variety of seafood and other dishes plus a good breakfast...

We were upgraded to a signature room on check in which was huge! The view was spectacular. Part of the deal was dinner in the first night which was nearly very good. The starter and pudding were both excellent, the main course was very disappointing. Breakfast was cooked freshly to order and therefore lovely and hot. The hotel is very...

Our family stayed in Bournemouth before we sailed from Southampton and enjoyed a three night stay at the Park Central Hotel. We had three rooms including one large suite, a double, and a single. All three were perfectly clean, had comfy beds, good extra seating, and good bathrooms. We enjoyed the easy access to The Crab restaurant including breakfast daily...

My Second visit to Park Central. The staff could not be more helpful and all rooms are classically decorated with great real wood furniture etc. Breakfast is superb. Real quality bacon and sausages, not cheap cuts. You won't be disappointed. I've stayed lots in Bournemouth and you will not find an overall better experience.
