Starting with the good, we arrived on a very hot day and the swimming pool was busy with lots of residence enjoying the sun. The bar overlooks the pool area and sitting out on the balcony felt very relaxing. There is ample parking space in the car park and when booking into a busy resort area like Bournemouth this is...

Booked a two night special offer through travelzoo and had the best time, the staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for us, the three course evening meal and breakfasts we received as part of the offer was of the highest quality. Would definitely stay here again if I returned to Bournemouth.

Found this deal on Travelzoo so was value for money. Room was a suite which we did not expect. Evening meal was exceptional (the bouillabaisse was out of this world). The location and views from the hotel were amazing. Staff were friendly.

Stayed here for the first time in Feb earlier this year. We signed up for the special offer emails and because it was so good in Feb we couldn't wait to stay here for another weekend break in May. Great value with dinner in the excellent restaurant included in the package (full a la carte) and an afternoon cream tea...

Spent the weekend here. The hotel itself is amazing - wood panelled rooms etc. Food was good and prices reasonable. We used the indoor pool which was quite adequate. I must mention Sam who was on duty Friday and Saturday evenings. She ensured my 86 year old dad and 4 year old grandson were well looked after. She is a...

Had a lovely day with beautiful weather. Lovely big clean bedroom with an enormous comfy bed. Great location with a lovely walk into bournmouth. Food was good my only complaint was my husband ordered the steak and was told there was none (for a Friday evening) but we would definitely stay again.

We stayed on a 2 night Travel Zoo offer. We had an enormous room on the first floor overlooking the sea. When the sun shone it was beautiful. Staff pleasant and helpful. We had a very enjoyable meal in the restautant and breakfast was good too. Good value for money.

Dear JAMES D, Thank you for posting a review. I can confirm we no longer place bottled water in the rooms unfortunately this is now a Hallmark standard across the board. I'm confused however on the no shampoo as this is still available in the rooms so I apologise for this. We hope you return again and once again thank...
