With the outside temperature ranging from around minus 4 degress C to plus 3 degrees C, I would have expected the hotel heating to be going at full blast - NOT THE CASE - when we checked in at about 3.00pm our room was but cold and were advised the heating would come on about 4.30pm.
What should have been an enjoyable weekend was spoilt by a freezing cold bedroom, only marginally rectified (after several complaints) by provision of an electric convector heater.
Overall view: an hotel not to any adequate standard as regards heating, in need of refurbishment externally, food and service of mediocre standard. As regards *** rating, 2** at best and that's being generous.
There are many hotels in Bournemouth of 4**** rating and a few of 5***** rating - suggest you try one of those.
