“Awesome Hotel & A1 Service”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

What an awesome place. I have just returned from the Applewood Hotel after my stag weekend. We wanted a hotel that wasnt expensive but offered us good value for money and a creature comforts. As most of our party was in there 30's we are all accustomed to nice surroundings and Nigel and his team delivered on all counts.

On Arrival at the hotel Nigel showed us round and checked the rooms were adequate which they all were, his bar was fully stocked and very reasonably priced. We ended up staying at the hotel for a fair few drinks as it was so welcoming!!

The Breakfast was a1 and the full english is worth getting up for. They also arent scared if u ask for an extra rasher of bacon or your eggs sunny side down!!

We were cautious as both nights we where there we were in fancy dress the second night dressed as smurfs in blue paint. Nigel assisted us and never got funny with what we were doing..

Downsides - None!!!

This hotel may be a 5 minute walk further than some other hotels but at the price you pay its worth it. I look forward to coming again with my partner as i was so impressed!!

Room Tip: There are a few rooms that are renovated and they are worth asking for. However other rooms were all...

Fantastic hotel which is more than good value for money. Staff were friendly and made you feel welcome from the onset. Excellent facilites and a good outside space to enjoy some drinks in the sunshine. They recommended good places to eat and even booked us a table before we went out. Great stag location and excellent place to stay !!

We have just returned from two days at this hotel. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, the room was very clean and the breakfast was excellent. We hope to return in the near future. Maureen and George.

I have to say that the Applewood hotel was excellent in every way and I would recommend it for anyone wanting a nice hotel for the weekend.

It is located a short walk from both the town centre and the West Cliff beach and the staff and in particular the Hotel Manager Nigel are very accommodating and will assist you with anything that you need.

The rooms are all very nice and the beds are comfortable along with tea and coffee making facilities in the room you can look forward to a nice cooked breakfast in the morning.

There is also parking available on site or a Pay ad Display directly opposite.
Nigel and his team made our stay very very nice indeed.

We stayed with a hen party group. Hotel was clean, owners and staff were very nice and made you feel very welcome. Rooms were of a high standard, and Included everything you could ask for including iron, ironing board and hair dryer. Breakfast was lovely with a variety of options to choose from. All in all a great time had by all. Thank you very much. We will be returning the next time we are in bournemouth.
