Many now refer to Bournemouth as London by the sea, situated on the south coast of England with extensive road, rail and air links, and one of the United Kingdoms warmest climates, this town truly is a dream location.

Stayed for two nights (sat, sun)... as we drove up my wife groaned and said that she'd stayed here before (about 5 years ago) on a girly weekend and it had been cr@p... anyway, parked up (plenty of spaces) and entered reception... well the whole place had been transformed since her last stay!!!

Excellent check-in service, then up to our room.

Requested sea view and wasn't disappointed, room bright, clean, beds- one double (very comfy) and one single (not used), plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space, newly refurbished bathroom.

Although all rooms are non-smoking, there was a balcony with two chairs and an ashtray...

Central heating Ok when the room got a bit cold..

All the staff that we met were really friendly, though can't recall an english accent among them...

Very nice public areas, tastefully decorated and very atmospheric... around the (outdoor) pool area they have created a nice ambience with a red/black/silver theme, large awning and patio heaters for when the temperature drops...

Didn't do a main meal, but the menu looks good, had a barsnack and it was just what was needed, breakfast buffet style but absolutely no problems with it.

Only down side is that they advertise an indoor pool and leisure centre with sauna etc, this is next door at the second of the three hotels that form the chain in this group...

All in all a good experience, would stay there again.
