    Breakfast restaurant was so bright and clean made me feel wide awake! and the food was all fresh and very well laid out, cooked buffet food was served to us by a very happy to help you young lady with an excellent attitude so we didn't have to lift those heavy lids on the cooked food, bacon was first class as was the evening meal, all staff were genuingly sweet, love this hotel very much will come again when in Bournemouth. Thank you

    Good breakfast and very comfortable bed

    Lack of parking for such a large hotel - and the 'first come first served' policy made parking rather stressful

    Breakfast was very good and typical of a four star rated hotel. Staff very courteous and helpful. The hotel is very nicely decorated and clean.

    The duvet on the bed was too thick and we were too warm in bed waking up from time to time perspiring despite the fact that the central heating radiator was not on therefore not circulating any heat. The cost of the room with breakfasts for the two of us was slightly in excess of £180.00 per night which was more than we have ever paid anywhere in the world for hotel accommodation. We were provided with a small bottle of drinking water on arrival but were charged £4.00 for a bottle of water in the dining room one evening plus £24.00 for a bottle of wine. Overall we did not rate the hotel highly for value for money.

    Excellent spa with swimming pool, excellent breakfasts, extra friendly staff

    Parking wasn't a problem, because we left the car there and used the bus, but there could be a problem if you were taking the car out

    Good size twin room, and a nice large clean bathroom.

    The spa area was quite dated and tired as was some parts of the hotel.
