It's Not that bad however plenty of room for improvement

Ok let's be honest if you will consider this hotel that is likely because of its rates and is cheap. So crack on. I got room 124 and it cost me £45 for 2 nights I read the reviews so I knew what I was getting into. The room was clean and the house keeping were doing their best Got to give them credit. The walls of the rooms that where you got a problem you can hear people taking walking whispering. Also staff on reception even though most of them are polite I requested if I can warm up baby food I was told the restaurant people might not let me use the microwave due to health and safety. When I asked what happens to health and safety if the baby is fed cold food or no food at all. No response just a silly laugh. Other than that it was the money's worth.

Me & my daughter!

The hotel exceeded our expectations. Not the Ritz, but it was great value and ticked every box. Ok ok the food was a bit basic, and not "great", but it was OK. There are plenty of places to eat nearby in Bournemouth anyway! The pool was top and me and my daughter spent an hour a day in there. Little club room with entertainment was a bit "old hat" but it was pleasant. Location spot on 100m from cliff top/cliff lift/stairs. Overall would def go again.....I might book up Easter now !!

On arrival allocated 2 rooms in

On arrival allocated 2 rooms in the kitchen area ground floor, absolutely appalling, should never be offered to guests. When rooms refused, staff agreed with our views. Offered 2 small rooms on 4th floor, very slightly better quality. Worst hotel experience we have had when using Hotel Club. Very surprised this Hotel was a ( website)recommended'. Restaurant and Breakfast good.

The orginal price is far too overpriced

The orginal price is far too overpriced and comments on check-in was that they have never let the room at the price. I was seriously embrassed to take colleagues to this Hotel as I was not even convinced that the £60 paid was reasonable for the condition of the room.

Whilst this is an old hotel, the facilities show a little for the age but the hotel is a good, inexpensive, option if you are staying in Bournemouth. I found the room to be clean and the room facilities to be above average for the price. If you have a car expect to park on the street as on site parking is sparse though the cost to park on the surrounding streets is three punned per day. A good place to stay and the breakfast was acceptable as well. Recommended.

We were bumped from Britannina

We were bumped from Britannina to their sister hotel over the road - Heathlands. Initially tried to charge us twice. Room smelt of lemon air freshner which must have been used to hide the fact it really had not been cleaned to any standard. Bathroom was in dire need of bleach to rid it of mould and shower was little more then a trickle, after waiting 20 mins for hot water to come through the taps. Can't drink the water from the bathroom and no bottled water in the room so if you do end up staying here don't forget your own. Breakfast was little better - check that the milk is not on the turn as it was for us. Cheap - but you get what you pay for.

Hotel is in a very good location

Hotel is in a very good location and is a short walk to the beach and high street. The hotel needs lick of paint as the decor is very dated and there were damp marks on the wall in the room which i stayed. The lifts were small and could only fit 2 adults in which made it difficult to fit a child and buggy and also there was only 2 high chairs avaliable in the restaurant.
