This hotel is situated on the north side of Bournemouth just a few minutes from the main route in by car and a few minutes walk to the beach. There is a secure underground car park but the £16 per day is in my view expensive considering you are a resident at the hotel. The NCP next door is £15.
Check in is at 3 and they are pretty strict on that so if you are early go for a walk and a coffee.
The reception area was clean and joined the lounge area and bar which was comfortable and great for that night cap after dining out! We ate out whilst we were there except for breakfast on our last day. £15 for breakfast buffet or £10 for continental, a bit expensive but it has all the usual food available.
Staff were helpful throughout and being just a few minutes walk to the main shops, restaurants and the beach made it a great location.
