I've been to a wedding reception here and a party.
The food at the reception was really good - it was silver service and very well done indeed. I thought the staff were great. I just think the function room was a bit too big.
Well, the party! Now this was in the other function room, has a dance floor and is a good size. The buffet was really good, all cold finger foods, and I pretty much filled my face.
The music was good but chosen by the invited 'dj'. Again, the staff were great - I had an emergency with a stocking and they found an elastic band.
All the seating is comfortable. In reception there are a few sofas where you could sleep all night. And there's sort a nook with seating where you can have drinks and chat.
I haven't stayed here, but would imagine it's comfortable, judging from the parts I've been in.
Stayed here with the family...it's cheap...lifts are scary...it's under much needed renovation...we walked to the beach in about 10 min...it could be a good property if this is just the beginning of the renovation...driving to a better area to walk around and have dinner...back from dinner and the room keys don't work!? No place to park due to added guests and construction equipment...we parked about 150m away...a bunch of foreign students running up and down the halls slamming doors.,.we really should of spent a few extra £'s...but it's one night without a/c...I tried to like it since my wife booked it.,.makes up for the 3 nights at The May Fair while we were in London...
Lovely place to have a party as the food was first class the service was just what you expected from a hotel like this. Staff were very friendly and very helpful
I been to a number of parties here and enjoyed everyone. Lovely location between Bournemouth and Boscombe, plenty of parking and warm and inviting interiors. Staff have always been friendly and the food very good. Close to bus routes if you are exploring the area and situated in a tree-lined avenue.
My good old friend came to visit us recently. They told me that the service was very good and the room was clean and comfortable. I could see the lobby and the bar area were cozy and very pleasant too, when I went there to meet them. The receptionists were very friendly when I enquried about some events like the firework displays and so on.
