Room was cold. Radiators too small for room. Heating was turned off during evening. Resorted to requesting fan heaters to heat up room.

Dear Guest, We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused by the lack of heating in your room. As nothing was mentioned to us upon departure, we thought that we have resolved your problem, shame that we were not aware that this wasn't the case. Kind regards,

So happy we chose this hotel, as the hotel itself was just gorgeous & in a great location for us. The staff were really friendly & the breakfast was delicious! Couldn't ask for anything more! We will definitely be staying here again.

Rooms nice, services disappointing

The rooms are quite nice, although not sound proof and we did get woken by a hoover very early on and people in the middle of the night. The bar not operating and the breakfast wasnt up to the standard you expect for how much you pay. Seems they are trying to save costs in many ways, affecting the customer experience.

not a hotel should be a b & b

Pros: Well decorated and comfortable
Cons: To be advertised as what it is and a coked breakfast should be included
Location: Good location easy access to town which has plenty of good restaurants and bars
Your company is selling this as a hotel but it now does not have a restaurant or bar evevlow it is still advertised on the outside of the property.It is a overpriced B&B and we suffered noise and room uncleaned.We have opened a dispute with you as this was a gift weekend for my wife case ID (R.E.M.:M-19263809).Booking reference 7316823054228 Regards Chris

Thank you for your response, We are now under new ownership and trade as Derby Manor Boutique Guesthouse. I am very disappointed that you think we are overpriced and if you research for rates in the area you will find that we are competitive. I was not aware that you had a noisy night stay and would ask that you contacted us direct with regards this issue. Best Regards, David W.

Christmas break

We wanted to stay near the coast for Christmas and this hotel was ideally located in Bournemouth. Very comfortable and the staff could not do enough for us. Thankyou :)
