The food was quiet good, and staff were friendly, unfortunately there wasn't much else that was good. WIFI Rubbish, TV only 2 channels, balcony dirty with cobwebs and seagull droppings, unable to run a room bill had to pay for each drink separately, the price charged was a rip off, this hotel is not worth more than £100/room/night. Felt they were taking advantage of the staycation and jacking up prices, and they can't cite cleaning as the reason. Hotel has not been updated since the 70's probably, so will not be booking this hotel again.

A lot of money for a basic bit run down room. Your paying for the location right on the beach. The hotel could do with some TLC.

It is situated right on a beautiful clean fine sandy beach with views across to Old Harry Rocks on one side and the IOW in the other direction. Rooms on the other side of the building have views over to Brownsea island. The breakfast buffet was good The dinner buffet was very disappointing due to lack of choice and blandness especially at the price of £25 per person.

On the beach, overall...

Great location, room with sea view was clean but rather dated. Exterior beach bar area dirty. Children's soft play was very old a ripped. Overall hotel is very old. Great location.
