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.
