It is such a shame that this pub just does not get the idea of good customer service. It is not rocket science after all. Even a simple task like ordering a few drinks is not only extremely long and painfully slow, but the staff have an uncanny habit of choosing to serve their preferred patrons over anybody else, no...

Sunday drinks. After bad weather for a few days, the sun shone and everybody was out in force on a Sunday. Unfortunately the Pub was not prepared for this. No Beer and no staff. Absolute chaos. Dirty glasses and plates everywhere. What a shame as this Pub has been refurbished and could be a real gem! Needs a total overhaul...

Expensive stay with no breakfast included in the price. We stayed in the family room but the shower only a trickle and no hot water from the shower. Also no double glazing so quite noisy at night. Location is good and the beaches are beautiful.

I was booked in to this hotel by my boss, so had no imput on the choosing of it. On their web page the pictures show a bath (not in my room) the tv either told me there was no signal or just a pixalated the screen. The WIFI did not work either. No telephone, no drawers for clothing just...

Have stayed before with no problems. But not happy with the room this time. Only had a shower, & not a bath like before. Not easy to shower a baby or a toddler that was staying with me & constant loud noise from hand dryer in public toilets below our room going off every few minutes until midnight. Will make...

Staff & food great but bedrooms in severe need of updating - quite small in general and no DVD in family room. Bathrooms are dreadful - old and outdated with yellowing tiles, peeling stained bath and non existent shower pressure, not worth the cost at £115 per night unless these are modernised which is a pity as the rest of...

Arrived Friday for the Air show and what a weekend. The staff was very good to say how busy the pub was the meals are very good and cheap and nicely presented. They tried very hard to keep it clean wiping the tables clean and collecting the glasses but I thought they done very well. The breakfast was superb great...

Stayed for 2 nights to see the air show. Whilst in a good spot it was overpriced for the quality of accommodation. It is definitely a basic 3 star and at £120 a night not worth it. Although it has some parking on site this is not reserved for guests so was always full with people parking there to go...

I have stayed here with a work colleague, Monday to Friday for the last 3 weeks due to working in Bournemouth. The accommodation was was clean, if a little dated but perfectly satisfactory. One room was at the rear of the building and you could hear the coolers kicking in with the windows open but it didn't stop me sleeping....
