“freindly welcome and all round lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2011

very pleasant stay, both welcome and room was warm and homely. bed was soooooo comfy. breakfast was very yummy also.
great location, very near the beaches and shops (could walk there if you wanted). we can imagine it would be an even better stay in the summer.
peter and sandra were very helpful when they offered to help with car when it went wrong.
very friendly atmosphere and we loved the cats!!!!
the croydon would be the first place we would look at staying again if we came to bournemouth.

Me and my wife, spent the third week of September 2010 at the Croydon hotel. We simply loved it. The owners Sandra and Peter were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious, and the room was nice and cosy and the Super King size bed was marvellous. We had RELIABLE wifi internet access in the room. We had a nice seaview from our room too.

in town for a conference at the university and I had the top floor room with a great view down the axial street to the ocean. newer bath facility en suite. very personable and flexible owners. very good 'full english breakfast' in a modest lower level breakfast room. plenty of great shops and commercial nearby and close to beach and parks for walks.

bournemouth itself was a bit of a disappointment- a bit ragged, but this base made it a pleasure to be in the town. a superior value for the price. easy free parking on nearby streets.

We called them to check if we had enough space in our room for a travel cot and Sandra very kindly accommodated us and gave a us a lovely big room with sea view.
Unfortunately this is on the top floor and as it is an old building, up some steep stairs but it wasn't too much of a problem.
Rooms were clean and equiped with and some basic toiletries which was a nice surprise.
Our bath room was a bit on the small side with a shower and very small basin which we had trouble getting the kettle under but the ground floor room was ok.
Hot water was abit inconsistant in our shower and there are no power points for shaver / electric tooth brush but Sandra provided a converter so do ask if you need anything!
We didn't realise we had to book a time slot for breakfast so was told it would be 8am as other guests had booked 9am. This isn't really a big issue but would have like a later breakfast was we were looking for a bit of a lie in!
Had full English Breakfast which was nice but very small portion and as my husband didn't like to ask for second helping, I asked on his behalf although I think some will be too embarrased to ask. So maybe they can give guests a choice of large or small portion.
On street parking was a bit of hassel as there are so many hotels and guest houses in the area with the same problem but at least it's free.
Be careful to park as near to the kerb as possible as my sister's car got scratched and dented by a passing van. She was parked around the corner on St Michael's road.
Location of the hotel is very good once we found our way about.
All in all, this hotel is good value for money. It's clean, rooms are fairly spacious, nice owners and in a very good location for the beach and city centre.

We stayed at the Croydon for a long weekend stay with out Daughter. We was given an en suite room which was decorated lovely.
The hotel was within walking distance from the sea, shops, garden and BIC.
Breakfast you was lovely and Sandra and Peter could not have been anymore helpful and welcoming.
