        • Family with children
          9.6

          Our children loved the nice, heated swimming pool and the softplay area!

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          It was a nice hotel - average services.

          Staff not too sympathetic to problems.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          the staff were really nice,the breakfast was lovely,and it was nice to take thedog. the pool was sooo nice and warm.

          if i had to moan, our side of the hotel was too hot, and decor was dated!

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          All round impressed with this hotel, staff were friendly and efficient, breakfast very good value for money with a wide range of options. Room was clean and comfortable in good decorative order.

          The hotel was about half hour walk from the centre of Bournemouth, however there is a very good bus service a short stroll away which we made use of.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          The room was very spacious and the bunk beds were ideal for the children. The breakfast was first class, nicely cooked and plenty to choose from.

          The pool area was a bit of a let down and the changing rooms need serious work doing to them.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The staff are efficient and always busy. It is a well run hotel.Breakfast is buffet style , and goodthe staff there are particularly helpful.

          There is a charge of £7.50 for dogs. We have a very small dog, and we not use the food they supply. We take room freshners, protective coverings, and feel that £7.50 a night is a bit excessive.This charrge seems to vary between Forestdale Hotels

        • Family with children
          4.6

          Thought the pool was a good size! Excellent location close to the sea and town centre, aswell as the crazy golf and gardens!!

          Think they need some retraining on customer service!!

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The staff were very friendly, very helpful and all round lovely. The hotel was fantastic for the children, with lots for them to do when we weren't out and about and gave me plenty of opportunity to read my book while they were occupied. It is 30 minutes walk from the beach which I love, I have always loved Bournemouth and come very regularly, I will definitely be using this hotel again. We had breakfast each morning which was plentiful and very tasty. We only ate our evening meal in the hotel on our last night but so wished we had more often, the food was delicous and very reasonably priced with a childrens menu for the younger ones. Our general feelings are great hotel!

          The shower in our room was not very good, very hard to turn on then to set the temperature. The room was very clean but a little tatty. My name on my booking was quite clear yet they spelt my name wrong and gave me the wrong title. We were in a family room for four people, cearly stated but only had two towels and two cups, biscuits etc, this was rectified when asked but it's the little things which make a great experience a fantastic one!

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Good standard of hotel, and excellent value with the Booked.net deal. Large and comfortable family room, great for family of four. Polite and helpful staff, substantial choice at breakfast, surprisingly large swimming pool for a hotel. Had to change rooms because cold water supply was not working in our first room, but change was offered quickly and efficiently, and staff made sure we were happy with the second room. Located in a quiet and classy part of Bournemouth: a drive from the central pier area, but managed to walk to restaurants near the University area in the evening.

          Had we been staying for a full week or more, might have had trouble storing clothes for 4 of us (had a wardrobe and 4 drawers - probably fine for 2, but tricky if a whole family were staying for a full holiday). But I might still choose to put up with that, as the room, hotel and pool were so nice.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          It was a very good hotel, a fair price and the staff were helpful and friendly

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Good breakfast, very clean room, nice and quiet; very close to the beach, castle of Corfe is also quite close.

          Very old lifts.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Indoor Swimming Pool, Room Size Good, Food Good, Staff Friendly & Quiet location

          Could hear the music from the function room at night

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          the laid back atmosphere

          as there were 14 of us staying at the hotel that weekend and it was nice that we could return after an evening out to still use the hotel bar, the only thing really letting the night down was the fact that you had to keep going to reception each time you wanted to be served as the bar was not constantly attended especialy after 11pm. and i'm sure that if it had been a lot more money would have been spent!!

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Foyer and bar have pleasant old world style. Breakfast/dining room nicely laid out, pleasant atmosphere. Large comprehensive breakfast buffey bar. However may have to wait a little too long for "special" orders, eg poached eggs! Wide range of room sizes right including large family rooms sleeping upto 5 people (using bunk beds). Has large swimming pool. Wide range of function/meeting rooms, including one with large dance floor. Location quiet residential area. Reception staff were very helpful, respectful and patient when handling complaints.

          We were not initially offered the room that we had booked in advance, despite verbal telehone confimation. Room quality not good. One standard double we were offered was small, rather shabby with a bed mattress with very prominent springs. Rooms tend to be very hot at night. Don't accept room 351 !!!! It is a large family room (sleeping 5) on the top floor of the building. Window overlooks a very noisy extractor fan on the kitchen roof which is only switched off between 2am and 7am. On the roof immediately above the room there is a heavy duty air conditioning unit which also starts up early morning causing the room to resonate and vibrate !!! sounds like a helicopter landing !!!!
