We’re just a five minute walk from Bournemouth town centre and a few minutes from the beach. And only 1.5 miles from Bournemouth train station.

We have 66 parking spaces available at our hotel, and although this can get quite busy at peak times, we’re lucky to have a long stay car park just a five minute walk away.
