... names!! What a little gem this place is. Firstly is the little village of Lulworth which was so quaint but we couldn't stop as the streets were too narrow and once again there is nowhere to park a campervan but I'm sure we will go back there tomorrow. Then we drove up through the caravan park where we are staying tonight to get to a large parking area from where you can out onto the cliffs and look down into the ...
This morning I woke up and set off to Hyde Park for my 5-mile run. Running is such an amazing way to explore a city! Along the way I saw the Russian and Indian embassies, the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain, the Albert Memorial (commissioned by Queen Victoria when her beloved husband died), Kensington Palace, and a statue of Peter Pan given to Kensington Gardens by J.M. Barrie himself. After packing up, catching the ...
No chatting at breakfast-- the TV was on. Left at 9.15. Found the way out of town fairly easily--it started uphill on a cross country track through the farmland on a gravel track-rough but no sand-- then followed the little lanes up and up onto the Dorset Downs, to the *********ument at the highest point. It was more ups and downs after the drop down from the top to Bridport. Stopped there for some lunch at Joe's Cafe. I read in the paper about the hailstorms at ...
... craft class, very disorganised, and the first lecture, on globalisation, which was dry but interesting. Why do some lecturers just read from a script? Tonight, Sunday, it's the first formal night and the welcome cocktail party. More food!! Dinner prawn mouse, lobster bisque, lamb and crepe suzette. This was after three glasses of sparkling wine at cocktail party.!! Just spent £50 on a wifi access card. That gives me 300 minutes and I hope that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Queens Hotel Bournemouth
I stayed in the Queen's while in town for a week on business. I have to say that there were up's and down's during the week. Obviously an older building, the hotel is not suitable for disabled customers as there are lots of stairs and one very tiny, rather dilapidated lift!
We arrived at 8.00 to find our booking had been lost. The room we were given was obviously only sold as a single normally - as the bed was not full sized, the room was small, and there was only one set of towels.
My husband and I spent a short break here recently. It was just ok.
I stayed at the queens for 2 nights with my girlfriend and another couple. We all enjoyed everything in the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and were keen to make our stay good.
We ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and I'm no master chef but the food was great! and I love my food.
Room was huge and had a nice feel to it. Pool was gorgeous and sauna was nice too.. I didnt make it into the gym because the short break was so I could relax! The location is good, close to beach and close to town.
Overall I couldnt fault the hotel and its location and I will definatly be going back.
Queens Hotel, Bournemouth
Hotel hot, no air conditioning except in the dining room. Rooms mediocre. No fridge, tiny towels, very thin. Poor facilities in the rooms. Staff just o.k. Most could not speak English. Would I stay here again - no.
Could do better
The room ok. The bed was lovely and comfortable. There was a terribly loud humming/buzzing noise in the bathroom when the light was swithed on. Far too loud- it hurt my ears , so I ended up using the bathroom without putting the light on, relying on the light coming from the main bedroom. I could also hear the buzzing noise from other bathrooms nearby. Prevented me from sleeping at times.
The TV in the room did not have Sky, not too hard to install. Also no fridge, I had to keep my milk outside on the window ledge!
I might consider staying there again, but would look elsewhere to start with.
stayed 3 nights on Business
location central to tourist area and near the university.
clean and plesent public area decor.
room tired and old furnishings and fittings. room very cold. not set up with internet or wifi etc.
bar drinks very expensive
food expensive, average quality and indiferent staff.
difficult to find a national chain business hotel in the town most cater for elderly tourists. against this benchmark this hotels compares favourably, but it is not by any stratch a modern business hotel.
We knew what to expect (it was our second visit, last time 3 years ago), and nothing has changed. Our room wasn't as good as before, and although the bathroom looked fresher, the room suffered from lack of natural light and felt quite dingy.
An OK hotel, but I feel that you would get better value for money elsewhere. The rooms are basic and in need of modernisation. Equally, breakfast is of a poor quality unless you fancy cold bacon sitting in fat and congealed baked beans with runny scrambled egg.
