We have stayed at several Shearings hotels all over the country. They are all of the same standards with the food provided being top of the list!
This hotel in Bournemouth we actually booked as part of a coach trip from the NW of England whereas we drove up from Devon but this worked out quite a bit cheaper so always worth looking out for.
Because we were booked as part of the trip we were allocated seats on the coach and were able to go on the included trips out during the week. These were really good as the driver was a real character and kept everyone laughing as well as being knowledgeable about the area.
If you want either a weekend or a Monday to Friday break we would definitely recommend Shearings. A relative has been abroad with Shearings too and says they are the same standards and well organised. We are going to Scotland with them later in the year!
