Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Very good hotel for reasonable price. I just didn't like windows in the bathroom. Its kind of odd to have shower in the glass shower cabin just in front of the window. I don't think people from outside or other hotels will stare but anyway would prefer more privacy. Room was clean and light, staff was friendly. Breakfast includes many...

We've just returned from a weekend in Bournemouth and spent 1 night in the Ocean Beach hotel and was surprised at how nice it was! When we arrived there was no where to park so we paid to park on the road for an hour whilst we sorted out check in and the bags. Check in was quick and easy...

The hotel was very nice, the room was perfect for the 2 of us. It was very clean and the shower was lovely. The hotel staff was very kind and attentive, couldn't of asked for more. The only negative I would say is parking was very limited and the parking on the road was quite pricey, would of been nice...

Room was of a reasonable standard and 15 minutes to town, which was a bonus. Room was good value for money and was clean, although only had the bare minimum; the room had no fridge and the shower was a little faulty at first. Staff were very pleasant and, although we did not eat in the restaurant, the food looked...

Dear JP5697, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Sorry to hear you had an issue with your shower initially. Unfortunately, like any other 3 start hotel we do not offer fridge facilities in our rooms. Good comments about the staff and location of the hotel. Please allow me to disagree with certain comments about the hotel....

As first time customers at the hotel we were impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The catering was of a high standard and it was unfortunate that we did not have time to try the spa facilities.

Got a 2night B&B plus 1 evening meal. The hotel is well placed on the east cliff and close to Bournemouth pier and the city center. Breakfast is buffet style with full English and continental on offer. The usual tea, coffee and juice are available. The evening meal was a set 3 course menu which was ok. There's a pizzeria,...

We stayed for a night over Easter. Great atmosphere, the spa was fantastic and special mention to Rosella and Kathrine , top quality spa. In comparison to other hotels in the area and to the sisters hotel, this is by far the nicer and more modern. However the price range (170 the night) it was too much for the area,...

Dear laucarloni83, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. In general great comments about the hotel. I understand that you might have found the hotel a bit expensive. It all depends on offer and demand. Because of the Easter holidays Bournemouth is usually fully booked and this obviously makes the prices go higher than usual. During other...
