Great location. Close to the train station and walking distance to the beach. It was a last minute find and I was worried about how cheap it was going to be, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were a little dated which added to its charm but importantly the were clean. The lady in reception was lovely and helpful...

Visited for one night based on low price and location. It's close to the bus and railway station (5 min walk) and about 10 minutes walking to the sea front. Bournemouth centre is a good 15mins + walk. Room was okay, clean with a large bathroom. Breakfast was basic / uninspired but did the job. It's a 3 star hotel...

Very handy for Bournmouth Town Centre. Five minutes walk from the start of the bars/food area. Room was very clean, especially bathroom. Breakfast decent enough. Room was a bit hot, but ceiling fan helped. Definately use again.

We stayed at the Elstead Hotel during a week away in the Bournemouth area. I can say that we really enjoyed our stay at the Elstead. We tend to book hotels like this as we don't want 5 star accommodation, we only really use hotels for somewhere to sleep and have breakfast. I think this hotel though is extremely good...

The staff at Elstead are so competent, friendly and cooperative that I would want to go back and stay there on my next trip to Bournemouth. Granted that the furnishings and decor can be upgraded and modernized but overall the costs are reasonable, their breakfast is good, may be a bit of change in their display and variety would eliminate...

We stayed at the Elstead last weekend as a birthday treat. The hotel is in a nice, quiet part of Bournemouth and is in easy reach of the centre, which is about a 10 - 15 minute walk. Check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room was on the second floor and was clean, spacious and comfortable with plenty of wardrobe...

I stayed 3 nights at the Elstead at the start of April. The hotel is 10 mins walk from the train station but 25 mins walk from the BIC. The location is quiet and the hotel has ample car parking for residents. My single en-suite room was clean and comfortable. The TV was small the window blind and curtains good...

We arrived late afternoon after a Long drive and everything about our experience was first class beginning with the receptionist giving us a great deal with meals included, directions to nearby shops, then to the entertaining Josie in the bar and finally to the restaurant staff who couldn't do enough. Meals were great. The room was fantastic with views, space...
