I am a very frequent traveler and am very pleased to confirm this is an absolutely perfect hotel and location which I would highly recommend (particularly couples and walkers). I had a premium room (bathroom was small but i knew that in advance). It was immaculate internally, the bed was extremely comfortable, service was personal and the evening meals were... More

We spent a long weekend in Bournemouth to watch the air show, discover Devon and Hampshire. Hotel has been refurbished and we had an excellent room, with fantastic bathroom, smart TV and delicious cooked breakfast. The manager was very kind to point out where to go and what to do. Great cocktails at the bar with nibbles, sitting in the... More

What a neat place this is. Four of us just stayed here for the Bournemouth Airshow weekend, and we couldn't have picked a better place. Just a stroll to the cliffs and down onto the sandy beach promenade. Must be a great location anytime of the year to chill-out and recharge. The hotel itself seems to have been very tastefully...

The room was of a high standard, with a wonderful view of the garden. Service at the bar and restaurant was excellent, everybody was extremely warm and friendly. Our evening meal... More

I went to the recommended Cliff House Hotel for a long weekend. I arrived to find a lovely reception and a fantastic bar which lead out to more seating and a wonderful garden. Our room was large and the beds were very comfortable. The best part was the food, bar food, Sunday lunch and filling snacks from the bar. I... More

Cliff House hotel styles itself as a "boutique hotel" and the prices appear to match their aspirations. The rooms are in the process of all being upgraded but ours was comfortable and clean. A reservation was the shower that really did not work very well because only a small amount of water was delivered slowly but the manager did apologise... More

I travel to the Bournemouth area quite frequently, and finding my usual hotel busy, selected Cliff House based on the fact it was highly recommended. Even so, I was still amazed by the fantastic service that the staff offered. When I arrived, i was warmly welcomed, and luggage whisked from my car to my room whilst I enjoyed a glass... More

Along with some friends I went to the hotel for a birthday afternoon tea. It was a nice day so could sit in the garden to enjoy the wonderful sandwiches, cakes, stunning scones & Dorset clotted cream. We also had cocktails, which were lovely. I definitely want to go back & want to go for Sunday dinner soon..
