We stayed at the Wessex hotel for two nights. The hotel is comfortable and clean, but a little dated in the decor. The breakfasts were great, varied and served fresh. We had room 348, which has a bedroom and sitting room, which was great. We kept the windows open all the time as the weather was warm. We didn’t notice... More

We stayed at the Wessex for a last minute long weekend. Although the decor of our room was dated it was clean and spacious. No batteries in the TV remote which was a bit annoying, but then again you don't go away for the weekend to watch TV the whole time. Breakfast was very nice, although watch out for the... More

We found the staff very helpful and all spoke English. A pathway opposite the hotel lead down to the town and beach. we dined in the hotel a couple of... More

Usually have an excellent time in Bournemouth, however this time could not have been any worse. Firstly,we dined at the Italian restaurant, the food was good, however, I asked the waiter for some pesto with my meal and the waiter looked at me blankly as if it didn't exist. The restaurant was cramped and noisy. The room was a totally... More

Our room was very clean and was very spacious. Coffee making facilities in the room and toiletries in the bathroom. The breakfast was excellent and we could have as much as we wanted. We would definitely recommend this hotel to travellers

The Wessex Hotel was a nice hotel, a little dated but the location is its best feature. The room was a comfortable size and the bathroom was large, we did however have several holes in the towels. Breakfast was ok, nothing to shout about and the plates were EXTREMLEY hot! I had to wrap several tissues around the rim of... More

Just had a long weekend at The Wessex again and this time we booked an extra night from the Sunday to the Monday at a deal rate - thank you for that. People are right in what they say regarding the decor and that the hotel is in need of refurbishment however these things all take time and I believe... More
