Chose this hotel as it's dog friendly and a reasonable price. Our room was OK, warm and spacious with lovely high ceilings. Pity there was no proper shower, but the one over the bath worked well. The bar area was very comfortable but now the best part... the bar staff were absolutely smashing people. Very happy and helpful especially the... More

This was a trip using a voucher deal for a 2 night deal; we arrived to check in but our room wasn't ready although were able to leave the car whilst we had a walk around the town centre, and it was ready on our return. Location is great, handy for all the shops, restaurants, museums, and beach promenade in... More

The hotel reception area was lovely and clean. The receptionist didn't give any information on Breakfast times, or where to have breakfast nor did she explain about the WI-fi (apparently you have to get a password & username from reception) but this wasn't really a problem as there is an information booklet in the room. Lots of parking spaces and... More

I stayed here at Easter on an Amazon deal of a 2 night break, bed and breakfast with dinner on the 1st night. I only committed to a cheap deal as my husbands dementia condition fluctuates with stress and travel resulting in sometimes having to cut short our stay and return home. All I expect for such a price is... More

We wanted to visit Bournemouth and, as there was a good deal offered at the Wessex Hotel, we decided to spend a few days there. Lovely location a short walk from the Pier and miles of sandy beach. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful and we were given a lovely, large room on the ground floor. We would... More

We went on an Amazon deal, and having read the reviews we weren't expecting too much. We were pleasantly surprised from the moment we arrived at how friendly and helpful the staff were. The bar area and lounge are very pleasant, our room was much better than we were anticipating, being spotless and with everything we needed. The bathroom was... More

We went on an Amazon deal, and having read the reviews we weren't expecting too much. As everyone else says this grand old hotel needs a lotta money spent on it to bring it into the 20th century. However, we were pleasantly surprised from the moment we arrived at how friendly and helpful the staff were. The bar area and... More

We have just returned from a two night break bought via Amazon. When I booked, I warned my husband that according to a lot of Tripadvisor reviews this was going to be a cheap break and nothing more. How wrong could I be? From walking into reception on arrival until leaving this morning, we had a lovely stay. All members... More
