So I stayed at this grand hotel last week. I was with a coach party. I had been looking forward to a holiday in Bournemouth (first time visit) for months and I had looked at some pictures of this hotel before coming. My first impressions of this place was it looked well maintained and certainly what you would expect for... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times before and I booked the same room. The room is extremely spacious and I had a panoramic view of the sea. I only had room and breakfast but the breakfasts were enjoyable other than the fact they kept burning my toast. The problem was sorted but I had to make a point... More

We came to this hotel for our first ever break away from home with my 19 month old daughter. From the start we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We had requested a fridge in the room and a cot. We had a room on the 3rd floor giving a perfect view of the sea opposite (almost... More

I had a lovely room; spacious, well equipped with a stunning view over the bay. I had amazing facials and massages with Michelle in the spa. The heated outdoor and indoor pools are a real plus. Most of the hotel staff were friendly and efficient, but there were one or two exceptions with staff in the dining room, where at... More

My friends and I decided to try out the Carlton's afternoon tea yesterday afternoon. As we entered the hotel the lady at the front desk was very polite and smart so first impressions were fine. We entered the bar area and asked the man behind the bar if we could have afternoon tea. Unfortunately his English was very poor (He... More

Lovely large room overlooking the sea, king sized bed and sofa and armchair. Really lovely friendly and helpful staff and good food. All this made up for the fact the weather was dull and wet for most of our stay.

I'll start by saying we stayed at this hotel because we attended a wedding here,and we didn't stay here by choice. We came in the back entrance as we had a car to park, went up to reception, told them we were with the wedding party and would check in later (we didn't really have time at that point). This... More

The sad thing about my experiences at the Menzies Carlton Hotel in Bournemouth this weekend (31 Aug 2014 for 1 night) is that the overall feeling could be addressed quite easily if staff were trained to smile, make eye contact and act like the customer exists as a person. The Building itself is old but this in itself should be... More

Absolutely lovely. Huge clean beautifully decorated room. Safe secure surroundings. 5. Mins from beach. Variety of breakfast. Family rooms were very spacious. Staff very helpfully. Definately going back for a few more nights. Perfect for weekends away. You can get cheaper rooms at other hotels, however pay extra here and you will have an experience you won't forget. Plus heated... More
