Excellent ..... food room and service were all very good. We had a wet but most enjoyable stay - made so good by the hotel staff and the feeling of being well cared for. We can highly recommend. Paid £110.00 for bb for 2 of us and worth every penny.

The hotel's publicity and website are very misleading. The location is good, they have parking, staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast was very good and the communal areas on the ground floor have been recently refurbished in a pleasing, contemporary, 'boutique' hotel style. I understand that some of the bedrooms have also been refurbished, but certainly not ours nor the... More

I came to Bournemouth for the first time after choosing the Anglo Swiss Hotel for its brilliant location. It's close to the beach, the town centre and the railway station. I was initially booked in to stay for a week while travelling around England & Europe but was enjoying my stay so much, I extended my stay to two weeks.... More

The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything. Had to sleep with the windows open & then was still v hot. Plus need... More

We have just retunred from a one night stay at the Anglo Swiss Hotel. Only needing a hotel for one night we weren't all that worried if it wasn't a 5 star and were looking for a pleasant reasonably priced hotel or guest house. We found the Anglo Swiss on one of the hotel search websites and it seemed to... More

I stayed at the Anglo Swiss for over 2 weeks this past May (on business); the hotel room was adequate & clean. The staff were courteous and very helpful. Breakfast service was prompt & consistent. The hotel has an indoor room around the back (in its own building) which was nice to use. Walking distance to the beach and to... More

We stayed here for three nights on a bed and breakfast basis for a conference. The area is quiet and attractive, yet near good restaurants. Our room on the second floor was clean, comfortable and very modern looking: obviously refurbished! Delighted that the windows opened so we could enjoy the spring breeeze. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff... More
