Visited this hotel back in September with family. There was a wheelchair user in our party so we had to use the lifts. Very weird lift arrangement, ended up having to get out the lift at one floor and try and find another lift based somewhere else in the hotel to get up to the next floor. Not sure if... More

My fiancé and I visit Bournemouth every couple of months and always stay at the Carrington, mainly because it's always dirt cheap on late rooms. AND THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER PEOPLE!!!! We spent 5 nights there in January for £150 including breakfast. As always the room was perfectly acceptable, the staff were as they always are polite... More

Was a bit worried by reviews and asylum seekers! But, was great! For £69.50 we was upgraded to a Executive Room, 2 boxes of chocolates in room, bottle of bubbly. Usually a buffet meal But no, we had waiter service, white cotton tablecloths and napkins, special Valentines Menu, the food was gorgeous, was really happy and would go again. Breakfast... More

To be honest the hotel is fairly poor and the customer service is terrible. It is a cheap hotel decent for party guests or a stopover but nothing else. We booked this as it's close to the town centre and has a pool. The pool was closed and like everybody else we were made to drive 10 minutes to the... More

Visited this hotel many times in the past, never had any complaints. Stayed recently check in was fine, directed to our room of sorts, had trouble finding our room there was a door to where our room was but no hotel room numbers above it. Our room was small but clean. Having checked out the bathroom, disappointed and amazed, slip... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. The hotel is dated and in need of significant cosmetic attention throughout. Although our room was spacious, it was cold, had no heating and no hot water in the very poor shower. The advertised pool was being repaired although no compensation was offered. The staff seemed unconcerned by the quality of our stay... More

I stayed at the Carrington House Hotel in February 2015. We booked a very cheap last minute deal with Booking.com and so I was not expecting a luxury hotel. I believe we had the last available room in the Hotel as we checked in at midnight. The gentleman on reception was very accommodating and brought a jug of iced water... More

I've mentioned the chef first as I don't want his efforts to be reduced by this one-star review. If it was just the food I was reviewing his cooking skills would have received 5 stars. Unfortunately, the overall review is not good. I asked for a quiet room. The room I was given (number 407) was exactly next to the... More

Visited the hotel with Justgo, food was great as was the bedroom. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Could do with a larger dining room, but overall very positive for the price paid. This hotel could do with a bit of updating, but if you want the Ritz, you have to pay Ritz prices. Anyone wanting to get around the Bournemouth... More
