Awesome stay, fab view and very helpful staff. Despite smallish room it was well worth the money. Breakfast was included in an already discounted price and very enjoyable with good selection. Definitely would stay again.

My daughter and I have just stayed here for two nights whilst on a weekend break to Bournemouth. The thing that sells this hotel is the location, right in the heart of Bournemouth overlooking the gardens, close to the beach and the shops and the fact that it has it's own car park. We parked our car upon arrival and... More

Very clean and comfortable. Very friendly staff. Nice room overlooking gardens, quiet location but very convenient for BIC. Food average, could be better. Service was good in the dining room. Would use it again. Free wifi, tea making facilities and tv in room..

Thanks for the review. We think ‘clean and comfortable’ sums up our hotel quite nicely, and we’re understandably proud of our staff. Sorry to hear the food wasn’t up to expectations – we do try to provide wholesome home-cooked food, and we know that some guests prefer a more sophisticated menu. We agree, our location is perfect for conferences and... More

The hotel was excellent value for money, good food, clean, welcoming, with very friendly and helpful staff. Also Kirsty (manager) was very helpful prior to our visit, nothing was too much trouble and Bowlaway arranged all our matches for us.

Central location, backing onto Bournemouth pleasure gardens. I booked the small double as it was only for 2 nights, good value & was big enough. Room was clean and we had a lovely view of the gardens. Fri night there was some noise from youngsters walking thru the public gardens, but only briefly. No traffic noise. Car park although small...

The Arlington is in a fabulous location, close to the beach, pier, shops, BIC and has a great view and direct access to the Lower Gardens and balloon. Although the hotel is within walking distance of these attractions it is very peaceful. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough of you. The rooms are clean and adequate. The beds... More

We stayed for one night to see a show at the BIC. The Hotel was very welcoming and friendly, the staff were really helpful and ready to help wth a smile. The room was very very clean and well equipt. The location is great for the beach, BIC and town centre. Peaceful and cosy.

We stayed at the Arlington while attending the Royal British Legìon Women's Section conference. All the staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. In our party of four we had three with special dietary needs which were all catered for without any problems. The cost was good value for the money also the packed lunches were ideal for conference delegates.... More

A group of us were travelling to Bournemouth to go out in evening and wander down to the beach so we needed an easy cheap cheerful one night stay somewhere. The hotel was clean reasonably modern with nice friendly staff! The breakfast included was really good. Great choice and staff were helpful! The room was very small but realistically we... More
