Perfect location, everything we needed was just a 5 minute walk away. Lovely staff, all very helpful and polite and friendly. Breakfast was fantastic, will definitely stay here again. Great for parking too.

me and my husband have been to the Arlington twice now, we love the friendly atmosphere and the cosiness and tidiness of their rooms. It's in a prime spot looking onto the gardens and smack bang in between the beach, B.I.C and city centre. Would definitely recommend

My two sisters & I stayed at the Arlington Hotel for just one night whilst visiting family in Bournemouth.Comfortable hotel and staff were very welcoming & helpful. Lovely location, with the park, sea & shops close to hand.

Couldn't fault this hotel or the staff. Best location ever. We were made welcome on arrival and throughout our stay. We had a small double room facing the park at the back of hotel, very nice indeed. Only had bed and breakfast which was very good.

Could not fault this Christmas break. Had not been sure what to expect in a smaller hotel than normally used at this time of year but from the moment we set foot over the door it exceeded our expectations. The staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive, never had so much attention nothing was too much trouble. Food was... More

We have an annual trip to Bournemouth in December and this year we couldn't get into the hotel that we nomally stay in. After booking the Arlington's sister hotel we were told that we had been moved to the Arlington. We had a very nice room, although a little compact, but as we were only staying one night that was...

Convenient to the town centre, Winter Gardens, the BIC and the beach. Clean in every respect not a speck of dust to be found anywhere. Cosy with 60's\70's seaside charm in the breakfast room, bar and rooms. Considerate staff in all respects especially the night porter. The decor probably needs updating in the future.

We spent a night in the Arlington on Friday 12th December and were very impressed from our warm welcome at reception to our room. We booked a small double room which was quite a good size with a king size bed and nicely decorated with plenty of storage space and bathroom with a full size bath and shower. Breakfast was... More

Thank you for a lovely review. If you do stay with us again please just let us know if you’d like a larger breakfast – we’d hate to think our guest are going hungry. More

We stayed here for one night. Warm welcome, nice big room which was very clean. Breakfast was delicious with fast service and tasty food. Great location with short cut through gardens to town centre. We would definitely stay again!

We were looking for a Turkey and Tinsel Monday-Friday break and found this on the net. We were keen to try it as my parents used to stay here on Golden Rail holidays around 30 years ago. I can see why they liked it. Good clean rooms, good food and friendly service, and the location with direct access to the... More
