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

Had a great stay - staff very friendly and helpful. Easy access to park and beach. Despite its central location it was also really quiet @ night despite the fact that Bournemouth @ Easter was absolutely heaving. Beds were comfortable which is not often the case. All in all would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here on Monday night and we absolutely loved it. The hotel is in the most perfect location for you to enjoy and explore Bournemouth. The staff are all amazing, especially Alex in the bar, who put up with our constant questions. There are lots of comments about the interior and the decor, but I loved the way that... More

So glad you enjoyed your trip to Bournemouth. You’ve picked up on the two things we’re most proud of – our location and our staff. We’ve passed your comments on to Alex, and he was really pleased! Thanks for the review. More

Stayed here last Friday night while taking in a show at the BIC. Excellent location 2-3 minutes walk from BIC and close to town centre and beaches and free parking a bonus. Room was very clean and comfortable although on small side but good view across the gardens. Decent breakfast. We got this room at a discount and represents very... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Our location is certainly one of the best in Bournemouth for shows at the BIC, and we often have Show Break Special Offers, so please check our prices when you’re planning a trip to the BIC or Pavilion. More

The location of this hotel is great - with a onsite carpark (which is very handy in Bournemouth) and easy access through the gardens to the main Bournemouth Park which is central to everything. The room was fine - a little dated - please remove the old radio thing on the wall! - but very clean, with a small tv... More

Thanks for your review. We’re sorry you had trouble with our wifi - the wireless code is available from reception. The path to the gardens does have stairs and is unsuitable for wheelchair use, but the route via the main entrance is wheel chair friendly and only slightly longer. More

One of the best locations in Bournemouth. Hotel directly overlooks the crazy golf in Lower Gardens. Short cut path down through hotel garden (not wheelchair/disabled friendly) takes you right to the public gardens, from then on a short flat walk to shops or beach/pier. Hotel itself has free car park and a bar/lounge area and 3 floors of rooms, lift... More

We’re obviously a bit biased, but we’d have to agree that we have one of the best locations in Bournemouth! Thanks for the great review and the recommendation! More

So pleased that you like us enough to keep coming back, thanks! Our proximity to the BIC, and our free parking does make us a pretty good base for theatre trips. We hope to see you again for your next theatre break More

We booked this hotel for a Saturday night whilst visiting family in Bournemouth. The location is absolutely perfect - looking over the gardens, 5 minute walk from the beach and the town centre. However the whole place feels very much stuck in a bit of a time-warp! The Reception area had a certain mid-century charm - and it could be... More

Thank you for such a comprehensive review. We take all our reviews seriously, and we have started serving breakfast until 10am on most weekends now. Similarly, late checkout can be arranged. Some of our guests have been coming here for years, and enjoy the familiarity of everything being the same. We try very hard to maintain the balance for those... More
