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

The hotel overlooks the main gardens in Bournemouth and couldn't be any more convenient to either the town or the beach. We booked a small double room (don't book this if you are large)and asked for a high floor over the park which is exactly what we got. The room was small, the bed was good quality ensuring a good...

Welcoming reception, helpful and courteous staff, idyllic setting and relaxed place to stay. On top of a location to die for, my wife and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bournemouth. Convenient for all the desired amenities. Ideal for holiday, recreational or business trips. Sea, sun, sand and Bournemouth Pier just a two-minute stroll through a picturesque park. Shops close...

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

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...
