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

We stayed two nights at the hotel and had a very nice time. The rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly and the location is excellent: very close to the BIC and to the beach, aquarium etc... It's very good value for its price. We were very impressed how friendly and helpful everyone was. The staff at reception, breakfast... More

We stayed at this hotel several times some years ago but this was our first visit for about twelve years. This time it was just for an overnight stay as we had tickets for a show at The Pavilion Theatre which is just a few minutes stroll away through the gardens.There are new owners since our last visit and they...

We are really pleased with our new floors, and we’re glad you noticed them. If you decide to stay with us again we would be happy to offer you a larger room and you... More

Stayed for just one night to go to the BIC which was very close. For an older 2 star hotel, the standards were as expected for the price, small clean room overlooking the Winter Gardens, maybe due a little refurbishment. Friendly staff, free car parking, but breakfast only served until 9 and check out by 10 seemed a little early.

Sorry you thought breakfast and checkout were too early. Our breakfast is freshly cooked for each individual order, which means we can’t offer the extended breakfast hours of some hotels who have a buffet service. We will always try and accommodate late breakfast and late check out if we can – please ask when you check-in. We hope you enjoyed... More

There is a back entrance to the gardens which are a huge attraction. When we were there they had a light festival in the gardens that was spectactular. The staff are... More

Thank you for your positive review. We are extremely proud of our staff, and so pleased that you appreciated their efforts. Our maintenance department have sorted out the wallpaper issue so we hope you’ll come back and stay again sometime soon. You certainly saw Bournemouth at its best – that ‘light show’ in the Gardens was breath taking. More

We stayed for 4 nights during the Air Festival. Our room 16 which overlooked the carpark was a small double but we were pleasantly surprised that it was a fairly big room with a lot of storage space. The room was serviced daily and it was spotlessly cleaned. The hotel is in a perfect location with easy access to the... More

We stayed at The Arlington for 4 nights over the air festival. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a lovely outlook over the gardens.
