I stayed at the Elstead hotel for two nights for work, the hotel could do with an uplift, but the staff could not do more to help, the restaurant manager was polite and couldn't help us more if he tried. Along with the other staff, the food was spot on and the bed was comfy and the rooms were clean.... More

My wife and I decided on a weekend break in Bournemouth. We booked this hotel for Friday to Sunday as it was a reasonable cost. Our room was perhaps a little dated but was clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated in a quite road which was a plus. It was a bit of a walk to the front but... More

Nice hotel, comfy beds and friendly staff. The hotel was pretty empty as it was the day after new year so very quiet . The pool is a good size to have a swim in and there is a number of running machines to use. Breakfast was nice and relaxed with plenty of choice. The hotel is not central but... More

Clean and tidy, staff all very polite and friendly. Children are treated very positively, extra cushions offered in dining room, proper divan beds (not pullout!), and ours made good use of the swimming pool aswell. Breakfast room was nicely relaxed with attentive but not rushed service and a good choice of hot food which was regularly cooked and replenished. A... More
