We have been visiting this hotel for 7 years, revisiting every year sometimes twice a year! A fantastic location, lovely walk down to Boscombe through the park that has crazy golf, a very educational play area and a nature trail of questions and answers to add to the visit. Beach is not much further from the park so the walk... More

I visited on business whilst my colleagues were all at the Mirimar. I went there for dinner and immediately found it more attractive. The Elstead was a bit tired. The room was small and noisy. Staff were friendly but I had little interaction. On my visit it seemed to be very much for business not holiday use. If I had... More

I booked this hotel on the recommendations on tripadvisor, but didn't expect much for the price. However, the hotel was a pleasant surprise, our room had nice furniture and decked out with a nice travel cot for our boy. The hotel staff are friendly and professional, and most welcoming of our 1 year old. The pool and the steam room,... More

Extremely nice hotel; clean, good size room and extremely friendly staff. Arrived late but receved a very warm welcom by the night porter. Breakfast is good and food item selection more than adequate. Highly recommended hotel and puts some of the bigger hotel chains to shame!!! Well done to all at the Elstead.

A last minute booking for business lead me to the Elstead Hotel. The single room was clean and to a very high standard, if a little on the small side. That said, the staff were very helpful and friendly. I took advantage of their pool, steam room and sauna, and would have used the rest of the fitness suite if... More
