    Lovely room unexpectedly with sea view. It was warm and hot water was plentiful. Other people's experience of rooms was not so good. 5 coach loads of people crammed into one small restaurant.In my view, too many people for safety:one exit was roped off and partially blocked by a piano. An 84 year old lady couldn't even get her feet... More

    We stayed here last week end for two nights as a couple with our little dog. As we wished a room with a sea view the price was quite high but we thought it would be worth it. Room pretty basic, in need of a major revamp. Carpet dirty with a lot of old staining, walls had little holes where... More

    Stayed at the Suncliff Hotel as part of a coach trip. The hotel was warm and comfortable. The food was excellent especially the final evening when it was superb with beef, gammon or turkey as choices. All very well cooked. Plenty of choice at breakfast and the one course lunch, sausage and mash was very good. Also, as we were... More

    Nice room, free parking, good food. Swimming pool free. We did enjoy for couple of days, me and my wife. Nit far to the beach, 15 mins walk to the city centre. The staff was very friendly. We will go again when we will travel to Bournemouth. The price was really good.

    Myself and my partner stayed in your hotel back in October 2014 and we had a fabulous couple of evenings. The hotel was in a very good location, being a 10 minute walk down to the main pier and also to the main strip of bars and restaurants. The rooms are a bit tired and need a bit of loving... More

    The hotel should be called Fawlty Towers and the staff called FANTASTIC. The staff were attentive, always eager to please and working in a challenging environment! I would suggest that the staff be paid more remuneration, for the service they give, and the owners (of the hotel) place less importance on profits and invest more in their property. We came...

    We upgraded to a balcony double room and it was worth it despite the bad weather at the beginning of our stay. It is possible to have a cup of coffee sitting on the balcony of your room and enjoy the beautiful views of Bournemouth in glorious sunshine - even in February! Lots of facilities in the hotel, with the... More
