We stopped in the penthouse suite. The room look slightly dated however the view and baloney were excellent. We had breakfast which was standard. The lift to the top floor was used by staff and guests,so therefore at busy times it was best to use the stairs.

Arrived at the hotel for three night break with my partner. Pleasantly surprised with the look of the hotel and ample parking. Check in was faultless and we were greeted by a smiling young lady called Sam. There were three people there but Sam was the only one that looked up and give us her full attention. ( come on... More

At £42 an night for £B&B it's hard to go wrong. set back from the cliff top one gets wonderful,bracing, views of the sea. Relatively flat walk along the top it is ideal for those `getting on`. Finding this hotel is easy as you're not in the town's conurbation. Parking is not simple, but, three hotels here seem to use... More

We spent one night,October 12th at the Suncliff hotel and were very satisfied with our choice. We had 2 rooms for us and family both of which were comfortable with tv, tea and coffee making facilities and nice bathroom with an excellent shower and plenty of hot water. The hotel is in a lovely position on the East Cliff and... More

We have just spent a lovely weekend at the Suncliff Hotel in Bournemouth. The staff were excellent we were well looked after, the food was very good, the hotel is being painted and new carpets laid. I have just read a review which was not good at all, I don`t recognise we were in the same hotel!

On the positive side the staff were friendly - I booked over the phone explaining that I am tall and built like a rugby player therefore requesting a spacious room - at reception I asked for a room in front of the house but I was told that none were available. I proceeded to the room offered to me only... More

I have just returned from staying with a friend at the Suncliff Hotel in Bournemouth. We came with a coach trip and from beginning to end the staff were courteous, very helpful and couldn't do enough for you. The food was good and at breakfast there was a good selection, everything was kept filled up with no waiting for anything.... More

Like an old people's care home on the brink of a scandal. My wife and I stayed here on the night before the marathon, and couldn't believe how dreadful this place was: threadbare carpets, ancient fixtures and fittings, mouldy bathroom, peeling wallpaper, and worst thing was paper thin walls and ceilings which meant we heard other guests literally as if...

I have been to Bournemouth many times over the years. I was disappointed with the stay at the Suncliff hotel. The room over looking the cliffs of Bournemouth was clean and satisfactory. However, as the hotel owned hotels either side "The Cumberland" & "Ocean View" we were disappointed in on the Friday & Saturday nights with guests shouting & using... More

Dear olderessexguy, Thank you for your recent stay and your time to write this review. I’m happy to hear you found the meals, entertainment and staff excellent. However, we would appreciate if you could let us know about fellow hotel guests behaving inadequately. If we would have known we would have done something about it there and then. I hope... More
