He still made us very welcome and checked us in for us to return later. Also sorted out parking permit for car park. We had a double standard room on third floor. It was on third floor... More

We had a memorable day based at the Suncliff Hotel to watch Bournemouth air display from above the crowds. We hired a penthouse balcony room as a hospitality day package. A buffet lunch was served in our room. Although aimed at businesses we booked it for a family 65th birthday celebration and it was a great success. The views of... More

We stayed one night at this hotel but we did not like our room. It was extremely small and looked out on to a dreary carpark. I recommend making sure you ask for anything but a standard room. But having said that we really enjoyed our evening meal in their restaurant. The food was brilliant and the service was second... More

We stayed at the Suncliff Hotel this weekend, arriving on Friday afternoon. The reception staff were quick and efficient and we were soon checked in. It was quite a treck to our room and we were surprised later to see that there were porters helping guests with their bags as we were not offered this service. Our room was large,... More

It may have been the timing but it seems like the majority were OAPs that had been coming for 20 years. The food was adequate as was the service. Our room was disappointing. Paid an extra 60 pound for... More
