We visited the Suncliff for two nights on 12th April. We booked a double ocean view room. Upon arrival the check in procedure was very smooth and we were given room 202. The room was large enough - it had a double bed and there was space for us to put up our son's travel bed too. The view was... More

Stayed for one night as a birthday trip. We got a really good rate for a standard double room. When we arrived at our room we were at the back of the hotel in a very small dark room. It was very dated and there were stains on the carpet. Mould on the wall and all round the window seals... More

Just back from a hen weekend at the Suncliff. Car parks were full so we parked on the seafront, but it was only £3 for all day. There were 15 of us & we booked 4 rooms of 3 & 4, which made it only £25 each!! Breakfast was included which was immense and very tasty. Our room had a... More

Stayed for three nights, desperate to escape from the rat race and spend some time by the sea. The Suncliff fitted the bill perfectly. A short taxi ride from the station, efficient check in procedure and a rapid unpack and I was on the beach around 30 minutes after stepping from the train! Budget double room was fine for one...

We've come back from a 2 night stay at the Suncliff hotel, and this has been our fourth year going there. Although it's an old building and a little tired, they do keep making improvements constantly. However it is the staff that make the stay an overwhelming pleasure to stay there. It comes highly recommended from us and I'm sure... More

Have just spent 3 nights in this hotel and could not fault anything apart from the lack of parking when we arrived. Staff were very helpful and courteous and the dining room manager was hilarious - especially with the older guests. The buffet breakfast was fantastic and they will even make you porridge if you want it. The majority of... More

This hotel is not very impressive and indeed very dated in the public areas. I wonder if it's ever been re-decorated or re-furbished since the 1950's. Reception staff friendly and helpful. In fact all the hotel staff are very accommodating and hospitable. We booked a family room, which sleeps four. Although having been decorated, the wardrobes must be from the... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave comments on your stay, I’m sorry to hear that not all aspects were what you were expected. The Suncliff is an old hotel and makes no claims to be the most modern, what we do offer is comfortable three-star accommodation in a traditional seaside hotel environment. Although not the most modern we are... More

An overnight stay at this hotel was excellent. Very helpful staff, a room with a great view and breakfast was the best I have had served to me. Over all, a great experience and I will definitely return here and recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Bournemouth

After 3 hours traveling, I wasn't in the best off moods and the reception staff were useless. they didn't tell you everything and having to give your key in every time we went for a fag is pointless. some time it took us over 10 min to get our key back. the room has sooo small, we couldn't even move...
