Good hotel on Bournemouth seafront. Very good inclusive all you can eat breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good inclusive indoor pool and gym facilities. Only down point is the single small lift, if you are on upper floors.

We were a little surprised by this hotel. Being 60 I was still one of the youngest in the dining room. 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

Myself and my partner stayed in this hotel for 2nights what a mistake! We had to be moved 3times due to the rooms decor, mould, dust, rust and horrendous smells. The first room was dusty the wall radio was falling out of the wall with electrical cables hanging out. The bathroom was beyond dated and rusty fixtures and fittings. We... More

My wife and I have visited at the same time for the last couple of years. The staff are amazing and really helpful, hearing José is leaving is sad. The food is great especially breakfast. Our second visit was paid for by my mum as a present. She sadly passed just before our visit. This spurred us on to have... More

Yes the hotel is in need of refurbishment but the staff cannot be faulted. Special thanks goes out to the Office Manager Victor who couldn't do enough for us and for the Restaurant Manager downstairs - her name escapes me. You are both a credit to the hotel. The only downside was that when I had booked I made specific... More

Stayed here for the second time in three months and both visits were extremely restful and enjoyable. The staff without exception are professional, friendly and hard working, doing their best to help at all times in this large, rambling hotel. Breakfast is excellent quality and plentiful, with great choice and lovely, attentive staff. It is a shame though that the... More

The staff at this hotel were friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean and the balcony was great especially as the weather was good. Location of the hotel, on the cliff top between Bournemouth pier and Boscombe pier was good for us, being about 15 minutes slow walk to Bounemouth. We only had breakfast at the hotel but... More

Just returned from a 5 day holiday at the Suncliffe in Bournemouth. Although I rate this hotel at 10 out of 10 for room food and location I rate the staff at 12 out of 10. I have never experienced such friendly dedicated and professional staff at all the numerous hotels I have stayed at. A special mention to Jose... More

We used this for the 2014 Bournemouth Air festival, our 3rd visit to the festival, the first to this hotel. We chose this because of the desire to be in a 'chain' hotel and have a higher level of comfort and service above that of the normal B&B. The welcome was very good, and they kindly parked the car for... More

Our first time staying in Bournemouth; the Oceana Hotels are three hotels in a row on the cliff top overlooking the sea and as such, they afford a grandstand view of the Bournemouth Air Show. Their car park was invaluable especially during the air show. The staff were friendly and helpful. Being a group of hotels, it was possible to... More
