The Hermitage is a very nice, slightly old fashioned but good quality hotel bang opposite the BIC and yards from the beach. I had a very small single room (which was very reasonably priced and which I had been warned about size-wise when I booked) but all the necessary facilities were there so it was all fine. The staff were... More

A lovely family room giving lots of space, free wifi and rubber ducks for the bath! Kids were happy with the hot chocolate option for breakfast drinks and also childrens menu for lunch or tea with cheesybeans being a favourite with all preferences catered for. Biscuits and free bottled water in the room eased the warm nights as we were... More

I recently stayed at The Hermitage Hotel whilst on a business trip to Bournemouth. I needed a hotel close to the sea in order to swim, and few hotels can claim to be closer to the Big Blue than The Hermitage - it sits right by the main Bournemouth pier, just three or four minutes stroll to the sand.

There are certain things you expect in a 4 star hotel as standard. The Hermitage didn't have any of them room wise. No bar fridge, no fan, no air conditioning etc. My room did have a beautiful parking lot view after you walked thru the middle of the main restaurant to get to it. However with the above said the...

Hi Andrew, I've looked at the room you occupied (604), and I'm unclear as to your comments - its a nice large room, king size bed, new furniture / decor and a new bathroom / power shower. A standard room was booked, however our best rooms, being superiors, do have many additional extras - bedroom fridge, gown, slippers, Nespresso coffee... More

This is the third time we have stayed at The Hermitage and each visit has been a delight, the rooms are clean and well presented, the food excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We certainly hope to return soon.

35 of us had a fantastic afternoon tea at the Hermitage Hotel at the end of our sunny day in Bournemouth. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive. Booking was simple and the hotel were very good at catering for different dietary needs.

The Hotel is in an excellent location, across from the sea, by the gardens and a few minutes walk from town. The Staff are well trained, young, friendly and extremely helpful. We asked for a sea view room and couldn't have had a more fabulous view facing the sea, the pier and over the gardens. The dinner was first class,... More

We booked a 'compact' room, and frankly, I'd love to see a normal room, because the compact was huge! Loads of space, lovely big bathroom, very clean. Only complaint is the lack of air con (expected in a building of this age) as the room was uncomfortably hot! Breakfast was fine, plenty of choice. We had dinner one evening in... More

I asked for a quiet room and apart from the call of the seagulls it was amazingly quiet considering the hotel is right in the central gardens/beach area of Bournemouth. The beach, shops, cinemas, theatre and restaurants are a short stroll through the beautiful gardens, in fact the hotel couldn't be better situated. The room was on the side of... More
