I am extremely disappointed that The Hermitage hotel did not acknowledge the fact that it was not a double bed. The Hermitage Hotel Bournemouth advertised it was a double room be WARNED!! I was expecting a double bed or else I would have selected twin beds option and pushed them together myself and save £50 in the process.

I have just returned from a three night stay at The Hermitage in Bournemouth. Excellent location right on the seafront with easy access to the pier, beach and town centre. Also a great central location for exploring Dorset, Swanage, Corfe Castle, New Forest etc etc. Free parking and excellent check in is always a good start. Recent water damage to... More

Great location, very close to the minutes and city centre saving taxi fares. However the rooms are average and quite old. Disappointed as they did not offer any facilities like swimming, sauna, jacuzi or even a gym.

Stayed here for one night only. The location was ideal - right at the pier, and with on-site car parking. Thought this hotel could do with a bit of an investment to upgrade it here and there though. I didn't like the idea of having to leave your key into reception and ask for it every time you want to... More

We spent a long weekend at the Hermitage with Family, we had a wonderful time and the positioning of the hotel is great to get out and about on foot, the best bit was breakfast so good to see real bacon and sausages they were truly great quality and very tasty, the breakfast table was kept topped up and staff...

We stayed at the hermitage for two nights 16-17 July. The hotel has an excellent location on the sea front overlooking the pier. The staff are very attentive, the food was ok particularly the bar menu. We stayed in room 413which was a sea-view room, room was ok if a little small. When we came to use the shower we... More

A true gem of a hotel in Bournemouth. Perfectly situated for all attractions and beach. Very attentive staff and delightfully appointed rooms make this hotel the best I've visited in Bournemouth. The restaurant too offers some high quality cuisine and ranks alongside the best eateries in the town. Highly recommended and would definitely suggest you stay there if visiting the... More

Booked this hotel for convenience as visiting BIC for a show. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We had explanations about what the hotel had to offer by way of dining, although we did not feel pressured as some hotels do. The rooms were beautifully decorated, very clean and well thought out with toiletries and various items that may come... More
