The Hotel staff especially booking was outstanding. Tried to get a room and everywhere was fully booked. Later Thursday the hotel rang to say they had a compact room available which I booked. They explained it was a small room. On arrival greeted by the receptionist, one of the most pleasant ladies we have met. Again they aplologised it was... More

We have just enjoyed a one night stay at The Hermitage and found it to be a wonderful and faultless experience. It is a classic hotel built on old school values and high levels of service with beautifully decorated interiors sympathetically restored in what looks like a gorgeous old Victorian building. These attributes are sometimes are hard to find elsewhere... More

My boyfriend and I have just spent a lovely weekend at The Hermitage Hotel. I booked last minute to be close to the action of Bournemouth air show, and therefore we could only get a double inland compact room as all other rooms were sold out. I was worried it was going to be really small and cramped but it... More

We've just returned from a two night stay at the Hermitage and cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. It has the best location in Bournemouth, close to the beach, gardens and town. All the staff are friendly, pleasant and helpful, from the receptionists to the dining room staff and the food couldn't be faulted. Our room was very clean and... More

What a lovely hotel! Fantastic location near the beautiful park and beach. We didn't really leave the area for three days. Friendly service and excellent food. Only downside was that the rooms were a bit warm.

We used the Hermitage as a base for us when our son got married on Bournemouth Beach at the end of May. We had a sea view room which was a little smaller than we would have liked but the view was very good. The hotel is convenient for the town and beach and has it's own car park. Internal... More

Just back from the bank holiday weekend at the Hermitage. This is a first class hotel, all staff so pleasant and helpful. Even though it was full, there was plenty of choice at the buffet breakfast and all freshly made. We ate once in the hotel in the evening and chose from the bar menu which was lovely. Our grand...

We had an excellent 3 days in the Hermitage hotel. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the location is perfect and the rooms are big. Moreover the hotel is one of the cleanest I have seen. The hotel is on the beach but you won't find a grain of sand in the hotel. It is child friendly. The breakfast... More

The Hermitage enjoys one of the best locations in Bournemouth, on the edge of the lower gardens, opposite the Bournemouth International Centre, and a stones throw from the pier and beach. On checking in the staff were friendly and attentive. My room was clean and comfortable. The shower was a little difficult to get going, but was eventually fine. Being... More

Chose to stay here for our trip to see Lee Evans at the BIC, it is literally directly opposite! However, for £186 I feel that it is quite expensive for a double room and a buffet breakfast to be honest. The walls must be made of paper as you could hear everything in the corridor and adjoining rooms. The bath/shower... More
