Decided to go to Bournemouth on a late booking Saturday night break. Being Bournemouth in August a lot of accommodation booked up and very expensive. The hotel is in a very convenient central location for the sea and town centre. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. Not a big room but then is adequate as a place to... More

Once again our 2 week break at the Ullswater from 26th July was fantastic, good sized clean room, good food both for breakfast and evening meal. Staff waiting on tables very professional, reception service very good. Well located for beach and bus routes, we had a lovely holiday thank you everyone at the Ullswater we will be back next year.

Never been to Bournemouth before, indeed not holiday'd in the UK for many years. This was only booked the day before and I always take a sensible view (hopefully) of all comments posted on TA We wanted a clean and tidy place to stay for 5 nights. We arrived after a long journey and checked in. We parked on the... More

Given the reviews on Tripadvisor & the "frank & hilarious" responses of the hotel manager to criticism (read the other reviews), we couldn't resist staying here for a couple of nights. So…watching our smelling, sorry spelling (we didn't have a Tettier with us who would be... More

We went to this hotel last year, myself and a friend, and raved on about the food, which was exceptional. We have just returned from Ullswater Hotel, and the food is unappertising, fish was bland and it was terrible. Poor cuts of meat was used, and some food wasn't even digestable! As my friend and I booked together, my friend... More
