Am a business person who looks for reasonable accommodation when working around the country. 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

Short walk to the sea. Parking is hit and miss got to be lucky to find a space which is just outside the hotel.. Overall a... More

Thank you to The Ullswater Hotel for accommodating 22 ladies’ at short notice for a recent overnight stay. The hotel is centrally located close to all of Bournemouth’s amenities. Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast.

The hotel is pretty clean and presentable. It is situated a short walk from the town centre and the sea front. Staff are friendly and helpful although there are several members of staff who have great difficulty with understanding English. Rooms are generally presentable and of average size. Was shocked to find that there was no mattress protector and in... More

Many thanks for feedback-however mis-informed it is! We categorically do not used processed Turkey, the bird was cooked earlier prior to your arrival. Also, we do not use Bisto-which you thought you recognised. The chefs use the oil from cooking to make fresh natural juis. Unfortunately ,with this being your first ever review we would ask that you check facts... More

Stayed for two nights last weekend. Very warm welcolme and very good value for money. Well situated for the town centre, just about 15 minutes walk straight into town or a little longer if you go down on to the sea front and walk along the prom. We arrived just after lunch time and were able to park outside the... More

Found this hotel very pleasing, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and very clean. Public rooms and large bedroom with an en suite. Short walk from the hotel to the cliff top. The only downside for the hotel is the lift is very small. The hotel has free wifi around the hotel. The menu was varied.

A great welcome, crystal clean, warm and cosy. Parking not easy but more than made up for with ideal location. My dog was welcome too! A pity that on murder mystery weekend not possible to have dinner without the murder! Fascinating pictures in the lounge of early brochure.
