I stayed on Saturday night just for a night. I was looking for a hotel that could accomodate me and my two little Jack Russells and this was perfect. My parents are staying next door but one and I was doing the run to drop them off on a weeks holiday at the Arlington, a sister hotel. You could not... More

Bril. food every day. Friendly staff. Bournemouth not so good Friday/Saturday evenings & nights - too 24/7 ish bit like Southend on sea. Therefore not so good (Fri/Sat) for oldies or those with young children. We were advised by a resident not to go to the Pier for Fireworks because of past problems - you can see the fireworks quite... More

First of all: the staff is friendly and has been very helpful to us. But nevertheless, don't be fooled by any awards promoting this hotel, as this is a fairly old building which really could use some major upgrading. Rates are cheap though. If you are just looking for an overnight stay, this could be it. But if you're planning... More

I stayed at The Whitehall from the 11th May 2014 for 5 nights having previously stayed awhile ago. I find its location and meals excellent, and the hotel is a very comfortable place to base a holiday in Bournemouth. Great value for money. It also suits my current situation ie., I bring my elderly Mum and a little well behaved... More

THe lift is spooky I think it has featured in a number of thrillers. The staff at breakfast are very friendly and helpful in contrast to checking out when I... More

Stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights with work colleagues. Really clean rooms and the breakfast is great with everything you would exoect from a fry up to cereals etc. The night porters are great and more than happy for you to head to the bar for a night cap. Would recommend highly. Also in a great location... More
