Popular with older travellers but perfectly placed for an economical stay in Bournemouth. Ideally situated next to the central gardens and five minute walk to the pier and beach. Choose bed and breakfast if you are a foodie.

On July 13th our Senior Citizens made our second visit to the Whitehall Hotel in Bournemouth, and we enjoyed it as much as we did last year. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent with various choices for the evening meal. For breakfast there was a choice of cereals, full English breakfast. Very clean and... More

Excellent hotel, rooms were spotlessly clean and the service was excellent also. The location was great, close to shops and the beach. But the only problem i could see was there were quite a few steps to go down to get to the park, other than that, it was really nice. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

I booked to stay for 2 nights in Bournemouth and was hoping to book somewhere close to the BIC, well the location of Whitehall was spot on being 2 mins away from BIC, when I arrived I was greeted by very welcoming staff who quickly checked me in and directed me to my room. I was in room 43 on... More

Had a fantastic one night stay (wish it was longer) staff were very friendly, especially the night porter who was absolutely lovely, he let me in late from watching the amazing lightning storm on the beach...which turned into a downpour and a dash back to the comfort of the hotel!! He very kindly opened the bar for me to get... More

I stayed for one night in June 2015. Pro's: - Location. It is literally in the centre of town on top of the gardens and close to the BIC. - Wi-Fi. In all rooms and free which is really helpful. - Parking included. As it is in the centre of town parking is difficult and expensive. There is a small... More

Our location is certainly one of the best in Bournemouth, and we’re glad the wi-fi was good. Sorry you didn’t find the staircase, it is just beyond the bar, and any one of the staff would have been happy to point it out. Most of our housekeeping staff have been with us for many years and should know better than... More

Stayed here on business and the staff were all very friendly and helpful especially Dermot the night porter. The Decor was a little on the retro side, rooms were on the hot side, good shower, free wifi, they arranged us a super early breakfast as we had to leave early. Parking right outside the hotel which was good.
