I had a reunion with 3 friends of many years standing in this hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I loved everything about it from the friendly courteous staff to the comfortable lounges and lovely breakfasts (how nice to have breakfast served to the table rather than having to join a self service queue). The location is ideal, just... More

Stayed at the Whitehall again after a few years. We took a party of 54 on the first occasion and we were all happy and completely satisfied. When we were asked to make up a bowling side recently we did not hesitate and invited another six of our friends to join us. The owners Sara and Bernard are always available... More

Stayed at the Whitehall as part of a bowling touring side and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The food was excellent, as was the service and the rooms spacious and comfortable. The Whitehall is a period building with the odd creaking floorboard but this all adds to the ambience. Our entertainment for the Saturday was Annie, a local... More

This was the second year we had celebrated New Year at this hotel but sadly it did not live up to the first year. We believe that corners are being cut at the detriment to the overall experience. The hosts are very welcoming but some of the staff need some personnel skills. No interactive communication from waiting staff. We had... More

Another successful New Years party break. The ambience, the company and the staff's attention to detail as well as the welcome from mine host's Bernard & Sara. The food and accommodation were superb with excellent views across the park. I would whole heartedly recommend this hotel. This is our second new year break at Bournemouth, we have stayed at the...

Our room was spacous and again very clean. The room we had over looked the gardens with wonderful views. The hotel is located very central to excellent shopping and... More

First time to the Whitehall, for a Christmas in the UK, and we really enjoyed our stay. Nice friendly staff and the whole break went really well. Room was spacious and warm, with a great view of the adjacent park. Location is ideal with easy access to both the seafront and to the town. Lots of good food and entertainment
