We were very worried after reading various reviews on here about whether we would enjoy our stay or not, but as we arrived at the hotel our first worry the parking was soon eased as we found a space straight away, the parking at the hotel is indeed small, but I would like to point out that after a walk...

I stayed at the Durley Dean hotel. Originally we stayed at the West Cliff Inn, in Bournemouth which was booked for two nights. On the 2nd night we were informed by staff at the West Cliff Inn that there was a water supply issue which could result in all the guests being told to find alternative accommodation. We were given... More

We usually book beda nd breakfast so were surprised to be asked for £8.50pp for breakfast on arrival. Checking the booking (through booking.com) I had missed the button to add the breakfast. Galling though to notice that an internet booking through the hotel's own website would have provided breakfast free. What we had wasn't bad, however. the food was plentiful,... More

So i had to slp without a shower. There was also a musty smell in the room, wasnt sure if it was the stained carpet or... More

Thank you for your review. I am a little surprised by your review as we have no record of your stay and no one having made any comments about their room that resemble the complaints you make in the review. Can I respectful suggest that maybe you have confused us with another hotel as there are a number with "Durley"... More

I came with 9 other people on our trip to Bournemouth on 19th July 2015, and though one pair of us drew the short straw on room size, they still found it very airy and comfortable enough to feel well rested each morning. Another two paid the extra £20 for a larger room and were SO glad they did -... More

We had booked this hotel on a deal so it was good value. Our room was big and had windows to two sides so we had distant sea view so that was a bonus. It was a bit tired but clean and beds were comfortable. We were at the end of a corridor so were not bothered by any noise.... More
