We have just returned back from a weekend family break at the Durley Dean hotel. The hotel is charming with staff to match. We had family room which was very comfortable for the brief moments we spent in the hotel. The location is perfect being only a short & steep walk from the beach. The room needed some maintenance (children's... More

used amazon local offer for two night stay. Staff were very efficient on arrival and allowed us to use carpark even though we were early. Room was spacious and comfortable although we were unable to get radiators to work. All the usual amenities available including use of heated pool sauna and steam room. Pool is odd shape, waisted in middle,... More

This hotel is in a real good location, within walking distance to the sea front and shops and bars. The breakfast is really nice at this hotel. The rooms are clean but a little dated, but overall was an enjoyable stay.

We were attending an activity at the hotel 12-2. Not only did we get a call saying that there had been an accident and asked if we could move the time (which I didn't agree too), we found out that there had not been an accident. THEN, at 1.35 (considering we had the room until 2) a load of men... More

Paul F, Owner at The Durley Dean Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review though I you have got the wrong hotel. There are a number of hotels in Bournemouth with the name Durley. We did not have any activities on or any events at all in our hotel let alone a hen party. I would be grateful if you could recheck which hotel you used and remove this... More

Stayed 4 nights with wife and 2yr old daughter. Check in was quick and the staff were helpful. Room was sufficient, shower, TV, tea/coffee facilities and iron and board. Breakfast was buffet style with good selection for everyone. Small gym, pool, sauna and steam room sufficient. 10 minute walk to Pier, 20 minute walk to town centre. Limited car park... More

Booked a special offer/deal including meals. Hotel okay, but rooms poor (not like the website). Food not wonderful either! Not an ideal choice for a romantic break. Pool area overcrowded. Will not be returning.

Hotel was ok but a little over priced for what we got breakfast was not included in the rate and the staff were mainly foreign and did not have any idea where the best places were to visit. All said if I visited Eastbourne again I may still use the establishment

Have stayed here three times now, all at special offers. The hotel has been refurbished but all the rooms we have stayed in have terrible squeaky floorboards, not good first thing in the morning. The buffet breakfast is quite good, it could be served a bit later, I think 9.30 is a bit early when you are on a short... More
