Don't stay here if you are with a skittle tour. We felt that we were being treated as second class guests. One of our rooms had a broken door lock, we were on the third floor and if we wanted to get into the room we had to go to reception and get a member of staff to come with... More

Toiletries were also supplied. The bedroom was... More

Just returned from 3days in The Durley Dean Hotel, Bournemouth. Staff really helpful and friendly. Food ok. Hotel needs some work done. Our room was nice but the rest of the hotel needs up dating. It looks very tired. When you buy drinks from the bar the price is different every time, even though you are buying the same drinks.... More

Fantastic hotel. Staff are friendly, rooms are well decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfy. We stayed in a family room which could sleep all 5 of us and two bathrooms was great! Kids (9,7 &3) loved the pool. Would certainly stay here again we were very impressed.

The room was comfortable and clean, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Then I took my kids down to the pool in the basement and I've never been so shocked and disgusted at the state of something in a hotel before. First of all the smell nearly knocked me out. It smelled of sewage. The whole area... More

I stayed here with my family for a skittles shoot out weekend. The Hotel was clean and very friendly. Great to have a car park. Very well positioned for the town. The rooms were clean and warm. Bathrooms small but adequate for our needs. The food was not so good! The evening meals were small portions and reminded me of... More

We stayed here on a 2 day Groupon deal on March 19th and 20th. We received a very warm welcome from friendly and helpful staff. Our room was on the first floor above the main entrance. It was fair sized room with a large bay window, so was very light and airy. The decor was fresh and modern and had... More
