Stayed 2 nights on a b & b basis. Having stayed here last year we knew what the hotel would be like. Room good size, clean & comfortable. This time, our room was on a different side, couldn't get wifi in the room but that wasn't a problem. Also, room was above a bar area so it was quite noisy... More

Booked and stayed at this hotel for a family weekend getaway, ideal location, just far enough away from the town centre, a nice pleasant walk, easy access to beaches etc. Hotel is very good, nice size rooms with en suite and all facilities you need. Very helpful staff and a very nice stay enjoyed by all.

Booked for one Sunday night, late summer getaway. We were upgraded FOC from a family room to a double with linked room with bunk beds & an extra en-suite shower room, perfect for couple and two children, 6 & 8. Hotel was good, recently refurbished with parking on site and less than 5 mins walk from the beach and 10-15... More

Having read some negative reviews for this hotel I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel was. We were visiting Bournemouth for the Air Show and were pleased to be staying the night so we could have a long enjoyable day. When I booked the hotel on Booking.com I was surprised that we were able to book just the... More

Booked fairly last minute and the room price had nearly doubled to £99 (usually 50 or so) for a single room. And when I say single, it was more like a broom cupboard! The bathroom was so small I could not stand facing the sink. Had to stand side-on. The shower head is approximately 4' 6" from the tray, so... More

Went to this hotel for a 3 night stay. Check in was super quick, having arrived early, we were in our room by 10:30am. Decor lovely, just been updated. Lovely staff, who seemed helpful. Thought breakfast price was a bit steep so each morning ventured down to Harvester, a 5 min walk on the beach front, where it was good... More

I stayed at the Durley Dean at the end of August to see a show at Bournemouth BIC. The room (201) was ok, a little small but it did the job. However on arrival at 2pm our room wasn't ready, despite booking for check-in at this time. Once the room was ready the water was running brown, we later found... More
