We last visited the hotel 8 years ago, not having had an excuse for going to Bournemouth since. I am delighted to report that the hotel and staff are just as quirky as ever! What stands out is the truly attentive service from all members of staff who clearly enjoy their job and like to please. The food was superlative... More

The front of house plus the cleaning staff were very friendly, relaxed and efficient - most welcoming. Good selection for Breakfast, and no issues at all with any of our meals. Thank you and best wishes for... More

We did not stay at this hotel but we had breakfast here on both Christmas Day and Boxing Day. There were nine of us and the food was well cooked and delicious, we felt welcomed without being rushed, we will definitely go there again.

Both breakfast and dinner were great. They can make a good coffee. Their cocktails were impressive with a great range on offer. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. We would definitely stay here again.

We had been recommended the restaurant by our daughter and thought we would try it out with our friends from London. Unfortunately, whether it was an off day, but we had a poor experience. The waitress was very nice, but knew nothing about the menu when asked about the food. When we had our starters and main course some of... More

Lovely lunch time spent in the Hotel Bistro catching up with a friend. Comfortable surroundings, unusual decor but laid back and totally fitting for the "seaside". Quite edgy decor. Like it a lot. Friendly, welcoming staff. We were lucky to be able to take advantage of the two courses for 10 pounds offer but in fact had three courses and... More
