Stayed in Bournemouth for two nights in January, whilst attending the. FA Cup game at Bournemouth. This was a real find, and we ate on both nights (peppered steak was gorgeous) here, as well as having a post match drink before going back to the hotel. There seemed to be a real "buzz" about the place, whether for a meal... More

Stayed here on our wedding night after having our wedding reception @urbanreef! The rooms are exquisite, my parents and my brother and his wife stayed too and they loved it...this place is quirky, so the tables might not be perfect or a chair might wobble (if I wanted perfect tables/chairs I'd go sit in DFS or another furniture store!)

What a great little hotel. Perfect location for Boscombe town centre and more importantly the beach front. The staff are more than friendly and are a credit to the hotel. The rooms are perfectly described on their website - beautifully furnished and stylish bathroom. Yes the ceiling was a little low in our room but it certainly didn't spoil our... More

Googled 'award winning' hotels and found the Urban Beach - I'm so glad I did. From the minute we arrived we felt relaxed and looked after. With a really buzzy atmosphere downstairs, and surprisingly quiet, calm and tranquil upstairs in our room. Lots of little touches made our stay perfect. The breakfast, bar snacks and dinner were absolutely lovely too.... More

Really great service, and very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended and the cocktails are superb. If you need to eat there, food is very nice. Easy walking distance to all the amenities and the beach.

My partner and I stayed here for a 'working weekend' in Jan 2014 and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Friendly, laid back and very helpful - pretty much sums up all the staff we met here. The double room we stayed in was smaller than we hoped for but very well presented, clean and well... More
